The first-class spa is surrounded by beautiful landscapes, clear blue skies, and picturesque mountains, and offers numerous revitalizing services sure to enhance the mind, body, and soul. Tubac’s stunning 18th century mission-style wedding chapel and its selection as Best of Weddings, 2011 by The Knot make it a popular spot for weddings.
