Find a Clinic, Doctor or Hospital in Costa Rica

Health care is a fast growing sector in Costa Rica mainly due to the number of patients arriving from US and Canada, primarily to get medical and surgical procedures in the country.

Apart from the fact that health care is about 50-70% cheaper than in the US there is little to no waiting time for surgery at a clinic or hospital in Costa Rica.
The country is accessible from US and Canada with frequent flights from important cities in both these countries. In addition patients from the US, Canada and Europe do not need a visa if they stay for less than 90 days. They do need a passport that is valid for at least 30 days*. Always check with your health provider directly.

Costa Rica offers top rated private hospitals and private clinics with highly trained medical staff able to speak fluently several languages. Most of the doctors have extensive experience and are well trained in their specialities. Costa Rica is favoured for cosmetic and dental treatments.

Recovery and recuperation at a clinic or hospital in Costa Rica is also highly requested by foreign patients. Enjoy beautiful pristine beaches, lush green mountains, dense rainforests, lakes, and rivers and other natural landscapes during your rehabilitation process. In fact Costa Rica is called “the Switzerland of Central America“.
