WELLNESS TRAVEL AGENT DIRECTORY
I grew up in a sun-kissed suburb of Mexico City, and I lived in Mexico for 24 years. Growing up in one of the largest, most dynamic cities in the world has inspired me to always seek out culturally rich travel experiences, the kind that have you feeling more like a local than a tourist. Mexico is a vibrant country, and visit at least once a year with my two teenage daughters. It’s important to open our children’s eyes to the wonders of the world, by introducing them to new people, cultures, and ideas. A touch of luxury in every trip I plan. It truly elevates your travel experience to “unforgettable” levels. Designing luxury golf vacations, whether with your family, your golf buddies, or your colleagues, is a specialty of mine. My love for people and the world started my career as a travel agent. I believe everyone can afford to travel with advance planning and a payment plan you can discover the world your way.
