Dental tourism guide Mexicali, B.C.

(Calexico, Cal.)

Mexicali has grown a lot in recent years, transforming itself into one of the most modern, vibrant and culturally diverse destinations in Baja California; this expansion has also benefited the many talented and experienced medical professionals in the city, who can now offer all of their expertise to every patient at unmatched prices.
Mexicali has an interesting piece of history, it houses one of the only Chinese neighborhoods in Mexico, La Chinesca, it was formed 100 years ago when a large group of Chinese immigrants arrived at the city; nowadays, their traditions have mixed with Mexican Culture, giving you an experience like no other; through the entire town, you will find many symbols of Chinese culture, along with many Chinese food restaurants where you can enjoy delicious and traditional dishes with a Mexican twist.

Nature is one of Mexicali’s biggest strengths, around 60 miles east from the city you will find the Guadalupe Canyon, an expansive and breathtaking oasis, full of climbing, hiking and biking spots, and you can even go swimming in a hot spring, or visit an archeological site and admire ancient cave paintings.

Most places accept US dollars for payment but the exchange rate will be very low, we recommend using a bank or an exchange house so you can get a better deal on the exchange rate.

Safety tips
If you decide to cross the border by foot, you can expect to move around the city safely, but you might see some people trying to get you to visit a lower-quality clinic, we recommend you to stay on course and visit one of our doctors.
