We had a planned trip to Costa Rica in late March of 2020 that had to be cancelled due to the global pandemic. We cancelled our trip and were assured we would be provided a refund. The company has been very responsive to email inquiries, but no refund more than 40 days after

Hi David! Thank you for reaching out to us regarding your refund for your services cancelled due to COVID-19. Refunds to our clients were processed in late March with the bank however due to high volume of cancellations and refunds the processing bank has been overwhelmed and we have seen significant delays in refunds. Refund processing in Costa Rica has to be done directly with the bank. We have been checking status almost daily with the bank in regards to our clients refunds and it appears to be moving a bit more this past week when we received notice of several approvals. We will email you directly with the information of the ID of your refund request provided by the bank to ensure you receive your money for your cancellation. Customer satisfaction is our highest priority and we want to ensure that we give you accurate information in regards to your specific case. We appreciate your understanding and patience. Wave Team.

Well organised day, Canyoning was great fun and everything felt extremely safe with clear a fantastic advice from Jonathan. The rafting was an excellent adventure, with our excellent guide Augusto made it feel like we could take on any rapid in seconds of hitting the water.
