HEALTH AND WELLNESS »
The Spanish healthcare system is widely envied across Europe, and for good reason.
Hospitals, clinics and surgeries throughout the country are uniformly excellent, delivering modern facilities, low waiting times and exceptional service, consultations, referrals and treatments.
In addition, the general culture of healthcare is extremely progressive throughout Spain. The Mediterranean diet plays its part, but the fact that Spaniards live on average much longer than most other Europeans is down to a caring attitude towards its citizens.
Doctors are thorough, not dismissive; nurses are patient, not hurried; and the people are usually responsible and inclined to healthy living.
The area of Estepona and Marbella is a specially leading destination for health and wellness tourism: spas, massages, saunas, hotels to rest and unwind health and beauty clinics.
Its privileged climate and its deep-rooted wellness culture, make of Costa del Sol an idyllic setting for rest, recovery or relaxation.
