Changes to the trip or start date by travelers are considered on a case-by-case basis. We are happy to make changes if we do not incur additional charges from service providers; hotels, transport companies, etc.

Passports & visas

The traveler is required to have a passport valid for six months after the return from their trip (a general rule set by countries). Travelers holding a passport from a foreign country; green card, U.S. visa, or special-use passport are solely responsible for understanding the limitations imposed on their passport, green card, U.S. visa, or special-use passport regarding re-entry back into the United States. Espíritu Travel cannot be held liable for travelers who are refused service by the airline or entry into the country because of a restricted U.S. visa or passport or denial of a visa by the host government.
