Medical Tourism Congress of Mexico Hosts Event in Puerto Vallarta

The beautiful Mexican coastal city of Puerto Vallarta is hosting the third Health Travel Forum in Mexico, bringing together facilitators, travel agencies, insurance companies, medical financing companies, and specialized medical doctors from Latin America, Mexico, the United States and Canada. The goal of the Global Forum on Medical Tourism, meeting from August 22-24, 2012 in Puerto Vallarta, is to increase knowledge regarding global trends in medical tourism industries.

National and international experts on health topics as well as facilitators understand the business opportunities available throughout Mexico and Latin America, whose medical tourism infrastructure is as successful as those found in India and Thailand.

Is Medical Services in Puerto Vallarta is best?

"Excellent medical services and hospitals match quality offered by prestigious hospitals around the world," states Carlos Arceo Real, President of Foro Global Medical Tourism and the Association of Mexican Medical Tourism. "I want to put Mexico on the world map as one of the leading destinations for medical tourism.”

Mexico already has many Joint Commission International accredited hospitals and nationally certified hospitals adhering to international standards of care. "We offer opportunities for medical services in border cities close to the United States, or in many of our gorgeous tourist destinations, whether you find them in Cancun, our colonial cities, or along our Baja coastline," says Real.
