Health Info About Mexico
Is the Zika Virus In Our Area of Mexico?
Because we're located in a desert with virtually no mosquitos, the Zika Virus is not a threat in our area of Mexico.
In our area, we have several hospitals that can help with medical care. One is a state run hospital and doesn't charge for medical care. It provides care for minor surgeries and would be the first choice for broken bones, sicknesses, and general care. Another option is a government hospital that offers a little more care than the first, but charges for its services. We also have a Christian-run hospital that offers the best healthcare in our local area and would be a good choice for more complicated surgeries, etc. It does charge, however, but would be about a twentieth of what the same care would cost in America.
We also have many local health clinics where minor injuries can be addressed.
We have private practices as well that are available.

San Diego Medical Care
San Diego is located about four hours north of us where many hospitals are available for major issues.
While we do not endorse any health insurance company, here are some organizations who have contacted us and offer health insurance coverage for short-term mission trips to Mexico.
We should mention that in regards to medical attention in the Valley of San Quintín, we do have several hospitals. In the event that you feel that medical health insurance is important for your group, below is some possible help.
