IN A FEW WORDS
Compared to it's neighboring countries, Guatemala has gone relatively unnoticed to the average traveler. Because of that, prices have remained low and the authenticity of the country has remained strong. Let yourself drift away into the local lifestyle as you explore unchanged Mayan villages only accessible by boat, meander along cobblestone roads in ancient colonial cities, trek to the top of active volcanoes and into the dense jungle and soak in the azul waters seeping from the mountains. The Guatemala Sampler trip is perfect for someone that is looking for an authentic cultural experience with a few outdoor activities intertwined!

I would recommend BTM for any trip you and your friends want to go on, or to any organization interested in planning a trip... especially if you are interested in "getting out there" and not just stopping at the common tourist spots everyone goes to.
This was hands-down one of the the most exciting, rewarding, and memorable trips I've ever been on! The peace of mind to know that I didn't have to worry about anything was worth every penny. All I had to do was show up. Cody and Lystina took it from there. No stress, no anxiety, no rushing around or wasting time trying to find an activity or a place to eat. I got to sit back, relax, and experience a whole new world that was far beyond my map.
Since I've been back I have recommended these trips to so many people because this company creates these remarkable journeys that allow people to experience the world in a unique way. I can't wait to go on my next expedition with Beyond the Map!
