Hospital Metropolitano / Quepos Clinic
PCR testing and antigen testing are both available. At the time of your actual appointment, if the rapid antigen test is available (due to limited supplies) then that option can be ordered. The PCR test is the “Gold Standard” of testing and has a slightly higher accuracy rate as compared to the antigen test. Some airlines do not accept the antigen test, so please check with your airline in advance.
Test results will be delivered to you directly via email within 24-36 hours for both tests. The results of either tests are final and absolute. You cannot retest or take the other type of test in hopes of getting a different result.
The cost is $55 per person for the antigen test and the PCR test is $115. Both will be paid directly to the medical professional at the time of testing by credit card. You can pay by cash, but you will also be charged 13% VAT.
Testing is done at the clinic at the Quepos marina and an appointment is required and a form filled out in advance.
