Went today to Dr. Box for Covid test, and we highly recommend it. Cost is $700 pesos for the PRUEBA RÁPIDA DE ANTIGENOS PARA SARS-COV2. Located on Calle Naranjos near corner of Benito Juarez (across from the mercado municipal). It's next to (and shares parking with) Farma Pronto with drive-up parking. (Note: This is NOT Farma Pronto with drive up parking on Benito Juarez.)
Gilian was our nurse - she was very professional and double-checked all the data before printing results. There was no wait and no pain - just a little ticklish feeling. Total time from walk-in to results was less than 30 minutes. She also emailed results. If you don't speak Spanish, there's a monitor with translator.
I think the hours are 7am - 8pm, 7 days a week, but not sure. Bring your passport. You can use credit card or cash to pay - she walks you next door to Farma Pronto to pay and get the test kit.
