An estimated 450,000 people a year visit the Mexican state of Baja California for medical tourism. The numbers were recently stated by Juan Tintos Funcke, the state tourism secretary. Tintos Funcke went on to claim that the medical tourism industry brings in an estimated $89 million U.S. dollars per year to the state.

The state offers a cheaper alternative to many medical procedures in the United States, from dental work to extensive surgeries. Passes are even available, by participating facilities, to shorten the wait at some of California’s port of entries.
