In connection to the recently introduced order by the CDC, effective January 26, 2021, that requires all air passengers traveling to the U.S. to provide proof of a negative Covid-19 test through a PCR or Antigen test and have taken it no more than 72 hours before your departure; we’d like to share that Los Cabos Airport has proactively taken action to install a temporary laboratory in partnership with, Laboratorio Medico Polanco, to provide you with accessibility to both tests.
To help travelers’ expenses, the tests will be valued at a reasonable price:
The Antigen test will have a cost of $450 MXN / $25USD, and the PCR test will be $1450 MXN / $72USD. It is important to mention that these prices are only applicable to travelers with international flights.
One of our team members has single-handedly been tested at this airport facility and can attest to a trustworthy and high quality service received. The results were reliable and administered in a very professional manner, as well as the protocols and equipment used to carry out the test was remarkable.
Here we share some images.
We recommend all travelers to:
- Plan ahead and check if your airline requires any health information, additional testing, or other documentation.
- Due to space limitations of only 3 cubicles within the temporary airport laboratory, you may run the risk that it may be occupied. It would be best if you are able to take the test at your hotel, or another laboratory; otherwise, anticipates a minimum of 1 hr to your travel itinerary to complete the test. (30 minutes if there are a waiting time and 30 minutes for test results.)
In addition to these actions, we would like to recognize all the efforts made by the hotels in Los Cabos; they too provide security measures and processes to cater to all guests during their hospitality.
These efforts include providing personal protective gear (such as face masks and antibacterial gel), sanitized hotel rooms, and private transportation. They follow up with personalized attention to anyone presenting covid symptoms and some hotels can provide discounted rates or at no cost hospitality to guests with positive COVID results.
We encourage you to learn more by contacting your hotel & following all protocols and mandates for your health.
We look forward to seeing you in Los Cabos soon to continue to enjoy the best adventures this destination has to offer. Today and always, Los Cabos lives to be a unique and unforgettable experience that never comes to a halt.
We hope to see you very soon, AMIGOS!
