Barbara Camacho

San Diego, California Travel Agent

An independent agent with Nexion, LLC in Irving, TX, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Mexico & Caribbean All-Inclusive Travel Specialist

I specialize in researching and organizing the very best travel experiences tailored to your specific needs. Whether it's cruises, all-inclusive resorts, escorted tours or independent travel, I will utilize my superior research skills to provide you with a great, personalized vacation.

After a career in data processing I'm well aware of how scary and overwhelming the internet can be. Yes, the information is all there, but do you really want to spend your valuable time digging out everything you need to know and relying on the opinions of people you've never met? Of course, it takes a lot more than just knowing how to use a computer and a search engine to find the perfect holiday. Wouldn't you rather work with a professional with personal experience at the destinations you desire?

I consider myself a problem solver. Vacation planning is no different than dealing with any other type of problem. There are always constraints: time, budget, distance, comfort level. And there are always solutions. I can maximize your travel value while working within your constraints. I am passionate about travel, not just my own but yours too. And I'm passionate about travel planning.

My focus is on you. Let me take the burden out of vacation arrangement so that you can enjoy all the joys and value of personalized travel.

Awesome adventure!

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Barbara! She helped me EVERY step of the way! Because this was my first cruise experience, I had A LOT of questions and concerns. Barbara patiently answered each one and helped me feel confident with my travel decisions. She is very knowledgeable and was able to address every aspect and need of our trip. Thank you, Barbara!

Knowledge and thoroughness

Reviewed By WineDoc - Pismo Beach, CA | Traveled to
We have done many trips using Barbara Camacho's services. Barbara is extremely thorough in helping us plan our vacations, and quick to pursue any new leads or price reductions before we are 'locked in.' She knows our preferences and tries to adhere to them as much as possible, and she always keeps us informed of any needed changes. Barbara is also great about reminding us of necessary documents or items we should consider taking. We've never been disappointed with a trip she has helped to plan, and we look forward to many more vacations under her guidance and follow-through.

She did it all and it was great!

Reviewed By John - Dallas, Tx | Traveled to
Barbara was asked to complete a trip to Montreal, Quebec, Maine, and Boston. The parameters were tight and it was the week before school began in most parts of the country. Everyone was getting in that last bit of summer before school. The trip was great. Everything was on time, and the hotels were wonderful. She followed our requirements which were not easy. Both of use are over 68, so that was a consideration. We got the hotels, sightseeing, and times we requested. Great job! John Jenkins

Full of ideas! Easy to work with!

Reviewed By Marvin & Janet - Sonoma County, CA | Traveled to
We have booked several trips through Barb over the years. Some short, some long, some simple, some complex. She has always been quickly responsive to questions and requests for information. She truly loves what she does! And it shows in her planning. Barb is great for brainstorming! After a few clues and requests, she will provide several packages that demonstrate the range of options and costs involved. She also seems to have access to great packages and incentives for most everything we've booked through her. Highly recommended. Fun to work with. Very responsive. And Full of ideas!

Expert Cruise Planning

Reviewed By Bwaliszewski - California | Traveled to
Barbara planned 2 recent cruises for my husband and I - Alaska and NY to Canada. Both were beautifully planned and organized and went off without a hitch. Prior to working with Barbara, we didn't consider ourselves "cruise people", but after our 2 Graystone Travel-planned trips, we're hooked. Because she is such a seasoned traveler herself, she was able to give us suggestions and tips based on her own personal experiences. She really understood what we wanted and offered us choices that were excellent. We'll definitely use GraystoneTravel the next time we're planning a trip.
