Following the introduction of new testing requirements for Canadian and U.S. travellers, the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau is helping travellers by offering testing at three prestigious hospitals, as well as local laboratories and clinics in the region.
Hospital Joya, Hospital CMQ and Hospital Punta Mita, in addition to several clinics, are fully equipped to attend to American and Canadian travelers requiring testing and are offering special rates for both.
Marc Murphy, managing director for the Riviera Nayarit CVB, explained that: “Riviera Nayarit has enough test kits as well as the capacity to assist its visitors with this new requirement prior to the return back to the United States and Canada.”
Murphy continued: “The destination has first-rate hospitals and clinics where travelers can have tests administered in a safe and convenient environment; we are prepared to make their visits as seamless as possible.”
Numerous resorts in the destination are also in the process of facilitating COVID-19 testing services for guests on-site.
Travellers are advised that they should review the test requirements according to the destination they are returning to as Canada requires negative results from a PCR test, while the U.S. will accept the PCR or Antigen test results.
As well, travellers are encouraged to make appointments with the hospitals ahead of time and that they must present their passport and departure plane ticket to travel in a period that does not exceed 72 hours.
