The choice of spas and treatments in Puerto Vallarta is extensive. It ranges from luxury hotel spas to independent massage clinics to spa havens. You can even have a therapist come to where you are staying for a very private experience.

There are several treatments all addressing the five senses. Prices vary according to type of treatment, location and duration. If you are staying in a resort with a spa, the concierge can book your treatments or he can arrange for you to travel to one.

Every spa therapist has a unique way of treating you. If going for a massage, know before hand what you are getting and request the type of pressure. If you are unsure, you can always re-assess once your treatment has started.
