If you're planning a trip to Costa Rica in 2021, you may be required to get a Covid-19 (Corona Virus) test before you are allowed to fly back to your home Country. For US and Canadian travelers you are required to provide proof of a negative test within three days of your flight or have a doctor's note stating that you have already contracted and recoverd from Covid-19. 

Luckily, we have you covered! There are several options for getting quick and reliable Covid-19 tests that won't interfere with your vacation. Stop in at a private clinic, get a quick swab, then go back to your vacation and wait 24-72 hours for an email with your results! Just make sure you have your results to show airport officials before you board your flight. 

Depending on your travel plans, you may need to change your itinerary so you are able to stop for a Covid test a three days before your departure. Private clinics with in-hourse testing have the best turn around time and guarantee results within 24-72 hours. At this time there are no known options for rapid testing.

You should know: The following information is intended for people who need a Covid-19 test for their onward travel. If you think you've contracted Covid and are experiencing symptoms you can call the Costa Rican hotline 1322 and they can direct you to a testing facility to get tested for no charge (this could take longer than 72 hours).
