On September 2, the Local Government Units (LGUs) of Baguio City and Ilocos Region signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to start the dry run of the travel corridor plan in Baguio, Pangasinan, La Union, Ilocos Sur, and Ilocos Norte. It is set this September 22, 2020. Only residents from these areas will have the liberty to visit the tourist sites in the five provinces. Since some of my friends have been asking me if there are hotels in San Juan, La Union that are now accepting tourists, I decided to prepare this list. I was able to request a list from the Department of Tourism (DOT) of the accommodation establishments in San Juan, La Union that were issued a Certificate of Authority to Operate (CAO) / Provisional Certificate of Authority to Operate (PCAO).
This post is not sponsored but some links in this post are affiliate links. It took me some time to come up with this list and I would appreciate it if you book through the links. I may earn a commission from these links but it comes at no extra cost to you. The small income I make from these links will help in maintaining this blog.
What are the documents needed upon check-in at the hotel/accommodation establishment?
According to our neighbor who works in one of the hotels here, the following needs to be presented upon check-in:
- Travel authority
- A local health unit-issued health certificate from the place of origin. It must be issued within 3 days before the actual arrival in La Union.
- Negative RT-PCR results issued within 3 days before actual arrival in La Union
