Los Cabos is situated in a dry desert climate so guests should be sure to stay hydrated. With this in mind, the chlorophyll water offered at the Spa at Esperanza acts as an oxygen booster, blood cleanser, and blood builder. Add one tablespoon of liquid chlorophyll to a glass of filtered or spring water to bring the Esperanza spa experience back home with you.
Benefits of Lime
Lime is used in many of Esperanza’s spa treatments as well as our custom blended in-room bath products. Lime juice and its oils are beneficial for the skin and entire body, protecting against infection, aiding fat metabolism and providing a potent antioxidant boost. A glass of warm water with the fresh juice of one lime is refreshing, detoxifying and – because of the citric acid present in lime – promotes fat burning.
