Costa Rica, Caribbean & Mexico Specialist

What better way to refresh yourself during the cold winter months than a trip to warmer climates? I have visited Costa Rica three times and have planned fabulous warm weather vacations for my clients in Costa Rica as well as Mexico and the Caribbean. I love these destinations because there are many options for All Inclusive resorts. It's wonderful to be able to plan my clients vacation and send them out the door knowing they can relax and enjoy without worrying about extra costs.

Europe vacation 2017

Reviewed By Jeannette - West Richland, WA | Traveled to Europe
I have booked several trips with Sonia. She is dedicated and does her best to find the best deals for her clients. She truly spends quality and valuable one to one time with her clients. She worked with us to give us exactly what we are looking for and provided recommendations to help us meet our budget and time. Working with us in this manner has saved us time, money and worries and we were able to enjoy our vacation to the fullest. This Summer of 2017, we traveled to Amsterdam, London, Paris, Rome, and Berlin and had a blast. I'm sure this could not have been possible without Sonia's dedication. As long as I live in the area, I will always use Sonia to help with all our vacation planning.

Great Trips

We highly value Sonia's guidance in all our travel experience abroad. She has saved us thousands of dollars; booked trustworthy locals; offered insightful hints and how to's; etc. She helped us with Italy in '15; Med. cruise in '16; as well as tips in Maui. We trust her helpful input. Oh yeah, we just booked Alaska in '17. For example, Sonia booked us in Rome at Beverley Hills Hotel; our daughter and son-in-law booked their own hotel on internet. We were close in price; but not in quality or location or benefits, like breakfast. Put Sonia on your list and you will be richly rewarded!! Experience matters!! Larry and Dawn
