Winter Ixtapan Spa Bookings Now


From end October through most of winter, Ixtapan Spa is hopping with many classes. There are all kinds of groups looking for bridge? cards? tennis? And Mexico’s wonderful produce is at full harvest. Groups come from everywhere: New York to California, Canada to Florida + The Caribbean. We all come for the same reasons. We seek  complete retooling of our bodies and minds, a cleansing inside and out and a week or two weeks of doing everything for oneself. Pamper? Exercise? Eat your way to healthier lifestyle? Or just sit under a verdant tree and read the book you never had time before at home.  You will bring your Ixtapan benefits home all winter.

New and lower airfares abound: Aeromexico, Interjet and Volaris are Mexican carriers. US carriers offering Mexico City are many: American, United, Delta, and increasingly SWAir and JetBlue. Some airlines sites like www.kayak.com allow you to book on different airlines for each direction. As usual we transfer everyone in clearly marked air conditioned vans to the resort. The drive is along highways, similar to North American ones. As you leave Mexico City, you ascend into pine forests. Relaxation begins.

To book, contact our Texas office: 1 800 IXTAPAN or email them at ixtapan@spamexico.com  If you wish an upgraded room, don’t wait. www.spamexico.com

We don’t mean hip or trendy; we mean cool temperatures in Ixtapan Spa’s mountain air. The town is often confused with Ixtapa on the beach. We are in gorgeous high mountains with famously clear and spring like breezes. Summer spa deals bring special amenities:

–Perfect early AM walks and cool temperatures at night.
–Our food is always fresh and right from the farms around us,and its lightness complements Summer appetites: broiled fish and lean meats, salads washed in bottled water, lots of fresh sorbets in tropical fruit flavors. And how about an icy Margarita?
–Dress here is casual, so cotton tees work for meals. For those who like to dress for dinner, go for it. For those who like casual, that is also acceptable.
–Bottled water is free and drinks at the bar are very reasonable: $5upwards. Love the best wines and tequila? We have those options also.

Here is where to book: www.spamexico.com and call our office at
1 800 IXTAPAN to book on the phone. ixtapan@spamexico.com to ask questions also.

Getting to our resort is efficiently taken care of by our dedicated transportation staff. After you book, you give your flight information to our office in Texas. The office will arrange an optional transfer to/from the resort.

After exiting immigration and customs in the modern Mexico City Airport or the small Toluca Airport, your driver  waits with a sign. He has your name and  helps you to the clearly marked Ixtapan Spa van. From that moment on, relax as your vacation begins. The drive is on wide toll highways past soaring mountains and verdant farms. Nearing Ixtapan de La Sal, you enter a world of flowers grown for international export.

Now your only job is to enjoy yourself, begin a jacuzzi, a fitness class, a massage, or a healthy meal. Your paperwork will list fitness classes and a schedule for your treatments.

For newcomers, there is a map of the property  near the front door. Come solo or with friends, Ixtapan Spa awaits with a homegrown welcome and casual atmosphere.

Winter Woes: Don’t miss out


This winter will be Ixtapan’s busiest season with a chill looming and snow early in parts of North America. Flights to Mexico City are also busy, as the economy is brisk south of the border with global investment in manufacturing and more.

So here is the simple way to get organized. Call our office for availability. Give our welcoming staff a credit card to guarantee your spot ( they will not debit the card). Then talk to your friends and see if you can get a small group going. If not, Ixtapan staff will arrange a private transfer from the airport to the resort and your driver will be standing there as you exit customs/immigration.

Try the usual airline sites for either Toluca or Mexico City, then try some others: Google now offers its own flight deals, and kayak.com is another, with money saving combinations of airlines.

Whatever you do today, book your room at the resort and start yapping to your friends. The office in San Antonio is 1 800 IXTAPAN or 1 800 638 7950.





Ixtapan Spa for Everyone


What a special day for all Americans to welcome a Pope who opens up discussions about issues that effect all of us. At Ixtapan Spa,

we also welcome all faiths and all nationalities. It is important to our staff that so many North Americans count Ixtapan Spa as their winter “home” and we are proud of that warm feeling. If you have not been here in a while, the welcome mat is more up to date, but the smiles are the same.

Come back and see our Zen Gazebo, new fitness center and fitness class spaces, enjoy our updated menu, our mineral water exercise and tell the folks at home via our free wifi. Book today at 1 800 IXTAPAN OR


Ixtapan Spa and Hot Springs Stretch Classes

  springs   Unknown-2  Unknown-1

Ixtapan Spa has warm mineral springs next door. The Springs offer a wonderful place for a stretch after our 7AM walk. Some guests only do the mineral springs class; others do the walk and then the Springs.

Some benefits of moving in warm mineral springs are: increased relaxation, and circulation. Warm mineral springs can also relax tired muscles and improve sleep. Some people with chronic muscle pain find relief. Others with skin issues like eczema and psoriasis find help and others with rough skin get some softening. Of course you should always check with your doctor before using hot springs. And if you love them, spread the mud to help your face and neck tighten.

Mineral springs advice brought to you from www.spamexico.com Ixtapan Spa Hotel and Golf Resort. The Springs are right next door using the same entrance as the Water Park. Admission is free for the 8AM class but a small fee at other times.

Hot Weather Tips From Ixtapan Spa

Here is how we at Ixtapan Spa take care of you in Summer when our daytime temperatures are only 80ish and night time, about 60ish. We give you as much free bottled water as you want. We have bottled water at meals, in the bar and in our new fitness center. At meals, we also offer free of charge: hybiscus drinks, different teas, coffee and breakfast includes all kinds of fresh juice. Juices are sweet orange, sometimes pink grapefruit and often green cactus/pineapple mix. They are all fantastic, don’t stink on juice here.

You may ask for a giant fan in your room. You may also swap any meal for fruit and cheese or fish to make your intake even lighter for summer weather.

Finally, laundry for your fitness clothes is inexpensive, excellent and takes usually over night. Don’t over pack, for a few $dollars, you can use our laundry by handing it with the laundry bag and list to housekeeping.

Ask for your free packed lunch on departure, it will also have a bottle of juice in it along with a sandwich, fruit and dare we admit: a cookie.

Drink lots of liquids when exercising or just relaxing at high altitude. You will feel better and look amazing.
