Great trip with friends!

Reviewed By Holly - Belle Chasse, LA | Traveled to Punta Cana ~ Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
Maria guided us each step of the way. All of our paperwork was in order for our trip. The tips about purchasing the tourist card and using the passport app were very helpful in saving us time! I would make one suggestion though...we felt like we were unaware of dress code for restaurants at the resort. The guys in our party were not prepared with long pant and closed toe shoes for each night at dinner. We were not able to eat in some of the restaurants due to the dress code.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Maria Evangelista responded:
Hi Holly, Thank you for the kind review. I had provided the information on the dress code in the original quote under the restaurant section. I'll make a note to provide the information again in the travel documents. Best regards, Maria Evangelista

One Perfect Honeymoon

Reviewed By Kristen Hooper - Montgomery, al | Traveled to Punta Cana ~ Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
Working with Maria was fantastic! I literally did nothing at all and had nothing to worry about as far as the Honeymoon, which is what I needed because I was busy wedding planning! I only had to give her my top three resorts and the dates we were going on our trip, and the rest was taken care of for me. She even sent me everything I needed by mail in a nice little travel pouch! Our trip was perfect and worry free and i will absolutely use this service again!

Honeymoon!

Reviewed By Chuck - Madisonville, Louisiana | Traveled to Antigua ~ Antigua & Barbuda ~ Caribbean
Maria made our trip stress and worry free. Prior to our honeymoon, we bought a house and had to plan the wedding. Maria took all of the actions necessary to ensure that our honeymoon would not feel like something we needed to stress about planning. She was always in communication and provided excellent travel services. We are so happy we decided to use her for our honeymoon!

Thanks, Maria!

Maria is the best!!

Reviewed By Tony - Metairie, LA | Traveled to
My wife and I have used Maria’s services for a trip to the Mediterranean and most recently to Alaska. Maria’s knowledge of available itineraries and her attention to detail made our decision making easy. Throughout the planning Maria was available to answer all of our questions and provide information to help make our trips unforgettable. She met with us in our early planning stage, and provided materials to aid in our decisions. She kept in touch with us until departure, and followed up on our experience upon return. Both trips were fantastic with no problems. I have used travel agents in the past, and without doubt, Maria is the best. I highly recommend Maria for your future travel needs. We definitely will!

Best travel agent ever!

Reviewed By melinda - Dallas, TX | Traveled to
Maria is the best travel agent I have ever used. She explained to me many options within my price range for vacations. She even found a better deal for my trip before she booked it. Anytime I have contacted Maria, she has got back with me asap...which is hard to find sometimes with travel agents...especially after they have booked your trip. Maria's excitement and fun personality will have you wanting to travel the world!!! She is very knowledgeable about destinations. I've recommended maria to my friends in LA & in TX!

Maria Was So Helpful and Knowledgable

Reviewed By Todd - Gretna, La. | Traveled to
I have travelled to the Caribbean for years with my mother and father, and then with my own family, but no travel agent I have ever dealt with has been more helpful, but especially knowledgable about nearly every location. I have gone through Maria several times now, and there has not been one resort or location that I have inquired about that she does not have a commanding knowledge. She has always answered every question I have had and even offered her own expertise and advice to help make my vacations the best possible. I can guarantee that whenever I choose to go to the Caribbean again, I will go through Ms. Maria Evangelista. It was a godsend when she first helped me years ago, and I plan on sticking with her as long as I travel.

Awesome, AWESOME

Reviewed By Wanda - Gray, La | Traveled to
Words can not display the love, energy and commitments Mrs. Maria has for planning your dream vacations. I say vacations because she has planned many for my family and I. She is a lady true to her words and humbly delivers a superior accomplish of a dream that comes alive. ALL my worries were hers, she encouraged me many times when I was hopeful. You see Mrs. Maria help me planned an beautiful destination wedding in Jamaica with all the royal treatments, yes, my husband and I were treated like a king a queen and that wasn't for one day that was ALL seven days; from breakfast serve by a butler with white gloves, to butlers with white gloves picking us up and dropping us off to all events and escorting us and guess to tables, placing napkins in laps and pouring the first bottle of wine. Yes, the butlers made the evening reservations, brought out lunch and drinks in a matter of minutes, and all we did was use our resort given cell phone. She made sure we got the whistles, couples massages, special surprise arrangements in the room; bubble baths yes, pebbles in the water decorative, oh and the water was just perfect when what a surprise. YES, EVERYTHING WAS fantastic!!!! But it doesn't stop there, she has schedule all cruises which are about four and she is working on one right now for the family, plus she doesn't my anniversary vacation yearly.

Maria is super knowledgeable and easy to work with!!

Reviewed By Ashley - Pearl River, LA | Traveled to
We could not have asked for a better travel agent! From start to finish, she was there when we needed her. The day of our depature to our honeymoon the flight was delayed almost two hours. No one was assisting us at the airport and I called Maria and she was able to get us information on our flight within 5 minutes! Aside from that, she was able to provide multiple all-inclusive resorts from us to choose from and helped us stay within budget. She is very patient and not a pushy salesperson. I highly recommend Maria for all our your future travel needs! I know I will!

My second vacation with JMJ travels and I'll be sure to return for more vacation planning!

Reviewed By Jennifer - New Orleans, La | Traveled to
My fiancé and I were looking for a unique, cozy place to travel to for our honeymoon. We had some specific things that we for sure knew we wanted and things we knew we didn't. Maria was great! She sent us several PowerPoint presentations of different resorts and gave us her expert advice we found the PERFECT honeymoon destination. I also wanted to set up a honeymoon registry so our guests could have the option to give us a zip line tour or a couple message instead of a boring toaster. She was easy to work with and helped me every step of the way.

Ms. Maria is very great at her work! She helped my husand and I narrow our choices for our honeymoon. I had an idea but wasn't sure where to go and how it all worked. Thankful for Ms. Maria, she is excellent, fast, and responds quickly to emails. She even had all of our paper work ready for us when it was mailed to us for our honeymoon. We loved our gift she sent us that was two passport that said "Mr." And "Mrs." Even nice luggage tags she threw in for us which I thought was sweet.

The best travel agent I have ever had

Reviewed By cindy - Berlin, PA | Traveled to
To be honest, I have always used Cheap Carribean as our travel specialist. This year I had tried to book there with a agent and kept getting the run around. I saw Maria's ad on facebook and started messaging with her. She was very quick to answer my emails and texts. She not only helped to plan the vacation, but went beyond her call of duty to make sure we were happy with our choice, even after we arrived in Cancun. She checked prices for us several times, and made the whole booking so easy. I now consider her a friend, not just my agent. I will definitely book with her next year. Thanks Maria!!!!

She made everything Fun and Stress Free

Reviewed By Alexis - Marrero,LA | Traveled to
Maria put together a group trip for about 10 people. We were all on a budget and of course. maria gave us a good, better, best option. I loved that we gave her a certain location and she expanded it to other places Close by to where we can het more bang for our buck. She is always friendly and super fast. Maria makes planning a vacation fun. As it got closer she would send us emails with reminders and countdowns which made it Real! When we got to the beach house maria sent us a bottle of champagne told us to enjoy our trip. Again, i have used her for 2 personal vacations and a group friend vacation All went fantastic!
