  • All travelers must either be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 OR provide a negative COVID-19 test (antigen or PCR) taken no more than three days prior to departure for Guatemala.

Pre-Trip COVID-19 Testing Options:

  2. Contact The COVID Consultants (PCR only) and give them your timeline for travel and obtain a mail-in at-home test.
  • All travelers will be required to complete an antigen test to meet the CDC’s requirements for re-entry to the United States prior to international departure.


U.S. Re-Entry COVID-19 Testing Options: 

  1. At the La Aurora International Guatemala Airport (GUA).
  2. Purchase an Abbott BinaxNOW COVID-19 Ag at-home test kit to carry with you and complete prior to departure.  

Note: Some lodges have arranged for testing on-site and/or at a local facility. See itinerary for details and whether this is offered for your particular trip.
