If you have booked an Activity or Service, consult the service documents you will receive via email for important information and instructions. It is your responsibility to follow such instructions. You understand that discounted rates typically involve restrictions and that changing any aspect of my service arrangements, if permitted by the supplier, may result in the payment of additional money.
To confirm a reservation that includes flights and or accommodations, a non-refundable deposit is required. Your balance is not due until 60 days prior to departure. Cancellations 60+ days prior to departure are subject to a cancellation charge equal to the initial deposit amount or $100, whichever is greater, or forfeit of the non-refundable deposit. Cancellations less than 60 days prior to departure will not receive a refund unless a replacement is found and a $200 name change fee is paid. There will be no refunds for no-shows or cancellations received after departure. There is a $25 charge for returned checks.
You are responsible for coordinating with other Participants for their indicated occupancy. For example, if a Participant signs up for a Quad Occupancy package (four people per room) and one of the three other indicated roommates does not sign up or cancels, the remaining three Participants will be charged the current difference in price between the actual occupancy (Triple) and the intended or paid-for occupancy (Quad).
We recommend that you purchase Trip Cancellation insurance, which is not included with your travel package but may be purchased separately on this Website or from a third party. You represent that you have adequate primary medical insurance to cover any injury or damage to yourself while participating in Spirit of Jalisco sanctioned activities and understand that NHT relies upon this fact.

In the event of strikes, labor disputes, fires, riots, wars, rebellions, acts of terrorism, weather, acts of God or other circumstances beyond the control of NHT which causes the cancellation of the trip, NHT will refund the tour Participant all amounts paid to NHT less a $200 service fee, and NHT shall be relieved of all obligations and liability to Participant. Participants who jeopardize the welfare of themselves or others will be removed from the trip at their own expense and will not receive any refund.

In the unlikely event that any part of the trip, travel services or entertainment becomes unavailable prior to departure or during the course of the trip, NHT reserves the right to modify, replace or cancel such service.
If initial reservation is made less than 60 days prior to departure, or if final payment is not received by 60 days prior to departure, price will be subject to air and hotel availability. Flights selected by Participant are subject to change and are not confirmed until Participant's account is paid in full and Participant's flight is ticketed by the airline.
