Puerto Vallarta, a rapidly developing medical tourism destination, offers a wide variety of natural wonders as well as a rich cultural history that travelers can experience prior to their surgery.
Whether city dweller or beach bunny, those traveling to this area have countless opportunities to soak up the sun, swim in the beautiful beaches, join a buggy tour or experience the vibrant nightlife. Whatever your interests, Obesity Solutions has compiled suggestions of the local activities everyone should check out before their surgery in Puerto Vallarta.
From sunrise to sunset, the beaches around Puerto Vallarta offer plenty of fun and relaxing activities. Tourists can sign up for boat rides that explore the coast, go horseback riding, sail, diving and snorkeling, go kayaking, or just simply walk along the beach.
To fully immerse themselves in the environment, tourists can even sign up to swim with the Pacific Bottlenose dolphins that inhabit the region. And during the winter months, between December and March, Obesity Solutions recommends signing up for a relaxing excursion around Banderas Bay to watch the Humpback whales up close and personal in their natural habitat. There is no better way to relax before surgery than watching the majestic humpback whale in the wild.
"Vallarta provides a wide variety of activities before and after your weight loss surgery, soak up the warm weather, and enjoy the spectacular sunset," says Dr. Jose A. Castaneda Cruz, owner of Obesity Solutions.
If the beach isn't of interest, visitors are also encouraged to check out the Malecon and Sculptures. Since 1936, this has been the most important historical monument in Vallarta and a favorite among travelers for quiet walks and enjoying the sunset. Here, the romantic atmosphere is set by unbelievable sunsets and enchanting stone and bronze statues and becomes the perfect complement to a relaxing evening the night before surgery.
