Weekend Tip from Ixtapan Spa

While you are here, we encourage you to drink lots of water ( as many bottles as you wish are put in your room). Here are some of the drinks we do not suggest:


Vitamin Waters:  Because these waters are fortified with vitamins and other nutrients doesn’t negate the simple fact that they are loaded with sugar and other artificial additives. A single bottle of Vitamin water contains 33 grams of sugar, more than most 12-ounce cans of regular soda.

Coconut Water: This is the newest craze, made famous by celebrities. Coconut water does have  more potassium but many studies show that it is not as hydrating as claims. Studies show that this water might taste good, but it is not better for you than regular tap water.

Carbonated Water: This is not bad or good for you, and many enjoy the taste. Some spring waters that are carbonated, like San Pellegrino do have more minerals and calcium.

So drink away at Ixtapan Spa, one of the many ‘inclusions’ in your package is free bottled water.
