This spa specializes in fish therapy. This unique spa treatment, which rapidly growing in popularity, makes almost everyone laugh and relax. American owned and operated, the spa sets an extremely high standard for hygiene -- the water is 100% sterilized every 5-7 minutes using UV lights in each individual tank to kill any bacteria.

Offerings and Costs

Fish therapy feels like little vibrations or bubbles in a foot spa. The fish are toothless carp native to the Middle East, that are treated like pets. After a few minutes of ticklish fun, the fish provide a unique form of reflexology on the feet while everyone becomes more and more relaxed. Appointments can be made by email or by phone.

For 15 minutes with your feet being treated by fish, the cost is just $20 (USD). For 30 minutes the cost is $30, 45 minutes is $40, and one hour is $50 (USD). Treatments generally include a souvenir video and a foot rub/exfoliation treatment which leaves clients with a feeling of well being and wonderfully soft feet.

Hours and Policies

The spa is closed on Sundays, but is open from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. throughout the rest of the week.

Credit cards may be used for advance payments through their website, but are not accepted at the spa -- cash and Pay Pal only.

Location and Contact Information

Located in Southern Cozumel, 9.4 miles south-southwest of downtown San Miguel, Islander Fish Spa is on the premises of Mr. Sanchos Beach Club, and is a great place to know about if you're planning to stay in this neighborhood. If you're wondering, San Miguel is nine miles (14 kilometers) to the northeast.

A taxi is the easiest way to reach the spa -- it costs about $16 (U.S.) each way for up to 4 passengers.

Given its location, one of the nice possibilities after spending an afternoon relaxing at the spa is sharing a meal at one of the nearby restaurants. El Caribeño, which serves Mexican fare, is one of the closest places where you can eat.
