    No pre-test for COVID-19?

    On the contrary, as most destinations now require (which is a good thing), a pre-test showing negative result is required to enter Colombia.
    • For air travel into Colombia, a negative PCR test result issued within 96 hours prior to your departure will be required by the Colombian authorities. If you cannot get a test or certification, contact your airline directly
    • Travellers with a negative PCR test result will not be required to quarantine on arrival in Colombia
      • Between 24 hours and 1 hour before departure, you must fill out the ‘Check-Mig’ form, available on the Migración Colombia website. You will receive a confirmation email that you will need to present upon arrival in Colombia. You will need to also complete this form 24 hours before your departure from Colombia.

    @Dom@DiveAdvice thanks for the info. I told this news & special deal to my buddies. It’s too short of a notice for me and the flight from Houston to Cali is still pretty steep. I’ll just stick with the original plan of being there next July.

    Saw this interesting video by Didier Noirot during his visit last year to Malpelo with MV Ferox.

    According to this video by Reto Müler, there is 2nd liveaboard, MV Seawolf, that also began to operate in Malpelo in February 2020
