General conditions


To secure your reservation, we typically request a 50% deposit unless noted otherwise. Upon your inquiry, reservations will be held up to 24 hours pending receipt of deposit. If we have not received payment or any communication within that time, CASAS del CARIBE may consider your reservation cancelled and the dates will be available for other guests.

CASAS del CARIBE accepts Paypal, Credit Cards, and Bank Transfers for payment. Within Costa Rica, we recommend money transfers using BNCR, BCR or BAC free of charge. You will need to authorize a payment of 50% of the total anticipated rental charges. Once we receive a copy of the payment and it is registered on our account, you will receive confirmation via email.


The balance payment is due at least 5 days prior to check-in. If the balance is not paid on time, your reservation may be cancelled. We will not accept any check-ins unless the balance and security deposits have been paid in full at least 5 days prior to check-in. We reserve the right to treat the booking as canceled if the balance(s) is not paid on time.


A minimum security deposit of $200.00 (or up to $500.00 for premium properties) is required at least 5 days prior to check-in by PayPal or bank transfer. No cash will be accepted.

Please report any damage to the property or any missing items immediately. If the unit is found in an appropriate order following your departure, the full value of the security deposit will be refunded within 5 days of check-out. In all other cases, the cost of any damages or missing items will be deducted from the security deposit before refunding the remaining balance.


If you find it necessary to cancel your reservation, we charge a $50 cancellation fee. We will refund the balance of your deposit, and any banking fees, within 2 weeks of your request.

If you cancel within 60 days of your reservation date, we will refund 50% of your total balance.
