2. If I am not comfortable driving in Mexico are there any other options?

YES, there are two other options.

  1. Drive to the border on Interstate 5 South until you come to the last USA exit which is Camino de la Plaza. Take this exit and continue straight into the Paid Parking Lot ($9.00 per day). Park in this lot and follow the signs that lead you into Mexico by walking. Immediately after crossing the border you will see the YELLOW TAXI station. Please call the clinic 1-888-544-5993 to provide you with the exact address in Mexico. The approximate cost should be $10.00 each way.
  2. Another option is to call the clinic 1-888-544-5993 and arrange for our driver to pick you up on the US side of the border. At that time, a designated meeting place will be arranged. Our driver will take you to our facility and then return you to the border after your stay.  Our patient coordinator will help you facilitate the process.

3. What are the costs for treatment at the Hope4Cancer Institute?

Costs vary upon diagnosis and the treatment plan designed for you. Prior to your arrival to Hope4Cancer Institute, our Admissions Team representative will discuss your treatment plan with you along with the associated costs and room availability. Following that discussion, you will receive a contract outlining your treatments and costs.  Please feel free to ask our representatives any questions at this stage.  Once the contract is signed, you will be cleared to travel to the clinic.
