Hello Andy. This is Sal from Xela. Have you ever thought of organizing trips for Americans to come to Guatemala to avail themselves of GOOD medical and dental care at Guatemalan prices? Take care y adios.------Sal53 from Xela.
Hello Sal, I am doing what I am calling a live abroad seminar, where people pay 500 dollars, I meet them at airport, etc. and they can live in Guatemala as long as they wish on Lake Atitlan, I hope, but they can live where they want. And, I should add medical and dentist to that list, funny, my mother already has dentist on her list, but I did not add it to my list of benefits of the tour, (Not, tour is not the proper diction, trying to find a better word, but really helps people understand.) Where do you thinks s the Medical, the Hospital in San Pedro? I went there a couple of years ago, and they removed a big polyp like fat ball from my back for 40 USD, with the assistance of an American nurse. Running them to Xela is going to be more complicated, but possible according to their health.
HI Andy. There are not as many medical facilities up at the Lake as there are in Xela, but there are some. I want to come to Pana and meet you when you arrive in late January, 2015. Perhaps then we can speak further about this. I have spoken with Dr. Barrios here in Xela. He is a Guatemalteco ,USA- trained dentist who speaks English well. Dr. Barrios knows many doctors here in Xela. I could run the folks Pana-Xela with either one of 2 decent shuttle companies I know. I know some decent hotels about a 10-15 minute walk from Parque Central. Not pricey and plush like the Bonifax or a scruffy hippie place like Casa Argentina, but decent for about 100 Quetzales a night, cheaper for a weekly stay. I will do some research. However, it will be better to talk face-to-face in Pana. Take care, Andy. Que Dios te bendiga.-----SAL
Hello Sal, this is a better page to post this stuff, it is the tour page.
I am not a millionaire, but I often wonder, would Europe be fun on 1000 dollars per day? In the end, I do like living in Hostels, there are tons of people to talk too, and I could get private rooms. But, they often have these really childish rules about visitors. Yet, can I pay enough money? I mean, often Hostels are on Tourist pedestrian walk ways, they have 3-4 flights of stairs, there is nobody to carry luggage, they do nothing. And, living in Hostels is lonely, nice big rooms, TV, but the only accidental meeting of people is in the bar, or restaurants. This is the same as the USA, I can hang out in a Starbucks. Truthfully, living in a Hostel is fun in Europe, but never a private moment. All in all, the Taxis of Europe suck, you need to call them to come pick you up. I like the 200 cheap countries, where they are just roaming the city, you hold up your hand and flag them down. I see this on movies about New York, do they still do that?
I am publishing a video soon of Medical in Guatemala.
Hi Andy. Looking forward to seeing the Medical Video.---Sal53 in Xela.
