Medical Care in Puerto Morelos

January 24, 2023

One of the many questions we get when people are making a move (or visiting!) Puerto Morelos is HOW’S THE HEALTHCARE!? And quite frankly- it’s great and MUCH cheaper than what most people are used to back home (ESPECIALLY if you’re from the United States).

Since it’s such a hot topic, we figured we should throw together a little blog post highlighting different medical facilities in Puerto Morelos!



The only hospital in Puerto Morelos is CostaMed which is near the highway in the
Pescadores. They offer emergency and ambulance services 24/7.

Number: 998-500-2505.


Live Medical Center

Located in the Villas La Playa, this is a great option for any minor health issue. It is advertised that English is spoken, but be sure to mention you need an english speaking health care provider when making the appointment, as most likely not all staff speak English.

Number: 998-196-8697

Centro Médico Cubano

Located in Villas 1 this is a good option and one of the most affordable clinics. Very minimal English is spoken in this clinic. Walk-in only, unless seeing a specialist. Doctor visits start at $55 pesos and they have a small pharmacy on site. There is also a dentist and physical therapist working out of the same clinic.

Medica Puerto Morelos

Dr. Victor Ballesteros – Dr. Victor is great and makes house calls as well. He’s also got some other folks working out of his office – a great accupuncturist, a dentist, and he consults with other specialists in the area if necessary. His clinic is in the Pescadores neighborhood – he speaks English, but not all the staff does.
