Cancun hospital/emergency care

Recommended Posts

Has anyone has any experiences with hospital or emergency care in Cancun?

One of my guests is asking since she has had some issues over the past year.

 

It won't stop her from traveling, but she just wants to be aware of the care in the area just in case.

 

(Knock-on-wood she does not need it!)

I've read a lot of reviews where people have had to go to the hospitals in Riviera Maya (not sure if they transport them to Cancun or if there is one down south furtherhuh.gif) But they all say that the care is actually better than the US. Yup, you pay A LOT if you don't have insurance, but they almost all said that you don't even wait in the waiting room like you would here in the US. Most people were to the hospital and back in a few short hours.

My FI and our fams were there in November... the riviera maya... we were in a car accident and my bro had to go to the hospital...

They did x-rays... that's about it... but he and my mom said it was basically someones garage... But, this was not the main hospital... which is rumered to be really nice. The only problem is that they will not let you leave until you pay your bill... fully!

There is a private hospital called Hospiten (http://www.playamayanews.com/health/...el_carmen.html) with locations in both Cancun and Playa del Carmen. They have a very good reputation. Many people also go to the local Hyperbaric Chamber (medical care for diving accidents) for minor injuries. My friend went there for a broken wrist and received good, affordable care.

I am agree with Paul. Hospiten is the best one here in the Riviera. In Cancun there is also one and much more!

Some hotels have a concesion with the Hospiten Hospital and their medical services on site are from there.

You should not worry about getting sick during your stay but just make sure to have an insurance, otherwise it could be very expensive!

Good luck!

Gracias Yazmin & Paul.
What is the name of the one you are referring to in Cancun?
We will be staying at Dreams.
I want to be able to give my friend piece of mind about actual hospital care if something serious were to happen.
