Medical Tourism – Why Choose Costa Rica?

Costa Rica has long been considered a country surrounded by exotic vegetation and for many it will always be remembered as a jungle. For some, it is a surprise that medical tourism has encountered such a huge growth during the last 15 years. And this growth is very well founded.

When the World Health Organization (WHO) ranked the world’s health systems in the year 2000, Costa Rica was ranked as no. 36, which was higher than the U.S., and together with Dominica it dominated the list amongst the Central American countries.

Costa Rica offers these levels of care ranging from Intermediate Life Saving capabilities, Complex Life Saving Treatment Capabilities, Advanced Life Savings Treatment Capabilities, and Life Style Treatment Services (Full range of dental work and cosmetic surgery).

Because of Costa Rica´s privileged geography and stable politics, it has reported having attracted over 48,000 patients per year. According to the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions, in their 2009 report “Medical Tourism Consumers in Search of Value”, the average savings are between 30-70% of US prices.

Costa Rica is easily accessible by plane, with plenty of choices, schedule options with a wide range of prices and even promotions. Staying in Costa Rica is a pleasure; there are hotels for every taste, need and budget. In terms of language, English has become one of the most important requirements for any respectable position in the country. Banking facilities abound, as well as grocery stores, specialty shops and everything you need is practically at the tip of your fingers.

However, one of the most important concerns for someone who is still deciding whether or not to come to Costa Rica to have the procedures that have an unspeakable price tag in their native country, the most important point to ponder is the professionalism of doctors.
