Default Buying a Hearing Aid in Mexico

Hi all,
I'm planning a trip to Guadalajara in April and I need a hearing aid. I've been told that medical and dental services are much less costly in Mexico. Does anyone know if hearing aids (Like digital) are available and less expensive in Mexico?
Thanks in advance for your expertise.

Yes, they are. Once you get to Guadalajara, I'm sure the yellow pages will lead you to a source. Also, if you visit Lake Chapala, you might drop in at the Lake Chapala Society, in Ajijic, and ask when the hearing aid vendor will be there. I think he is available once each week.

Hello, I see the date of your question re. cost of hearing aids in Mexico. Did you ever get any information? I too am interested. On another matter, I've heard that it's possible to buy into the Mexican health system. At the moment, though, I'm looking for less expensive hearing aids... SDall

Items imported from the USA are generally more expensive and, if they were made in China, they may be very much more expensive because of duty as high as 500%. Since most of what is sold in the USA originates in China, this is no surprise. One must shop carefully for Mexican, South American or European products to find competitive prices. For example, Campbell's soups or Dole fruit cocktail, with English labels, imported from the USA, are too expensive for our pocket. However, those made in Mexico, often by the same parent company, with Spanish labels, are often 1/3 the price and frequently superior products as well. US products tend to be loaded with salt, or other preservatives, to achieve 'shelf life forever'.

You are correct in "medical and dental services" being much less expensive. Equipment is not.

If you need a top quality hearing aid, get one made in the U.S. We speak from experience since we have a congenitally deaf child. Buy only from a recognized dealer. U.S. hearing aids are recognized to be superior to those made in any other country. Best wishes!

Wondered if you had received info on how to buy hearing aids in Mexico for less than would be paid in the USA. We are particularly interested in border towns adjacent to California and Arizona, as we haven't yet moved to Mexico.

Thanks much,
Jusina
