We are happy to cancel your tour date if things change on you. Please cancel as soon as you can. This tour is unique in that we stay in a few hotels that are pricey and have limited availability. We have to book some of these hotels over a month in advance and pay in full at that time. They have strict cancellation policies so do be aware that if you cancel within 30 days of the tour date, we incur charges that we can't avoid and therefore have to charge cancellation fees. This tour is expected to sell out and late cancellations keep others from being able to book. Cancellations made within 30 to 7 days of the tour date will incur a 50% cancellation fee and cancellations made with less than 7 days before the tour date will incur a 75% cancellation fee.
Upcoming Tour Dates
We are offering our next 10 day tour of Costa Rica on January 5 - 14, 2024. We will likely offer one 10 day Costa Rica to Panama tour in February 2023 as well, but have not yet chosen those dates. This fall (2023) we expect to offer a tour to Cuba as well as a tour to Medellin, Colombia. Our tours typically sell out so please book early if you want to join. We don't run anyone's deposit to their credit card until about 20 days before the tour date and not until your flights are booked and confirmed. Our tour to Cuba requires we stay in "Casa Particulars" much like airbnb or VRBO, these are rooms in people's houses. It's a bit tricky to keep us all together but we know how to do it.
