Although modest in size, Sri Lanka proves that big things come in small packages! Nestled just North of the Equator, Sri Lanka enjoys the balmy waters of the Indian Ocean and its fresh air to provide a perfect landscape filled with untouched and remarkable beaches, tea plantations galour, wild-life rich lowlands and some of the most unique animals of any island on Earth. Also, and this shouldn’t be an afterthought, due to Sri Lanka’s over two thousand years of history, the interior portion of the country also presents the visitor with remarkable ruins and religious monuments from the early Sinhalese civilization. While the signs of early (and current) Buddhism are marked everywhere, the country is also dotted with foreign influence.
Due to it’s location in the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka had long be a staging post for trade that brought many tradesmen from around Europe and Arab nations, and they naturally brought along with them their traditions, history and, of course, cousine. So Sri Lanka became a melting pot over the centuries, and their visitors influence is still felt today. Travelers often try to plan a getaway to Sri Lanka when traveling to India, Nepal or Bhutan, but trust us, she is worthy of more than a flyover or a quick passthrough. “Ayubowan” is the word used in Sri Lanka to greet someone. It means Long Life. Come to Sri Lanka, you will thank us later!

"Having booked with The Escape Artist multiple times (Peru, Costa Rica, Kenya, Galapagos Islands) I knew that I wanted them to work with my girlfriends Mom on a family trip to Greece. John and Katie met us all out to go over the goals of the trip, like always. They built us a package based on our likes and dislikes, and they nailed it! Best part, mid trip wanted to alter our vacation a bit and spend more time in Mykonos. A simple email directly to them and everything was solved! They are fun to work with, but also amazing at what they do! Highly recommend giving them a shot!"
