American Illusionist Roy Horn is sporting a glowing tan after taking his first vacation since his October 2003 tiger attack.

Horn has retreated from the spotlight after he was mauled by a large cat as he performed onstage with partner SIEGFRIED FISCHBACHER in Las Vegas.

But the wheelchair-bound star was recently able to spend two weeks in Mexico with Fischbacher and LYNETTE CHAPPELL, who played the evil queen in their long-running Las Vegas show.

Horn took two nurses along to help him get through his tough rehab regimen, which included swimming in the ocean.

A pal says, "Roy makes progress each day, because he's tenaciously focused on recovering."
