Puerto Vallarta

We are so excited that you are exploring the possibility of traveling to Puerto Vallarta. At Globalcare we put together this one pager to prepare you for your visit!

Getting there

Puerto Vallarta is easily accessible from both the U.S. and Canada, making it a convenient destination for travelers seeking top-quality dental care in a stunning locale.

Puerto Vallarta International Airport welcomes flights from across North America, including direct flights from major U.S. cities such as Los Angeles, Denver, Seattle, and Chicago. Canadian travelers can also find direct flights from cities like Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, and Montreal.

If a direct flight from your area isn't available, numerous connecting flights frequently route through these major hubs, ensuring that reaching Puerto Vallarta is straightforward and stress-free.

This connectivity makes traveling to Puerto Vallarta a breeze, allowing you to focus more on the exciting prospect of enhancing your smile and less on the logistics of your journey.

Whether flying directly or connecting, you'll land in a vibrant city ready to greet you with open arms and exceptional dental services.

Arrival into the city

Puerto Vallarta is renowned for its welcoming atmosphere. It is especially popular among American tourists because of its mix of traditional charm and modern amenities. As you arrive, you'll feel the warm hospitality that makes visitors feel at home.

Upon your arrival at Puerto Vallarta International Airport, you will go through immigration. The officials here are accustomed to international visitors, and many are fluent in English, making it easy to communicate should you need to discuss your dental treatment visit.

Once you've passed through immigration, if you have checked your luggage, you will collect it before proceeding to customs. At customs, you'll fill out a straightforward form and proceed through the typical semaphore system used throughout Mexico, pressing a button: red for a detailed check or green to continue to the exit.

If you've arranged for our transportation services, your driver will wait for you outside customs to take you to your hotel. If you haven't pre-arranged transportation, taxis and ride-share services are readily available at the airport. They provide a reliable and convenient way to get to your accommodation, setting the stage for a comfortable and stress-free visit.


Globalcare has partnered with select hotel chains and specific locations to ensure that your accommodations meet your expectations. Regardless of your choice, please ensure everything in your room functions appropriately upon arrival. You can review all our partners here.
