In these cases, clients will access or leave the lodge by ground transportation by  4x4 vehicle (approximately a  45-minute ride ).  A refund of the unused portion of the rafting trip will be given under these circumstances.

Refunds

No refund will be made for no-shows of any unused portion of the itinerary, whether voluntary or caused by airline delay or cancellation. Involuntarily unused services will be refunded subject to the policies of individual suppliers. In this case, we reserve the right to deduct a service charge. Any petition for refund must be received in writing within 30 days of scheduled departure to Costa Rica  and must be accompanied by all negotiable vouchers, air tickets, etc. No refund will be made for cancellations 60 days or less during Christmas Season.

Our trips include all services as specified in the respective itinerary. The final itinerary and price that is accepted by the client shall be considered binding in its nature (whether by e-mail or fax) and only those services mentioned will be included.

Domestic Flights

Aventuras Naturales acts as an agent for the purchase of domestic airline tickets and the passenger contract in use shall constitute the sole contract between the airline and the passenger. Aventuras Naturales is not responsible for cancellations or delays of domestic flights or for any lost services as a result thereof. Domestic flights are regularly scheduled. In the case of non-operation of a domestic flight for any reason, the client will be responsible for any additional expenses or will pay the difference for a charter plane. Due to the risk of flight delay or cancellation, Aventuras Naturales does not recommend scheduling domestic flights on the same day as international flights; all clients insisting on scheduling domestic and international flights on the same day shall do so at their own risk.

All clients will receive upon arrival an envelope with a welcome letter, information about contact persons and emergency numbers, copies of final itinerary and vouchers. All clients should be properly advised that only vouchers from Aventuras Naturales are valid in Costa Rica and are non-transferable.

Insurance

Aventuras Naturales is covered with an insurance policy issued by the National Insurance Institute of Costa Rica (Instituto Nacional de Seguros). However, we strongly suggest that your agency, or the clients themselves, arrange for a short-term traveler's insurance covering baggage, accident/life and trip cancellation. Please note that Costa Rica's insurance industry is state-owned, and the insurance that we are permitted to purchase for our trips is limited. If the rare occurrence of an accident should happen, the client will be responsible for paying for medical attention received at the time of service and will need to contact his/her insurance company directly for reimbursement upon return to their home country. Aventuras Naturales is not responsible for covering any medical costs not specified in our insurance policy, including transportation to/from medical services, translation or interpretation services or hospital deposits; nor are we liable for a client's inability to make the required payment.

For those trips and tours where Aventuras Naturales is not the source or provider, we act solely as agents and as such assume no responsibility should any supplier fail to provide the service contracted. Baggage is the sole responsibility of the owner and will be transported at the owner's risk.

We reserve the right to decline to accept, or to retain, any person as a tour member for any reason that affects the operation of the tour, the rights and welfare or enjoyment of the other tour members. A refund of the recoverable land tour services is the limit of Aventuras Naturales liability in this event.
