Foreign patients

This section is dedicated to those patients who are planning to get a plastic surgery done with Dr. Manlio Speziale and who reside outside of La Paz.

Thinking of you, we have gathered all the information that may be useful to plan your trip, making your stay in the city of la paz more comfortable during your recovery.

The city of La Paz, capital of the state of Baja California Sur is immersed in a paradise located between sea and desert. A tourist destination of only 250,000 inhabitants, favorite spot of those who are passionate about ecotourism, marine nature and diving; but also a preferred destination for those who are looking for relaxation, tranquility and rest. It is only a 90 minute drive from los cabos, bcs. One of the top domestic and international tourist destinations in Mexico for luxury vacations, wellness, golf and sport fishing.

The scenic drive from la paz to Los Cabos is wonderful, highlighting the natural beauty of Baja California Sur. The highway has the pacific ocean on one side and the desert on the other. On top of that halfway through, you have a magical town, todos santos. A town that merits a stop to see the iconic “Hotel California”, which was the place where the famous rock band The Eagles found the inspiration to write the iconic song of the same name “Hotel California”. That is why we are very confident it will be an extraordinary 90 minute drive.

First the airport is only 10 minutes from the city.

In case the airport in the city of La Paz does not have a convenient flight, we suggest looking for a flight arriving to the Los Cabos B.C.S airport, which by being a top international tourist destination, has numerous flight routes to different parts of the world. This airport is located only about an hour and a half drive on the scenic 4 lane highway.
