Medical Facilities Recommended by Consulates


Finding yourself in need of medical attention, whether it’s an emergency or not, can be a bit daunting in another country. While you can easily hit up a local walk-in medical clinic for non-emergency issues or even wander over to a Red Cross station for basic needs, sometimes a hospital is the only answer.

In the event you need a hospital, dentist or specialist, here is a list of the medical facilities for Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Cozumel and Tulum that are English-speaking and recommended by the North American consulates.
