RECOMMENDED FOR CULTURAL ACTIVITIES: Because the physical demands of these tours are not extreme, we recommend purchasing travel insurance that includes medical coverage for cancellations and delays.

MANDATORY FOR ADVENTURE ACTIVITIES: Aware of the implications of the different routes (weather conditions, physical demands, adaptation to geography, and others) we require the purchase of travel insurance on a mandatory basis, the same one that offers medical coverage, evacuations, cancellations, delays and others.

Additionally, for people who suffer from pre-existing diseases (hypertension and other cardiovascular diseases, locomotor system problems, diabetes, asthma, a history of altitude sickness, people who suffer from acrophobia or fear of heights and others) they must come with an evaluation. from their place of origin and with the pertinent medication.

Remember that both medicine and insurance are preventive.
