    Are negative Covid Test result within 3 days of travel date required to fly into Cabo San Lucas, Mexico? American Airline web site says yes, but I am not sure if it is up to date and have not come across any other info that confirms this.

    Anyone who recently flew into Cabo can share their experience?

    I am aware a proof of negative Covid Test is required coming back into the US.

    Fly from Tijuana and you won't need it. A guy I work with does it and says that is the way to go and super easy in and out. Don't know if that's an option for you.

    Flew from SJD to SAN yesterday.
    No COVID test required to fly into Mexico.
    Negative COVID test required to fly back into US.
    Most hotels have testing on site.
    By the way, great weather all last week in Cabo.

    Ditto this. Cost $20 for test at hotel. Book your test early. When we flew back on a Saturday we had 160 people needing test Thursday.

    we just went to cabo about 3 weeks ago.. nothing to get in but the paperwork you need to fill out ... but coming back the US requires the Covid within 3 Days of departure .. the airline you are traveling on verifies proof of the negative Covid test ... most hotels are including it ... some you pay then they give you a food/drink voucher for same value of the test .. like $25 US ... super easy ... just dont forget to set it up as soon as you arrive to your resort or hotel ...

    Got back last night from Cabo airport. We did the test via a local doc at $45 each. Not one person in the US looked at the test! The rep at AK Air did look in Mexico to see if we had the paper test results. But again, nobody looked or asked about it in US..

    Just flying back into the US. Feels uncomfortable but it is what it is. As Sammy said most hotels have it just need to set it up.

    The airlines are doing the checking when checking in for flights.
    Had the same thing happen when I came back from Portugal. Walked up to Global Entry kiosk answered the usual questions, ticket spit out and on my way.
    It was the same when I got to, Portugal. Didn't want to see test, only my working paperwork, test was checked at Newark though.
