Question – Can I drive down to Tijuana, Mexico for my bariatric surgery?

Yes, we have clients who drive from Arizona and California to Tijuana, Mexico for bariatric surgery.

Most of them park in the San Diego airport parking area and are picked by the company driver who drops them to the hotel in Tijuana.

American citizens should have a valid passport upon entering Mexico. One needs a tourist visa in case the stay is for more than 180 days.
