A very special and exclusive feature of Costa Rica’s health tourism is the ‘Recovery Resort’. It is difficult to find another location that is as well suited for patient recuperation. The sheer beauty of the country amounts to recuperating in paradise. Recuperate and/ or relax in accommodations designed to look and feel like a boutique resort, however the waiters and waitresses are replaced by nurses and interns delivering hospital care, aiding patients in their recovery. ‘Recovery Resorts’ are normally located close to the treatment hospitals.
