Subsequently, an initial itinerary draft will be provided to the customer.  If this itinerary is agreed upon, COSTA RICA GAY TRAVELS will proceed to make all pre-bookings. COSTA RICA GAY TRAVELS will inform the customer in case availability has changed in any of the proposed and approved properties/activities, and will suggest modifications when necessary.

5. Responsibility

COSTA RICA GAY TRAVELS (Health and Fitness Travel LTDA) acts only as an agent of the client concerning travel and does not assume responsibility for any circumstance beyond its direct control. COSTA RICA GAY TRAVELS will not reimburse those who, by their own decision, responsibility, or negligence, decide not to use any or any of the services included in their itinerary.


If there is a modification after the itinerary has been approved and paid, which implies an additional fee, the client must cover it. COSTA RICA GAY TRAVELS has the right to modify the original itinerary due to circumstances beyond its control and participants whose behavior is inconvenient for the development of the itinerary without compensation or reimbursement.

COSTA RICA GAY TRAVELS or its agents cannot accept any responsibility for losses or additional expenses due to delay or changes in schedules, theft, loss (or damage) of luggage or any item belonging to customers, sudden or chronic illness, personal health, injury, death, weather conditions, strikes, fires, explosions, earthquakes, floods, epidemics, trail conditions, river levels, road conditions, transportation delays, wars, accidents, change, or other "force majeure" causes. All these expenses will be borne by the customer.

Many of the tours/activities can be physically challenging. Each passenger must verify the classification of the level of difficulty sent within the itinerary proposal. It is the passenger's responsibility to judge the suitability of these travel activities according to their physical capabilities and to release COSTA RICA GAY TRAVELS from any liability.

COSTA RICA GAY TRAVELS requires that all customers be covered by adequate life, accident, medical insurance and extended stay coverage due to medical reasons and are financially responsible for such expenses. COSTA RICA GAY TRAVELS requires that participants who plan to operate a motor vehicle in Costa Rica must obtain liability and collision insurance that covers them in the country. Insurance can be obtained from the car rental agency and will be included in the car rental portion of the itinerary. COSTA RICA GAY TRAVELS recommends that all customers ensure their personal belongings for loss and theft. COSTA RICA GAY TRAVELS is not responsible for costs or losses resulting from such events.

6. Passport, visa and health regulations


Each customer must be in possession of a valid identity card - possibly with a visa - and is responsible to ensure compliance with passport, entry, vaccination, currency and customs regulations. This also applies to valid driving licenses. All costs, in particular the payment of rescission costs arising from non-compliance with these regulations, shall be borne by the customer.

7. Applicable Law and jurisdiction

Costa Rican law governs contractual and legal relationships between the traveler and COSTA RICA GAY TRAVELS. The place of jurisdiction for complaints of the traveler against the destination agency is San José, Costa Rica. If COSTA RICA GAY TRAVELS takes legal action against the traveler, the residence of the traveler shall be applicable.

8. Digital vouchers

We're not against printing. We're against wasting resources. We don't want to stop people printing. We simply think that sometimes, people, and not everyone, need reminding that wasting paper, ink and toner doesn't make economic or environmental sense.  Every day, people hit the print button without really considering why. Often it's because we're used to seeing things on paper and we have some irrational desire to hoard information "so we've got it to hand", but so often this spontaneous compulsion to print is unnecessary.

Once the customer has purchased and paid for any approved individual service or package, COSTA RICA GAY TRAVELS will send them digital vouchers which contain all information required about the service(s) to be provided.  Customers may keep them in their smartphone, tablet or laptop, to be presented at the hotel/activity to identify that it has been paid for and what is included in the service.  A copy of this voucher will be forwarded to the service provider as well.
