Puerto Vallarta Gyms and Health Spas

Only two of these gyms/spas/massage/fitness centers in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico noted here are gay-owned (**) that I am aware of: Blue Massage Spa (photo below) and Pump Gym at the luxury gay guesthouse Casa Cupula. Power Fitness Gym, Pump, the San Franciscan and The Fit Club offer gym workout facilities located in the South Side or Old Town area. The Fit Club is probably now the most popular option on this side of town. Several of the facilities also offer pilates and yoga which have become somewhat popular in recent years as people are now more concerned about overall lifestyle, diet and health. Please call the particular person, Vallarta gym, studio, massage therapist, day spa, yoga or workout locale for details because lessons, hours and prices do change from time to time and try as I might I can't keep it all up-to-date. In addition, now many of the Nuevo Vallarta and local hotels and luxury resorts offer their own massage facilities and spa services, so you may wish to contact them as well.
