The number of U.S. citizens flocking to Mexico every year for medical treatment has been steadily increasing and it’s no surprise: Mexico boasts experienced surgeons and state-of-the-art hospitals comparable to American facilities.
As a consequence, Mexico’s convenient location and affordable yet high-quality medical treatment make it one of the most popular destinations for U.S. and Canadian medical tourists. Unlike many American clinics and hospitals, Mexican facilities have virtually no waiting lists, and the cost of prescription and aftercare medicines is far lower than in the U.S.
When it comes to hair transplants, Tijuana is one of the most sought after destinations in Mexico by those who want to regain a lustrous head of hair.
Planning your travel with Junomedical allows you to find world-class clinics at affordable prices and get full support throughout your journey.
Renowned as the most crossed border in the world, Tijuana has more than 1.6 million inhabitants and has grown from a small border town into a large, modern city.
Tijuana’s eccentric nightlife, tasty food, and close vicinity to the U.S. border make it a very desirable destination, however, it’s the high-quality yet affordable medical treatment that serves as the main draw for Americans. The city’s infamous drug-related crime scene has seen a progressive decrease in the last 5 years, leading to a revamp of many urban areas like Zona Rìo, where a vibrant art scene is on the rise, and new fancy cafès and restaurants pop up around every corner.
1. Conveniently located. Tijuana lies immediately south of the border separating Mexico and the U.S. Being just a 20-minute drive away from San Diego and 2 hours from Los Angeles, the city represents a popular tourist destination, especially for day-trippers. If you decide to fly here, Tijuana International Airport is just 6 miles away from the city center.
2. Easy city break. Its proximity to the U.S. border and the ability to enter the country without a visa makes it easy for U.S. citizens to plan a trip to Tijuana. Many patients living just across the border arrange their doctor appointments to coincide with a few days break in Baja, and spend some extra time relaxing on Rosarito beach or enjoying mouthwatering seawood in Ensenada.
3. Foodie paradise. The favorable weather conditions and the many cultural influences of people migrating here during the past decades - Spanish, Italian, and Argentinian, just to name a few - allow cocineros to offer amazing flavor combinations; from tacos to mariscos and handmade tortillas, food lovers are spoilt for choice.
4. Extravagant nightlife. Along the main tourist street, Avenida Revoluciòn, you can find several restaurants and cafès as well as many shops and nightclubs. If you want to go off the beaten path, you can find hip bars and newly-opened breweries around Plaza Fiesta or La Revo.
