How long have you been coming to PV?

First time was 1992

When and why did you join the IFC?

I've learned that friendship is one of the most valuable possessions you can have - especially when you are a little older and particularly when you live outside your home country.

Are you still working? If so what do you do?

www.PV-Health.com helps expatriates and world travelers choose international health insurance and medevac (air ambulance) services.
Everybody needs and deserves affordable protection designed to protect you internationally and everybody can have it!

If you could do it all over again what would you do differently?

I'd do it all the same so I'd still find myself living in Puerto Vallarta.

The annual migration of snowbirds leaving Puerto Vallarta for the summer has begun. And many expats (we who call Puerto Vallarta home) are also packing and planning our escape as well. Some feel the need to touch base with family and friends up north while others are leaving to avoid the heat and humidity.

So, what will you do this summer? Where are you going to go? What will you see? What life-informing, if not life-changing, experiences will you seek?

International travel is chock-full of unexpected delicious moments – even the moments that don’t seem delicious as we are living them! Savvy travelers expect the unexpected and are not surprised when things are not exactly as anticipated. The fact is that when it comes to keeping the mind sharp, nothing compares with international travel!

Living the expat lifestyle has inoculated us against thinking that nothing bad will happen to us so we take these reasonable precautions:
1.   We get health insurance that will cover us anywhere in the word for about $5.00/day.
2.   We get trip cancellation insurance – for less than 5% of the non-refundable costs of our travel.
3.   For less than $1.00/day, we carry emergency medical evacuation protection that will safely fly us home if we end up hospitalized somewhere we don’t want to be.
4.   We carry an international In Case of Emergency card everywhere we go!
Stuff happens, but we don’t let that keep us from going and growing! We love to explore too much to let a few bumps and bruises keep us stuck anywhere!

Getting a no cost/no obligation custom proposal for international health insurance, including trip cancellation and emergency medical evacuation, is as easy as sending an email to MikeAltman@PV-Health.com with the names, ages, nationality and travel dates of everyone you want to enjoy peace of mind while traveling. Now would be a good time to get your proposal!
