Medical tourism in Costa Rica

Medical tourism in Costa Rica is yet another reason to visit this wonderful country. International Living listed the top 10 destinations for medical tourism and of course Costa Rica was on their list.  Many people interested in buying real estate in Costa Rica ask about their medical care. Not only is it good, and much less expensive than in the US, people from all around the world are traveling there just for their medical treatments. Not just opthopedica, cardiovascular surgery and cosmetic surgery – many are traveling to Costa Rica for dental treatments, from crowns to implants. Why not enjoy a pleasant climate and wonderfully hospitable people while saving money on your medical and dental needs?

Costa Rica is much closer than India or Hungary; the beaches and resorts are great places for your recovery; and in Costa Rica medical care puts emphasis on the word “care”. When we toured one of the hospitals we found not only a first class facility, but lots of smiles and a great concern for patients. There are hundreds of board-certified doctors and dentists. Costa Rica is one of the top 5 destinations for Americans looking for medical care outside the US.

Costa Rica health care is attracting visitors from the US and other countries. Visitors are coming not only for cosmetic surgery and dental work, but for knee replacements. The World Health Organization ranks Costa Rica’s health care system one spot ahead of the US. According to a report on Costa Rica by Kevin Brass this week in the  International Property Journal, the US is expected to generate 1.3 million medical tourists next year. Costa Rica is in the top 10 destinations for medical tourism.

The Costa Rican government is encouraging developers to build projects for foreign retirees that would include health care facilities.
