Flamingo Rainbow

Keeping you in the loop on current policy updates. Just a heads up in case anyone is not fully vaccinated…Regardless, the Health Pass needs to be completed 48 hours prior to flying to CR. They will issue a QR code which you should save on your phone to show at passport control. To fly back to the US they currently (this could change of course) require a negative Antigen test 24 hours prior to travel. Our concierge can set up a testing service to come to the house to administer to everyone; super convenient. 

Everyone must fill out an electronic health survey called the “pase de salud” to obtain a QR code required by airlines and immigration officials.https://salud.go.cr

Travelers do not need to be vaccinated or tested, however un-vaccinated travelers MUST purchase $50,000 Covid Medical Policy, including $2,000 Quarantine Insurance
