Ever wanted to visit Costa Rica? Why not join us for a Guided Trip to this May to Saladero Lodge located in the middle of the PiedrasBlancas National Park in the Golfo Dulce in South West Costa Rica.
This is one of my favorite vacations that we can now share with you. The Piedras Blancas National Park is one of the last primary jungle rainforests on the planet. Saladero Lodge is surrounded on three sides by rainforest and by the gulf on the remaining side. There is no access by road, only by a 30-40 minute boat ride from Golfito or Purto Jimenez after a regional flight on Sansa or Nature airlines from San Jose.
Imagine you and a few close friends or family exploring the rainforest, kayaking, snorkeling, riding horseback, fishing and just relaxing in one of the most scenic places on earth. End each day with a spectacular sunset over Corcovado National Park on the Osa Penisula just acrosss the gulf. Over 300 different species of birds call this part of Costa Rica home, including scarlet Macaws, Toucans, and most mornings you are awakened by a orchestra of wildlife including the early rising Howler monkeys.
Trips sizes are limited to keep the setting intimate and relaxed. If you don't mind roughing it or you have a group of more than ten, there is a camping option for small groups that can accomodate more participants!
About the food....wow...Harvey, Susan and Pauline prepare the most incredible meals. Local Costa Rican fare with some International options from other parts of the world. Fresh fish, fruit from the farm and fresh veggies from the market, we are thrilled at the quality of everything about Saladero!
Included in this Jungle Adventure:
Jet Blue (nonstop to San Jose from Orlando)
A Day Away Inc. reserves the right to deny service to any patron deemed to be an impaired paddler for whatever reason. Your safety and the safety of the group are our highest priority.
Please understand that when a reservation is made with A Day Away, that it is a commitment for us to hold seats for you. We can (and often do) turn away others from that particular date (or trip). If you decide to cancel, it can be difficult for us to book someone else on that trip. With this in mind we must hold to the following policies:
**Included in your reservation is a deposit - For parties of 4 or less this is $3/person and for parties of 5 of more it is 5% of the trip total. THIS DEPOSIT IS NON-REFUNDABLE
In the event that you must cancel your reservation, you will be charged as follows:
1. Reservations cancelled 48 hours or more before a scheduled trip will receive a full refund less the deposit, no questions asked.
2. Reservations cancelled within 48 hours of tour departure will be charged full trip price.
3. Groups arriving at time of event with less than the number of participants originally booked will be charged for each no-show at full price.
4. Same day cancellations are charged 100% of total trip price.
5. Tours will wait for parties “running late” for 15 minutes beyond the published tour time. After that the tour will launch as scheduled and your card will be charged the full amount for that tour.
6. Cancellations will not be accepted via email. Please confirm your change in plans by phone. Email is unreliable.
Please Know: This is Florida, rain at your location DOES NOT mean rain at our launch site.
Please Know: We will not paddle in unsafe conditions.
Please Know: A Day Away makes the final decision on whether a trip cancels due to weather.
We attempt in all cases to determine prior to your tour launch if weather will impede your trip. However, there are rare occasions where we have launched and weather patterns change suddenly at which time we must return to shore.
In this case the following policies apply and each patron is responsible to contact the office to make arrangements.
~~Where tour is cancelled after we already launched the kayaks and must return to shore patrons can:
· Reschedule with a future trip
· Receive Gift Certificate for the full amount applicable to future trips
· Receive a 50% refund
~~Where tour is cancelled before we have launched the kayaks patrons can:
· Reschedule the same trip on a future date (at no cost)
· Cancel completely. Each patron is responsible to contact the office to make arrangements.
In the event you choose to cancel you will receive a full refund minus the non-refundable deposit that was included in your reservation. Schedule noted above**
A Day Away Inc. is not responsible for any reservation you fail to keep due to weather conditions, road hazards, vehicle breakdowns, personal agenda, or other unforeseen conditions that may hinder your participation in the tour as scheduled. We reserve the right to cancel or modify any trip due to circumstances beyond our control: water fluctuations, weather conditions, insufficient reservations or acts of God. In such cases, we cannot be responsible for paying any expenses you may have incurred other than to refund monies due to you for tour price.
There are no exceptions to these cancellation policies. (321) 268-2655
