hi. the whole family caught covid in february. in march we went to pr for spring break. thanks to god both kids had the same spring break this year.

to go to PR you must register on this website (https://1link.travelsafe.pr.gov/)
you must have proof of a valid covid test within 72 hours of departure
the site sends you a qr code to your email
btw you give them your phone number

when you get to the island dudes in white hazmat suits scan your qr code
if you dont have it you get sent somewhere else. where? i dont know. i had my damn qr code.

i dont know man but the lines for avis/budget are out of control. i dont feel that san juan airport does a good job facilitating car rental.

everyday you get a text, are you sick? respond: Si No. heard it was for contact tracing.

everywhere you go theres a thermometer thing and hand sanitizer. a store worker will take your temp and spray your hands in some places. otheriwse you are expected to do it yourself. you can do take out at restaurants or eat at tables. places were hopping.

people where masks everywhere as far as i saw. there was stuff on tv/fb we saw before we left about rowdy tourists being rowdy but we saw none of that.

we stayed in anasco on the water. met the mayor on the beach, he goes: check out the rincon beach resort - its nice! its in anasco wonder who owns it? everybody was very nice. relaxed. rincon art walk at the plaza on Thursdays is going strong. nice art of all sorts. worth it at least once.

last day spent in old san juan. plaza de palomas is closed. cathedral is open. free, unless you wish to donate. the grave of ponce de leon! and otherwise a beautiful enough place for a visit. we didnt have much time but is la perla a tourist destination nowadays? met some nice ladies, navy veterans, planning to move to the isalnd live in arecibo as theres a new VA hospital being built there. i dont know much about that but they were sweet.

my wife got an ear infection at some point and asked me to find her a dr on wednesday. me - remembering showing up at the dr office at 6am and waiting to 4pm to get seen was not looking forward to it. i called 4 places - no new patients during pandemic and finally got a dr in mayaguez who took an appt. me - having that look like when you ask Tato if you can take this beer fiao.

we waited 20 minutes in the office and my wife was seen. they spent the next 20 minutes talking about nyc and the drs family and whta not. the walls being thin. we were out of there in no time with a recipe for the pharmacy called in. ok maybe an hour wait at the walgreenswhere they were also doing covid shots. and we were done.

to remember how it was and to see this? my wife for the FIRST TIME EVER said she'd consider moving back.

anyway - had a great time.

My only complaint about the airport is air traffic is recovering but the airport businesses are still half closed. Add in the staffing restrictions for covid and rhe lines at gustos are out of control.
As for masks, the people who are being "rowdy" must be really out of control, the cops were definitely not running a police state. I believe people are bringing mainland anticop mentality with them, spitting on cops, etc.

So, what happens to those persons who can prove they've been fully vaccinated?

Has anyone travelled to PR after being fully vaccinated?

Is proof of a negative Covid test still required?

I'm confused as to what is required when travelling to PR right now.

yes, although they did mark our vaccination cards, rules have not been adjusted as yet. PCR test, not antigen. you can fill out the form online and just have the barcode scanned to speed up the process.
