Los Algodones, Mexico

By Captain Chuck, owner of this World Record Event website.

I am promoting Erika Medina – Dra. Erika Medina – Algodones Mexico, about a 2 hour drive from Palm Springs California.

Los Algodones, Baja California, is a small Mexican town located on the extreme northeastern tip of the municipality of Mexicali, approximately 16 km (9.9 mi) west of Yuma, Arizona, USA. Its official name is Vicente Guerrero. It reported a population of 5,474 as of the 2010 Mexican census. It also serves as a borough seat of its surrounding area.

We have found it one of the most safest places to visit in Mexico. Their living, income and business depends on tourist, so this place is very safe. There are also plenty of Police as they want to keep it that way. SAFE. I have never seen or heard of a problem there and I have been going there for 10 years now. Have fun.

Los Algodones is the northernmost town in Mexico, and at its northeastern tip is the northernmost point in Mexico, and in Latin America. Another interesting geographical distinction is that if someone were to travel in any of the four cardinal directions from anywhere in Algodones (due north, due east, due south, or due west), they would cross a U.S. border.

Situated near the borders of both southeastern California and southwestern Arizona, Los Algodones has become a popular tourist attraction in recent years due in part to inexpensive shopping and restaurants as well as inexpensive medical care and prescription medicines. The warm, dry climate of the area attracts a number of older tourists from across the United States and Canada who settle during the winter in the nearby towns of Yuma, Arizona and Winterhaven, California. Organized day trips from the Coachella Valley are popular among seniors as well.

Well it just so happens that I have been going to this town and one dentist for at Least 10 years. This dentistry and the owner is the best dentist I have ever gone to and the cheapest. She and they are amazing. She has never raised her price in 10 years+. Easy to get to. I park i the parking lot at the border. Walk down and into Mexico and only a 5 min walk, unless I stop at the restaurant around the corner that Dra. Erika Medina is as nice as can be. I have sent her so many people and they all love her and the extreme low prices. I have one friend that had fallen while walking with her daughter and broke 6 teeth. She had a bid of over $6-$10she went to Ericka and got it done for $1600 and she said it was the best job she has ever had. She loves this dentist. I go there three times a year for normal teeth cleaning $16. I go there once a year for deep cleaning $100. I highly recommend this place. Have I ever gotten a break on my dental by sending her new people,  no, and that is alright. I do recommend her as she is that good. Summer is best time to go, hot but not quite as busy as it gets in the winter.

By the way, shopping is super. Hats,  jewelry, clothing and you can buy just about any drug without a prescription and cheap. Tequila, the best brands for 1/2 price or better then you can in the U.S. Same brands you buy here in US.
