Seeking the help of a medical tourism facilitator also helps, given the fact that they have the right statistics, comprehensive information and a professional way of doing things. Coming back to the main focus area, medical tourism has many takers from every corner of the world. The West works on an institutionalized way of medical system that just doesn’t go down well with a rather large middle-class society, be it in America, England, Canada or other European nations.

And, given the lack of basic medical facilities and infrastructure in African and the Middle Eastern countries, one can clearly see how haute property medical tourism is. But, one asks, why not? Affordable world-class medical services, quality care and excellent post-treatment services, who isn’t entitled to all this? It is a win-win situation for both the parties. To be able to access quality care is every human being’s prerogative and to be able to do so in a financial manner that fits into your pocket comes foremost.

The Western medical system is such that many feel it’s of no use to them, especially the middle-class. Meeting up with experts or opting to go for a particular cosmetic surgery may take up to several months to a year, even more, which obviously, isn’t a very agreeable situation. And then, to add to the mounting frustrations, it is the insurance policies that play a spoilt sport. When your policy doesn’t cover you for a particular procedure, you are as good or as bad as the uninsured person. Last, but in no way the least, affordability becomes a big question mark in the face of exorbitant medical treatments and services.

Compared to all these, doesn’t it sound simpler to just board a cheap flight to a medical tourism destination and get your preferred treatment under all the privacy and for the fraction of the cost that it commands in your home land? This way you not only get to access the best of doctors, the best of medical practices and the best of hospitals for a figure that suits you, but also enjoy a small vacation on the side. Hospitals in the medical tourism hubs have been giving a stiff competition to those in the the other hand, would you mind getting yourself medically treated in a foreign locale for half the price that the hospitals and procedures in your own country demand? We all know what the answer to that question is.

Adventure Travel Holidays in Spain’s Pueblos Blancos

Adventure Travel Holidays in Spain’s Pueblos Blancos

Inland from Spain’s heavily developed southwestern coastal strip, the Pueblos Blancos sit loftily on Andaluc?�a’s hillsides. These charming “White Villages” acquire their name from their pristinely whitewashed buildings, resplendent and sparkling brightly against the dazzling sun. Perched high on the hills between the coast on the west and the Ronda Mountains on the east, these towns offer an escape into natural surroundings, a glimpse into traditional Spanish life and lots of active adventure. Settled by Berbers during the eight centuries of Moorish rule, these villages, which were under the constant threat of attack were easily defensible and served as the border between Moors and Christians.

Towards Arcos de la Frontera

Winding slowly east into the mountains, high peaks, jagged crags, gorges, chasms and caves, and an occasional goat grazing on the hillsides take the place of beaches and crowds, with breathtaking views at every bend. Heading inland, Arcos de La Frontera, one of the prettiest towns in Spain, comes into view. Situated near the Guadalate River, high above a precipitous gorge, the town was an important Moorish stronghold and boasts spectacular vistas of olive groves, vineyards and bull and horse farms. Possessing an old-world charm, this lovely village is packed with history.

The National Parks in the Region

Picturesque Zahara de la Sierra, a typical fortified White Village, straddles a hilltop overlooking the wide, blue waters of the Embalse de Zahara, a man-made reservoir more like a natural lake. The town lays claim to a Moorish castle sitting high above on a rocky crest, which overlooks a lovely baroque church. From Zahara de la Sierra, a narrow mountain road winds and twists its way up to Grazalema, an idyllically beautiful, well-kept small town. Renowned for its many bubbling fountains, Grazalema has a wetter climate than its neighbors, its reward being its setting in the heart of the verdant Parque Natural Sierra de Grazalema. To the south and west of the Grazalema National Park, the National Park of Los Alcornocales, one of the world’s largest cork oak forests, forms the backdrop of an area of outstanding beauty and is home to rare species of Andalucian wildlife including mountain goats, red deer and wild boar.

Ronda’s Dramatic Setting

Snaking a way up past panoramic views of silvery green olive groves en route to Ronda, the small charming towns of Montijaque and Benaojan boast ancient caves with great Paleolithic cave drawings. Ronda, the largest of the Pueblos Blancos, sits on a limestone plateau, split by the El Tajo Gorge. Its dramatic setting above the enormous gorge, which drops over 100 m. below, made Ronda one of the last Moorish bastions to fall. Spanning the gorge are 3 exceptional bridges, the most spectacular of these being an 18th century construction standing on two massive pillars built at the bottom of the gorge.

On the edge of the crevice, dazzling white Moorish buildings with intricate window grilles of metal decorate Ronda’s Old Town. In this setting, the Palacio de Mondragon, used by kings as a palace and the most important building in town, features amazing views from its gardens. Located in the Mercadillo (“Little Market”) in the newer part of town, Ronda boasts one of Spain’s oldest bullrings, and the nearby Church of Santa Maria la Mayor, originally a mosque converted to church, is an interesting blend of Moor and Christian architecture. With its fascinating history, Ronda is a city well worth exploring.

In addition to a relaxed respite into local Spanish culture, this Andalucian region features a multitude of activities: Walking and hiking, horseback riding, caving, paragliding, wind and kite surfing are just some of the many adventures on offer. The countryside is stunning, the white cobbled towns charming, and the easy-going, warm and friendly locals mark the Andalucian character. Life’s leisurely pace is infectious here and is like a breath of cool, fresh air in Spain’s sizzling climate.…

10 Tips For Being A Responsible Tourist

10 Tips For Being A Responsible Tourist

It’s important when you are traveling, anywhere in the world, to be aware of the concerns that a particular destinations limited infrastructure places on its environment. Certain countries in Asia particularly struggle with waste management and the control of available water resources. As travelers it’s imperative we do everything possible to assist with minimizing our impact whilst enjoying the facilities and services that our favorite destinations provide. The following is a list of some of the things you can do to assist local management authorities.

Refill Your Water Bottle:

Contribute to the waste management and help to recycle plastic by reusing your water bottle. This helps to save you money and is a simple way to exercise green practice.

Don’t Throw Anything In The Toilet:

Non-organic waste thrown into the toilet can create blockages and cause grey-water to flow into low-lying areas of land as well as the ocean. This increases pollution and can kill the fragile underwater eco systems.

Save Water:

Minimize your water consumption and always turn taps off when not in use. Keep showers to a minimum length of time. Many destinations, particularly small islands have very limited freshwater resources. Be as conservative as possible.

Dispose Of Rubbish Correctly:

Walk those few extra steps to place your rubbish in bins provided. If you see rubbish on the street, do your part and find a bin to put it in. We can all do our bit to keep our favourite destinations clean and inviting.

Avoid Walking On Reefs & Fragile Coastal Dunes:

Corals are particularly fragile organisms and it often takes decades for them to grow. Respect their space and avoid walking on them. Sand dunes are also fragile environments and subject to water and wind erosion. Do your part to assist with stabilising the dunes and stick to the paths provided.

Be A Good Role Model:

Set a good example for other tourists and show others your interactions with the environment can make a huge difference. Be proactive in getting the message across.

Switch Off The A/C When Out:

Consider the limited resources of many small destinations and turn off you’re A/C, lights, fans and other electricity when away from your accommodation. This will also help keep the running costs down in the places you choose to stay.

Avoid Taking Souvenirs From The Beach:

Seashells are often housing living animals and taking them out of their natural habitat will most likely kill them. For example, hermit crabs will look for new and bigger seashells as they grow. Don’t leave a hermit crab homeless.

Report Environmental Disturbances:

Interfering with aquatic animals, walking on reefs, anchoring boats and discarding waste are examples of non-eco friendly behaviour. Do your part and report incidents that you witness to local authorities.

Get Behind Local Environmental Activities:

No matter how small or insignificant they may seem, your contributions can have a great impact on the corner of the planet in which you live or spend your holidays. There are many ways in which to show your support for a cleaner environment. Participate in local activities such as beach clean-ups, education programmes, and other ecological activities.

As travellers it’s up to us to ensure that the beautiful places we seek out on our holidays remain just that for generations to come. The most insignificant of act can have either a positive or detrimental effect on the environment. Always consider your actions and be a responsible traveller.…
