Wellness Tourism in Puerto Vallarta

Wellness Tourism in Puerto Vallarta

Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board
June 26 2014

A little over two weeks before the start of the summer vacation season, the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board held a press trip on the topic "Wellness in Vacations," which has become one more reason to visit Puerto Vallarta.

Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, Glamour, Grazia and The Robb Report were among the media outlets in attendance; all of these are publications with great national scope and readers interested in the Health and Wellness segment.

Participants stayed at The Puerto Vallarta Westin Resort & Spa Puerto. In recent months the resort has created unique experiences through its Wellness Movement initiative, for both guests and residents of the port, a natural extension of its historic commitment to health and wellness. The Puerto Vallarta Westin Resort & Spa is known for offering various activities to renew the body and spirit.

Wellness editors participated in a series of activities such as a Hatha Yoga class and personalized massages at the host hotel. They were given the opportunity to grow their own Earthbox© orchards within the new organic Se Verde (Be Green) center, taught by Dr. Sofia Ramirez.

There they also discovered a beautiful area with a great variety of flora and fauna, the idyllic Puerto Vallarta Botanical Gardens, followed by a holistic Temazcal experience in Amantli. Between the sea and the mountains, Puerto Vallarta offers privileged natural surroundings that encourage rest and physical and mental renewal; it is an ideal option for those who wish to combine a journey of bonanza and fun.
