Ixtapan de la Sal, located 65 miles west of Mexico City, is known for its medicinal waters, and this FAM will make the most of it with its focus on fitness, yoga, spa, weight loss and group and FIT business.

This “Magical Town”—its official denomination given by the Mexican Ministry of Tourism—enjoys a balmy climate and has a quaint historical town center and a lovely central plaza and gardens. The town sits at 6,100 ft above sea level in the Sierra Madre mountains, making it an all-season destination with a reputation for wellness. On this FAM, you will learn to be a Group Leader at the Ixtapan Spa, Fitness and Yoga Resort, earning up to 21 percent commission.

The resort spreads out over 13 acres of gardens and has three spas, two heated pools, tennis courts, a fitness center, a yoga gazebo and Roman baths with warm, natural mineral waters. The rooms are all suites with balconies, and all have a water view. The resort boasts a new building with 108 Junior Suites and 48 remodeled rooms across 12 villas.

There are two dates for the Spa Classic package (and this fam): March 21 – 28, 2023 (seven nights) or March 21-25 (four nights). Price is 50 percent off the brochure rates: $980 double occupancy/$1150 single for the seven nights; $765 double occupancy/$625 for four nights.

The package includes three daily meals (spa or non-spa cuisine), bottled water and a mid-morning consomme; round trip transfers from the Mexico City International Airport (MEX) to the resort; spa treatments (massages, facials, reflexology, loofah, mud, etc.); daily walks, fitness classes in a modern gym and in the two heated pools and the warm mineral water pool, and yoga in the gazebo; access to private Roman baths with warm mineral waters; tennis lessons; government taxes (17 percent) and tips (10 percent); and all bottled water.
