Travel Protection

Travel Insurance for Additional Nights

**If you have any questions about the insurance please give Travel Insured a call at 1-800-243-3174. We (Yellow Umbrella Events) are not a licensed insurance company and can not legally answer any travel insurance-related questions.**

FYI, not purchasing travel insurance could result in the loss of your travel cost and/or require more money to correct the situation. Without insurance, there may be no way to recoup any losses, medical expenses, misc costs, or trip related expenses incurred and the price of Travel insurance IS NOT included in the price of the room selections and is non-refundable once purchased. 

Having travel insurance is important and we recommend it for everyone. We personally buy it for all of our trips. However, the option to purchase travel insurance is solely up to you and you may purchase it through any insurance company you would like.

Click here to purchase Travel Insurance

This website (Travel Insured) offers a very comprehensive policy called the “Worldwide Trip Protector” plan with optional add-ons like CFAR (Cancel For Any Reason), Optional Bed Rest which helps cover onsite quarantine expenses, and other add-on options. Travel Insured is the insurance company we personally use and suggest to others but you are welcome to purchase travel insurance through any entity that you choose. We use them on all of our travels and have been very happy with them. From other guests we have heard everything from it’s the best company ever and they covered everything to it’s the worst company ever. You will need to decide for yourself on how you proceed with travel insurance.

If you want the CFAR (Cancel for Any Reason) benefit you will have to add it to the policy and you must purchase the insurance no later than 21 days from the day you make your initial reservation. 

When you click on the link you will need to answer a few questions about your trip and then you’ll be redirected to a page with the policy information and pricing.

The basic “Worldwide Trip Protector” plan, which does not include the CFAR or Optional Bed Rest options, can be purchased at any time, including after 21 days from the time you paid your initial payment but it will not cover the Pre-Existing Condition Exclusion Waiver or the Bankruptcy/Default of an airline, cruise line, tour operator or other travel providers. However, you can still cancel for a covered reason and potentially get up to a 100% refund as long as it’s a covered reason.

Depending on what you select and the reason for canceling, travel insurance may cover between 75% – 100% of your trip cancellation and many other things like unexpected medical expenses, baggage, and flight delays.

We strongly suggest that you call them and verify what the policy covers if you have any questions. You can reach an insurance agent at 1-800-243-3174.

Cancellation Policy

If you choose to add additional nights to your reservation, all payments are 100% non-refundable unless they are canceled by September 21st, 2022. For this reason, we highly recommend purchasing travel insurance to protect your travel investment.

The resort does not allow any modifications after this date. If you’re waiting to make a reservation because you’re not sure if someone will be with you in the room, we suggest you go ahead and secure your reservation now and then add them later.

If you purchased travel insurance to cover your extra nights and need to cancel you will need to file a claim with your travel insurance company and could possibly be refunded the amount, according to the travel insurance guidelines, minus the cost of the insurance.

If you did not purchase travel insurance and you need to cancel you may still be responsible for the full amount of the room reservation based on the cancellation policy.

When do I need to make reservations for the parks, activities, or restaurants?

In order to make reservations for the parks, activities, or restaurants, you will need a confirmation number provided by the resort. However, the resort does not assign these confirmation numbers until about 30 days before you depart. Once we receive them from the resort we will send each guest an email with their confirmation number, along with instructions on how to make reservations directly with the resort.

No. Mexico has the same electrical outlets as we do in the U.S.

The guest in my room can’t make it. Can I switch them with someone else?

Yes. You can make name changes up to February 8th, 2023. Please send us an email with the name of the current guest to be removed along with the name (as it appears on their passport) of the new guest, their birthday, and their email address. Once we have this information we’ll make the adjustment.

This is a brunch event in a cave restaurant, with live music and entertainment throughout, multiple food stations, a live fresh tuna cutting show, and an overall buffet experience that rivals some of the best Las Vegas buffets! 

If you have a Sunday depature from the resort, before 1pm, we would recommend that you go to Mercado at Arte, since the Las Cuevas Sunday Brunch doesn’t open until 11am and you need about 2 hours or more to fully enjoy this experience.
