Terms and conditions

Ecole Travel specializes in the preparation of your vacation in Costa Rica.Ecole Travel acts as an agent designing your travel program and organizing it by reservation of the different services (transportation and/or accommodation and/or excursions and/or alimentation and/or tourleaders/guides).

Itinerary Design

Ecole Travel will upon request send a written proposal to the client. After the approval of this proposal by the client and his expressed willingness to start us reservations, Ecole Travel will make the corresponding reservations. Important is that that client knows that all services named in the proposal are subject to availability. In case that the itinerary must be changed and in the case that this change will modify the price of the package named in the proposal, Ecole Travel will inform the client and proceed with the bookings after approval of the client.


It is not possible to give a guarantee on availability of the services mentioned in the proposal, but it is always best to make reservations at least six months in advance especially if you plan your trip during high season (December-March and July-August).

Ecole Travel starts with making reservations after full payment has been received.


Payments are accepted by credit cards via our online booking system. Payments are also accepted by wire transfers to our bank account in Costa Rica. Ecole Travel will provide all the information if the client prefers to pay this way. In this case the client has to send a copy of the receipt by e-mail.
