    Buongiorno Due agenzie viaggi mi hanno detto che il tour operator inviaggi è fallito. Che questo villaggio non viene più venduto per il 2017. Io qui vedo solo recensioni positive e mi piacerebbe andarci questa estate..... Ma come fare ? Qualcuno mi sa dare una mano?

    Salve, noi saremo al Jumbo dal 23 marzo al 1 aprile. Vorrei dei chiarimenti sulle pratiche del visto. È vero che sono 40 euro all'arrivo e altrettanti alla partenza? Gli under 16 lo pagano? Ed è possibile pagarlo in Euro? O servono i dollari? Grazie anticipatamente

    Si pagano 40 euro per entrare e 52 per uscire! In totale 92 euro! Vanno bene anche i dollari basta averli in contanti no carta di credito! Pagano anche i bambini!
