James Dyde at CentralAmerica.com has assembled a useful information sheet that will help you to navigate the new COVID-19 test rules and help your customers to follow them with the least amount of stress, whether you’re in Costa Rica or elsewhere in Central America.

As providers, we therefore may wish to proactively address the situation in promotional materials or marketing campaigns. At the very least, we should be prepared to answer questions from prospective clients and assure them that obtaining a test should not be an impediment to a successful holiday.
