safety & tips Jul 20, 2018

Is it really safe to travel to Mexico and the Caribbean?

Maybe you’ve asked that question in your head many times, but you never really got the answer to it.

Some people say it’s "okay" while others just flood you with U.S. media articles that will scare you off in a heartbeat.

But for someone like me who’s been there countless times, I wanted to share this with you... 

Despite all the worries and fears about traveling to Mexico and the Caribbean, I still travel. I’m NOT saying that’s a legal recommendation for YOU. But for me as a traveler, I have no hesitations.

Yes, there are places that are safe to go and not safe to go but here’s what’s important – you need to educate yourself.

Educating yourself before visiting ANY foreign place is the best thing that you can do to prepare yourself for a safer and more enjoyable trip.

Save Time & Money with These 2 Travel Photos

airport Jun 14, 2018

Going on a vacation is exciting...until something goes wrong.

And I've learned from BOTH of these situations and want to pass along my tips to avoid them!

--> I recommend taking these TWO PHOTOS as soon as you get to the airport that will save you LOTS of time - and possibly LOTS of money!

1.)  A photo of your car - what?

How many of you rush into a vacation but when you get back you can’t find your car?

I know you think you'll remember, but it may take you a while.

But by taking a car in the parking lot with noticeable "landmarks" of visible in the photo will help you save so much time and effort.

Check out what this client above mentioned on FB!

 

2.) A "selfie" with your luggage - yup!

Now, this isn't one of those photos you take so that you can share it with everyone else.

Instead it's a FULL BODY selfie.

Just in case, take a whole-body photo of you standing next to all of your luggage when you arrive at the airport.

planning Apr 28, 2018

 

"How can I save money on my Caribbean vacation”, you ask?  

Now, I'm a HUGE advocate of "you get what you pay for" - ESPECIALLY when it comes to Caribbean vacations.

Out of the 29 most recent resorts I've been to, I would probably only recommend 6 or 7 of them to my clients.

Believe me. What you see is NOT always what you get.

There's a HUGE difference in booking based on value for your budget instead of on price alone. Oh. My.

BUT, there ARE a few things you can do to have a less costly vacation without sacrificing the quality of the resort for sure!

Check out this video that explains the 5 easy tips to save money on YOUR next Caribbean vacation!

Uncategorized Apr 13, 2018

When you go on a tropical vacation, what are the top 3 things that you bring with you? Do you have a list of “must-have’s” or items that you can’t live without?

Being a travel agent and someone who travels a lot, I’ve forgotten to pack lots of things because they don't cross our minds when heading for warmer weather.

AND I've found that there are some tricks of the trade when it comes to the wind blowing, legs sweating and uncomfortable transitions from the outside heat to the air conditioned restaurants and cold plane rides!

1.) BEST CLOTHING CHOICES

Most people would grab different outfits to bring...maybe bring their favorite sets of capris and fancy tops. Makes sense, right?

When Should I Buy My Flights?

When it comes to buying flights, one of the biggest things that we often worry about is the PRICE.

This is why we’re always on the lookout for the best dates to fly, right?

When should you buy your tickets?

The problem with buying flights is that prices fluctuate daily. And I've found even HOURLY!

In just a few span of days or a week, the price could go up hundreds of dollars rather quickly.

True story:

One of my client’s waited a week to book after I prepared their quotes for them... and the price went up $300 for them in that time!

Check out these top 3 mistakes and how to avoid them:

 Top Planning Mistakes:

Nowadays, we have a habit of listening to other people's advice on where to stay and what to "do" on vacation...and it's great to get input! BUT, just because someone's vacation was right for THEM doesn't mean it's right for YOU!

1.GOOGLE FINGERS

When you start to look for vacations perfect for YOU, you need to STAY AWAY from Google until you know exactly what it is that you want for your vacation.
