Clinicas del Sol - Servimed - Cayo Coco

The Cuban health care system has a very good reputation and is much more advanced than most other countries in Latin America. Cuba operates a special division or clinics and hospitals specifically for the foreigners, with English-speaking doctors and better supplies and equipment. There's one of these clinics in Cayo Coco, the Clinicas Del Sol (part of the Servimed network).

They offer quality treatments, modern facilities with competent and caring staff, and the cost for a consultation or treatment is very low compare to a private clinic in North-America or Europe. This is why in recent years "Medical Tourism" greatly increased in popularity; several thousands of "Health Tourists" travel to Cuba each year.

Although some medicine or equipment are not always available, Cuban doctors are highly qualified and the care and treatments are comparable, and sometimes even better, than the ones received in more developed and wealthier countries.

This international clinic is located at the Hotel Colonial Cayo Coco (formerly Blau Colonial). It contains a medical clinic and a dental clinic, open from 9am to 5pm every day. It's not required to reserve in advance, at least for basic care. Access to Hotel Colonial Cayo Coco is guarded, you just have to tell the guard at th gate that you are going to the clinic. The access is open to everyone, you don,t have to stay at this hotel.
