As more travel options start to open up, the Dominican Republic has likely been on the radar for many anglers and boaters. The Caribbean country is a well-known hotspot for sportfishing enthusiasts and casual vacation-goers alike with plenty of options for saltwater social distancing. Currently, U.S. citizens are able to travel to the tropical haven without the requirement of a negative COVID-19 test for entry.
Starting on October 26, visitors arriving in Costa Rica will no longer be required to provide a negative PCR coronavirus test result, according to Tourism Minister Gustavo Segura.

Magazine articles, TV shows, and social media posts continually bombard your owner with the news of tremendous action, amazing catches and/or incredible numbers in some far-off place on the globe. Cape Verde, Madeira, Australia, Galapagos Islands, Costa Rica, Tahiti, Papeete, Canary Islands, Panama, Azores even the Mediterranean Sea; all locations with a mystical pull that goes beyond the quest for big fish or big numbers, targets that represent adventure pure and simple. Going to these places, chartering a local captain for a couple of days is a lot of fun—staying and fishing on your own rig an entire season, or several, is life-changing.
Costa Rica will officially be reopening to visitors from all 50 US states starting November 1. However, Costa Rican authorities noted that requirements to enter Costa Rica, such as a negative PCR coronavirus test, remain unchanged.
