Healthcare in Honduras Meets High Standards and Is Very Affordable

Many Honduran physicians were trained in the United States, so they speak English and keep up-to-date practices. A visit to the doctor costs between US$5 and $15, and a private hospital room costs $30 to $40 a day. You can have complex surgery performed for as little as $1,000.

Expatriates Looking for Healthcare in Honduras

There are good medical facilities in or near the communities where expatriates are likely to settle. The CEMESA facility in San Pedro Sula and the Honduras Medical Center in Tegucigalpa are both top quality medical centers. But outside of these populated areas, medical care is generally only adequate for minor illnesses and injuries.

If you have an ongoing medical condition, it might be worth considering having a health insurance policy that includes a medical evacuation component should you need more sophisticated medical care.
