Some Americans get their #prescriptions in Mexican #pharmacies. These medical tourists go to #save money. Plus they enjoy the different culture. Some return at least twice a year to replenish prescriptions. Each trip, they save several hundred dollars. Some like it so much, they stay–they become gringo #expats.
Medical Tourists Go to Mexico to Save, Stay For Love: most towns
What’s to like besides prices and adventure? Lots.
Sidewalk vendors offer grilled corn on the cob and more. Shops and markets sell:
– colorful Mexican pottery,
– household goods,
– toys and more.
The pure #vanilla extract for baking adds more flavor. Compare it to what US supermarkets sell.
The restaurant food is flavorful, plentiful, and fresh. And comes in every cuisine. Outdoor cafes and plaza provide great people watching.
Walking the streets, visitors never feel uncomfortable. Residents are friendly and helpful. English is widely spoken and understood. People are used to foreigners. They barely take notice of gringos.
In a small town, most streets have few cars and at least a few bikes. Strung above some streets are small multicolored triangle flags. Now and then, musicians perform for pedestrians.
Medical Tourists Go to Mexico to Save, Stay For Love: Ajijic
Some never leave the artist colony of #Ajijic on Lake Chapala (Mexico’s largest). They rent or buy a home. They adopt a new routine. In the morning, a bakery for a homemade pastry and cappuccino. Then an open-air market, with great mounds of tomatoes, onions, cilantro, potatoes, avocados, and more.
Social life can be filled every night of the week with a dinner party. Golfers have several courses to choose from. One can join a club, hire a gardener, have a maid, and still have pesos leftover.
Whether going or staying, North Americans can save a bundle on medical and dental treatment. Plus enjoy the best doctors and dentists anywhere. While airfares are low, consider coming. Contact DocTours to arrange you appointments and all else.
