Puerto Vallarta hotel offers luxurious recovery spot for medical tourists

With medical tourism expected to be a $100 billion industry by 2012, Casa Velas Hotel and Ocean Club is expanding its medical program, combining the most advanced elective procedures with a luxurious recuperation stay.  The adults-only all-inclusive boutique hotel in Puerto Vallarta works in conjunction with board-certified, bilingual doctors of Amerimed, a network of hospitals in Mexico adhering to US healthcare standards.  Elective surgeries and cosmetic procedures such as facelifts, tummy tucks, rhinoplasties, mammoplasties and gastric bypass, botox, varicose vein treatments and much more are available.  (

After any of these procedures, Casa Velas provides a restful and relaxing retreat for recuperation where patients receive personal attention 24-hours a day from the staff as well as visits from qualified medical personnel to attend to post-surgery needs.  Fresh, creative, and nutritional cuisine comes from the resort’s on-site garden, which holds over 30 varieties of fruits, vegetables, and herbs. Meals and personalized diet plans, comprised of all-natural ingredients, are created by Casa Velas’ Wellness Chef Fernanda Rábago, who attended the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu in Paris. 

For overall health and wellness, Casa Velas features the Week of Wellness Package, which includes a medical consultation and physical exam upon arrival, two acupuncture treatments, Yoga sessions, curative spa treatments, and unlimited use of the spa’s hydrotherapy area. The package also provides personalized holistic menus to heal, rejuvenate, and energize the body and mind.
