I started my spa afternoon with an hour of the hydrotherapy circuit, which consists of a sauna, steam room, a cold plunge pool, showers, and a large swimming pool surrounded by lush tropical views. In between plunges, I took time to relax within the pool area beneath an all-glass ceiling and enjoy the afternoon rain and the swaying palms above me. Cayo Levantado has 4 restaurants and 6 bars, together with a ocean-front Japanese-Peruvian eatery, Carey. Another highlight is Santa Yuca, an informal restaurant nestled at the coronary heart of the island, next to a vegetable garden. Santa Yuca takes a slow meals method to dining, which implies that the dishes are ready with recent, sustainably sourced local ingredients. I beloved the grilled watermelon salad with avocado cream and feta cheese crumble.
