REQUIRED FOR TRAVEL & ENTRY

  • For entry into Costa Rica, the only special requirement at this time is that visitors must complete a “Health Pass” form which will prove you have obtained a special medical travel insurance that is now required. This is a program from the Costa Rican government. It IS POSSIBLE that any personal health and travel/trip insurance you have might also cover this requirement but we strongly recommend purchasing the affordable Health Pass insurance regardless so as to avoid any possible complications entering the country in the case your personal insurance not be authorized.  FOR THE MOST UP TO DATE REQUIREMENTS please visit the official Costa Rica government tourism page here.
  • A COVID negative test result is now necessary for all persons returning to the USA (and Canada). The test must be taken within 72 hours of flight. Of course this may or may not still be a requirement by the time you travel here but that’s the requirement as of today. The CDC says you’ll need a viral test to board a plane to the United States. There are two types of tests available, viral and antibody. A viral test tells you if you’re currently infected with COVID and an antibody test tells you if you used to be infected. For this ruling, airlines will insist on a viral test, taken within three days before their flight to the United States departs. Viral tests themselves come in two types, the PCR test and the Rapid Antigen Test. The CDC will accept either type for travel to the United States. SEE NEXT Bullet point for “How to Get Tested while in Costa Rica” below.
  • How can I get tested on my trip? We are aware of the logistics necessary to obtain these tests for your guests and the required testing can be arranged prior to your visit with us. Currently, there are 2 private clinics in Quepos (the town right next to Manuel Antonio) that offer COVID testing. The turnaround time for test results is between 24 – 72 hours.  The Villa has streamlined the COVID testing process making it as unobtrusive on your stay as possible; a special negotiated group rate (12+ persons) package is offered wherein the clinic’s COVID tester will personally come to the villa so there will be no need to leave the premises! On-site (at the villa), pricing for COVID testing ranges from $125 – $200 per person depending on which laboratory they are able to secure for the testing. The Villa Concierge staff will arrange an appointment for our group, and required forms per each individual will need to be filled out on-line.

Reviews

This property is top notch in every way. The attention to detail in architecture, interior design, and furnishings is outstanding. The views from every room – breathtaking, and there was yet another dynamic to celebrate, the warm and courteous staff. We were pampered by the 24-hour concierge service and the joyful kitchen staff who offered complimentary breakfast each morning. Daily our group of 14 guests would praise different aspects of the villa and thoughtfulness of the staff. Kudos to the visionaries behind the Villa Punto De Vista compound, as they have created a true haven to celebrate PURA VIDA! ”

B. Royer

Architecturally speaking, this may be one of the most beautiful, if not THE most beautiful place I’ve ever stayed in. Every detail within the home has been well thought through. The intention of the villa was to combine elements of a 5-star hotel through the service, elegance, sophistication and ambience, but provide a private space for an intimate experience. And the blend of these two worlds is done flawlessly. The villa’s location will wow you, it is in close proximity to all the best activities Costa Rica has on offer including ATV, horse riding, waterfall exploration, whale watching, surfing and more. From the vila, there are native friends staring at you from their trees just a few feet away. I’m talking about the sloths, the three different types of monkeys, toucan birds, iguanas and other stunning wildlife Costa Rica is known for. The greatest part of my stay within the villa was the warmth and the care received by the staff. Within days the staff felt like family, attending to my every need and desperately wanting to ensure I had the greatest experience possible in their country. If you book this villa, get ready for one of the best weeks of your life.”
