Where am I going to stay?
We are connected with Dali suites, those are located in the same area (playas de Tijuana), just 4 blocks away from the clinic, they are fully furnished and with kitchenette, the place is very private, high class, quiet, just for patients like you. Prices are very affordable and are totally separated from the clinic budget, they are just a steps away from 2 little malls that have supermarkets, movie theaters, restaurants, drug stores, coffee places, etc. Neighborhood is safe, this city area is where doctors, lawyers, arquitects, etc. lives and is steps away from the beach also. Check the web page: www.dalisuites.com Now with the new system of bed and breakfast you can search on line for local places where you can get affordable prices for a better place than the hotel.
