Tourism in Costa Rica 100,000 patients projected

Medical treatment in Costa Rica is of the highest quality yet the price is much lower than in the United States. Because of this an increasing number of patients have been visiting Costa Rica.

In 2009 an estimated 100,000 patients will arrive in Costa Rica for medical tourism. This is an increase of 15% over last year - so despite the economic crisis people in need of operations, medical checkups and other medical services continue to come to Costa Rica.

Not only do patients save money coming to Costa Rica (up to 80% on some procedures) but they usually take time to vacation with their families as well both before and after the procedures.

The growing demand has been met by several world-class hospitals, Hospital & Hotel La Catolica, Clinica Biblica and CIMA all located in San Jose, Costa Rica. New facilities are being built in the Guanacaste province as well.

Many health alternatives are now found in Costa Rica including a number of high quality spas with aftercare options in some cases You can find a large selection of spa and health facilities here http://www.SpasinCostaRica.com
