    I’m here now and leave on Monday. Im planning to go to the Palm Beach Mall for my test. I’m staying at Azure and I met a couple that told me the concierge made appointments for them for antigen test and they came right to Azure. Did not charge any extra, it was $50.

    Thanks to all for sharing your experiences with testing on the island. Excited to even be thinking about a trip sooner than later now! Hoping for continued success for the island! Let's Aruba!!

    Just because I like to know worst case scenarios... If one tests positive on their return test does anyone know what the exact protocols are? Just curious where you would have to stay etc while I assume you are in quarantine for some amount of time. I'm vaccinated so hoping an unlikely event, but you never know. Thanks!

    Covid test - Return to US

    Quote Originally Posted by Lori&BobS View Post

I've heard many resorts are offering them on site as a convenience. However, we prefer to stay in a condo (Oasis or LeVent) and I don't believe that option exists at either. Once Aruba is official with reducing those inbound restrictions, we hope to get a trip on the books quickly. Just trying to understand this one important logistic once on the island. Anyone have direct experience to share? Thank you...can't wait to be Aruba bound!!
    "We returned from Aruba last Friday. Testing was easy, we only needed an antigen and not a PCR to return. We tested at the mall at Palm Beach. By the time we returned to our condo, we had the test results back. It was $30 or $35 dollars. If you read on the Aruba Website, the US states you can do a PCR or Antigen to return. Antigen is cheaper."

    Antigen test is cheaper, but can test positive more easy. If you have flu or cold symptoms, then you will test positive with Antigen test. I would rather pay alittle xtra and do the PCR. Its alot better. Thats just my 2 cents!

    We did the PCR for just that reason. A friend's son tested positive with the antigen test(at college) two weeks after getting vaccinated and was put in isolation-no symptoms, no one in his immediate circle were positive.
