President’s Message

Antonio-PradoWelcome to our very special travel community. Mapa Travel Group’s credo -“Travel with a Purpose”- sets our travel boutique apart from large agencies and online wholesalers. Living a philosophy of oneness with the Divine, Humanity and the Planet, we have created an affinity-based circle of friends who “live to travel”, sort of a travel club without the fees. One that helps you further your special interests and hobbies, simultaneously meeting similar-minded fellow travelers. Solo travelers will also find us comfortable, friendly and helpful in finding new friends.

Through our extensive experience in the humanities, gastronomy, literature, and divinity studies, we have designed three major categories. Arts and Cultural Enrichment take you to remote places like Thailand and Cambodia, Eastern Europe, South America, and unique destinations. Our Spirituality Program ranges from Catholic traditional like Semana Santa in Seville and Camino a Santiago, to mystic sites in Celtic lands, Cambodia, the US desert and Yucatan. Nature and Wellness experiences cater to those looking for off-the-beaten-path routes in scenic and serene places. Some prefer an intense fitness pace, others look for leisure activities, trying the local cuisine or engaging in people-to-people activities. These are not bare bones journeys, but first class all the way and FUN.

Based in Miami, the group has pooled together a network of guides, university professors, theology scholars, wellness trainers, hoteliers, and art lecturers. We are pioneers in creating Pre-trip Meet Ups in private homes or club venues to discuss local authors, wines, wellness rituals and cultural sites’ visits. By engaging our local tour operators in each country and eliminating office overhead, packages are at a fraction of the price offered by luxury style expeditions. Most importantly, affinity groups create enduring bonds. And we bring a life-changing experience to our travelers.

I look forward to sharing wonderful times of discovery and meaning with you, traveling with a purpose.
