beauty treatments in airports?

The only thing that would get me to the airport 2-3 hours before a flight would be an opportunity for a manicure, bang trim or blow dry, and massage – things that can be done in 30 minutes or less. And I eagerly search airports for such services. Only – most of my layovers – especially from South America are at 5 am. So far, I have not experienced any such treat at any airport.

So I was thrilled to learn that the int’l airport in Cancun has 2 new XpresSpa’s in terminals 2 and 3, providing travelers with a full line of services including massages, waxing, facials, manicures and pedicures, open 365 days a year, with 2 shifts, 7am to 3pm and 3pm to 11pm.

You can check out the web site for all the locations – 14 so far nationwide and 6 more opening this year including Amsterdam. And best for me, San Francisco in the near future.

I will get back to you after I check out the SFO location. Meanwhile – another reason to head to Cancun!

Let us know if you have been to the XpresSpa. And please share any other aiport salon discoveries.
