Home to dense jungles, towering waterfalls, 16th century colonial cities that have played a major part in the elaborate history of Mexico, as well as diverse native cultures and Mayan pyramids, Chiapas Mexico is on the verge of becoming the country’s hottest travel destination.
The small town of Palenque, however, has taken a different approach to the contemporary vacation experience. If you’re looking to escape the stress of everyday life and indulge in some proper rest and relaxation during your next holiday, then a wellness retreat here is just what you need.
“Salus per aquam” – meaning health and wellness through fitness and hydrotherapy, is the wellness philosophy embraced by the luxurious Palenque Spa at Paradise Village Resort.
Palenque spa has over 20,000 square feet (1,900 square metres) of wellness care facilities offering an extensive menu of specialized hydrotherapy, therapeutic pools, aromatherapy massages, European facials, and detoxifying body treatments.
Chan Kah Resort and Maya Spa, on the other hand, is situated amidst 50 acres (20 hectares) of jungle and is in close proximity to some of the finest waterfalls in Mexico. Hundreds of birds make their home around this comfortable and well-equipped property. And aside from being the closest hotel to some of the most popular destinations on tours to Palenque – such as the local archeological site – Chan Kah Resort and Maya Spa features great facilities, including swimming pools and a restaurant where you can enjoy a relaxing meal with your family. Those traveling on business may wish to take advantage of the onsite event facilities too.
Palenque is a gold mine for health and wellness. With walkable streets, clean air, a comfortable year-round climate, easy access to fresh fruit and vegetables, excellent and affordable healthcare, a welcoming social network of expats, and a plethora of activities, this village encourages healthy living.
