Natural Disasters – Climate Limitations & Late Arrivals

What happens when my flight is cancelled or postponed due to climate conditions?  Over the years we have had many scenarios, where climate conditions (snowstorm, hurricanes, or other situations) cause for airlines to postpone flight departures? If this were to occur, you will maintain your reservation with us, however, the arrival date stated in your contract will not have the right to extend or modify stipulated departure date, Nor will be entitled to a refund for the nights not used.

What happens with my booking when the airport has been closed in Puerto Vallarta due to hurricane alerts, climate conditions or natural disasters and in my city all is well? 

The decisions taken by government or private institutions (Airports-Airlines) that cause delays in your arrival will not be motive to hold us liable for any inconvenience, nor hold us accountable for expenses off lost nights & flights modifications incurred. You will have no right to claim tender of possession,   for whatever reason of this type caused your late arrival, since they are situations beyond our reach. There will be no reason to request, reimbursement, cancellation, replacement of lost dates or special considerations.

What happens if I can’t fly and my reservation has expired?

** If any considerations on our behalf were to be applied, this will only be with an approved authorization from the owner of the unit you have booked, and since the criteria from owner to owner is always different, this is not a guarantee of favoring your inconveniences, but it’s always an option we could look into, we are always in best disposition of helping all of our clients.

(Most common scenario is owners will credit nights lost for next stay in the same unit).* If this applies it carries its own conditions, for more details about this, ask your reservations agent what these are.
