Regardless of which one you ultimately choose to visit, you’ll experience the same great care and friendly staff. It’s mostly a matter of personal choice, personal preference, and – if you’re looking to combine a vacation with your medical visit in Mexico – where you’d like to go.
You’ve probably heard about the low cost of medical travel to Mexico. News sources like the New York Times and Reuters are featuring stories about medical tourism in Mexico, and profiling the high quality of healthcare available from Mexico hospitals, doctors, and dentists. But despite the increasing numbers of American patients heading south of the border and the number of news outlets covering their experiences, many Americans are confused about how to choose from among the many medical tourism destinations Mexico offers.
Medical Travel in Mexico
The most popular cities for medical tourism in Mexico are generally closer to the U.S.-Mexico border. Originally, most medical travel in Mexico came from men and women driving south from nearby cities to get their general medical and dental care needs met. This led to development of Mexico hospitals in the cities closest to the U.S. Over time, Mexico hospitals developed throughout the major metropolitan cities in the country, providing patients with many different Mexican hospitals to choose from.
Cities Hosting Top Mexico Hospitals
The top cities for medical travel to Mexico are Monterey, Juarez, Guadalajara, Mexico City, Mexicali, and Tijuana. Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, and Mazatlan are becoming more professionally organized regarding medical travel as well. All of these cities have the benefit of being very close to the border and/or are a domestic flight away from most major American cities, making them easily accessible for anyone living in the U.S. regardless of whether they are in a southern state. These cities have all been hotspots for medical tourism in Mexico since the first days of medical travel. As Mexican hospitals have continued to grow, many cities have become known for particular specialties.
For patients who like the hustle and bustle of a large metropolitan city, Angeles Hospital has medical facilities in Tijuana and Mexico City that specialize in dental, vision correction, and bariatric surgery. Other Angeles Hospital facilities throughout the country feature a multitude of options.
