Ground Transportation

Transport and excursions are made in private vehicles with air conditioning except in those programs which by its nature is not possible and are Jeep 4x4 vehicles.


All programs include transportation between airports and hotels in air-conditioned vehicle without necessarily being assisted by local English speaking staff. Sometimes these transfers may be made by the vehicles of the hotels themselves.



To ensure the hotel spaces and rooms, reservations must be made at least one month in advance with all the possible specifications (type of room, customer name, number of beds, etc.) Cancellations must be made with three weeks in advance to apply the relevant cancellation fee.



If you include guides in your visit and program in Ecuador, they will be English-speaking. If you wish to have a guide that speaks a different language you must request in advance and extra charges may be applied.



Yoga Eco Lodge is not responsible for any loss or damage during travel or transportation.


Reservations and confirmations

Reservations must be conducted by email accompanying the same as many data as possible. Customer name (as presented in the passport), arrival and departure date, as well as type of beds.


To book rooms and other services a deposit of 30% of the total amount must be done unless certain supplier requests a different anticipated amount or percentage.  No reservation will be done until this deposit is not formalized. The rest of the payment will be done at least 45 days before the arrival date in Ecuador; otherwise we will consider that booking can be cancelled. Such cancellation will involve expenditure in the cancellation section of this clause.


Yoga Eco Lodge will send by email the confirmation no later than three days before the arrival of guests.


Cancellations and Refunds

In the event of cancellation by the client of a program or services previously engaged shall be paid as a penalty the following amounts:


A. 30% of the total amount if the cancellation occurs between 90 and 45 days before arrival.


B. 75% between 45 and 31 days before arrival.


C. 100% 30 days prior to arrival, no-shows or late arrivals.


These amounts will be deducted from the deposit paid and the customer will pay the cancellation costs if there was any (like non-refundable tickets or hotel services which would involve prepayments and no possibility of refund) and management costs.


Regardless of these penalties, Yoga Eco Lodge may require payment of managing costs and cancellation fees applied by tourism accredited suppliers through invoices (non-refundable reservations or deposits, visas costs, etc.).


In the case of reimbursement costs for international transfer will be paid by the customer.


When the cancellation causes that the group falls below the minimum number of people required, Yoga Eco Lodge may charge the client, the proportional share for the group costs of the program.


Once the program has commenced the no use or enjoyment of certain services previously contracted as excursions, therapies, consultations, meals or hotel nights, etc. are not refundable.


In the event that a cancellation causes the annulment of the contracted services that were subject to a minimum number of participants, the user is entitled the reimbursement of the total price or advance payments without being able to claim any other amount for compensation. Transfer expenditure if any will be assumed by the customer.


There is no obligation to indemnify under the following circumstances:


1. When the cancellation is due to that the number of people registered for the program is lower than required, and so it is notified by mail to the user before the deadline to do so reflected in the contract.


2. When the program is canceled, except in cases of overbooking, if it is for act of God, meaning such circumstances are beyond the party concerned, and abnormal consequences  that would have been unavoidable, despite having acted with due diligence.
