Payment, Deposit and Cancellation:
It is the Customer’s responsibility to check your reservation and ensure that the particulars contained therein are correct.
The Customer shall pay Caya Shobo a non-refundable, non-transferable deposit in the sum of 40% of the total amount due for each person named in the reservation. Caya Shobo accepts Visa, MasterCard and American Express via online payment, or international bank transfer or by bitcoin.
The balance of monies due shall be paid by the Customer to Caya Shobo not less than 6 weeks prior to the commencement of reservation. Bookings within the last 6 weeks prior to the commencement of reservation must be paid in full at time of booking.
If payment of either the deposit or the balance is not received by the due date Caya Shobo reserves the right to cancel the reservation and retain the deposit.
In the event of cancellation by the Customer, regardless of circumstances, the following refund fees will apply, minus 6% of amount already paid and a $40 cancellation fee. Only a portion of received payments are eligible to be refunded according to the time the cancellation request is received (relative to scheduled arrival date), as detailed below. Percentages listed here refer to % of total amount payable including any deposit already paid plus outstanding amounts due but not yet paid:
• Cancellation 6 weeks or less before scheduled arrival date, 0% refund
• Cancellation 6 weeks to 2 months before scheduled arrival date, 60% refund
• Cancellation more than 2 months before scheduled arrival date, 100% refund
In the event of cancellation by the Customer due to travel restrictions associated with Covid-19, the Customer may elect to either receive a refund according to the repayment terms described in the previous paragraph, or as long as you have documentary proof of the travel restriction changes we will transfer your credit to another retreat that starts within 12 months of your originally scheduled arrival date, subject to availability. Please note that when applying your credit to a future retreat date this shall be subject to any recent price changes to Caya Shobo’s general program offerings. Beyond the aforementioned 12 month cutoff date, any and all credit from the original booking will become fully non-refundable and will be no longer usable as credit towards a future stay. Please note, this type of Covid-19 cancellation will require documentary proof of travel restriction changes.
Caya Shobo is not held liable for flight costs. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have all relevant travel documentation and you arrive at the airport in time. Caya Shobo is not responsible if you lack the required documentation for your flight or for entry into another country (valid passport for the entire duration of your stay and return travel, visa, entry fee, etc.). If you are unsure of your requirements and need assistance, you are welcome to contact us.
Caya Shobo accepts no responsibility for delay or cancellation of any flights, train, buses or other forms of transport. We strongly recommend that all Customers have adequate travel, cancellation and medical insurance for the duration of their trip.
Caya Shobo reserves the right to offer discretionary discounts and this does not affect the status of any guests who have paid the full price and no discount will then become due to them. In the event you decide to downgrade your accommodation after payment has been made, you will not be entitled to any refund. If you wish to upgrade, the new price will apply.
Caya Shobo reserves the right to cancel any retreat at any time for any reason determined at our sole discretion, including too few participants, or if the quality of the retreat or the safety of the participants is deemed by Caya Shobo to be compromised. In such a case, refund of payments received from reservations shall constitute full and final settlement and release of all claims against us. In the event of cancellation, Caya Shobo is not responsible for any loss incurred due to nonrefundable or non-transferable air tickets or other unrecoverable travel costs.
In the event that Caya Shobo must cancel or re-schedule retreats due to travel restrictions introduced by the Peruvian government, all Customer pre-payments will be transferred to credit notes for future stays. Note that in the event of re-scheduling of retreats due to travel restrictions, Caya Shobo reserves the right to modify or cancel any discounts offered in the Customer’s original reservation, in which case the Customer will be required to pay the full original price to be eligible to attend a re-scheduled retreat.
Room configurations are set prior to arrival on a first-come, first-served basis. You may request to share a room with a friend and one will be granted if still available. If your friend cancels, we will do our best to pair you with a compatible roommate. If you plan to book shared room accommodations, it is best to book and pay for both parties at time of booking.
