In order to improve the service at the Hospital Metropolitano PCR Covid test site at Clinica Herradura in Los Sueños, Los Sueños has asked the hospital to increase coverage from 6 days to 7 days a week. Tests are administered between the hours of 12 noon and 6 pm, 7 days a week. Due to the extremely high volume of tests countrywide for citizens of the United States returning home, you should plan to have the test done 72 hours prior to your departure flight, with results being sent by email within 48-72 hours.
To clarify the steps to follow, you first need to fill out this form: www.mipruebacovid.com/en/form.html
If you write to the WhatsApp number +506-8631-3618 provided by Hospital Metropolitano, the automated response will simply send you a link to the above form. We wanted to help you complete the form, as certain portions of it can be tricky if you do not immediately know the answers. See the images below. This form must be completed before you do anything else. With the Application Number you get after clicking Submit you can then go on to fill in the second form to schedule your appointment:
You won't receive a specific time for your appointment. You will only be able to select a day. In order to schedule a specific time and avoid line ups, you can call the clinic at 2637-8610. There is an administrative person ready to help you with questions and schedule the time for your test. The cost has increased from US$135 to US$150 per test plus 4% tax. In the event that you were unable to schedule the test in time, the Hospital has a 24-hour turnaround option for US$400 plus 4% tax; however, the number of rapid tests is limited and based on availability. Payment is received by credit or debit card only.
