The Cancellation No-Show Policy should be chosen by each Company and Users can see them on the Tour / Activity page under Tour / Activity Details.

If booking is canceled by the company full refund of the booking fee is eligible by users in any moment, unless agreed to change the Tour or Activity to another day.
By booking a Tour or Activity with a Tour/Activity Company, User accepts and agrees to the relevant cancellation and no-show policy of that Tour / Activity Company. The general cancellation and no-show policy of each Tour/Activity Company is made available on our website on the Cancellation and No-Show policy page, during the reservation procedure and in the confirmation email.
Applicable fees will be charged by the Tour/Activity Company in the event of a no-show or cancellation and will be charged by Tamarindo Active from the debit/credit card User provided us. Then repassed to Tour/Activity Company.
Please note that Users may be charged for cancellation in accordance with the Tour / Activity Company cancellation and no-show policy and not be entitled to any repayment of any (pre)paid amount (Booking fee) . We recommend to read the cancellation, and no-show policy of the Tour/Activity company carefully prior to making a booking and remember to make further payments on time as may be required for the relevant booking. If User has a late or delayed arrival on the Tour or Activity date or not going to be able to show, the User must make sure to (timely/promptly) communicate this with the Tour/Activity Company so they can study the possibility of rearrangement avoiding cancellation of the Tour/Activity or charge of the no-show fee.
Payment of either booking fee, Cancellation and No-Show fees are safely processed from User´s credit/debit card or bank account through a third party payment processor. Tamarindo Active does not accept any liability or responsibility for the consequences of your delayed arrival or any cancellation or charged no-show fee by the Activity/Tour Company.
