Hi all, we have a trip to Anguilla planned for May 26-30. All this could go out the window if the border remains closed, but if the lockdown is lifted and we are able to travel there -- I'm getting different info from different sites and it's starting to make my head spin.
From anyone who has traveled to Anguilla during COVID, I'm hoping you can help clear up some questions:
1. We are flying into SXM and will take the airport ferry to Anguilla. JetBlue said we can take a rapid test when we arrive at the airport (day of). But I see on St. Maarten's website https://stmaartenehas.com/ that we have to upload our test results and also fill out a self-health declaration form all prior to arrival, which would suggest we need to do this 24-72 hours ahead of time and not at the airport. Is this true or will a rapid test at the airport pass St. Maarten customs?
2. Does this test satisfy Anguilla's requirements as well? I just spoke with a rep at Cap Juluca who said we would be tested at our port of arrival and would quarantine in our room until those test results come in. So it sounds to me like two separate negative tests - one for St. Maarten and one for Anguilla?
3. Cap Juluca wants to charge $95/person round trip to take us to/from the ferry port. Seems steep for a 15 min drive. Are taxis on the island reliable/safe?
Any insight is greatly appreciated -- thanks so much!
