COVID-19 Tests: Frequently Asked Questions
Travelers returning to the following destinations are required to show proof of a negative test prior to their departure from Los Cabos:
- Canada, effective as of February 28, 2022
- United States, effective as of December 6, 2021
According to the newest CDC announcement, all U.S. citizens traveling to the U.S. are required to get a viral test within 1 day before traveling. All will need to provide written documentation of their laboratory test result (paper or electronic copy) to the airline or provide documentation of having recovered from COVID-19, as well as a signed attestation letter. For travelers departing to the United States, options for this test include a PCR or Antigen test – valid with a medical certificate from the doctor. The Antigen test is a convenient option as it can be administered easily, in many locations including our resorts, and results can be provided the same day.
Travelers to Canada now have the option of using an authorized COVID-19 rapid antigen test result (taken the day prior to their scheduled flight) OR a molecular/PCR test result (taken no more than 72 hours before their scheduled flight). Click here for full information. Due to its characteristics, a PCR-type test cannot be performed in our onsite clinic; it can only be done by an authorized laboratory. Towever, the antigen test is a convenient option as it can be administered easily, in many locations including our resorts, and results can be provided the same day. For guests traveling to Canada who prefer a PCR test, please contact our concierge staff for information on how to make testing arrangements. Those traveling from Los Cabos may also book your appointment in advance here. Please take into consideration that PCR tests are not included in any meal plan and have an additional cost.

We strongly recommend that you make your appointment at least 96 hours before your departure flight to the U.S., ensuring that you can get an appointment within the required window: one day before your flight. You may schedule your appointment further in advance through our online pre-check-in (available 72 hours before your arrival at the resort) or upon your arrival.
We strongly recommend that you keep your appointment and avoid changes or cancellations. As it is important for each guest traveling to the U.S. to get a test within the mandated time, scheduling becomes very important. However, if a change or cancellation does become necessary, please contact guest services, the concierge, or front desk staff.
Again, we do strongly recommend that you keep and attend your scheduled appointment to avoid any type of mishap. If you require assistance, please contact guest services, the concierge, or front desk staff.

CDC does not recommend getting tested again in the three months after a positive viral test, as long as you do not have symptoms of COVID-19. If you have had a positive viral test in the past 3 months, and you have quarantined, you may travel instead with documentation of your positive viral test results and a letter from your healthcare provider or a public health official that states you have been cleared for travel. The positive test result and letter together are referred to as “documentation of recovery.”
The airline will confirm a COVID-19 negative test result or documentation of recovery for all passengers before boarding.

Testing must be performed using a viral test (NAAT or antigen), and negative results must be provided to the airline prior to boarding. The test result documentation must include information that identifies the person, a specimen collection date, and the type of test. A negative test result must show the test was administered within the 3 days before the flight. A positive test result (accompanying documentation of recovery) must show the test was administered within the 3 months before the flight.
According to the CDC, if you are arriving on a direct flight to the US, your test must be administered within 1 day before your flight to the US departs.

If your connecting flight to the US was booked separately or a connection in your itinerary lasts longer than 24 hours, you will need to get tested within 1 day before your flight that arrives in the US.
According to the CDC, if your flight is delayed before departure, you will need to get re-tested if the delay causes your test to fall outside of the required pre-departure testing period of one day before your flight.
