Those experiences, friendships and memories are irreplaceable. The BTM and international guides are there not just for information, but are real people who care and become your friends.
Beyond the Map is one of the best travel experiences I have ever had, if not THE BEST EXPERIENCE I have ever had! I loved every minute of it. The local partners and BTM leaders made us feel safe, encouraged us to explore and step outside our comfort zones and facilitated a friendly environment for everyone to get to know each other. The coordination of the trip (food, travel, lodging, adventures) was flawless! 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. BTM plans a truly unique experience. I will forever remember and cherish my time in Costa Rica and the friendships I made while there. Thank you Beyond the Map, I'll definitely be back!!
This Beyond the Map Costa Rica trip has been one for the books! It allowed me to learn so much about myself and getting out of my comfort zone. I got to experience everything with a wonderful group of students who ended up being a support system the whole trip as I was to them! Every moment of this trip has been imprinted in my mind and I wish I could still be there!
