  • Hospital

    The closest best hospital is HOSPITEN in Playa Del Carmen. Hospiten is just south of Sam's club. It is about 200 yards past where the highway spits as you are going north on the right of the Highway. They take Credit Cards and have very good doctors on call. This is the best option for any emergencies.

    There are also dentists and eye doctors and eye glass stores in both these cities. However, we recommend you bring and extra pair of glasses or contacts so you don't waste a minute of you vacation. There are stories of people losing or breaking their glasses and having to walk around wearing their prescription goggles.
