Ecotour Terms & Conditions


Reservations are limited and on a first-come basis. To reserve a space on an ecotour, a $1,000 per person non-refundable deposit via check or credit card is required to secure your spot on the trip. Full payment is due by the date specified on your ecotour’s dedicated webpage (generally 60 days prior to the start of the tour). Failure to pay in full by that date may result in forfeiture of your deposit money and your space on the ecotour.

Ecotour Participant Agreement, Release and Acknowledgement of Risk

In order to take part on a SAVE THE FROGS! Ecotour, you will be required to sign a liability waiver acknowledging the inherent risks of ecotourism, and legally releasing SAVE THE FROGS! and affiliated trip operators and personnel from legal damages and consequences.

Cancellations and Refunds

You must notify us directly if you need to cancel your trip. If you need to cancel your trip, contact us immediately.

The amount of your refund is determined by the date that you notify SAVE THE FROGS! of your cancellation, and is stated on your ecotour’s dedicated webpage. SAVE THE FROGS! regrets that it cannot make exceptions to the reservation and cancellation policy for any reason, including personal emergencies. The reservation and cancellation policy applies to all reservations. We recommend you purchase travel insurance from a third party, so that if an issue arises (such as health or family concerns), then your travel insurance could likely provide you compensation.


Accommodations are based on double occupancy, unless otherwise indicated in the trip description. If you are a single traveler wishing to share accommodations, we will try to match you with a roommate. If you wish to have private accommodation, then you can upgrade for an additional fee if private accommodation is available.

Children On Ecotours

SAVE THE FROGS! Ecotours are adult-oriented, but SAVE THE FROGS! Ecotours are family friendly, depending on the child’s age and experience. Anyone under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Please contact us before sending a trip deposit for anyone under 18 years of age.


Looking for frogs at night is not the world’s safest activity. As such, drinking and frogging really don’t mix. We request that you not get anywhere remotely close to drunk prior to frogging. If you do feel the need for a dinnertime alcoholic beverage, we strongly suggest limiting it to one drink. Post-frogging, feel free to let loose at the bar.


We request you not pose, stage or capture any animals for photography purposes. Flash photography should be limited to reduce stress on the amphibians and other animals we encounter. Be mindful of other participants who may wish to also photograph the same animal.


No collecting of animals for scientific or other purposes is allowed.


No handling of snakes is permitted at any time. No capturing of snakes is permitted at any time.


You can buy local products to help improve the lives of local people, but please do not buy wildlife products such as fur, feathers, shells and leather.

Be Responsible, Polite and Respectful

Please abide by the instructions of the trip leader. Treat leaders, guides and hospitality staff with respect. Follow all local laws while on the ecotour.
