Hi 2L crew - for travel insurance, the rate is cheaper if you put in a lower trip cost. Trawick's rate are cheap if you put in $0 and just get the Covid-19 coverage. I recommend Travel Guard which also has an optional coverage just for lodging expenses in Costa Rica. It costs about $16.30. Here is the link to get a quote, and you get my assistance if you need to file a claim. TRAVEL GUARD


Here is a link to an article I wrote which mentions all of the requirements and stats. COVID UPDATE IN COSTA RICA

Insurance required in Costa Rica, Covid test within 3 days required to get into Nica, have to drop rental car off at border - cross - get one on the other side, reverse that rental process on the way back, and get a covid test before you can leave costa rica for the US. Vaccination status does not matter there or here regarding entry. Well I guess surfing is an adventure.

And before you leave you will have to get a Covid test, the antigen one, at least 3 days before you leave. You can do that now at the airport. Add 2 more hours to your get to the airport time! I'm here now and headed home. Plus my flight is delayed by 7 and a half hours. When you buy a cheap flight, get Covid insurance and a Covid test it's not cheap anymore. Add to that the limited flights and a major delay is possible. I'll come back when all this Covid shit is over. Not sooner.

Me and everyone I'm traveling with have been inoculated. There is still no provision for that.

Same same. Get trip insurance for 6 days, Costa for 6 days, get covid test, drive to border, drop rental off, cross border dragging our shit, get rental, drive to popoyo area, stay 7 days, get trip insurance for 1 day, drop rental off, cross border dragging our shit across, get rental, drive to airport, get covid test, fly home.

Fun times, but at least the swell is Solid the whole time.

Had to bail on the second half of my trip due to a broken hand, but my buddies are telling me that doing anything through NSR now is a horrible experience. Prices are jacked up, nickel and dimed to death on everything, and service is shit. Its like they want to lose surf tourism $$. Maybe just go at it completely on your own for that area, its easy to do, or hit up Shay's place at the boom if you want a total package. They never disappoint.

Anyone got info on El Salvador? Looks like flights are accessible and don't see the travel insurance requirement.

Just got back from El Salvador two weeks ago. Great trip. Seems to be the easiest and cheapest central american surf locale these days. Vaccination card or negative test gets you in and you need a negative test regardless of vaccination status to get back in the states. Can get one for $30 in San Salvador and you get your results in about an hour. Make sure you get the antigen test from Analiza or you'll be paying more. Stay at Hotel Michanti in El Zonte and tell Felipe that Porter sent you. Good central location close to a lot of good waves.
