Salsa Retreat has had the pleasure of welcoming women and men of all ages from around the world!

All group retreats in Cuba feature our complete Salsa, music (percussion) & cultural program which has been designed to be enjoyed by guests of all ages and abilities.

Cuba: In accordance with the restrictions imposed on travel to Cuba by the US government, our group retreat has been licensed based on the educational activities we offer on a full-time schedule during our trip. We are requesting that guests follow the outlined itinerary, but guests are strongly encouraged to learn at their own pace and take breaks as needed.

A non-refundable deposit of $600 is required to hold your reservation. The balance of the retreat cost is due and must be received by Salsa Retreat no later than 30-days prior to the “Departure Date” for your retreat. Payment can be made by check, or with VISA, Mastercard, American Express or Discover using our secure online payment option with PayPal. Prices do not include airfare. You do not need to have your flight booked in order to put a deposit down. However, please confirm tour availability with us prior to booking your flights. After full payment is received we will send you a packet of information outlining what to bring and additional information to prepare you for your visit to Cuba.

Cancellations by You

Salsa Retreat works with quality vendors, instructors, and guides to provide you with a unique retreat. In order to best serve all our guests and provide high quality services Salsa Retreat has a firm cancellation policy. There are no exceptions to this policy. We strongly encourage and recommend that you obtain trip interruption/cancellation insurance to protect yourself in the event that you must cancel your retreat for any reason. This insurance can be purchased from various travel insurance companies, including World Nomads. You may cancel your reservation, in writing only, according to the following fee and refund schedule:

  • 31 days or more before Departure Date: FEE: $600USD REFUND: Full amount paid minus fee
  • 30 days or fewer before Departure Date: FEE: Full cost of the tour REFUND: None

Our Cuba retreats require a minimum of 10 (ten) participants. For this reason, and others, if you cancel your retreat within 30 days of the Departure Date, we must impose a cancellation fee of the full tour cost so that we can avoid cancelling the entire retreat for all other clients who have booked with us.

Cancellations by you that are not made in writing (email is acceptable) are not valid under these Terms and Conditions. There are no exceptions to our cancellation policy.

If you cancel thirty-one (31) days or more before the Departure Date, additional fees may apply. In addition to the fee stated above, any cancellation fees, surcharges, or nonrefundable deposits charged to Salsa Retreat by its suppliers, such as individual hotels, guides or other third parties, will be added to and part of the cancellation fee per person.

No partial refunds will be given for unused hotel rooms, meals, sightseeing trips, transportation services, or other segments or portions of your retreat for any reason whatsoever. The cost of the retreat is a package cost and refunds and credits are not available for services not used.

Cancellations by Salsa Retreat

We do our utmost to maintain our standard of never canceling a retreat, but we reserve the right to cancel a retreat if the minimum group size of 10 participants has not been reached 30 days before the Departure Date. However, we will not cancel a retreat on this basis if we have previously informed you that the retreat has reached the minimum requirement and you should purchase airline tickets.

In rare circumstances, events outside the control of Salsa Retreat may require that a retreat be cancelled. If we cancel a retreat, all deposits and payments made to date will be refunded in full.

In the event that we do not receive your payment of the final balance on the due date (at least 30 days prior to the departure date) and you have not otherwise notified us of your intent to cancel your reservation, we will cancel your reservation and refund any payment made less a $600 cancellation fee.

Because we strongly recommend that you obtain trip insurance and because you have notice of this cancellation policy, Salsa Retreat is not responsible for any additional personal travel expenses you may incur in connection with cancelled retreats including airline tickets.

Payment to Salsa Retreat indicates agreement with this cancellation policy.
