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

Your Autumn Ixtapan Spa Week, spamexico.com

trees outside hotel side

Autumn is a perfect time to visit Ixtapan Spa. Weather is cool when the sun is down and warm during the day when you are in our pools stretching, dancing, zumba-ing or just floating in the waters.

Foliage in our beautiful mountains changes seasonally, with Autumn greenest from Summer afternoon rains. Autumn is also full of festivals: September is a patriotic month with much painted green, white and red (the colors of the flag) during the Independence Day festival. October has The Day of the Dead and if you visit us before the actual holiday, you will still see festival signs and objects everywhere.

Whatever season you come to Ixtapan, you will enjoy our freshest food, fine spa treatments and fitness classes that challenge the fit and suit the new exerciser.

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

Weekend Tips from Ixtapan Spa

Most of our guests at Ixtapan Spa-Spa Mexico are interested in better eating and better health.
Food manufacturing is taking a new look at high fructose corn syrup and its use in many of our foods. A few seconds reading labels in the market will save you from this addictive type of sugar.

For instance, an old favorite, Heinz ketchup, is now sold under the label Simply Heinz, with  cane sugar rather than HFCS and, with low sugar under a different label. Many other traditional foods are changing to sugar and low sugar away from HFCS. But you must read labels carefully.

After you spend a week detoxing with our excellent food, natural fruit and low fat meats, you can continue your new kick started routine with a habit of reading labels.

FYI Coke labeled Mexico is made with cane sugar, not HFCS as in the US;however not all coke sold in Mexico is made with sugar. labels again.

Join us this Summer for a healthy, stressfree, head clearing week. www.spamexico.com

“Can’t Wait” is Our Guests’ Mantra




Why is it that so many of our guests return every year to Ixtapan Spa? It is, of course, the healthy experience, weather, food, inclusiveness and budget. But there is a certain feeling of being back home in Mexico expressed by guests.

Ixtapan Spa is not a brand, it is a family owned resort, offering personal service and a warm welcome from staff who know your name. The hotel is small enough that you find you way around in a day or two; but large enough that there will be surprises each year, plus secrets to learn from veteran guests.

We evolve each year and are always updating. Last year was our first with the warm mineral bath stretch, good for relaxation and arthritis and ideal after the 2 mile early morning walk.

If you have not been back in a while, come home again and see what new goodies we have for you and your health. Better yet, bring friends who will thank you bilingually.

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
