As of 2018, the San Die­go de los Ba­ños Spa is in­te­gra­ted as an exclusive ser­vi­ce of the La Pra­de­ra In­ter­na­tio­nal Health Cen­ter. Spa pa­tients can en­joy two ty­pes of stay, one with a ther­mal treat­ment, and the ot­her in the va­riant of a ther­mal route that in­clu­des the main health des­ti­na­tions ta­king ad­van­ta­ge of the cha­rac­te­ris­tics of its wa­ters, their use and be­ne­fits for health. About the­se new ser­vi­ces, Dr. Rafael Le­des­ma Ro­sa, Pre­si­dent of the Cu­ban So­ciety of Me­di­cal Hy­dro­logy, com­men­ted in an exclusive for Ex­ce­len­cias.

WHICH PU­BLIC WILL THIS NEW SER­VI­CE BE DIRECTED TO? The ser­vi­ces in the spa meet ob­jec­ti­ves for in­ter­na­tio­nal pa­tients who co­me th­rough health tou­rism pro­grams and al­so for na­tio­nal pa­tients re­fe­rred from spe­cia­li­zed con­sul­ta­tions of the “Ju­lio Díaz” In­ter­na­tio­nal Reha­bi­li­ta­tion Cen­ter and the Pro­vin­cial Reha­bi­li­ta­tion Cen­ter of Pi­nar del Río, whe­re Pa­tients are pro­perly eva­lua­ted ac­cor­ding to the ty­pe of pro­gram cho­sen, pu­rely me­di­cal or tou­rist.

WHAT ARE THE MOST FRE­QUENT PATHOLOGIES TO BE TREATED IN SAN DIE­GO DE LOS BA­ÑOS? Tho­se pathologies that ha­ve to do with os­tiom­yoar­ti­cu­lar pro­blems, say ten­di­ni­tis, bur­si­tis, spi­nal pain, arth­ri­tic pathologies, res­pi­ra­tory pro­blems, der­ma­to­lo­gi­cal pro­blems and neu­ro­lo­gi­cal pro­blems such as pso­ria­sis. Its wa­ters are al­so used in treat­ments for di­ges­ti­ve and re­nal pro­blems. This is a the­ra­peu­tic means that cons­ti­tu­tes a na­tu­ral treat­ment to re­lie­ve the suf­fe­rings of tho­se suf­fe­ring from chro­nic pathologies that are dif­fi­cult to treat with usual me­di­ci­nes.

THE EX­TEN­SION OF THIS PRO­JECT MAY IN­CLU­DE OT­HER SPAS IN THE FU­TU­RE In Cu­ba we ha­ve around thir­teen spas of which four work pro­perly. Cu­ba has mo­re than one thou­sand four hun­dred springs of me­di­ci­nal mi­ne­ral wa­ters, in which ther­mal cen­ters of re­crea­tio­nal cha­rac­ter will be de­ve­lo­ped: so­met­hing very at­trac­ti­ve for in­ter­na­tio­nal tou­rism. Prac­ti­cally in every pro­vin­ce of Cu­ba, we ha­ve the pos­si­bi­lity of de­ve­lo­ping the ther­mal cul­tu­re and this is an at­trac­ti­ve pos­si­bi­lity that is cu­rrently con­si­de­red.
