Medical Considerations in Puerto Vallarta

Hopefully, you will not have a medical emergency while in Puerto Vallarta, but you can rest assured that you will find top-notch medical care in the area. Several private hospitals are available that have multi-specialty physicians, many of whom are bi-lingual.

It is worth mentioning that Puerto Vallarta has lately gained a very good reputation on all types of medical services and cosmetic procedures, such as plastic and cosmetic surgery and specialized treatments. This is why "medical tourism" has considerably increased recently.

Most hotels have professional medical assistance around the clock, but you can choose the doctor and/or hospital you prefer.

Puerto Vallarta has a variety of ambulance services and air ambulances flying to the United States and other international locations.

Some hospitals are affiliated with international insurance companies, but it's a good idea to check with your insurance company before traveling.

Some medical facilities in Puerto Vallarta are affiliated with US or other international medical services.

If you use prescription medicines, we recommend you bring a prescription of current medicines and sufficient supply to cover your stay, in their original packages and in your carry-on luggage (unless liquid). This will identify that you have been legally prescribed these medicines and make it easy to find and purchase refills, if necessary.

If you need glasses or use contact lenses, it's a good idea to bring a spare pair with you, but you can purchase eyeglasses or contact lenses at department stores, such as Costco (without a prescription), but also bring a copy of your prescription to make sure you purchase correctly.

Special dietary requirements can be filled if you plan and advise your hotel in advance. Please let your doctor and tour director know about your requirements and be sure to confirm this with your waiter at each meal.
