I am deleting my post. I am also going to let my membership here expire. I never dreamed that you ass holes would not respect another persons opinion. Instead, you act like the high and mighty Joe Biden. If my opinion doesn’t match yours, you will just berate me. I’m just a complete dumb ass.

Y’all are not the people I thought you were.

Sure! I could give each of you three or four dozen “peer reviewed” studies that differ from everything you have said. But, I know you are CNN fans, and nothing would change your mind. I’m. Beginning to believe, not one in a hundred of you, would even read them. So, I will just leave your little tea party.

Like I’ve said before. I’ve enjoyed reading many of your previous posts. Thanks for that.

So long.

So! I’ve been reading great things about MDE! I plan on reading everything I can before final plans in December, for a late January trip! I’m already excited about the new place! I hope to see some of you there!

If you have written about MDE, I will read it. If you have some information, you haven’t written about, or just want to give me some advice, I am all ears! This board has helped me a lot over the years!


1) Just an FYI: as of November if you are not vaccinated you will have to provide a negative Covid test taken no more than 24 hours before your return flight to the US. You can get Covid antigen tests in many places in Medellin, including at the airport prior to your flight - just make sure you give yourself plenty of time because sometimes the wait is an hour or more to get tested there.

2) As a MDE newbie your best bet is to stay at the Mansion.

Hola Captain,

Is Costa Rica requiring vaccination as of December in order to visit? What are the new requirements that you reference? Any info will be helpful.

Gracias,

Jac

Jacoret,

Full explanation is given in the General Information topic.

MH,

Unless things have changed you have to have a negative PCR or Antigen test to return to the USA regardless of vaccination status.

Yes. In a way. They are requiring proof of vaccination to enter most places of business. Including hotels, bars, etc.

Looks like you misunderstood my post. :mrgreen: I just mentioned the new unvaccinated requirement given the OP mentioned he doesn't believe in the vaccine.

As of November 2021, new rules for ALL international travellers to the US (citizens residents and visitors):
If you are unvaccinated, you need to show a negative COVID test dated no more than 24 hours before your flight.
If you are vaccinated, the usual 3 day time period applies.

It is obvious that a full vaccination requirement to enter CR is coming very soon, probably Dec 1. Why would you allow a tourist to enter the country that will not be allowed to enter any hotel in the country. The requirement just hasn't been announced yet.

Just to be clear, the requirement was announced by the government at a press conference on Wednesday. Also, the requirements were published (in Spanish) on the official website of the Costa Rica Ministry of Health, which has legal authority to close businesses and enforce the mandate.

https://www.ministeriodesalud.go.cr/ind ... n-covid-19

The process for citizens and residents of Costa Rica to comply has also been published. What is not yet clear, is the how the process will change for tourists who enter the country in the coming weeks.

So, if your travel plans include Costa Rica on or near Dec 1st, then it's possible being unvaccinated could cause problems.

Keep in mind that testing for COVID-19 is required before returning to the United States, and those who test positive have to extend their trip with a 2 week quarantine.

It's unclear how immigration requirements could change during the coming weeks.

It's unclear what would happen if an unvaccinated tourist arrives before Dec 1. but has a return ticket after Dec 1.

However, if you have been fully vaccinated and have your U.S. Vaccination Card, then the policy changes are not likely to pose much of a problem for your upcoming trip.

Your natural Covid anti-bodies last about 3-6 months. Vaccinated people now can get booster shots to lengthen the time that the vaccination is effective.

How will you get your booster? Go out and catch Covid again? From what i have read in reports from people who have had it twice, it's much worse the second time around.

Minus maybe Brazil, all Latin American countries are just as liberal as one another. I am sure that even though Colombia has not announced any vax-mandate as of yet, I sure that they, and most other Latin countries may soon follow suite.

Maybe you should plane a trip to Sweden or somewhere that you know will never mandate anything like that.

I'm afraid Sweden isn't an option for him, either :roll: : https://www.reuters.com/world/europe/sw ... 021-09-15/
