FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

In case you're wondering...

What are the groups like?

Your group will be epic. People joining our trips want to socialize and bond with like-minded people that share the same hobby.

Think about it. Not everyone thinks that going surfing in Nicaragua with a bunch of strangers sounds like fun. So if you do, this is probably your place.

Expect to meet a lot of open-minded people and creatures that know how to have fun just like you. So let your hair go, and leave your pre-judgments and bad vibes behind. Go with the flow, you won't regret it.

Can I join the trip on my own?

Yes, and we strongly suggest you do.

More than 90% of our travelers come on their own and we think it's the best way to live a life-changing experience and bond with new friends from all over the world.

Everything about our experiences is designed to make people bond and socialize so you have nothing to worry about.

How many people are on each trip?

We believe in the magic of around 5 to 10 individuals for optimal social interaction.

We strive to maintain group sizes around this number to ensure genuine connections. Too large or too small groups don't offer the same bonding opportunities.

What's the typical age range?

Our trips are designed to bring together anyone looking to leave their town for a bit and see the world.

Most of our travelers are between their mid-20s to mid-30s but we've had people joining from all walks of life.

Is it possible to leave a trip early or join late?

While we generally advise against leaving a trip early or joining late due to potential organizational challenges and extra fees, we understand that unique circumstances arise.

We evaluate such requests on a case-by-case basis to determine feasibility.

Do you assist with visas?

We do not handle visa arrangements.

However, we're more than happy to help you gather information about visa requirements related to your nationality for your chosen destination, ensuring you have a clear picture of what's needed.

What about immigration forms?

Completing immigration forms upon arrival at your destination is your responsibility. Rest assured, we provide guidance and assistance to ensure you navigate this process smoothly.

What kind of people join your trips?

Our trips attract a diverse and like-minded group of individuals. While the majority of our travelers are typically young professionals in their 20s and 30s, we've seen participants who don't fit this category seamlessly blend into the group and have a fantastic time. So, don't hesitate to join, regardless of how well you fit the description.

What's the difference between early bird and late tickets?

The main difference is in the price. Booking early often allows you to take advantage of special discounts compared to last-minute bookings. Early bird discounts may vary depending on the specific trip.

Let's keep it real – life's full of surprises, even when you're on vacation.

Trips are awesome, but watch out for stuff like sneaky monkeys and lost bags – they can happen.

We really think it's smart for you to get travel insurance when you travel with us. A good insurance should cover your whole trip and meet the basic levels we talk about below.

A good insurance includes trip interruption, trip delay, emergency evacuation/repatriation, and medical expenses, whether it's a regular illness or tied to some pandemic.

Here's what we suggest for coverage:

  • Trip Interruption: The cost of your trip (not including flights)
  • Trip Delay: $150 per day, $750 total per person
  • Emergency Evacuation/Repatriation: $100,000 per person
  • Medical Expenses: $25,000 per person
