In the event that full payment is not received 45 days prior to the commencement of the YTT, we retain the right to cancel your reservation and allocate your spot to another participant. We will make every effort to prevent this situation by proactively contacting you before and on the day of the balance due date.

Strict Cancellation Policy

To cancel your YTT, please email vibeten.ytt@gmail.comPlease note that deposits are non-refundable, and after [date], final balances are also non-refundable. Our cancellation policy is firm and exceptions cannot be made for ANY reason, including but not limited to weather, terrorism, civil unrest, Zika virus, COVID, health issues, personal emergencies, or any other unforeseen circumstances. We do not offer refunds for late arrivals or early departures. To safeguard against such situations, we strongly recommend acquiring trip and cancellation insurance that can provide coverage for cancellations due to specific policy-covered reasons, such as severe weather or illness.

To clarify, there will be no refunds or discounts for late arrivals, early departures, flight cancellations, travel delays, illness, or COVID-related cancellations. If you choose to cancel your participation in a YTT for any reason before [date[, we are unable to refund your deposit, but we can refund the portion of the remaining payment you have made. We genuinely wish we could provide compensation for unexpected circumstances like injuries or family emergencies, but we have already incurred costs when reserving resorts. After [date], no refunds can be issued for any payments already made.

Transfer Policy

We do not allow for YTT reservations to be transferred for any reason.

YTT Cancellations

We retain the right to implement any necessary changes, including, but not limited to alterations in advertised excursions, transportation arrangements, and meal offerings. We are not liable for any expenses or damages incurred due to the cancellation of a YTT, which may include costs associated with preparation, airline tickets, travel documents, or other related expenses. You are not entitled to make additional claims or seek compensation for any injuries, losses, expenses, or damages (whether direct or consequential), nor for any loss of time or inconvenience that may arise from a YTT cancellation. This encompasses potential expenses like visa, passport, and vaccination charges, gear purchases, airport and airline taxes, and other associated costs.

In the rare instance that we must cancel a YTT due to adverse weather conditions, natural disasters, or political unrest, the possibility of a refund depends on our ability to secure a refund from the venue or tour operator we collaborate with. To safeguard against such risks, we strongly advise purchasing travel insurance.

Travel Documents

It’s not difficult for tourists to enter Panama, especially those coming on flights from North America or Australia. All foreign nationals need a passport that is valid for at least six months from the date of entry. Tourists must also be able to prove that they have at least US$500—a bank statement, travelers checks, or a credit card usually works. Finally, all travelers entering Panama must have a return or onward ticket out of the country. Citizens of the following countries only need a passport to enter Panama: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Singapore, Taiwan, and the United States. It is important to note, however, that this list can change. Check with your home embassy for the current requirements before traveling.

Travel Insurance

To safeguard against unexpected situations, the most effective approach is to invest in cancellation/interruption insurance. Travel insurance provides coverage in the event of:

  • You cancel your YTT reservation

  • The YTT is canceled due to natural disaster, weather, or not enough participants to run the program

  • Lost baggage or personal items

  • Medical bills and expenses associated with repatriation in case of illness or injury

ROOMMATES

YTT rates are individually priced, and accommodations are arranged for double, triple, or quadruple occupancy. In the event you reserve a shared room without specifying roommates (as is common), we will make every effort to pair you with a compatible roommate.
