Cactus massage

Have a love for the desert? The Hakali massage at the Four Seasons Resort in Punta Mita, Mexico, uses the nopal paddies of a cactus plant to knead your tired muscles. But don't worry, the paddies are de-needled. For $245, a warm meringue made of cactus, tuna (the blossom of the cactus) and pulque is blended with tequila to hydrate the skin. As the Four Season explains, "It will help to remove toxins and re-hydrate your skin, leaving you feeling completely rejuvenated."
