Mexico is known for its ancient Mayan ruins and gorgeous beaches, but it also has mountain resorts and big cities that offer all the attractions of modern, urban life.
Top destinations for medical tourist on the coast, with those sunny beaches just out the hospital window, include Puerto Vallarta, Cancun, San Luis Potosi, and Mazatlan. In the Baja area there are vineyards and breweries to tour, historic missions and, of course miles and miles of beaches, coves, and bays. Local markets offer a variety of handicrafts and artisans and the seafood is legendary.
Those wanting to stay close to the US border can check out Mexicali, Reynosa, Ensenda, Nuevo Laredo, Cuidad Juarez, Tecate, and, of course, Tijuana. Every border town has its own character and attractions, with modern medical facilities as well as luxurious hotels, spas, and resorts.
An urban resort experience can be found in interior cities like Guadalajara, Monterrey, and Mexico City. As the capital of the country, Mexico City is filled with a mixture of ancient and historic sites such as the Museum of the Templo Mayor as well as modern architecture, dining and nightlife.
When seeking medical treatment in any foreign country it is important to do thorough research ahead of time. Make sure that the facility is accredited and check the training and credentials of individual doctors and medical professionals. In Mexico this will be easier than in many other foreign countries as most hospitals have English-speaking staffs and many doctors offer Skype consultations to answer all questions about procedures and treatment ahead of time as well as to provide follow up consultations.
