Because Living Well is the Best Revenge

What better place to begin, continue or enhance your well being than in beautiful Puerto Vallarta? Whether you are here on vacation or here to stay, the many health and beauty services available in Puerto Vallarta will keep you feeling fit and looking absolutely marvelous.

As with any international travel destination, Puerto Vallarta offers an unsurpassed menu of beauty treatments and medical services that will keep you feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and revived. In addition to the availability of the latest techniques and technologies, the costs of these services are dramatically less expensive than in the States.

Bilingual medical, dental, chiropractic, and physical therapy services, as well as modern hospitals with high-tech equipment and fully accredited physicians, assure that patients can expect the same quality of health care in Puerto Vallarta as they would receive in the US – and prescription drugs are readily available, and at reasonable prices!

Puerto Vallarta is also home to dozens of gyms, spas and fitness centers that offer day packages, vacation packages and even full memberships for those of us who live here year-round. Local beauticians know all the latest hairstyles, coloring, skin and nail care techniques – and these beauty treatments cost about a third of what it would cost at home.

Vacation surgery is gaining popularity, and since most of these procedures are relatively quick, it’s easy to take home not only a tan but a little tucking as well. Liposuction, tummy tucks and other ‘remedial measures’ cost less than half what they do up North, yet they’re staffed by highly trained and board certified professionals.

Puerto Vallarta has a competent, confident and cutting-edge medical community. And since prominent hospitals, world-class gyms and spas, and well-known beauty salons continue to be attracted here, it’s easy and affordable to pamper yourself with professional health and beauty treatments that’ll leave you looking, and feeling, like a million bucks.
