What is cryocavitation?

Cryocavitation is a new technique to fight cellulitis, localized fat and reduce volume based on the effect produced by low-frequency ultrasound applied at low temperature.  The selective destruction of adipose cells turn fat containing triglycerides into liquid substance (diglycerides) which will be discarded through the lymphatic system and urine. 

Before starting a treatment it is advisable to drink at least half a gallon of water, as it acts as ultrasound conductive, and of course you have to stay away of fat-rich food.  Results vary in each case, but in the first session you can appreciate a loss of about an inch of contour, and after the third or fourth session the volume loss becomes more and more evident.

25 to 55 is the age range to obtain the best results, which can be enhanced by combining other techniques such as radiofrequency or mesotherapy and by having a balanced diet and exercising regularly.

As with every treatment, there are contraindications as pregnancy and lactation, pacemakers and other medical or physical conditions, which you must mention to your therapist before your sessions.

So on Friday 12 in a simple and emotive ceremony the sponsors delivered their presents to each child they decided to support.  Amidst laughing, hugs and tears of joy the little ones received their

A New Mexican Actor in Puerto Vallarta

Puerto Vallarta has become a gastronomic tourism scenario by excellence thanks to its offer of eateries spanning from street vendors and little fondas all the way to large, elegant gourmet restaurants.

New actors are constantly appearing on stage to compete for the generous market locals and visitors comprise.  The routes these competitors take are as ample as the likes of the foodies they cater to, with more or less success according to a series of variables that must be taken into account.

The recently-open Casa Tradicional Cocina Mexicana is one of those new actors coming with great impetus into this winter season.  Its unsurpassable location – one block away fro the Guadalupe church downtown – takes care of one of the variables mentioned above.  The experience of its owners, who have been integral part of successful projects before, takes care of another one.  This experience is reflected in the menu, featuring classic Mexican specialties to amaze the patrons thanks to the delightful combination of textures, aromas and flavors.

This is your chance to know Casa Tradicional Cocina Mexicana with CupoCity’s promotion. Come fall in love with this new actor in Vallarta!

The newest chic zone in Puerto Vallarta

The urban development Fraccionamiento Fluvial Vallarta has for the last decade become an important real estate and commercial factor of growth for Puerto Vallarta, especially in its confluence with Francisco Medina Ascencio Boulevard, the main access way to our town.

Grandes Lagos Avenue crosses Fluvial Vallarta connecting the  north area of town with Medina Ascencio Boulevard.  The area of the corner these two important routes make has been going through an impressive transformation during this 2014.  Such transformation started with the construction of a restaurant and night clubs complex which have become fashionable for both locals and visitors alike; Villa del Palmar Hotel, one of the first time-share developments in town, is also remodeling its facade, and the land lots adjacent to Puerto de Luna Hotel  - which for a while seemed to be used only for circuses and carnivals – have been put to good use in several independent cultural and commercial activities, small-mounted by with a high sense of community belonging.

Outdoor movie shows and the installation of El Vecindario are but a sample of these activities.  Also within Puerto de Luna Hotel premises you can find Iyari Restaurant, the newest addition to Vallarta’s gastronomic landscape, created by Chef Ramiro López.

So now you know, visit www.cupocity.com now and find our promotions to visit the new chic zone in Puerto Vallarta.

The Day of the Dead and the Calaveritas

More than 500 years ago, when the Spanish Conquistadors landed in what is now Mexico, they encountered natives practicing a ritual that seemed to mock death, one they had  been practicing at least 3,000 years known today as Día de Muertos or Day of the Dead. 

Unlike the Spaniards, who viewed death as the end of life, the natives viewed it as the continuation of life. Instead of fearing death, they embraced it.  To make the ritual more Christian, the Spaniards moved it so it coincided with All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day (Nov. 1 and 2), which is when it is celebrated today.

In Mexico, people visit the cemetery where their loved ones are buried. They decorate gravesites with marigold flowers and candles. They bring toys for dead children and bottles of tequila to adults. They sit on picnic blankets next to gravesites and eat the favorite food of their loved ones.

They believe that the gates of heaven are opened at midnight on October 31, and the spirits of all deceased children (angelitos) are allowed to reunite with their families for 24 hours. On November 2, the spirits of the adults come down to enjoy the festivities that are prepared for them.

In CupoCity we joined the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead with our CupoCalaveritas Contests.  Calaveritas are mock poetic compositions which entered the celebration by late 1800’s and early 1900’s.  Along today all the calaveritas sent will be uploaded.  The winner will be announced on November 5.
