Looking to stay fit while on vacation in paradise? Amstar dmc‘s fitness guru Dorte Nielsen brings you some top wellness options in Cancun.
What does wellness mean to you? For me it’s a combination of exercising, eating healthy, delicious food that the body loves, and pampering myself with spa treatments. Being on vacation is the perfect time to include at least one day for wellness and just feel good, in harmony with yourself, and reloaded with new energy.
In Cancun, there are many options for this. This Caribbean destination has it all: spas, restaurants, and gyms, both in the hotel zone and downtown! Let me share my preferred places with you, hopefully they’ll inspire you!
Exercise is wellness

In all three gyms, you can buy a day pass and enjoy all the facilities, including yoga, steam room, and sauna. Of course, you can also choose to make a fresh morning walk at the beach your exercise of the day, or have a good swim in the beautiful Caribbean Sea.
Spas for the ultimate wellness
Gem Spa – hydrotherapy for wellness – Secrets the Vine Resort & Spa, Cancun
Cancun is a mecca of spas where you can indulge to the fullest. The most luxurious and complete spas from my point of view are the ones at the Secrets The Vine, the Aqua Hotel, and the Grand Coral Beach. The Grand Coral Beach Gem Spa has a truly sublime hydrotherapy program. Besides the mentioned spas, I’ve been told that the Hard Rock Hotels and Palace Resorts spas are also excellent choices. And of course you can discover many more relaxing havens in other hotels.

Lastly, what better than to indulge in healthy and delicious food to conclude a wonderful day for the body and soul? In downtown Cancun, there are two restaurants specially focused on health: Vegan Planet and 100% Natural. The first stands out as the only restaurant completely free of animal-derived food in Cancun. 100% Natural on the other hand, has an abundant menu of deliciously healthy plates at very good prices. You could also enjoy the most delicious and fresh seafood at Cenacolo Mare or Fred’s, both in the hotel zone and definitively two of my favorites!
The establishments I mention here are my personal preferences and do not necessarily reflect your taste or even the opinion of Amstar dmc.
