Canada requires a Covid test done 3 days prior to returning to the country. Is there anywhere in Samara to get this done?
You could browse the July 23 list from the Tourism Institute of CR, ICT, - it has direct contacts for the onward travel Covid testing locations in different areas of CR - https://www.ict.go.cr/es/documentos-institucionales/material-de-apoyo-coronavirus/pruebas-covid-para-usa/1898-laboratories-authorized-in-costa-rica-for-test-sars-cov-2/file.html If you want to see some previous threads about Covid testing in Samara and area - e,g., Posts 9 and on at https://www.tripadvisor.ca/ShowTopic-g309247-i3245-k13479143-Road_to_Nosara_Dry_Season-Playa_Samara_Province_of_Guanacaste.html or ## 23-25 at https://www.tripadvisor.ca/ShowTopic-g309247-i3245-k13465132-o20-SAMARA_QUESTIONS_Working_Remotely_in_March-Playa_Samara_Province_of_Guanacaste.html . Hopefully, it won't cost you US300 pp reportedly charged for PCR tests by 1 Dr there.
Liberia airport has a lab, too. They offer rapid (not accepted by Canada) and PCR tests and charge US240 pp for a "3- hr RT PCR", and US99 pp for a "Next day RT PCR", though the Lab says it takes 2 days for the results, if the sample is taken on Sun. https://covid.morphotr.com/?intAction=test .Edited: 21 August 2021, 22:40
Good question...Morpho TRV is a travel Agnecy looing for commissions every time some body is refere by them or some Morpho representatives

riverwalk2014, I prefer to rely on official sources of information, incl. the included in my earlier reply list of direct contacts from the official ICT site, as well as to research multiple other visitors' experiences. The rest is up to you. How much to pay, to whom, whether it is what you would like to do or not.
NIce to change positions...life is great...Dr in samara is one of the best person I had ever meet...I hope he still there and safe !!
Thank you TA
You are more than WELCOME !!
