Academic Commitment


Beyond the Map is the sister company to a 25-year-old informal environmental education company, Build-A-Field Trip. Opportunities to learn and grow as an individual are instilled in each and every one of our trip experiences!



Beyond the Map supports experiential learning. We believe the best lessons learned and opportunities to grow occur when exploring the world around us. Our curriculum based itineraries allow us to customize the curriculum so that you may accomplish the lessons of the classroom while under the canopy of the rainforest.    


The environment and natural world is the fuel that ignites Beyond the Map. It is our duty to conserve these amazing landscapes that drive us to learn and explore. Our founders began as marine biologists and strive to be environmentally sustainable every step of the way. 

Active Traveling 

Connecting our guests with the world around them is our number one priority. We believe that traveling should be an active pursuit, where you are both physically and mentally intertwined with your new and unfamiliar surroundings. This is when personal growth occurs and experiences are remembered.   

Immerse Yourself

Planning a quality experience for yourself can be challenging, let alone a group! Our trips are all-inclusive, so allow us to take care of the details so that the students can be fully immersed in their surroundings without being distracted.

Risk management


Adventure does not translate into risk. Our team has decades of experience to mitigate dangerous or unwanted scenarios. From lost passports to complex, unplanned emergencies, our team is prepared and ready for the task at hand. What's most dangerous you ask? An unlived life!

What is adventure 3d 

Adventure 3D stems from the belief that travel and outdoor activities are more meaningful when approached as a multi-dimensional experience. Our adventure travel trips aim to offer more than a vacation but rather a transformative, life-changing experience.
