Reservation Policy:


A deposit of  50% of the total price of your package is needed to secure a reservation.  

This amount is due within five days of confirming, via email or telephone, your intent to

The remaining  balance is due, without exception, THREE weeks prior to your scheduled arrival. Failure to pay the remaining balance on a timely basis will result in cancellation or postponement of the reservation. Please consult our refund policy for a description of rescheduling and refund protocols.


Refund Policy:

Tierra Chamahua EcoAdventures at Rancho Los Banos works diligently to ensure you have the vacation experience of your dreams. We also understand that it's possible to have an unexpected scheduling conflict, family or personal emergency.  We would like you to be aware of the following:


 Covid19 has altered our world and thus requires adaptation. Therefore, we are happy to reschedule your visit up to 2 years from the day of your notice of cancellation, with NO PENALTY to you. We have also now made possible reservation transfers to third parties or friends/relatives. For cancellations, please be aware of the following:


With 40 days or more notice, we will refund you 50% of your deposit .  The forfeited 50% can be credited toward a future visit, to be taken within 2 years of your notice of cancellation.


With less than 40 days notice but before 30 days of your visit, we will refund you  25% of the total amount already paid.  The forfeited 75% can be credited toward a future visit, to be taken within 2 years of your notice of cancellation.


With 30 days or less notice, your entire payment is non-refundable.  The forfeited amount can be credited toward a future visit, to be taken within 2 years of your notice of cancellation.


If you do not reschedule within the allotted time frame and opt to cancel, the forfeited amount cannot be returned.


There will be no refund for an altered visit once you arrive at the ranch.


There will be no refund for an early departure - whether your choice or ours.


Due to our seclusion, all attempts will be made, without guarantees, that we can get you out of the ranch. If we are able, you will be responsible for shuttle costs and transfer from Douglas to Tucson as our shuttle service is prearranged to comply with your original schedule. Changes made on short-notice are not possible.


We are a very small operation and last minute cancellations or changes can and will have a major

impact.We rely on your confirmed group numbers and oftentimes turn down other potential guests, especially during peak weeks. Therefore, final payments are not subject to deductions if group numbers decrease.But for our reliance on your booking, and total guest numbers and final rate, we would have certainly booked other guests.   We hope you understand and opt for rescheduling rather than canceling.  We

respectfully cannot make any exceptions.


If our rates change after you make a payment, and you opt to reschedule, amount paid will be used as a credit towards the new rate and you must pay the balance. You will not get the old rate.


We encourage you to purchase travel insurance.
