For those traveling to Puerto Vallarta, rest assured that you will find top-notch medical care in the area. Several private hospitals are available that have multi-specialty physicians, many of whom are bi-lingual. It is very important that you check your insurance policy at home to see if you are covered outside of the United States (remember that Medicare does not cover outside of the US). Better yet, purchase a good traveler's insurance. For a few dollars, should the need arise, you will be covered for all medical services including air ambulance. Helpful Telephone Numbers

One of the fastest growing industries in the world is Medical Tourism. Puerto Vallarta is one of the top locations where people come for everything from plastic surgery to lumbar surgery. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions. e-mail - Pamela Thompson or go to the Web Site
