  • Hola Do you arrange shuffle to Costa Rica (puerto viejo) ? Do you arrange pcr test ? I am currently in panama, do I need a pcr test to come to Bocas ?

    You don't need a test to travel within Panama. To enter Costa Rica you need insurance that covers lodging in case of quarantine and medical expenses due to COVID, not a PCR test. There are shuttles to Puerto Viejo every day, we can help you book one.
