puerto vallartaWhere is the safest place to have weight loss surgery in Mexico?  This is one of the most asked questions and important factors when people consider having Weight Loss Surgery in Mexico. The safest place to have your weight loss surgery in Mexico is Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for many reasons, 1) the quality of the hospitals that are located in the city, 2) the location not being on the US Mexico border, and 3) Dr. Hidalgo is one of the leading bariatric surgeons in Mexico and he and his bariatric practice Weight Loss Team are located at the CMQ Riviera Nayarit Hospital located in Puerto Vallarta Mexico.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico is a tropical paradise and a stunning destination to undergo Weight Loss Surgery in Mexico. Instead of recovering from your surgery at home or at a border town facility, you can take a medical vacation and recover on the beautiful safe beaches and in the gorgeous coastal town of

Puerto Vallarta.  Puerto Vallarta Mexico is also considered one of the safest cities in Mexico, according to the most recent National Survey of Public Safety which measures the perceptions and personal experiences of residents and tourists all over the country.

All this is the result of the security strategies and planned actions undertaken by city and state authorities to ensure that everyone who visits Puerto Vallarta not only has a wonderful but also safe vacation. They have increased their effort to make Puerto Vallarta a safe destination and have strengthened tourist and residents’ sense of security.

Puerto Vallarta is a beautiful resort town that has everything a tourist needs for an enjoyable stay: shops, galleries, variety of restaurants, bars, among many other amenities and attractions. People who had their Weight Loss Surgery in Puerto Vallarta with Dr. Hidalgo have been welcomed by the warmest and the friendliest people. UNESCO World Heritage Site has named Puerto Vallarta as the Friendliest City in the World in 2006 and to this day, foreigners feel very safe and comfortable in Puerto Vallarta.

Puerto Vallarta is one of Mexico’s most popular beach destinations with more than 3 million visitors in 2017. The growth of the city on the Bay of Banderas on the pacific coast has grown significantly recently and fortunately, Puerto Vallarta continues to be one of the safest cities in Mexico for international and national visitors.

As for the city itself, Puerto Vallarta is also a major destination for medical tourism and leads Mexico in receiving more patients than any other city.  In all different fields of medicine, Puerto Vallarta is the only city in Mexico featuring a World Class State of the Art hospital like the CMQ Riviera Nayarit while being located on the Pacific Ocean and allowing patients to have surgery in a tropical safe paradise.  The CMQ Riviera Nayarit Hospital offers patients looking to have weight loss surgery in Mexico a state of the art, fully modern hospital featuring the latest medical technology and allows patients to recover in ocean-view suites after their surgery.  No other city in Mexico offers this for weight loss surgery.

Puerto Vallarta, as you can see, is a safe, solid and viable option when choosing to have weight loss surgery in Mexico. Besides, Puerto Vallarta has easy entry and departure, no waiting at the US Mexico border in a vehicle for hours at a time, and Dr. Hidalgo and Weight Loss Team will provide you the best care in Mexico.
