TIJUANA MEDICAL AND DENTAL TOURISM COMING OF AGE - New 50 Million $ Medical Center Planned - San Diego Union Tribune
TIJUANA — For decades, U.S. patients have crossed to Tijuana for lower-cost medical care, from plastic surgery to dental procedures to stem cell treatments. Developers of a planned high-rise now say they hope to capture a share of that market, offering a wide range of services in one facility, just yards from the San Ysidro border.
The owners of New City Medical Plaza envision a 26-story tower, with doctors offices, a medical lab, a surgery center, and an adjacent 140-room hotel. The idea is to provide a single location easily accessed by U.S. patients. They plan to be up-and-running within three years.

Reposted from Dental Tourism News Today
Many Americans, Canadians and Western Europeans are traveling abroad for non-emergency procedures such as dental makeovers, hip replacement, cosmetic surgery, or even heart surgery. Each year, some 750,000 U.S. citizens travel to foreign destinations seeking medical treatment, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Nearly two-thirds (65 percent) of respondents to a Medical Tourism Association survey who traveled abroad for health reasons did so because they were uninsured. Americans also travel for elective procedures insurance doesn't cover. Cosmetic surgery and dentistry are particularly popular tourism choices, because they are rarely covered by health insurance.
Cost is a big factor in deciding whether to seek care abroad. As a rule of thumb - Procedures that cost more than $6,000 generally are cheaper if performed outside the U.S.

LOS ALGODONES DENTAL CLINIC REVIEWS, LOS ALGODONES DENTAL PRICES & DENTISTS By Certified Dentists Internationale'
Los Algodones just around the corner from Tijuana and San Diego is often called Mexico's Mecca of dental tourism or Molar City, It's located a mere 3 hours from San Diego California and Tijuana via US Hwy 8 or 1 hr. from Mexicali, 10 miles from Yuma.
Every year tens of thousands of American and Canadian dental patients visit the tiny border town of 5,500. 350 dentists occupy the 4-5 block town center - along with discount pharmacies, optometrists and a scattering of restaurants and souvenir shops. The cattle, cantinas and brothels of days of yore were run out of town by a dentist turned mayor decades ago. If you are into selfies you may luck upon the town greeter costumed as a giant smiling molar walking about.

Finding a great Mexican beach escape is easy; finding one with few tourists is more of a challenge. But looking past the most popular beach destinations will yield a bevy of fantastic, beach getaways in Mexico that are still relatively undiscovered by tourists. These locations will give you a slice of laid-back, authentic Mexican lifestyle on white, sandy beaches with beautiful hotels, far from the bustling boardwalks and frenzied marinas of more popular playas.
While Oaxaca is well known for its gorgeous colonial capital city as well as its vibrant culinary scene, the state has some of Mexico’s best and most beautiful beaches, many of them still relatively undiscovered. Surfers have been chasing waves along this beach for years, especially on Playa Zicatela on the south end of the bay; the port town has been ranked among some of the best surf destinations in the world.

Photo: The Cape Hotel located at Km. 5 outside Cabo San Lucas
If your heart and eyes long for a different when you select your hotel stay in Cabo San Lucas - something far from the same old (but truly comfortable) faux Spanish Colonial style hotels, you should take a look at this new post-Odile Cabo luxury hotel - The Cape by Thompson Hotels.
Located at km. 5 just outside of centro Cabo it displays a wonderful panoramic vision of Cabo San Lucas bay and Land's End beyond.The architecture incorporates many sophisticated design trends as the following article will inform. And it's definitely not Mexican hacienda style or even Spanish modern. No glaring white plaster walls, red roof tiles or adobe pots. Just lots of big windows, balconies and huge terraces to enjoy the outside with, which is what you came to this 'desert by the sea' location for afterall.
I'd venture to describe it as 'Desert Industrial' given its clean no-nonsense Bauhaus lines, open spaces and reliance on the darker earth tones found in local plants, rocks, reefs and desert highways. Now I have to leave before the architect of this masterpiece breaks my laptop. Read the following article from Maxim to catch the full flavor. -ed
