A weekend spa getaway to Riviera Maya was just what I needed to shake the cooling temperatures on the East Coast. Situated on a stretch of secluded beach bathed by the Caribbean Sea, Ceiba del Mar is my new go-to spa resort in Mexico.

The Spa at Ceiba del Mar boasts innovative holistic treatments that leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Spa offerings are infused with essential oils and naturally derived extracts chosen by your therapist to meet your individual wellness needs.

One of the many unique experiences offered at Ceiba is the Temazcal, an ancestral ritual aimed at purifying and renewing the body. Staged on the beach at sunset, hot volcanic rocks, steam and aromatic herbs offer an enlightening experience inside of a terra cotta hut. 

Pampered Passenger Picks:

Cocoa Ritual - This three-step treatment of exfoliation, massage and body mask is centered around Mexican cocoa. 

Mayan Goddess Scrub - Expert hands scrub and moisturize your body with a rich mixture of avocado oil, beeswax, honey and native plant seeds.

Deluxe Facial - Skin is treated with a light peel, hydrating mask and the revolutionary D’Arson therapy, which helps to significantly reduce the appearance of lines. My skin has never looked better!
