For those seeking a vacation that emphasizes healthful activities, Puerto Vallarta is the ideal spot. Many visitors travel to the city to explore the legendary landscape, or simply to partake in a good old-fashioned tequila tasting. But the different wellness retreats that have been designed to improve physical and mental well-being, all offer a unique experience that will kickstart your journey to better health.
Designed to strengthen the body and enrich the mind, modern practices encourage integrative wellness with many fitness classes, wellness workshops, educational lectures and holistic therapies on offer. Unique classes include sound healing, acupuncture, water dance and biodynamic craniosacral therapy.
The destination will further cement its status as a wellness destination as it hosts the Mexico Health & Wellness Travel Show, which is one of the largest international medical tourism conferences. The show brings the best experts to share their vision on global trends in the medical tourism industry and discuss new ideas, treatments and procedures in an interactive environment that fosters innovative management, marketing and sustainability solutions.
This coastal city stretches around the sparkling blue Banderas Bay which is backed by lush palm-covered mountains. And each year thousands come to laze on the dazzling sandy beaches, browse in the quirky shops, and wander the picturesque central streets. Contemporary Puerto Vallarta tours include boat trips, horseback rides, diving trips, and some of the best hiking available. But above all else, the city’s health and wellness industry remains the most enticing reason to visit.
