Although Costa Rica does NOT require a negative Covid test to enter the country, some countries may still require a negative Covid test to come home. If you need to get a test before going home, we will be happy to help.
Blue Osa is in partnership with doctors and labs in our local town, to provide a PCR Covid test 1-day before your departure. Additionally, there are testing facilities in the San Jose (SJO) International Airport.
Blue Osa will schedule the appointment in Puerto Jimenez for you. You will go there and take the test and return to Blue Osa. You will receive the results after you take the test via email.
The test is currently $160 plus the shuttle fee to Puerto Jimenez. Occasionally, with large groups, we are able to have the Doctor come to Blue Osa to administer the tests.
Alternatively, you may also get a rapid test at the international airport. This rapid test in the San Jose Airport (SJO) is provided for a fee of $65. They suggest that you arrive at the airport 4 hours before your departure. (Follow this link for more information.)
Please check with your country’s vaccination and testing requirements before traveling, as this information is continuously changing.
Updated versions of these requirements are listed here.
As of April 1, 2022
For all tourists coming to Costa Rica, the health pass and the insurance requirement for unvaccinated foreigners will be eliminated and all activities and events will be able to operate at 100% capacity without requiring the use of a QR Code.
