We'll honor a full refund in the event that we are forced to cancel a tour for any reason out of our control.

Notice to our cruise ship guests
We're very conscious of cruise ship schedules and the limited time available for excursions, that's why we've planned all our excursions to fit your times in port.
In the years we have been in operation, none of our guests has ever missed their ship and we keep working hard to ensure it never happens. We reserve the right to cancel our operation if we consider we won't able to finish the excursion and return to Costa Maya in plenty of time before boarding time.
