Dr. Kuri makes traveling to Mexico for lap band surgery safe and easy for his patients. You have the option to arrive via air or park at the US/Mexico border parking lots. Private transportation is provided throughout your stay between your arrival and departure locations for lap band surgery in Mexico, Hospital Angeles and the Palacio Azteca Hotel.

Travel By Air

For those who have to fly, San Diego Airport is the ideal location to land. It is about a 30 minute drive from the airport to Dr. Kuri’s facility.

Travel By Car

Many from the Southwest region drive and park on the US side of the international border. Whether you fly or drive, our transportation service will take you across the border to Mexico and directly to Dr. Kuri’s office. Return transportation is also provided.

Travel Across Border

If you choose to drive across the border in lieu of our transportation service, the directions are as follows:

From the border, follow the signs to Zona Rio Paseo De Los Heroes.
Continue straight on Paseo De Los Heroes passing through four major circles:

  • 1st Circle: Metal Monument (Ave Independencia)
  • 2nd Circle: Cuauhtémoc Circle (Ave Cuauhtémoc)
  • 3rd Circle: Lincoln Monument (Ave Diego Rivera)
  • 4th Circle: Man on a Horse (Ave Abelardo Rodriguez)
  • After passing through the fourth circle, you will begin to see the Hospital Angeles up ahead on your right.
  • Turn right just past the hospital on Mision de la Paz.
