Travel tips for seniors visiting Puerto Vallarta

We have a lot of seniors traveling to Puerto Vallarta to experience the sights and culture of this beautiful place. These vacation can be very enjoyable, but planning what to do and when to do it before leaving for any destination is a basic move you have to make. Here are some travel tips for seniors that can keep stress to the lowest and travel experiences to the maximum.


Many travel agencies offer discounts to seniors. An added benefit to booking with a travel agent specializing to seniors is being able to choose accommodations that are age-specific friendly. This means the itinerary will include accommodations that allow the older traveler time to rest between sightseeing adventures. There are many tourist vacation tours and activities that are also available for mobility-impaired travelers. The company providing your tours and activities should be able to recommend you senior with wheelchair-accessible facilities or other special arrangements.

Give yourself plenty of time to enjoy what you came to see. Do not rush to take in all the sights at once. Plan to do sightseeing in stages. The itinerary should include frequent stops for casual relaxation. When taking in the sights of down town Puerto Vallarta, for example, take time to enjoy the sidewalk stores or other specialty restaurants in the area. Thirty-minute breaks can give the weary traveler time to rest, relax and take in the culture.

Special Considerations

Medications are necessary for some seniors. Either take enough for the trip or make sure a pharmacy is available to refill any prescriptions needed while traveling. Some medications may not be taken into all countries. This should be checked prior to leaving on any vacation. Also remember that some types of medicine may not be available in Mexico should you run out while traveling.

There are medical supply companies which will deliver wheelchairs and other equipment for special needs travelers to certain hotels around town. Many airlines and cruise ships offer special accommodations for the less mobile senior. Do not be afraid to ask for any special equipment you may need while traveling.

Other things to take in consideration

– Always take an extra pair of glasses when traveling should you lose the first pair.

– Always keep a letter from your doctor on hand that lists any medical conditions and the medications necessary for treatment.

– Keep medications in the original containers when traveling.
