We traveled to Costa Rica May 14-25. The Shana helped us coordinate our COVID-19 rapid test in Quepos in advance. Testing is required before returning to the USA. We used Whatsapp to contact them and they were always quick to respond back. We were not stressed about our trip when we arrived and knew our plans in advance. We are so grateful for the assistance.
