Travel Dreaming? These Caribbean Hotels are Already Offering On-Site Pre-Departure COVID 19 Tests

 In Our Travel Experience
SLS and Grand Hyatt Baha Mar are among the Caribbean resorts that will be offering on-site pre-departure on-site COVID-19 testing.

What do SLS Baha Mar*, St. Lucia’s Bay Gardens Beach Resort and Aruba’s Divi Phoenix Beach Resort all have in common?

Apart from being Caribbean resorts we’ve visited, loved and even featured on our travel travel blog, they are among the growing list of Caribbean hotels and resorts that are offering the convenience of on-site COVID testing.

Now that CDC orders are in effect requiring ALL air passengers age two and up departing from international destinations en route to the U.S. (yep, that means from the Caribbean too) to show proof of a recent (3 days) negative COVID-19 viral test before boarding their return flight, on-site COVID testing may be one of the most sought after hotel amenities.

We’ve pooled info from recent travel articles and directly from hotel and resort websites to provide you a sample listing of Caribbean accommodations offering COVID-19 testing on site. Direct links to their COVID-19 info is provided whenever possible. Keep in mind, the list is subject to change based on the impact of COVID both locally and internationally and that some hotels and resorts charge a fee for testing.

We don’t expect many of you to be traveling right now (we’re not). But if you’re like us, you’ll file this away as the must-have hotel amenity to include in your future travel plans.

Some Caribbean Hotels Offering COVID-19 Testing (subject to change):

For the most up to date information, be sure to check directly with the hotel, government travel advisories and media outlets such as Travel Agent Central and Essence Magazine who have published informative articles.
