Tierra Magnifica is offering visitors planning to stay at its facilities the ‘peace of mind’ package, which includes a room credit of US$495 that covers the cost of two on-site Covid-19 tests, as well as Costa Rica’s mandatory travel insurance, supposing travellers stay for at least 10 days in Vista-category rooms at the resort, which is located in Nosara, Costa Rica.
Travel insurance for US travellers
In early January, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention made it mandatory for a negative Covid test to be presented should travellers wish to enter the US. Tierra Magnifica is clearly well aware that many of Costa Rica’s visitors hail from the US and could therefore use the second negative Covid-19 test offered through the package to guarantee their return to the country should they wish to travel in the first place.
However, what if guests should test positive before their trip back? Well, actually, as of 1 November 2020, Costa Rica is allowing all countries in the world to enter by air, as long as they meet the country’s visa and Covid-19 entry requirements. These requirements include having to have insurance that covers guests for extended lodging expenses due to pandemic illness (up to $2,000), as well as guaranteed coverage for medical expenses in cases of pandemic disease in Costa Rica, for at least US$50,000. Hopefully, this minimum level of cover will be enough should guests find themselves needing medical treatment while on their trip.
