Bella Aventura designs custom-made itineraries upon request according to clients’ needs and wishes, travelling time, budget, and number of participants. Once clients agree with the final itinerary, Bella Aventura starts the reservation process with hotels, tour operators, transportation companies and other service providers. Bella Aventura always seeks to maintain the original itinerary, but due to availability it might occur that properties have to be replaced by similar ones. This especially applies during the peak-season months of December and January, and the Easter week. We recommend booking around 6 months in advance in order to guarantee your itineray of choice.

Bella Aventura is a certified and authorized tour operator. We make arrangements with hotels, tour operators, transportation companies, airlines, and other independent parties to provide you with the travel services you purchase. These parties are independent suppliers over whom we have no direct control. We are responsible to you for all services and accommodations offered which are under the direct control of Bella Aventura Costa Rica.

However, in the absence of negligence on our part we are not responsible for any claims, losses, damages, costs, or expenses arising out of injury, accident or death; damage or delay of baggage or other property; or delay, arising from (1) the act or omission of any party other than Bella Aventura or its employees; (2) mechanical breakdown, government actions, weather or other factors beyond our control; (3) failure to obtain documents, passports, visas and health certificates valid through the date of entry, when required, in which case a cancellation charge will be assessed; (4) failure to follow instructions including but not limited to check-in and check-out times and baggage handling; (5) cancellation or change for any reason in travel services offered; and (6) medical or health problems or physical disabilities.

Any changes made to the itinerary by the passenger once the trip has commenced are the sole responsibility of the passenger. No refunds for unused services!
