Travel to Mexico
Pangea occasionally offers treatments through global partnership in different parts of the world, but our main location is a sunny fishing village on the West Coast of Mexico, an hour North of Puerto Vallarta. We are surrounded by lush sub-tropical jungle, and minutes walk from a beautiful beach, with a hospital located directly in town.
Securing a passport that will be valid for the duration of your stay in Mexico is mandatory, and many countries offer expedited passport services. If you do not have a passport, this will be the first order of business, along with undergoing the required medical testing.

It may benefit you to purchase travel Medical insurance in case of emergency. Be sure to choose actual travel medical insurance versus just travel insurance offered through an airline which only covers luggage and change fees.
The availability of affordable medical care in Mexico draws many thousands of visitors each year. While we can not recommend any specific specialists or clinics to you aside from our associates at the IIB in Puerto Vallarta, you may want to look into reputable local physicians or dentists to visit while you are here. We are happy to organize treatments around necessary medical procedures.
Safety in Mexico
While Mexico has been struggling with the alarming effects of the drug war, these conflicts are regional, and the problem is generally confined to a few areas.
The Riviera Nayarit, where we currently live and work, has a reputation for being very safe, as does the greater Banderas Bay, and is host to a large number of international tourists, as well as retirees and other expatriates living in Mexico.
While we can not guarantee anything, we have been incident-free in our years of living and working in this area, and find it quite peaceful.
