Adjacent to the Holiday Inn in Ixtapa is a small office doing the testing. These are the same people testing for Krystal. The clinicians come to your place of residence or your hotel and do the testing at your location. The cost is only $700 pesos per test. The results available in 15 minutes delivered via email pdf. ***

Antigen testing is also available at the Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo airport for passengers flying to the USA. Anyone can go to the airport to be tested. It is not limited to passengers. It takes about twenty to twenty five minutes for them to email the results to you. So make sure you have some sort of well charged email receiving device along with you. You can only pay by MC or Visa, credit or debit card. NO CASH!!! The price is 579 MXP for airline passengers. The general public can get a test there also for 699 MXP. *


The antigen testing at the Krystal and Holiday Inn hotels in Ixtapa is being done by a lab called Azumed.
