Not sure if I agree with the logic about cancelling tests altogether, but I do agree the extreme cost of a PCR test is prohibitive. I was "lucky" to get mine here for $2900p as opposed to one local hospital's $6900p charge, but that's still pretty expensive for many people. I have never read why the cost is so high.

Yes, nix the PCR test in favor of the cheaper antigen test.

Agree. The cheaper antigen test for those with vaccination certificates and the PCR for the unvaccinated seems like a reasonable compromise.
Just downloaded my vaccination certificate and made six copies. Also checked the code with the QR reader on my phone and it worked just fine. Now I can go to Canada but it's, er, getting chilly up there in Ontario.

What's the name of the lab behind the Chapala bus station doing the PCR tests? Is an appointment required?

If you do go, be aware that there are two lineups. The left-side office is for testing, and people seem to just walk in. The right-side main office usually has a table to take your name, but doesn't seem to care that you already have an appt, so I had to notify them, which prompted a response from someone inside, but I still had to wait.

I called and made an appointment for my daughter. The price has gone up to $2300 for the PCR.
