Medical tourism in Costa Rica is flourishing and IHT World now offers this choice.
“The reason Americans prefer medical tourism in Costa Rica is simple”, stated Pam Brammann, President of IHT World. “Costa Rica is only a short airline trip away, plus Costa Rica offers highly accredited hospitals with American quality treatment for around half the cost.”
Mrs. Brammann also commented that another attraction is the fact that Mother Nature generously blessed Costa Rica with naturally beautiful landscape, tropical rain forests, and white sand beaches. "People get to enjoy a scenic, relaxing atmosphere while healing before returning home', says Mrs. Brammann.
Americans also seem to prefer medical tourism in Costa Rica because the price of care is typically half the cost demanded in the United States. Even when you add in the cost of travel for two and medical tourism insurance that offers financial protection in the rare event of complication, Americans still typically save thousands of dollars.
Since medical tourism in Costa Rica has become popular, hotels have sprung up to meet the demand of convalescing patients that have been discharged from the hospital after surgery. Some of the hotels offer medical services such as nurses checking in on patients, and help may be available for patients receiving physical therapy before they return home.
Concerning patients that have no activity restrictions, Costa Rica also offers popular activities such as surfing, fishing, hiking, zip lining and more.
