Upcoming Trips to Brazil:
MARCH 21-28, 2020
Why Travel to Brazil?
This 8-day journey brings you from the buzzing streets of Rio de Janeiro and the colonial history of Paraty to tranquil beaches & fishing villages along pristine coastline, as well as tribal communities in the Atlantic Rainforest.
You will truly experience Brazil's diverse culture and natural splendors!
We will cap off our Brazilian adventure with two full days exploring the incredible Wonder of Nature that is Iguaçu Falls.
The panoramic views of over 200 waterfalls dropping powerfully off the jungle edge is only eclipsed by the up close & personal experience when you are soaked with the spray of the 'Devil's Throat'!
As we travel through Brazil's incredible destinations, you will island hop aboard a private boat, trek the coast, sample distinct flavors of traditional cuisine, learn about the complex history and vast array of cultural influences in Brazil, and stand in awe of nature's beauty again and again.

TERMS & CONDITIONS:
Please read the following before enrolling to any of our immersion trips.
A 10% non-refundable deposit is required for each traveler to secure the booking, referred to as "Booking Fee".
This Booking Fee is not an additional fee; therefore, it is only a portion of your total fee.
Payments can be made either by:
Option A) Submiting your 10% booking fee plus full payment of your remaining balance.
Option B) Submiting your 10% booking fee plus your remaining balance split in two different installments as follows:
10% initial Booking Fee: Required to reserve your seat in our immersion trip and begin your pre-course arrangements, as well as to send you further details.
50% of the remaining balance is due 30 days from initial booking and
the last balance is due 30 days prior to the start of trip.

Travel Insurance (Required):
Trip protection-style travel insurance that includes travel medical coverage is required for all trips with our partner company. The coverage must have a minimum $200,000 of medical coverage and include injury, medical, evacuation, and repatriation. Most domestic USA health insurance plans do not cover international travel claims or provide a global network of contracted doctors and facilities. We want to make sure you are covered in case of an emergency or non-emergency illness or injury while abroad. Trip protection coverage protects the investment of your trip, including benefits for items such as trip interruption, trip cancellation, delays, baggage and personal effects, and more. We do not have a required coverage amount, but typically coverage is based on your trip costs.
Wanderwell, a B-Corp Certified provider, can offer both Travel Medical and Trip Protection.
If you choose to purchase through Wanderwell, you can buy the trip protection directly from our partner page provided in your Welcome Pack, and a portion of your purchase will be donated to WeForest through 1% For the Planet to aid with carbon offset for your trip. With Wanderwell, the TripProtector Classic and TripProtector Preferred plans meet our minimum requirements for coverage. Once insurance is obtained, a copy must be sent to us.
Important: Failure to provide proof of insurance within 30 days of booking will result in trip booking suspension until proof of insurance has been provided.
Documents, Personal Identification, Vaccinations:
Every traveler is responsible for all required travel documents including passport, tourist visas, entry or exit fees, and vaccinations.
Please note that we do not cover the cost or assist in obtaining any of the above, and we reserve the right to collect information on all.
We can provide general information, but it is responsibility of every traveller to seek into his or her tourist visa, requirements and travel insurance and best flight schedule weeks in advance.
Every country presents different requirements, depending on citizenship. Be sure to research in advance which requirements are necessary for your country of citizenship.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
