Fish Spa Mexico launched a pioneering treatment in the therapeutic and wellness world, being one of the healthiest trends of the moment. Using authentic Garra Rufa fish, also known as "Doctor Fish". These tropical fish from Turkey feed on dead skin cells.You can experience the innovative "Fish Spa Pedicure", exfoliation, biological natural dermabrasion provided by the fish spa, having a great time. Garra Rufa Fish gently suctions dead cells from the outer layer of skin without touching the inner layers. At the same time, they produced micro suction massage which activates blood circulation and facilitates the regeneration of healthy skin. The dead skin is removed and the new layers of skin are more glossy, smooth and healthy. Feet:Submerged in a pond with a comfortable armchair with approximately 150 fish per person, at least 30 minutes recommended time.

We did this at the RIU Palace Peninsula and it was awesome. Plus the price was right - $20 per person for 15 mins in the tank.

Treat your feet, it's awesome. We had long delay at the Cancun Airport due to weather so we treated ourselves to the fish spa. The staff was super nice, the fish tickle a little but the result is such soft feet. I was impressed!

Is the water changed or filtered between people? Is everyone's feet washed prior to putting them in with the fish? Is it sanitary and if so, why?
