All-Inclusive Resort & Worldwide Travel Expert

Overlooking Cancun Beach
Overlooking Cancun Beach

Imagine arriving in a beautiful foreign destination and not having to worry about a thing. At your beachside resort, you have access to inclusive buffets, restaurants, and more activities than you thought possible. As a specialist in all-inclusive resorts and travel since 1999, I know how to prepare the perfect package for you and your family!

I try to experience firsthand the most popular resorts and destinations so that I can make accurate recommendations to my clients. I listen to all of my client’s feedback as well, so that I can always provide the best accommodations.

Each resort has its own perks and all-inclusive offerings, and my job is to find the perfect match for you! Some Caribbean resorts have packages that are great for the whole family including areas for kids, fine dining, plus exceptional locale. Other resorts focus primarily on adult-only offerings, and these are great for honeymoons, destination weddings, and for an unforgettable experience with your partner.

I send my clients all over the tropical waters including luxury stays in Tahiti and Hawaii to paradise retreats in Cancun and Jamaica. Every destination has something unique to offer, and I will help you to find the best in every experience!

I am a Sandals and Beaches certified specialist as well as an AM Resorts Master Agent. My knowledge allows me to navigate the vast booking system to save you the time and frustration of doing it yourself. Vacations are meant to be relaxing and enriching, and you deserve to have everything planned in a stress-free and enjoyable environment!

I am always available to talk and answer questions during the booking process, and even up until you depart on your amazing vacation.

Allow yourself to enjoy your next vacation without the hassles of booking it on your own. Wherever you wish to go, I am ready to make it exceptional!

Bucket List Trip

Reviewed By Spare Free - Ankeny, Iowa | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
Aaron was most helpful putting a last minute cruise to Alaska together. There are many moving pieces that you dont think of and he was helpful with every step. Aaron was even accessble and helpful the day we boarded the ship...a Sunday which helped us quickly resolve a confusion that shipboard guest services had??

First trip to Jamaica

Reviewed By cahrendsen - Granger, IA | Traveled to Negril ~ Jamaica ~ Caribbean
Aaron was so easy to work with and was so fast at getting all information back to us. We told him we wanted to go to Jamaica but had never been, he then provided several options back to us and why he thought each one was good. We told him our budget and he kept us in that! We were so happy with the location and hotel we ended up choosing and he was right on with everything he said about it. We will be using him again for sure!

Honeymoon in Bahamas

Reviewed By Jamie - Ankeny, Iowa | Traveled to Nassau ~ Bahamas ~ Caribbean
My husband and I had never traveled outside of the country before this trip, and Aaron made the planning process very easy and extremely helpful for us. From answering my many questions to letting us know what to expect with the international flight and customs. Aaron was very helpful of staying within our budget and giving us a few different options of where we wanted to choose to go. He made the entire trip planning stress free and relaxing. We were referred to Aaron by friends, and I have gladly referred other friends on to him. As we will gladly book travels in the future thru Aaron!!

Great Travel Agent

Reviewed By Abs - Ankeny, IA | Traveled to Montego Bay ~ Jamaica ~ Caribbean
Aaron has booked several trip for myself and friends to the Riviera Maya, Cabo and most recently to Jamaica. We will provide Aaron with a list of our must haves and a price range and he always gives us options to choose from. He is always willing to answer questions and look up prices, regardless of how many times we change our minds on dates and locations.

Excellent travel agent service

Reviewed By Heather - Des Moines, IA | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Aaron is so easy to work with! He always has good suggestions for vacation destinations. We booked a trip to a resort in Mexico he recommended and we were excited. Aaron gave the option of vacation insurance which I normally don't purchase but this time I did. Good thing too - hours before our trip the stomach bug struck and we had to cancel the trip 90 minutes before scheduled to leave. What a bummer! Anyway, Aaron reached out on a Sunday to give some guidance on vacation insurance options. Two days later we had rescheduled another destination for just a few weeks later. Long story short - Aaron provided awesome service not only in the scheduling of our trip but in the re-scheduling as well. I highly recommend calling Aaron for your next vacation!

There When You Need Him the Most

Reviewed By Brenda - Ft. Collins, CO | Traveled to
I connected with Aaron in August 2001 when he worked at New Horizons in Fort Collins, CO. When he decided to move to Ankeny, IA to open up a New Horizon Agency there I was devastated as I thought I would have to find a new travel agent. My angst was for naught as he has served us with the same dedication from there as he did when he was the same city as us. For the last 15 years Aaron has planned all of our trips and upon our recommendation many family and friends trips as well. He has helped us with an Alaskan Cruise, Caribbean Cruises, all-inclusive resorts in Mexico, the Bahamas, Aruba, the Dominican Republic, and Antigua, along with trips to Hawaii and Tahiti. In addition to the big trips he was there for me when I was flying to ND from CO when my Mom had a stroke. While I was on the flight they had air ambulanced my Mom to Minneapolis so upon landing in Bismarck, ND and then driving the two hour trip to Minot, ND Aaron was on the phone with me getting flights and a hotel for my Dad, my brother and I in Minneapolis. He made a very stressful time so much easier to bear! His professionalism is unsurpassed. I am very particular when it comes to customer service and the fact that we have been with Aaron for 15 years speaks volumes. Our next adventure is scheduled for Grenada in November of this year and I have no doubt that it will be perfect as Aaron is in charge!

Honeymoon In Paradise

Reviewed By Mickey - Des Moines, IA | Traveled to
My wife and I had an amazing honeymoon in Jamaica, and Aaron is definitely to thank for making it so special. From our initial conversation, Aaron made us feel comfortable and had plenty of knowledge on the different options we were considering. Aaron helped us narrow down the options to a few, and even recommended Club MoBay service which was well worth every penny by skipping the long lines and led us exactly where we needed to be. We will definitely see Aaron again for our future travels!
