Covid tests in Cancun hotels
Since the United States and Canada require all travelers to enter by plane a negative covid test carried out no more than 72 hours before the trip, the hotels in Cancun and Riviera Maya have begun to do antigen and PCR tests. The Hotel Association said they are prepared to meet the testing needs for COVID-19 requested by both governments.
This of course will be very useful also for all countries that request the test when entering.
The PCR test costs on average $ 100 to $ 190, while the antigen test costs about $ 30. It depends on each hotel. Most of the hotels have designated a space for this purpose, the client only has to make their reservation and payment preferably at the time of check in.
