I can't speak from experience here in regards to Guatemala health care aside from dentistry, where they have a thriving dental industry some of which caters to tourists. But I have seen in Guatemala city that there are a range of private services operating, and the most impressive to me has been BlueMedical. They have a medical center at the very trendy little area in zona 4 called the Quo.

This area is also home to about 10 major towers, mixed residencial and commercial, La Torre (food store) and Smart Fit gym are there and several buildings all face each other with a lovely courtyard in the middle, many restaurants and an open air restaurant. I think the area is worth a visit if spending some time in Guate.

BlueMedical operates ambulances and I believe they have both medical clinics and hospitals here. I'm not sure of the costs, they might be relatively expensive... but all of their facilities and ambulances in particular seem very modern. I see other ambulances that sometimes look like they from a different era, and then BlueMedical with this fleet of brand new vehicles.

Their site is https://mibluemedical.com/blue-medical-para-tu-familia/

I'm a digital nomad from Canada. My first few years traveling were spent in Europe, first Spain, then Romania, Bulgaria. Since 2019 I've lived in various countries in Latin America, currently residing in Guatemala.

I am a 55 year old American citizen who is married to a Guatemalan citizen. I plan to retire in Guatemala in 5 to 8 years or so. My wife has a home there that I helped purchase.
