The rise of dental tourism in Costa Rica

 

When even routine visits to a dentist cost a great deal in your home country, you may avoid going for check-ups. As far as more complex procedures like dentures, implants, cosmetic dentistry and others are concerned, you may put your visit off as far as possible because of the high price of dental care.

 

Considering that dental procedures are usually not covered by insurance, and cosmetic dentistry certainly isn’t, it is no wonder that people are exploring getting good quality dental care at affordable rates in another country. A Medical Tourism Survey reveals that people are lured by the lower prices, the good quality dentists/doctors and the short travel time to go to nearby countries for medical care and have a holiday at the same time.

 

As there may be a gap time required between dental procedures , it is easy to make the most of that time to explore different regions or even the city that you are in to enjoy your trip to the fullest.

 

Holidaying in San Jose, Costa Rica

 

San Jose is a busy city in the heart of the country.

You can also check out the old and historic buildings that have their own character and also go to department stores, shops, markets and restaurants. The city has a large number of gardens, parks and you can see street acts and jugglers in different places.

 

If you are in the mood of adventure activities and visiting areas of natural beauty, then you can take day trips or even go out of town for a few days and visit UNESCO world heritage sites like La Amistad National Park, Cocos Island National Park and Area de Conservacion Guanacaste. The country is known for its green cover and its high biodiversity. You can indulge in all kinds of activities here because of the varied landscape ranging from beaches to mountains, volcanoes to waterfalls, cloud forests to rivers.

Price comparison of different dental procedures
