My partner and I are traveling to the Galapagos in July from the United States. At the moment, to re-enter the U. S., you need to show a negative Covid-19 test even if you're fully vaccinated (which we both will be soon), and we're not sure if federal guidance on this will be relaxed by July for international travelers. On the assumption that we will still need to present a negative PRC or antigen test, we're planning to try to get a test at the Quito airport before our return to the U. S., as we know that there is testing there provided by Medical VIP. However, I've seen conflicting information about when this testing is available. On their website, they appear to be saying that they are open 24 hours, but I saw an account from a Galapagos tour operator claiming that they only actually open for a few hours each day and close just before our Quito flight is supposed to get in (we would get in after 5 pm). We are just planning on getting an antigen test, which they promise results for in around 45 minutes.
Does anyone have firsthand experience with getting tested by Medical VIP at Quito's airport? Does anyone know if they are truly open 24/7 for testing and if they got back test results as quickly as they promised?
Thanks so much!
