Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - We are excited! High season is just around the corner – and we have our October/November/December calendar ready! This has been quite a task – and be aware that there might be some other additions – but at least now, you can take a look at the next three months and plan accordingly.

Save the Date!
On Monday, February 6, 2012, there will be a Medical Matters Expo at the Hotel Marriott in Puerto Vallarta. Up to 50 exhibitors, all health-related along with a wide variety of speakers' programs for the entire day. HealthCare Resources is very proud to be presenting the Medical Matters Expo with the support of, and in conjunction with, Sharp Hospital (San Diego), the US Consular Agency and the Hotel Marriott. This event is free to the public. Last year, we did this in November – and it was a huge success! This year, we expect approximately 1,000 people since it will be held in February.
