RESERVING, GUARANTEEING AND METHODS OF PAYMENT
|RESERVING TOURS: You may reserve your tour by Email, specifying which tours, dates and the number of Adults and Children that are to be on the tours you want. Your hotel would be good to know also. To assure the dates and space for your reservation we usually require a $50/person deposit for full day tours or full payment if you prefer be paid. With just an email we will hold your reservation for a reasonable amount of time that it takes for you to pay your deposit as guarantee.|
|RESERVING HOTELS or CARS etc: Depending on the Hotel or Rental Car company and on the season, this usually only requires a credit card in your name as guarantee against late cancellations or "no-shows". In some cases deposits or full payments by card or other means are sometimes required. As long standing tour operators we are able to temporarily reserve hotels, cars and tours operated by others, until you are able to comply with the hotel's or car rental's required guarantee conditions.|
|GUARANTEEING TOURS: To guarantee your tour reservation with us, we usually require a deposit for 50% of the total tour price or sometimes only $50/person. Payment of the deposit is accepted with Credit Cards via the PayPal button on this page. You may pay the balance due in Cash US$ on the day of the tour, but payment of the balance with a credit or debit card must be done on-line via PayPal on our website, on this page or other pages with 'Pay Now' buttons before the tour date as we don't accept credit or debit cards during the tour. We do not accept bank checks or Traveler's Cheques of any kind. If you want to use your Credit/Debit Card to pay the balance, you must pay it here on-line for which we recommend you do it prior to your departure from home, or pay in cash US$ on the (first) day of your tour(s). During tourism's high seasons of December through April and from July through the first weekend of September, full payment may be required 30 days prior to your tour dates. You will be advised of this requirement before a deposit is accepted.|

CREDIT CARD INSTRUCTONS:
Credit/Debit Cards are accepted for paying the deposit, for the total price of the tour or for the balance (prior to the first tour date). Click on the "PAY NOW" Button Above or Below. A secure PayPal connection will be provided that should show our name as "Paradise Tours" on top left corner of PayPal's payment page and under Merchant information it should show the email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
But in email links throughout our website we also use other valid email addresses such as; email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org etc so with other email links in the website do not think it has to be the same as with our PayPal payment email address.
Currently you cannot indicate Quantities which is fixed at 1 (Tour payment), nor add other information about your payment on our PayPal payment page. Until we solve that problem, please just input the Total Amount of your payment in the "Price per Item" box.
You will receive a payment confirmation from PayPal on our behalf.
After you make your payment you will immediately receive from PayPal, on our behalf, an automated reply generated by PayPal confirming your payment. We will also send you a thank you note confirming your payment directly from us.
We accept Cash US$ as final payment of the tour's balance once you are in Costa Rica. We do not accept Traveler's Cheques because they are awkward to cash here. Final Payment by credit card of a balance due is possible only on-line prior to your tour.
