Hello, we are planning a trip to CR July 1st thru July 6th. We are worried about the weather. However, we would like to book some of your tours. My question is if we book a tour on a certain day & the weather is bad can we reschedule to another date or do we get our money refunded. The other question is we are interested in the baldi springs & the Arenal hot springs. What is the difference? Thank you
