The current rate as of posting is $90 USD per person. Transportation from Puerto Morelos is included, or Valerie can arrange transportation for you from your resort. (We were staying in Playa del Carmen, and paid a taxi approximately $55 for roundtrip fare.)
Once we disrobed (you may undress to your comfort level, and full nudity is acceptable for all treatments), we were escorted to the Temazcal, a small structure where we enjoyed time in the sauna followed by a cold shower. We repeated this process twice, gabbing with other travelers as we took turns rinsing the heat away in the outdoor shower.
Following our time in the Temazcal, we made our way to our (generally) secluded area to enjoy a relaxing massage and mud treatment. This tropical paradise felt like the perfect oasis to enjoy time away together as new parents.
The final treatment for our spa day was a bath to soak away the mud. Being bathed as an adult felt both awkward and soothing, but we went with it and enjoyed a breeze through the palms and the opportunity to escape our day-to-day routine.
We enjoyed our time away from the resort, and we found the treatments to be both enjoyable and a fantastic value.

Reasons We Love
During a four-night stay at the nearby Iberostar Paraiso Lindo, my husband and I were presented with an offer we couldn't refuse: a summer upgrade special to the Iberostar Grand Paraiso Beach, which represents the ultimate in luxurious, child-free splendor. (My coworkers just go on and on about this place.) Because we also happened to be celebrating our sixth wedding anniversary (okay, I am kidding no one...we would have upgraded without an excuse) our arms needed no twisting to make the change to the resort for our final two nights in Mexico.
My husband and I had the opportunity to visit the Iberostar complex as an independent fam - a trip designed for travel agents to experience various destinations and resorts so we can best serve our clients. We were booked for four nights at the Iberostar Paraiso Lindo, 1/4 of the extensive Iberostar complex located approximately 30 minutes from the Cancun airport. The Lindo shares the property with two other family-friendly resorts: the Paraiso del Mar, the Paraiso Maya, and also the luxurious adults-only Grand Hotel Paraiso Beach.
