We run weekly aquatic rehabilitation sessions for children and adults with disabilities. This form of therapy is so beneficial and over the past year we have seen many positive results in all of the children and adults we work with.
We meet every Thursday at 12.00pm-1.00pm at Hotel Puerto del Luna, Blvd. Francisco Medina Ascencio #2500, Zona Hotelera Nte. Please arrive at 11.45am to allow time for changing. We request a donation of up to 50 pesos per child/adult taking part in the therapy.
We are always looking for volunteers. You do not need to be trained, we will provide all the support and assistance you need. The sessions are great fun and have endless benefits for the children and adults involved.

Catrin’s Centre is run by our Mexican Team; Nadia and Laura (our physios), Oscar and Usiel (our technicians). It focuses on seating for children and adults with specialized postural needs; however, it also caters for children, adults and their families who need advice, education, support and specialist equipment such as crutches, walking frames and occupational therapy equipment. Families can also attend for up to 4 sessions and receive a personal home exercise program and advice for working with their child.
All the equipment we use has been donated from the UK and is checked, repaired if needed and then donated. Once the family has finished with the equipment it can be returned, cleaned and checked and then is ready to re-donate again. Our clinic team also visit local centres, schools and organisations that look after children and adults with disabilities to assist them with postural management. They work directly with staff and parents to provide education as well as run satellite clinics to repair wheelchairs and seating equipment and provide new equipment where needed.
Catrin’s Centre serves the whole of Puerto Vallarta community, providing specialist equipment, advice, support and training. We have seen the effect that the right equipment can have and how much of an impact it has on people’s lives. As with all of our work we are trying to make long lasting differences and this project will change lives forever.
If you have any spare equipment, would like to donate to help us buy new equipment, would like to volunteer to help in the UK or Mexico please get in touch.
