REAL Adventures for Experienced Travelers

What Our Customers Say

All of the guides were incredible. Augusto, Ruben, and Patricia are the best guides I have ever worked with from any country. On a scale of 1-to-10, it was a 15! It was a life changing trip for me.

We loved the whole thing; so difficult to choose what was the best!

APPROACH YOUR ADVENTURE
WITH JOYFUL ABANDON

WE’VE GOT YOUR BACK. GRAB A CHICHA MORADA
AND ENJOY THE RIDE.

We give you a chance to learn from and about the locals by building in meaningful activities with everyday people doing extraordinary things to change their corner of the world and beyond.

We personally research and test each and every adventure to make sure that it is safe, fun, and inspiring. We also make sure that you are properly prepared so your adventure is memorable for all the right reasons.

We work hard to create experiences that are greater than the sum of their parts – experiences that exceed expectations time and again. We can’t wait to spark a little unexpected delight that takes you from the every day to extraordinary!

We like to leave a trace. Yes, you heard that right. We work with local tour guides, drivers, hotels, farmers, fishermen, and restaurants to ensure that your tourist dollars leave the local community better off. We also support local community projects (especially those that help women and girls, whenever possible.)

We do REAL adventures for experienced travelers.  This means that sometimes, you are going to be a bit challenged. It’s that challenge that makes the adventure worth remembering. It’s that challenge that gives you stories to tell. It’s that challenge that earns you bragging rights. And, quite frankly, it’s that challenge, at least in part, that makes our adventures feel life changing.
