COVID-19 Test Required for International Travel

Travel Update: 

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), all air-travelers entering the United States and Canada will require to present proof of a negative COVID-19 test. This requirement will go into effect on January 26, 2021, and the test must be administered within 24 hours prior to their international departure. 

El Cid Resorts is always committed to our guests' satisfaction, health, and safety, for this reason, all of our resorts in Mazatlán, Cancún/Riviera Maya, and Cozumel are providing on-site easy and safe COVID-19 testing conducted by professional COFEPRIS certified laboratories.

To expand our Always Committed protocol program, we will be providing two COVID-19 Antigen tests per room per stay at no additional cost for stays of 5-nights or more for guests from the United States and Canada for traveling from March 1, 2022, through May 27, 2022. 

If guests require any additional tests done those can be arranged with our Concierge at an additional cost. For more information please contact our Concierge. 

Guests can contact our concierge to schedule their test during their check-in, and results will be provided and ready for guests to present to the airline on their flight home fulfilling CDC format.

For guests traveling to countries that do not accept the Antigen test and require PCR testing, a Concierge at each of our resorts will help coordinate and facilitate on-site testing with our partner laboratories.

The safety and well-being of our guests and staff is our top priority and making your stay with us a memorable one, and as pleasant as possible.
