Mexico Adventure Retreat Terms & Conditions

Deposit Payments

A deposit of $315 per person, per trip is required to confirm a reservation. This may be paid with a Visa, MasterCard, American Express, PayPal or personal check. You may call to pay, pay online or mail a check. Along with payment, we require an information form as well.

Confirmation Package

When we receive your reservation and deposit, we will send you detailed information on what to bring, how to prepare for your trip, travel directions, detailed itinerary, trip cancellation insurance application, pre- and post-tour hotel information and company policies.

Balance Payments

The balance of the trip price is due 60 days prior to departure, payable by check or credit card. If you pay your deposit by credit card, we will assume that you would like your balance also paid by credit card and we will charge your card for the balance due 60 days prior to departure, unless you instruct us otherwise in writing. If the balance is not paid when due, Your Adventurous Life reserves the right to regard the reservation as canceled.

Cancellations & Refunds

If you must cancel your reservation for a tour and/or its extension, we will refund your deposit, less the following fees per tour and/or extension:

Days Prior to Trip Start DateTrip Cancellation Fee Per Person
61+ days$315
46-60 days50% of trip price
31-45 days75% of trip price
0-30 days100% of trip price


When you cancel a trip, we must ask you to notify us in writing. Exceptions to these policies cannot be made for any reason. We are also happy to assist you in transferring from one trip to another in the same calendar year up to 70 days prior to the trip date at no charge, after which our cancellation policy applies. If unforeseen circumstances require a change to the trip itinerary, Your Adventurous Life will make every effort to select alternative hotels of the same standard and to keep modifications to a minimum. Your Adventurous Life reserves the right to cancel a trip for any reason. In such an instance, we will refund all payments received, which will constitute full settlement.

Arrival and Departure

Each trip begins and ends in a town accessible by plane, train, boat or bus. Meeting and ending locations are listed on each of the individual trip pages in the catalog, as well as in your pre-departure information. For some tours, it may be preferable to arrive at the starting point the night prior to the trip departure date. We will be happy to provide you with instructions on how to phone or fax the hotels yourself, or to make these reservations for you. If you elect to have Your Adventurous Life make these reservations for you, the hotels require that we provide them with a credit card number to hold these reservations or, in rare occasions, to send them a check in advance of arrival. We will advise you of specific hotel payment policies.


Trip prices are based on two people per room. If you are traveling alone, we will assign you a roommate of the same gender, or you can choose to room alone, paying the single supplement of $600. There are a limited number of single rooms available on all trips.


We strongly recommend you purchase trip insurance to cover any form of trip interruption due to health, family emergencies, weather cancellations and disruptions, and more. Please look into options like Travel Guard or other insurance companies.
