The best healthcare in Ecuador is located in the major cities of Quito, Guayaquil, Cuenca and Manta. You’ll find top-notch doctors and hospitals in these cities, with state-of-the-art equipment and current techniques.
Many doctors speak English, and they often have nurses or other administrative staff who speak English. Your insurance broker can also help you make appointments with English-speaker healthcare professionals throughout Ecuador.
We had very positive experiences with healthcare providers in Cuenca. Since the pandemic began, we’ve done our best to avoid hospitals and doctor’s offices so we don’t have experience with healthcare outside of Cuenca.
We’ve been told by several expats that the healthcare in Cuenca is more affordable than other parts of Ecuador so lots of people travel there for medical procedures.
Both medical and dental tourism is becoming very popular in Ecuador due to the high quality and low cost of healthcare.
