CANCELLATIONS AND CHANGES
If you want to maximize your experience on your vacation, the best way to do that is to plan your tours and activities well in advance of your arrival. You will do more, experience more, spend less, get higher quality excursions, and perhaps most importantly, and spend none of your vacation negotiating or looking at tour books.
To make this as easy as possible for you, we offer one of the most flexible cancellation and change policies around. If you have any doubts, please contact us.
1. CHANGING YOUR TOUR DATES
All Date Changes Prior to 48 Hours Before the Tour Date are Free of Charge.
Exception: Private Groups (10 or More) or Private Boat Charters 40 Feet or Larger: 15 days prior to the tour date.
You may change your date closer to the tour date in the following circumstances:
- You are on a cruise ship, and your cruise ship does not make port due to weather or other reasons, per our no-port, no-pay policy below.
- You are not able to attend your tour due testing positive for COVID-19 or restrictions placed on travel, per our COVID-19 policy below.
- We must cancel your tour for weather, mechanical or any other reason.
- We can clear the change with the tour operator and gain special approval for the change.
2. CANCELLATION AND REFUND POLICY
100% Refund: Cancellations Per our No-Port No-Pay Policy, Weather Policy, and COVID-19 policy below.

3. NO PORT, NO PAY POLICY (CRUISE PASSENGERS ONLY)
If during your sailing, your cruise ship is not able to make port as scheduled due to weather conditions, mechanical failure, or other unforeseen circumstances, we will cheerfully issue you a 100% refund of your money.
If an itinerary change is announced in advance of your sailing, while you still can reschedule your cruise, we offer you two convenient options.
- We will issue you a voucher valid for 1 year that you can use to reschedule your tour with us free of charge.
- Receive a refund in accordance with our cancellation policy above.
This policy offers you peace of mind that you will not lose your money if your ship’s port of call is cancelled. There is no risk to book with us!
Exceptions: For Dolphin Swims, tours by Grupo Xcaret and Theme Parks, if your ship does not make port you will receive a voucher valid for 1 year that you can use to reschedule your tour with us free of charge.
4. COVID-19 POLICY
If you are unable to attend your tour due to you or another member of your group testing positive for COVID-19, or your trip is cancelled due to travel restrictions imposed by your area due to COVID-19, or you are otherwise unable to attend your tour due to any health emergency or quarantine requirement due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you have the opportunity to reschedule for free, or if not possible then you will receive a full refund. You will need to provide proof of the reason such as a doctor’s note, or medical evaluation upon which you will be able to receive a full refund. If no proof is available, then our normal cancellation policy applies.
5. BAD WEATHER POLICY
Most tours in Mexico run rain or shine. This is the tropics, so it can rain a little bit on any given day, so if they had a no rain policy, there would be no tour operators in Mexico. However, if it does rain, it is normally just for 15 minutes of nice, warm rain (feels good in the summer months!), then back to bright sunshine. Nothing to worry about.
If it rains on the day of your tour and the tour operator cancels the tour, of course, you are entitled to either reschedule for another day or a 100% refund, your choice. However, if the tour still runs, rain or shine, then our cancellation policy as stated above applies. Confirmed reschedules are treated as new reservations and are subject to all the terms and conditions herein including cancellation policies. No refunds are available for seasickness, so please take the advised precautions just in case.
6. TOUR OPERATOR DISCRETION
For the well-being of all guests, you may not be allowed on the tour if you:
- Show signs of intoxication
- Show signs of infectious disease
- Are pregnant or do not meet the height or weight requirements for the tour
- Are unruly or otherwise disrupt the enjoyment of the other participants
