Based on group size, we may have multiple locations for accommodations. Guests can be assigned to different properties within proximity of each other. If you are traveling with others, and not under the same reservation, it is critical to advise the sales team of your desire to be booked into the same accommodations at the time of booking. If we are not aware of this, there is a possibility that you will not be booked into the same accommodation as your friends on a bucket list trip.

At Mocha Fest, we have a Single to Share program, whereby we pair up singles of the same sex, who are willing to share a room, to keep costs down. We guarantee two separate beds with this program. Many have found long-term travel buddies and made great friendships from this program.
You can expect to explore your bucket list destination with excursions such as landmarks, site seeing tours, ATV adventures, etc. The event itinerary will indicate the ones included & the ones that are optional and incur a separate cost

The standard check-in time for almost all Hotels and Villas is 3:00 pm. This allows for them to prepare the rooms if others have checked out the same day. If there is an early arrival, and the room is available, then only at the discretion of the hotel will you be able to check-in early. Mocha Fest has no control over this. Please plan accordingly if you arrive early to a destination with a change of clothes in your handbag to be comfortable.
11:00 am is the standard time to check out, in the event of a late flight, the hotel or villa will do their best to offer late checkout, if requested, by an hour extension, for example, again this is at the sole discretion of the hotel/villa, and not in control of Mocha Fest.

When planning how much money to bring, we suggest that you consider such things as spending money for meals that are not included e.g lunches, dinners and beverages, alcoholic drinks. Souvenir shopping, and tipping. Also, any Optional Experiences/sightseeing trips that you may wish to experience, over and above the Mocha Fest itinerary.When planning to use a credit card and debit card, we recommend that you notify your bank and credit card company before your departure to provide them with travel information to avoid embarrassing fraud alerts. This will ensure that your provider will not deny payment because they think the transaction could be fraudulent.
Baggage allowances vary from airline to airline, and you should check with your chosen carrier for details before travel. However, most of our Bucket List itineraries have remote locations, or travel in-between, for this reason, we highly recommend you consolidate your items and travel with a rolling carry-on and a backpack whenever possible. Destinations such as Greece where we move around from Island to Island via ferries, packing light is essential.
Electrical plugs and outlets differ throughout the world. We recommend bringing a universal travel adaptor thats suitable for the country you are traveling to.
Ladies, please note that we recommend only wedges if you love wearing heels! Many locations have cobblestone walkways or wood planks etc. A variety of sandals is most recommended
We encourage all guests to advise us about any specific dietary needs that they may have (vegetarian, diabetic, gluten-free, etc.) and we will strive to accommodate these, especially if your stay is at a Villa.

At Mocha Fest, we take pride in bringing our guests to new parts of the world, where we get to help support a local economy. We want to make sure our impact on that destination is a positive one for all and Mocha Fest guests are welcomed back with open arms. We ask that our guests enjoy the different cultures without judgment. Celebrate the beauty in all the differences. Respect public property, including our hotel and villa partners by not purposefully being reckless and causing damage or mischief. We also highly encourage tipping. A little goes a long way. Having a good stack of 1.00 bills comes in very handy. Tipping your concierge at the end of your trip is also a kind gesture.
Any bedding preferences are communicated with the hotels that we accommodate our guests at and are not guaranteed/subject to availability at time of hotel check-in.In the case of triple occupancy, most hotels do not offer 3 separate beds, therefore the probability of being accommodated in 2 beds is 99% where two persons would be required to share the same bed.Cot or rollaway beds are not guaranteed and also subject to availability of the respective hotel.Bare in mind that in some countries, beds and rooms can be a lot smaller than in North America and uncommon to see a Queen or King bed being offered
