This blog frequently discusses the heavier ends of medical tourism, from patients seeking affordable treatments and surgeries, to those that are pushed out of the United States in response to oppressive medical costs at home. Today I wanted to include a different side of the industry: medical tourism as it extends to leisure and “general wellness.”

Wellness retreats are becoming increasingly popular throughout the world with their focus on holistic healing and well-being of the mind, body and spirit. Setting the standard of excellence for such retreats is Rancho La Puerta, the gorgeous 3,000 acres of gardens, mountains and meadows which sprawl across Tecate, Baja California. Take a look inside this unique experience from Mexico Today and see what Rancho La Puerta’s general manager Roberto Arjona hopes for the future of medical tourism in Mexico.
