Medical tourism is on the rise. Many people from industrialized countries, where the cost of health care is almost prohibitive, are opting to visit other countries for medical attention. These nations offer excellent medical services, at a fraction of the cost. More and more, the Republic of Panama is the country that “medical tourists” are choosing to visit.
Many of doctors in Panama not only speak English, but were trained in the United States or European countries. Panama’s doctors are very experienced and hospitals and clinics here follow American standards when it comes to medical procedures. In fact, the Punta Pacífica Hospital located in Panama City–is affiliated with the world-renowned John Hopkins Medicine International and has state-of-the-art medical equipment and facilities. At the same time, the cost of medical care in Panama is very affordable.
Receiving world-class medical services while enjoying vacation in a luxury setting is affordable in Panama. You will find a wide range of health services and experienced specialist physicians in all areas and specialties, such as dental implants, cosmetic or plastic surgery, assisted reproduction, cardiology, cosmetic dentistry, orthopedics, and many, many more. You can even have an "extreme makeover" done and return home not only feeling great but looking like a new person. After your surgery or procedure, you can recuperate in beautiful hotel-spas on the beach, in the rainforest, or in the mountains. You can have everything arranged for you in advance.
Panama, at its best, is a beautiful cultural blend of the “old Spain”, the “modern America” and curiously the “bazaar effect” of the east. As a major commercial point, Panama is strategically placed as a crossing point between the Pacific and the Atlantic. Panama offers eco-tourism, adventure and health tourism and is also home to one of the friendliest people you will ever meet.
Panama has something for everyone. This is a land of carnivals and bird watching to adventure sports and exciting night life. There are very few contenders to the quality of Panama’s tourist attractions. Accessible rain forests are filled with flora and fauna unique to this region. Panama boasts beautiful mountain sides and contains some of the most interesting culturally rich historical sites in the world. Panama is all that it promises and much more.
Panama is a very safe place to travel. It has the highest rating of tourist safety from the prestigious Pinkerton Intelligence Agency. As well, Panama is close to the US and is just a short plane-ride away. Eight major US cities offer direct daily flights to Panama City: Los Angeles, New York, Newark, Miami, Houston, Dallas, Atlanta and Orlando.
Panama has a first-world infrastructure including a US style capital city with high speed Internet, the second largest Free Trade Zone in the world, a banking sector with 100 banks, first rate hotels, restaurants and shopping almost on par with the United States or European countries.
