Reservations & Payments: Online sign up must be accompanied by a deposit in the amount of $750 USD per person mailed by check to Project Por Amor LLC (called PPA hereafter) within two weeks of your online registration. Final Payment is due no later than July 1, 2021. Any pre- and post- trip arrangements not finalized by 75 days before travel, may result in an additional service fee. It is our policy to hold travel documents until full payment is received.
Cancellations/Refunds: For land arrangements, written cancellation received by Project Por Amor by June 1, 2021 will result in a full refund less the deposit of $750 per person. In the event of later cancellation by the participant, no refund will be made. No refund will be made for any part of this program in which you choose not to participate. PPA reserves the right to cancel this program at any time prior to departure if registration numbers prove insufficient or if it is deemed necessary; a full refund will be made to those persons registered at the time. See Covid-19 Refund.
Covid-19 Refund or Credit: For the duration of the Covid-19 pandemic, PPA will provide a FULL REFUND for all land arrangements paid to PPA by Traveler for any Tour that is cancelled due to Covid-19. If the Tour is not cancelled, PPA will provide a FULL CREDIT for all land arrangements to any individual Traveler who cancels 45 days before scheduled departure due to concerns about Covid-19 or who cancels fewer than 45 days before departure and provides PPA medical proof of Covid-19 infection of the Traveler or a person who lives in the same household as the Traveler. The FULL CREDIT will be provided for any subsequent PPA Tour. In lieu of a FULL CREDIT, the Traveler can elect to receive a FULL REFUND in cash, less an administrative fee of $350. These Refund and Credit terms apply only to cancellations due to Covid-19.
Escrow Protection: PPA will deposit all your payments directly into a separate client account. This means that such funds will be maintained separate and apart from our operating funds until approximately 60 days prior to departure when we are required to pay the costs of your trip.

Not Included: Passport fees, baggage fees, items of a personal nature, such as valet/laundry, phone/fax/Internet communications; items not on the regular menus, expenses of hotels outside of Cuba, meals, guides, buses, cars, railroads, boats, etc. for sightseeing not included in the itinerary; trip insurance; any other items not specifically included; after-tour gratuities to Cuban guide and motor coach driver.
Trip Prices: All prices provided are per person based on various room and bathroom sharing options. Triple room reductions will be provided, where applicable. All prices are based on rates as known at the time a reservation is accepted by PPA and expected to be in effect at the time of the commencement of services. These rates are subject to increase without notice if such rates change prior to the commencement of services. Additional expenses, if any, will be borne by the travelers. Substitution: Cuba is a country with a weak infrastructure and accommodations are subject to substitution if conditions change. Although we cannot categorically ensure that every accommodation will be available during our trip, we will work diligently to keep the service selections intact and/or ensure that any substitutes will be in the same category. Room Occupancy: PPA and LAPCA will make every effort to accommodate your single or double room or suite request. Room Conditions: PPA and LAPCA will work with the service provider to make every effort to ensure that your room is acceptable by US Standards. However, travelers must understand that all accommodations are unique and there will be many small differences between every room. Furthermore, we cannot be responsible for conditions that are occasionally caused by Cuba’s infrastructure breakdowns.
Insurance Information and Medical Evacuation: Health insurance in Cuba is provided as part of the program cost through the Cuban visitor’s health insurance agency Asistur. We also encourage each participant to purchase Trip Interruption/Cancellation insurance with a third-party provider such as Allianz or Travel Guard.
