By making a booking through Tamarindo Vacations, you are entering into a contract directly with the Vendor and you will be subject to their terms and conditions. The delivery terms and conditions of a Vendor can be obtained with the relevant Vendor if requested, prior to a booking being confirmed or along with your booking confirmation. By confirming your booking you are accepting the Vendor’s terms and conditions and our terms and conditions.
Tamarindo Vacations shall not be liable for anything stated in the Vendor’s terms and conditions. Our Agreement with you sets out what your rights and obligations are when you book or reserve accommodations or fishing charters through us.
From the point at which you make your reservation, we act solely as an intermediary between you and the Vendor, transmitting the details of your reservation to the relevant Vendor and sending you a confirmation email for and on behalf of the vendor.

Upon submitting your reservation request you authorize Tamarindo Vacations to facilitate reservations on your behalf.
The price of the travel services will be as quoted on the Website, except in cases of obvious error. Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect bookings already accepted by our Vendors.
Cancellation by Vendors
As your contract is with the Vendor, the Vendor’s cancellation policy shall apply.
We do not accept any liability of whatever nature for the acts, omissions or default, whether negligent or otherwise, of those Vendors in connection with your travel pursuant to a contract between them and yourselves and over whom we have no direct control. We do not accept liability in contract or in tort (actionable wrong) for any injury, damage, loss, delay, additional expenses or inconvenience caused directly or indirectly by force or other events which are beyond our control, or which are not preventable by reasonable diligence on our part including, but not limited to war, civil disturbance, fire, floods, unusually severe weather, acts of God, acts of Government or of any other authorities, accidents to or failure of machinery or equipment or industrial action.
Please note that Vendors have the ultimate responsibility for the safety of the crew and the people onboard. In the event that the trip is no longer safe due to any reason, the Vendor has the right to cancel the whole or part of the trip (before or after departure).
If your booking has to be canceled prior to departure due to unsafe weather conditions, you shall have the choice of:
accept from Tamarindo Vacations a full refund of the deposit paid for the canceled service(s).
accept from Tamarindo Vacations a substitute service(s) of equivalent value, where such substitute is reasonably available; or
accept from Tamarindo Vacations a substitute service(s) of lower value if no service(s) of equivalent value is reasonably available, and to recover from Tamarindo Vacations the difference in deposit between the deposit of the tour originally purchased and that of the substitute one;
Tamarindo Vacations is not responsible for any incidental expenses or consequential losses that you may have incurred as a result of the canceled booking such as visas, vaccinations, non-refundable flights or rail, non-refundable car parking or other fees, loss of earnings, or loss of enjoyment, etc. Tamarindo Vacations reserves the right to issue a full refund in lieu of the choices above, in its sole discretion.
