We reserve the right to cancel a workshop, experience, or package due to inadequate registrations that make the trip economically unviable to operate or due to legitimate concerns for the safety, health, or well-being of the participants. In such cases, we closely follow and adhere to travel advisories issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
If a workshop, experience, or package is canceled before departure, you will have the option of a full refund or a credit for a future workshop, experience, or package with MAPU Chile, equivalent to the amount paid in USD currency.
If we cancel a trip in progress, you will receive a proportional refund based on the number of days remaining. We are not responsible for any refunds of airfares, hotel accommodations, etc., purchased by the participant from third parties.
In the event that the instructor contracted to lead an activity, experience, or workshop is unable to attend due to illness or other circumstances beyond our control, a substitute of the same standard will be provided. If that is not possible, the workshop, experience, or package will be canceled, and the above provisions will take effect.
In exceptional situations or force majeure (medical emergencies, natural disasters, or unforeseen circumstances that compromise the safety or basic comfort of guests), MAPU may proceed with the cancellation of one or more reservations. In these situations, the establishment may consider the possibility of refunding or rescheduling reservations.
Please note that MAPU is located in an area considered remote and extreme.

If the customer cancels their participation more than 48 hours before the scheduled date and time of the activity, there will be no refund of the deposit.
If the customer abandons the activity, without any incident, whether it is in progress or about to start, there will be no entitlement to a refund, and the total value of the service must be paid.
PROGRAMS, EXPERIENCES, AND ACTIVITIES
MAPU is a company that offers tourist accommodation, tourist packages, workshops, and various recreational activities at the request of the customer (external tourist services), therefore, each program is special and specifies what is included and what is not. The prices indicated are in the local currency or dollars, as applicable.
MAPU reserves the right to change, without prior notice, any of the activities to be carried out in order to ensure their smooth operation. If, for any reason, the customer is unable to participate in the activity, the company will refund 100% of the amount actually paid within a period of up to 15 days, without any further compensation.
Notwithstanding the above, the company shall not be held responsible for unforeseen events or force majeure, such as weather conditions, sudden illnesses, or natural events such as earthquakes, heavy rains, unusual hailstorms, etc.

However, the company will always ensure the faithful, complete, and punctual provision of services by the different providers.
As spaces for activities, packages, and workshops are limited, we encourage you to sign up in advance. Please contact us to check availability before registering for a package or workshop.
