RESEARCH

A personal travel planner does all the research and planning of the trip for you. I'll build a trip based on your personal preferences, family composition and special needs.

PROPOSAL

Accommodation, attractions, transportation, restaurants, and maps, are all provided. You will get a detailed file that includes all the information according to day and time. All that you need to do is sign-off and pack.

BOOKING

Anyone can book a hotel, but putting together a vacation takes time. The idea is to maximize your time and money instead of wasting it on an attraction you didn't know was closed or a hotel that looks beautiful only in pictures.

ENJOY

That's it. Just enjoy your trip. I've taken care of all the details, accessible right on your phone.

Belize

My area of expertise.

This small Central American country has so much beauty, culture and adventure to offer.
Whether you are excited about relaxing on the beach, diving, jungle treks, or history and culture, Belize has it all.

It’s a very diverse country and a great way to learn about the various cultures is by sampling the food. It varies greatly from the north to the south of the country.  My favorite dish that I tried was a coconut fish soup called hudut. This is a traditional dish from the Garifuna people, made with fresh coconut, herbs, and fish caught that day. You can learn all about their culture and try your hand at traditional ways of cooking at the Garifuna Cultural Center in Hopkins.

If you’re looking to skip the over-touristed beaches I recommend going to one of the cayes off the coast of southern Belize. Tobacco Caye and Southwater Caye are two of my favorite spots to stay. They are small, laid back islands on the barrier reef where the snorkeling and diving is unparalleled! It’s a great destination for a romantic getaway.

Belize has made it a top priority throughout the country to protect the environment. The barrier reef was recently taken off of the endangered list due to conservation projects and single use plastics are banned.

There are also many parts of the jungle that are protected wildlife sanctuaries.
Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary is recognized internationally as the world’s first jaguar preserve.
It is also known for its spectacular waterfalls, mountain views, and a rich diversity of tropical birds and mammals.

Belize should be high on your list of tropical destinations, it truly has something for everyone!

Other areas of expertise: NYC, SoCal, Croatia, Albania, Montenegro, Italy, Mexico, Costa Rica, Greece, Asheville NC, Atlanta, Key West and St. Augustine, FL
