Fondest memory: One of my most unforgetful memories about Cancun was my 2 hours spent at the spa in the Moon Palace. With our all inclusive package David and I got a back massage, and a free pedicure. The back massage was priceless. Edith, the massuse, was fabulous. She started off by gentling rubbing my back and massaging tense points around my shoulders and upper back. Then she used her forearm to massage harder and deeper into my lower back which felt so good. She massaged my arms, my hands, my legs, and my feet (which by far was the best part of the massage). The foot massage was like 10 minutes in heaven because I had never had someone rub my feet like that and it feel so good, yet not tickle. After the massage I was so loose I felt almost like a bowl of jello. Every part of my body felt so relaxed and so at ease. Next I got my free pedicure, which if you haven't gotten one I recommend (yes even guys, trust me on this one) The pedicure was amazing. I enjoyed every second of having my feet soaking in a warming bath, and rubbed with moisturising lotions and oils. In the end she asked me if I wanted any polish on my toes and I looked at her and laughed. I thought she was joking but she was being serious. I came back with a quick no thank you and told her that I was fine. I think she thought I was being rude, so I quickly explained to her that everything was great, and that I just didn't want any polish. She seemed to understand and then off I went. This is a must do, both activities, if you get the oppurtunity. One last neat thing, is that you can request on of the back massages on the actual beach, and they will do it out there
