What is your payment plan?

For 1 Week Trip:

$300 Non-refundable deposit to secure your spot, 50% of remaining balance is due 15 weeks prior to departure date, and final payment is due 70 days prior to departure date.

Does my package include airfare?

No, all of our packages are land-only packages.

Can you help me with booking my airfare?

Yes, we will do our best to help you book your flights.

What if I'm traveling alone?

Not to worry! We've had several people attend our trips on their own. You are welcome to have your own room for an additional fee or we can pair you up with another one of our travelers of the same sex. Once you book, we will call you to discuss your options further. 

What if I have dietary restrictions? 

For the most part that isn't a problem. We have been able to accommodate Vegetarian and Gluten-Free diets. 

Once I've placed my order, then what?

We will personally reach out to you to discuss our upcoming trip. We are here for you every step of the way. We will let you know what to pack, what to expect on the trip and answer any and all questions. If you are in the San Diego area we will plan a happy hour for everyone to get a chance to know each other a bit before we head to Oaxaca.
