Medical Tourism

Medical tourism in our country has increased substantially in recent years.

The excellence of the medical services available, including the presence of professionals with the highest international accreditations available, at a low cost versus the high cost and lack of medical and dental insurance abroad, makes Costa Rica a leading destination for medical tourism.

Medical tourists coming to Costa Rica seek both elective procedures as well as more complex specialized surgeries such as: orthopedic, dental, cardiac, plastic, bariatric and ophthalmologic surgery.

The top of the line medical technology offered by our internationally accredited private hospitals permits patients to receive personalized attention at the same level as they would receive in their native countries. Our country has multiple centers that ensure an appropriate recuperation within a relaxing environment surrounded by natural beauty and exotic excursions.

The accessibility, excellent climate, political stability and strong legal system continues to attract more and more medical tourists.
