In our last blog post we talked about the importance of not only taking care of our bodies, but also about taking care of our smiles. We mentioned that becase of the low prices and popularity, a lot of men and women are booking visits across the border with dentists in Tijuana. We got very got comments about this, and we found out that a lot of you already knew about this dental tourism thing, and are taking advantage of it. We heard from a guy in Florida who paid for a couple of round trip airplane tickets, hotel stay and other normal traveling expenses, and still managed to save a lot of money by going to abroad to get dental implants in Mexico. I know, it sounds crazy, but it’s true!
Many other patients are also traveling to Mexico because they have a several well trained Tijuana biological dentists, and as you probably know, in the United States anything that is labeled as organic, biological or holistic is super expensive.
So, by the looks of it, many of you are going to Tijuana Mexico not just for the clubs and the parties, but also for health reasons. Good! Because of that, let me give you some tips on what to do to keep your fitness in check when you are traveling to Mexico, or any other place for that matter.
As soon as you get settled in your hotel, plan your fitness activities for the days you will be staying over. If you are a runner, ask at the front desk if there are any parks near by that are both safe and conditioned for running. If you are a gym goer, you may have it a little easier. Most hotels have gyms, but, let’s be honest, most of them leave much to be desired, specially of you are used to a well equipped gym back home. Your best choice is to pull out Google Maps and look for fitness centers near your hotel (or at least a short uber drive away). Look at the photos and call to see if the offer day passes. Usually you can expect to pay as low as $3 for a day pass at most regular gyms.
Of course, always check with your dentist first to see if he is ok with you working out, specially if you are getting delicate treatments like dental implants in Mexico. In those cases, you may need to skip your fitness workout during your travel. Fitness is crucial, but your overall health is much more important.
