Most spa and wellness centers throughout the country specialize in natural, organic and local treatments, offering everything from papaya hair masks and coconut milk rinses to chocolate body masks and volcanic mud sessions. Best of all, Costa Rican day spas are just about as affordable as they are phenomenal.
More Bang for your Buck
In Costa Rica you can find any type of massage imaginable including Thai, deep tissue, hot stone, Swedish, and even a decadent four handed treatment – when two therapists work on your muscles at the same time. Couples or friends can enjoy a double session right next to each other in the very same room. And at a fraction of the price of their American counterparts, how could anyone resist?
Have it All
Beach towns, mountain communities and upscale vacation resorts offer a truly impressive variety of spa treatments. Reflexology and acupuncture can also be tossed into the mix, as can yoga –there is no better way to relax those tense muscles than with a yoga session and a rubdown. If that’s not enough to cure your ailments, chiropractors and acupuncture specialists are also available.
Pamper yourself – you deserve it
After a luxurious day at the spa, treat yourself to a relaxing manicure and a pedicure. Both males and females will love the light massage that comes with each treatment, and not to mention the impeccable results: soft and beautiful hands and feet.
Love the Skin You’re In
Expert estheticians can assess your particular skin type and recommend derma treatments suited to meet your body’s specific needs. Locally procured organic mud, home grown aloe and freshly ground coffee are commonly utilized for their wonderful therapeutic properties.
