Good Samaritan Clinic , Xolol , San Luis Potosi , Mexico
Where in the World?
The Good Samaritan Clinic is located
approximately 300 miles south of
Brownsville, Texas, in the south east
corner of the Mexican state of San
Luis Potosí, about an eight-hour drive
from the U.S. border.
The facility is about a hundred miles
inland from the Gulf of Mexico, along
Highway 85 south of Ciudad Valles
just as the highway enters a long
narrow valley. Walled in by steep
forested mountains, the highway
continues on to Tamazunchale
meandering through a lush valley carpeted with miles of rolling pasture interspersed with fields of
sugar can and dense citrus and banana groves.
The property is known locally as El Rinconcito, "the little corner. The "little corner" is formed by
the junction of Highway 85 and the road to Tancanhuitz de Santos, at the roadside village of Xolol.
This modest, well-groomed, almost garden like compound is home to La Clinica Buen Samaritano.
