Travel to MX from outside of North America



Recommended Posts

Has anyone here traveled to Tijuana from outside of North America? I am and American currently living in Lima, Peru and am considering self-pay gastric sleeve in Mexico. Aside from the cost (MUCH cheaper to fly in to Tijuana than San Diego), the flight durations / layovers seem like a nightmare. It's about 6.5 hours to Mexico City then 3 or so more to Tijuana which isn't so bad by itself but the layovers are crazy - up to 24hrs+.

I am also concerned about aftercare here in a developing country in the case of an emergency.

If anyone has any advice or words of wisdom I'd love to hear them!

Thanks!

I'm sure it is more than doable. And having lived in Peru you will be fluent,enough in Spanish to know if anyone says anything out of line, not that I think they would.
But go for it, of course I would think BariatricPalMx is bestt, they seem to deliver a quality product and their doctors won't release you premature back into the world. If I hadn't had insurance that is where I would have gone!😛
