SplashMaps Expedition in Costa Rica

We love to get stories of adventures with thier personalised SplashMaps.  Each story, like the maps themselves, is so unique!  The latest story, a SplashMaps Expedition in Costa Rica, comes from our friends in the Scientific Exploration Society.  Their president, John Blashford-Snell, leads teams to do extraordinary things for the benefit of remote populations.

Yes, we really can do a SplashMap of anywhere on earth, and when seasoned explorers like John say “It was the only good map that we had and proved invaluable.” you know the simple to use Make-a-Map service we provide uniquely makes maps that beat the alternatives and can deal with the extremes of weather.

During July, the team encountered fierce crocodiles, howler monkeys, belligerent land owners and local tribes.  It’s a tale of grit and ingenuity in equal measure as SES and their colleagues built a much needed bridge and delivered essential medical and dental treatment to the local Guaymi tribe.

Survival in the tough conditions was assured as our friend and bushcraft expert Perry McGee from the National Tracking School joined the expedition.

Mission successful for this SplashMaps Expedition in Costa Rica!  I encourage you to read the interim report for a real flavour of adventure in the jungle.  Perhaps you’d even like to join John on his next voyage? We’d be happy to introduce you.  20150804 JB-S INTERIM REPORT
