[ 38 ] • DAYSPA • december 2016 spa hopping by Vicki Arkoff M exico will forever hold a special place in my heart because it introduced me to the pleasures of the spa. I was a broke 20-year- old on a girlfriend getaway to Ensenada in the country's Baja California peninsula, a two-hour drive south of San Diego. Our budget beachfront hotel featured 50-minute palapa massages for $19. It was an off er I couldn't refuse, and the experience hooked me for life… even if I've never again had it so good for so little. I've been exploring Mexico's tantalizing variety of spas ever since, from the lavish Pacifi c resorts of Mazatlán and Puerto Vallarta, to the Yucatán peninsula gems such as Merida and Tulum, to the numerous inland, colonial-era pueblos mágicos (magical towns) such as Comala and Tequila. My most recent foray took me to four destinations to experience the most authentic spa journey this incredible land has to off er. Four fabulous properties showcase Mexico's rich spa heritage.
