The closest medical service is just a three-minute drive away. There is always an experienced doctor at the centre and they have a hyperbaric chamber for divers as well as a laboratory to evaluate basic examinations. The local doctors also make home calls to our hotel.
Where to find the best medical care?
Roatan is a safe tourist destination. But should you run into some unexpected health issues we are ready to help and can recommend an experienced doctor or clinic.
In the case of a more serious issue or if you need further examinations, we recommend the newly opened clinic Cemesa. We have used the clinic several times and warmly recommend it based our our personal experience. All the doctors are very thorough and the staff is very helpful and empathetic. The clinic has modern operating theatres, laboratories, a ward for inpatients, computed tomography, and radiology. A paediatrician is always called in to attend to children. The provided care and equipment is on par with the services in the EU.
The clinic cooperates with most travel insurance companies. However, we recommend that you double-check with your insurance company.
Most doctors on the island speak good English.
