Nothing can ruin a special trip more than getting injured or having to cancel your travel plans - except if you don't have any travel insurance. If anything goes wrong, you want to be covered - travel insurance is a mandatory requirement for our tours.
Safety is our number one priority on each and every trip. However, the destination in which we operate has limited medical facilities and is an island off the coast of a third world country. Although we don't anticipate a medical emergency, travel insurance with medical and emergency evacuation coverage is required, while cancellation insurance is highly recommended.
