1. Couples Massage at eforea Spa at Hilton Los Cabos in Los Cabos, Mexico
Tranquility? Trust us when we say you haven’t fully experienced it until you’ve slunk into a custom couples massage at eforea Spa at Hilton Los Cabos. After relaxing in a peaceful room with cucumber-infused water, light snacks, and relaxing tunes, you’ll be escorted to a couples treatment room (many of which have Jacuzzis) where true bliss awaits. With beautiful scents like lavender or eucalyptus wafting around, skilled massage therapists will work on your back, neck, arms, legs, and feet (or further customize a flow that feels great for you). Your massage partner might just leave the experience swearing he or she will make this a regular activity. After you depart the spa, the stunning turquoise waters and clear blue skies won’t hurt in keeping that calm a flowin’ either, trust us (and if you need help in that department, you can get mini massages poolside).
