These patients trust Guatemala Medical Travel to manage their high-quality, low-cost medical attention….
One thing that Guatemala Medical Travel clients have in common is that they are wise consumers. They understand how the United States medical system might not work in their best interest, so they actively research the opportunities that are available to them only a few hours away, in Central America. Successful medical travel patients seek out a consultant, advocate and coordinator with the skills and contacts to assure optimum results and ultimate satisfaction.
Many Guatemala Medical Travel clients are foreigners living in Guatemala, others come from neighboring countries, like Belize and Honduras, but most come from the United States to take advantage of our superior quality medical services and reasonable prices. Hiring a medical advocate and nurse-companion to anticipate preparation of a medical or dental procedure, working hand in hand with the doctors, is the sensible choice for first-time or foreign patients.
During preparation, and on the day of your operation or treatment, a bi-lingual escort from our office will accompany you to the hospital or clinic to oversee transportation, paperwork and payments, and to communicate with your providers most effectively to expedite your treatment and recovery. Your Guatemala Medical Travel agent will listen carefully to directions by the physicians and staff, write detailed notes of the doctor’s instructions, and help you follow them precisely for a quick, successful recovery.
Please consult with your doctor, then with another one. Research your symptoms, options and alternatives with the huge number of on-line resources, and then call Guatemala Medical Travel. Our best patients are aware and informed and ready to take advantage of the health care choices offered in Guatemala.
Paying insurance premiums every month is not a guarantee that the patient will receive the most skilled and effective medical attention, nor that (s)he is immune from suffering astronomical expenses apart from what his insurance company decides to cover.
For those who are self-insured, traveling abroad for health care procedures becomes an affordable and attractive alternative that reduces out-of-pocket expenses. Many people find that high deductibles, co-payments, wait-lists and out-right denials make leaving the country for treatment, and paying cash (self-insured) for the services you require a far more sensible solution.
We need to make the move to being informed consumers, purchasing quality medical services and products at a fair and reasonable price, instead of policyholders asking permission to get a good value from our health care expenses.

The reason we travel to exotic destinations, like the Caribbean rainforest, Pacific fishing villages and historic colonial highlands of Guatemala, is for leisure and rejuvenation. This sort of retreat is exactly the atmosphere we crave surrounding a complicated or invasive medical procedure. Low-impact activities for patients include spa retreats, Spanish classes, escorted shopping trips, Mayan cultural exchange, and tours of Spanish colonial ruins or coffee plantations.
Remember the highlights of past vacations? Was it an airplane ride over magnificent ancient ruins, deep-sea sport fishing, or finding the most romantic and charming restaurant for that extra special occasion? You can do all that in Guatemala and return with more than just photos and memories. This time, arrive at home with a new set of dazzling teeth, a surgically sculpted body shape, or perfect 20/20 vision. Guatemala Medical Travel is the only medical travel company that can make it happen to suit both your budget and time frame.
From your arrival and first consultation to your 100% successful recovery and return home, we prepare, negotiate and confirm every aspect of your medical experience in Guatemala. It’s like having a friend take your hand, introduce you to all the best contacts, and stay by your side throughout every procedure.
The budget for your complete medical package is discussed and agreed in advance of your arrival. There are no added costs or bills, just sensible and fair pricing from start to finish.
