Get-Away Dialysis / Puerto Vallarta

HOLA!  ANOTHER SPECTACULAR VACATION DESTINATION IN MEXICO     Get-Away Dialysis / Puerto Vallarta has been established in partnership with Hospital San Javier, in the spectacular Paradise Village Resort (Nuevo Vallarta), to the north of Puerto Vallarta.

CLINIC   Our clinic (located in this brand new hospital) has been built right on the Paradise Village Resort grounds, which are located on a private peninsula.  It’s simply a short stroll, or golf cart ride, down a palm lined lane from the resort accommodations to the clinic!

Ruth, a Renal Nurse who formerly worked at St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver, is the Nurse in Charge of the Puerto Vallarta clinic.  The Get-Away Dialysis / Puerto Vallarta clinic has been accepting bookings as of the last week of December, 2011.



Get-Away Dialysis clients are free to stay in whatever hotel or resort they choose, but will receive preferred (discounted) rates at Paradise Village .  There’s a wide range of activities to keep you busy at the resort throughout the day.  When you arrive, be sure to visit the travel agency in the corner of the main lobby to check out the tour and activity options for your visit.

You could start your day with the breakfast buffet by the beach at the Tulum Restaurant.  Then, those who want to soak up the sun can choose between swimming, wind sailing, tennis (or ping pong under the palms), world class golf, jet skiing, scuba lessons or perhaps renting a bicycle.  Then again, there’s always a beach chair.

And at the end of the day, it’s a short walk to supper at Il Pescatore (an Italian Restaurant) beside the marina.  As the sun sets and the lights on the palm trees beside you glitter, you’ll understand why so many visitors feel that Puerto Vallarta is a slice of Paradise!

We encourage you to visit our Paradise Village Photo Gallery.  Enjoy! And then contact our office and learn more about this extraordinary opportunity!

Who would have guessed that John Huston’s filming of the movie “The Night of the Iguana” on a remote beach south of PV in 1964 (and Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton cavorting about), would ultimately propel Puerto Vallarta to international fame as a tourist destination?

The city rests on the side of Banderas Bay, the second largest bay in the Americas.  Some of the hills surrounding the bay are still covered in lush jungle that reach down to hug its lovely beaches.  The beauty of the area brings visitors from all over the world.  And Puerto Vallarta offers those visitors many things to do.

You may want to start off with a city tour.  You’ll get a far greater feel for the city and visit areas you’re just not likely to see touring on your own.

Whale watching is popular with visitors. Banderas Bay has three types of whales that swim in its waters, depending on the time of year.  Humpback Whales visit from December to March, and its interesting to note that the bay was originally named after them back in the 1600’s.

A tourist favorite is the Rhythms of the Night Sunset Cruise and Candlelight Dinner Show.  This is about a five hour adventure that takes you to the isolated cove of Las Caletas. John Huston used to have a home here. There are also daytime excursions to this area, where you can snorkel, kayak, swim or do nature walks. And end with a massage!

The Puerto Vallarta Botanical Gardens is approximately a 12 kilometer drive out of town and features 3000 different species of plants.

If you wish to stay in town, walking the spectacular malecon (ocean-side boardwalk) is likely to be one of the highlights of your visit.  The malecon is lined with amazing bronze sculptures and astounding sand castle creations!  It links beaches, restaurants, galleries and shops, and can be enjoyed under the warm sun, or when reveling in glorious sunsets.

No visit to Puerto Vallarta would be complete without a visit to Our Lady of Guadalupe Cathedral.  Be respectful of what’s taking place, as this striking structure, that took 12 years to build (started in 1929) is still the heart of the community!

Lots to see and lots to do!  The endless activities that Puerto Vallarta has to offer will keep you entertained from the moment you arrive to the moment they drag you kicking and screaming back to the plane.
