Last Minute plans!! Turned out awesome!!

Reviewed By Callie - Roseville, CA | Traveled to
My boyfriend and I broke up at the very last minute for a trip to Cancun! I decided to still go but was left with no place to stay, no transportation and no activities planned! Within a few days Mario had all of that organized and I had a fabulous trip!! Everything was first class at a very fair price! I was safe and didn't have to worry about a thing. A true vacation!! I'll be booking with him again for my next vacation! Thanks Mario!
