Lu'um Ka'anab

The spa at Lu'um Ka'anab called the Ixchel Jungle Spa, opened in 1994 with a mission to bring traditional Mayan healing practices to the people who visit the region regularly. Mayan women keep the spa in operation, offering what they call a "gift from the Mayan Gods" with each treatment you receive.
