Puerto Vallarta Medical Staff are well trained and professional in all aspects of Health Care.

Emergency numbers can vary between states here in Mexico, so you’ll need to do a little research depending on where you’re going.

Mexico recently adopted a national “911”, but many of those calls go to the police or fire department.  If you are in need of an ambulance to bring you to the hospital, the fastest way to get one is to call a private ambulance service.  You need to tell the ambulance service which hospital you wish to be brought to (this should be part of the research you do prior to arriving).

Also, when you arrive at the hospital, they will ensure you are stable and will immediately process payment, even if you have insurance.  At the very least, you need:

  • Credit card with $3,000 USD available
  • Cell phone and charger
  • Passport and visa
  • Your general practitioner contact info
  • Family contact info
