THE MANY BENEFITS OF MASSAGE IN PUERTO VALLARTA

By

Going to the spa to get a massage feels like a luxury or special treat for many people, but did you know there are many scientifically proven health benefits of massage? Just some of the medical conditions for which doctors recommend massage include chronic back pain, anxiety and stress, the treatment of soft tissue injuries or delayed onset muscle soreness, sleep issues and improving high blood pressure.

But beyond medical reasons, getting a massage can enhance your Puerto Vallarta vacation in many physical and psychological ways, including reducing muscles soreness or stress from travelling, helping relieve jet lag, stimulating your lymphatic system and improving skin tone after the dehydration of air travel, and just for general relaxation to help you ease into your holiday.

CHOOSING AN EVENT PHOTOGRAPHER IN PUERTO VALLARTA

By

Many of our guests stay in our luxury vacation rentals in the Puerto Vallarta Romantic Zone to celebrate a wedding, anniversary or other special event.  And while we can promise that your stay at Pinnacle Resorts will be memorable, you may want to consider hiring a photographer for your event or wedding in Puerto Vallarta. Having hosted many public and charity events, our Pinnacle Resorts team has some suggestions for choosing a photographer in Puerto Vallarta for your special occasion. 

Request a full portfolio – don’t be taken in by just a handful of photographs from a website. A professional, experienced photographer should have an extensive portfolio showing many different types and styles of work. 

Talk budget – have a clear idea of what you are willing to spend on photography in Puerto Vallarta and remember, that price can often reflect quality.  

What’s your style – talk to your photographer about how you want your Puerto Vallarta wedding or event captured, be it traditional posed portraits or more spontaneous, casual images. 

Personality – During your event, the photographer will interact with your guests and it is important that he or she is professional, serious and focused on capturing and creating amazing images.
