Travel Restrictions

We are committed to helping you navigate the complicated modern world of travel in 2023. Keep an eye on this page for updates regarding Ecuador entry requirements, and general international travel guidelines.
(Please note that keeping up with your home country’s travel requirements is your own responsibility.)

Ecuador Entry Requirements

Each passenger must also fill out a Declaration of Health document online before their flight. This will be requested before you board your flight. No vaccine card or PCR test is required as of the 20th of October 2023.

Upon arrival in Ecuador, randomly selected passengers may have to take a rapid antigen test. If the result is positive, they must isolate in a government approved hotel for 10 days. Also, a rapid antigen test is required for anyone arriving into Ecuador showing symptoms of COVID-19.

Contact us if you have any questions about these travel requirements.

USA Entry Requirements

From January 25, 2020, the US government requires that inbound travelers to the USA will be required to present a PCR or rapid antigen test before boarding their flight, with the test date being within 3 days before their flight date.

Getting a PCR test nearby is very easy, and you don’t have to leave early to get it in a big city and wait around for the results.

The lab nearby the hospital can give results in 1 day for $45. The lab is open Monday through Saturday. So, a test taken on Friday would give results on Saturday, and a test taken on Saturday would give results on Monday.

The US requires the test date to be within 3 days of travel, so that test would be sufficient to get the results in time to fly out. We can help organize a group trip to get this test on the last day of the festival for those who are flying to the US shortly after.

“What if I get stuck?”

In case a new travel rule is instated while you are at the festival, and you have a temporary delay in your travel plans, we can often accommodate people via our low-cost room rental or tent camping options at Terra Frutis and nearby Fruit Haven.
