Sara Nakash, Brooklyn bred, world tread. She has braved prison ghost cats in New Zealand, was involved in a bush taxi car chase in Togo, and accidentally biked from Luxembourg to Germany. Her love of travel was matched by her frustration in finding a service to cater to her particular travel goals. From this frustration Off the Map Travel was born. Here anyone can escape those cookie cutter travel packages and truly embrace the nature of your destination.


Stunning Lake Atitlán—ringed by volcanoes and home to a large Mayan community—just begs to be appreciated. And there is no better way to really experience a place than by having a local show you around.
