Who is a Manini Traveler?

Those with a young and adventurous enthusiasm for life. Those who prefer to protect the planet we inhabit through ecologically and socially responsible tourism while they take in all the beauty the world has to offer.

Our trips vary in physical rigor depending on the location and the excursions included. We’ve included a rating system for each of our trips to clarify what sort of physical ability is required. If you’re unsure, please reach out to us and we’ll happily help you book a trip that is perfect for you!


You’ve got questions – we’ve got answers!

Yes! You may either register together or register separately.  Be sure to send us a note so that we can accommodate your partnership request when planning for lodging!


50% of the total cost of the trip will be due to reserve your spot on the tour. The remaining balance is due 30 days prior to the date of departure.  If booking within 30 days of departure, the full amount will be due upon booking.


Please complete the contact form on our website.  We will get back to you with the booking details.


Lodging (double rooms), planned activities, transportation to the activities, professional photography, and food where indicated are included in the trip fee. You are responsible for your flights, travel documents and visas, travel insurance, transportation to and from the airport, souvenirs, outside activities, beverages, and food when a meal is not indicated on the itinerary.  You may also choose to upgrade to a single room for an additional fee (subject to change depending on the lodging availability).


You are responsible for securing your own flights and travel insurance. You will also be responsible for knowing what vaccines and travel precautions there are for the specific destinations, although The Manini Experience will do our best to pass along current and pertinent information. You can find guidelines here:


Yes, travel insurance is a requirement to participate on all The Manini Experience trips. Travel insurance, especially when going out of the Unites States, has proven time and time again to be beneficial in regards to monetary reimbursement for expenses incurred from unexpected illnesses and injury, repatriation and even trip cancellation reimbursement.


Yes!  Should you wish to join a trip that is full, we will place you on a waitlist and contact you immediately should a spot open up.


There is an age limit of 21 years and older for these trips. There are many reasons why we have made this distinction, including safety and age appropriation.


Yes!  We are happy to help you plan your dream trip and can even join you on the trip to act as your organizer and/or photographer throughout the trip.  Please fill out our contact form for more information.


“We are responsible for the world in which we find ourselves, if only because we are the only sentient force which can change it.” -James Baldwin


We believe you can’t truly enjoy life without helping others enjoy life.  That’s why we provide at least one philanthropic opportunity on each of our trips.  Whether it’s cleaning beaches, working with rescue animals, building houses, or teaching children, we’re committed to giving back to the communities that welcome us with such open arms.  We also strive to run an ecologically responsible business, eliminating the use of paper products when possible, seeking accommodations that are environmentally conscious, and utilizing fuel efficient transportation when available.
