Spa treatments using fresh fruits and vegetables is a growing international trend. Clients are requesting more holistic and natural treatments, and luxury spas such as Crocodile Bay have been on the cutting edge of providing these services.  With an abundance of locally grown fruit, Costa Rica’s tropical environment is ideal for such treatments.  Besides, a massage and facial with fruit is a great way to unwind before dinner after a long day of offshore fishing or hiking in the rainforest.

Vitamins are the secret to youthful radiant skin. Not only do you want to eat your vitamins but applying them topically is loaded with benefits.  Fruits and vegetables have been used throughout the ages for skincare, and while most of us are use to applying things that come in a jar to our skin, you can also go straight to the produce aisle. Of course, great skin starts with eating right but a topical treatment could give your skin that extra boost it needs to really glow.
