Airport taxes, passport and visa fees are not included in a Yampu invoice. A valid passport is required for travel in the country of destination, and a visa may also be needed (American citizens always require a visa for Brazil). Your passport also needs to be valid at least 6 months after your return date from trip.

Vaccinations may also be required, especially if traveling to rural areas or the Amazon region. Please check with your local Center for Disease Control and Prevention. It is the sole responsibility of the traveler to make sure that he/she complies with all passport, visa and vaccination requirements.

Yampu Tours & Travel (DBA Yampu Tours) assumes no responsibility if client is refused boarding of a plane or entry into a country. Conditions are subject to change without notice. We reserve the right to vary itineraries or substitute hotels of similar standard if unforeseen circumstances beyond our control make these necessary.

Yampu requires a minimum deposit of 50% of the total tour cost plus the full cost of the international airfare unless more is required for the purchase of domestic airfare, cruises and special hotels. Balance will be due 90 days prior to departure. Non-payment of balance on due date may forfeit all amounts paid and may result in immediate cancellation of booking. Bookings made within 90 days of travel will require full payment upon confirmation of services. Charge will be made only after all services have been confirmed. If they are different that requested we will first obtain your approval before charging your card. Any changes or cancellations made more than 60 days prior to departure will result in the loss of $500 per person plus any penalties involved in the cancellation or change of the airline ticket, cruise or hotel. All airline tickets are issued immediately upon confirmation of services, and all deposits to cruises and hotels are also placed upon confirmation. Any changes or cancellations made within 60 days of departure, may result in the loss of the amount paid, and will be assessed on an individual basis. Cancellation of any trip that has been requested but not yet confirmed will also result in the loss of $500 per person.
