TERMS OF SERVICE

The scope of services is detailed on our website. However, we reserve the right to change the itinerary due to unforeseen circumstances such as severe weather, national emergency, changes in the behavior of the animals, etc.

If for any reason your arrival time must change due to unforeseen circumstances, please contact us as soon as possible. We will work with you to provide an alternative time for the visit. If you prefer to cancel, you may lose your payment.

Full payment is expected 30 days prior to arrival.

Once full payment has been made, we strongly recommend that you purchase travel insurance to cover emergency situations. Therefore, if you need to cancel your reservation, you must first file a claim with the insurance company.

PRICE INCREASE

TRAVEL INSURANCE

We strongly recommend that you purchase travel insurance. A good policy should include reimbursement of travel fares for personal illness (including Covid-19), natural disasters and/or political instability. We strongly recommend that you also purchase a health policy that includes medical coverage in Ecuador AND emergency evacuation. Although Refugio Paz de Las Aves is located a short distance from Quito, emergency medical care is limited in our region. If you need to be evacuated, you will be responsible for all costs.
