Why consider Portugal?

For most people, the draw of Portugal is the year round sunshine in the south, especially in the Algarve region. Temperatures average 18°C across the year, with warm dry winters and long hot summers with temperatures rarely dropping below the high twenties.

Miles of pristine white sandy beaches, fascinating ancient sites and delicious seafood cuisine make Portugal the perfect destination for a traditional holiday break. Portugal is convenient for other countries in Europe and is accessible for medical tourists from further afield via sea or air.

Portugal offers a modern, western way of life, with excellent infrastructure and clean, well equipped clinics with highly trained staff. Portugal is also excellent value in terms of living expenses and treatment costs. Even in the major cities, Portugal is one of the most affordable countries in Europe, with dinner from under €15 and local metro rail travel from just €0.85. This great value extends to private medical care, cosmetic dentistry and cosmetic surgery too. Portugal’s private clinics offer a much wider range of services than other healthcare tourism destinations, extending beyond cosmetic procedures to include routine surgery too.

Choose Portugal for your medical tourism and you can tailor your trip to perfection, whether you want to simply relax and soak up the sun, or enjoy a round or two on some of Europe’s finest golf courses. If you have more time and feel like it, you can make a true road trip out of your visit, taking in the idyllic villages or Portugal’s rural interior. Plan the right route and you can enjoy some of the world’s finest wines at Portugal’s many vineyards along the way, as well as visiting the home of port in the Douro Valley.
