With over forty thousand visitors entering Costa Rica last year for medical tourism, we expect steady growth in the coming years as more people become attracted to seeking treatment in this nation, due to its excellent health system and affordable rates.

myMEDHoliday.com further expands its coverage of top medical tourism destinations around the world, to include Costa Rica to its medical tourism information portal. myMEDHoliday offers the web’s best source for medical tourism information by giving direct access and contact to hospitals, specialist clinics, spas, and medical tourism agencies at the top medical tourism destinations worldwide.
Costa Rica by almost any standard offers medical tourists some of the best health care options in Latin America. The nation’s private and public health systems are being constantly upgraded, with new equipment, new hospitals, and continuous improvements in medical staff training. When compared to the US, health care costs can be up to a third or a fifth of the cost, depending on treatment. With a slow pace of life, high life expectancy, beautiful beaches and dense jungles teeming with exotic wildlife, Costa Rica offers a great holiday destination as well as great value for medical tourists seeking cheaper alternatives abroad.
“We chose to add Costa Rica as a new medical tourism destination to our site because as one of the top three healthcare systems in Latin America, Costa Rica competes for medical tourists with Brazil, Panama, and Mexico. Given its close proximity to the United States, it has an advantage over Asian and South American destinations--especially to Americans as they continue to flock to the country”, says Jidapa Julakasilp, Managing Director at myMEDHoliday. “With over forty thousand visitors entering Costa Rica last year for medical tourism, we expect steady growth in the coming years as more people become attracted to seeking treatment in this nation, due to its excellent health system and affordable rates.”
Included in the Costa Rica section of the site, myMEDHoliday offers information regarding travel information to Costa Rica, visa requirements, Costa Rican healthcare system information and a city guide for its capital, San Jose. There are 20 hospitals, clinics, and rehabilitation centers listed on the site which can be accessed under the Costa Rica section of the site or by clicking this link: http://www.mymedholiday.com/country/costa-rica.
