Javier Valdez

New York, New York Travel Agent

Myght, Inc., a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Group Travel, Corporate Travel, Impact Travel

I believe that tourism can be a force for good.

In March of 2016 I took a leap of faith, and quit my travel corporate job to begin the journey of a lifetime and develop one of the first full-service travel consulting Benefit Corporation in the country.

What makes us different is that I have ensured and committed that my organization will create social & environmental change with travel experiences. I will help you identify your next journey and guarantee the highest levels of services.

Furthermore, I promise that your travel experience will create positive change in the world.

My Background

I earned my 4-year undergraduate degree in Travel and Tourism from Arizona State University, traveled the world as a socially responsible traveler to places like Mexico, Central America, South America, Europe, Asia, and Hawaii. My corporate social responsibility & sales work with Hilton Hotels Worldwide brings the knowledge, expertise, and insights to new and experienced travelers.

My focus is to help you identify your next socially and environmentally friendly travel experience.  My approach is simple, I consult and have a deep conversation, provide advice, support through the travel experience, and help decipher your journey.
I help new and experienced travelers identify their next meaningful journey while positively impacting the world as they travel.

In addition, not only are you helping create change in the communities you travel to, but a percentage of our profit will be used to support our Youth See Innovation program, a development program that provides support, training, and networking opportunities for inner-city youth in NYC, and one day throughout the country.

Are you ready for your next Impact Travel experience?

Social Impact

"The Myght Team demonstrated brilliance to create a volunteer management platform, which was the heart of our Farm Fresh Festival for Kids.

Myght started with just an idea, and built a volunteer base to support and execute our 6000 person event.

Javier's thoughtful and thorough approach really made an impact.

He is a builder and believer of community. "

One of the best trip !

Mr Valdez was an amazing travel agent for me and my girlfriend !
He helped us to find the best accomodation we wanted for our trip and because of his expertise and dedication, we saved a lot of money and time ! We had an amazing hotel, one of the best for a very low price.
I must confess that without his help we probably wouldn't have envoyed our trip that much. He took care of everything for us and he always answered my questions, even after the trip.
So I recommand him if you want to save money, time and if you are looking for a great custromer service. Mr Valdez verified that everything was fine during our trip, and gave us so much good advices, I will ask for his help again for my next trip without any hesitation !

The best agent we could have met !

Reviewed By Lubi - Geneva | Traveled to Tulum ~ Mexico ~ Mexico
Mr Valdez was a great help for us and for our trip in general. We really liked the fact that he payed attention to our own needs and still found a way to make our travel as much ethical as possible on a social and environmental level). He helpt us for example to find a beautiful and romantic hotel that respected the environment. He had such an amazing expertise about Mexico that we didn't feel like tourists, we had the feeling that we were invited by someone who explained us the traditions and how to get the best of our trip. For example, he gave us advices about some restaurants and each time it was the best place we have been to : not expensive at all, the best food and we were happy that our money was really financing local people. Mr Valdez is so helpful, you can ask him a question anytime and he always have something to respond. He is very helpful with the organisation and very present during and after our trip. He is definitely very trustful and his recommandations are excellent!

Best trip to date

Reviewed By Warren B - New York, Ny | Traveled to Mexico
Javier was very instrumental in providing recommendations and travel trips for our trip to Mexico last month. He was able to save us a few hundred dollars by helping us to decide on our hotel, flight and excursion options. Mr. Valdez actively listened to our needs and gave us a plethora of information which resulted in us having one of the best trips to date. For example, my girlfriend and I wanted to maximize a 4 day weekend getaway to Mexico filled with visits to historical sites, beach access and an opportunity to experience local restaurants. With this in mind Javier recommended that we stay in Playa Del Carmen. Staying here gave us access to Mayan temples an hour away as well as allowed us the advantage of having local restaurants and the beach within a half block radius of our hotel. Convenience was key in making the most of our 4 day weekend away from NY and Javier was able to provide this for us while saving us money as a bonus.

A Trip to Remember

Reviewed By Grace - Montvale, NJ | Traveled to Caribbean Sea ~ At Sea ~ At Sea
Javier was an essential component to the organization of the trip myself and some family friends took. He worked tirelessly to get us the best prices for all our travel needs and stayed in touch with our group throughout the whole process, sending us continuous updates and always with good news. Whether it was late at night or even when he was sick, Javier constantly made himself available to us either by phone or email, happy to answer any questions we had. Our trip would not have been possible without Javier's help and guidance, and we're all eternally grateful for the services he provided.

Wedding Hotel Block

Reviewed By Brian - New York, NY | Traveled to Washington D.C. ~ District of Columbia ~ USA
Javier helped me set up a large hotel room block for guests at my wedding.

The level of service Javier provided was far beyond my expectations. It was clear that he was my advocate, clarifying key points with the hotel and actively making sure everything was in order. He even got an upgraded suite with complementary in-room champagne and desserts for me and my wife!

Javier went to bat for us and hit a home run. Phenomenal service!

Javier goes the extra mile!

Reviewed By Elisa - Sydney, Australia | Traveled to Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
Javier was of great assistance in helping to coordinate a trip for a group of us which involved exploring and volunteering in Cuba and the Dominican Republic. While the others were from the USA, I am from Australia which must have represented an additional logistical challenge for Javier but he never complained! He was on call leading up to the trip, during the trip itself and afterwards. Always friendly, very helpful and prompt with his assistance - even the weekend he got married and was on his honeymoon! Javier goes above and beyond and was a pleasure to liaise with. Thank you!

Unforgettable Trip!

Javier's expertise was remarkable. My husband and I ventured on our honeymoon to London, Paris, Venice, and Rome. We were stressed out because we did not know where to start. Javier guided our trip planning process and suggested worth taking expeditions. He answered all our questions and reassured us every step of the way. My husband and I had an amazing time and we owe Javier for our unforgettable experience! We cannot thank him enough! Please book with him and see for yourself!

Perfect Wedding + The Best Honeymoon!!

Reviewed By Maria - New York, NY | Traveled to Washington D.C. ~ District of Columbia ~ USA
Javier and his team were absolutely wonderful in helping plan the hotel block and transportation for our large DC wedding.

He helped manage all the relations with the hotel so that our guests could book seamlessly at reasonable rates. Because of Javier's help with setting up the hotel block for our wedding, we were able to leverage additional perks with hotel and could ensure that all our guests thoroughly enjoyed their time in DC!

We are also grateful that Javier helped manage all the logistics behind the transportation to and from the chapel with a limousine company. He ensured that there were no issues before, during or after the service.

All in all, thanks to Javier's service our wedding was perfect. His help in booking our accommodations and travel for our honeymoon to Charleston was the cherry on top. We are incredibly grateful to Javier and his team for professional, attentive, and truly thoughtful service. Thank you, Javier!

Our Travel MVP!

Reviewed By Michael Johnson - Montville, NJ | Traveled to Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
Javier is a consummate professional and a born planner. Throughout trip planning process, Javier was constantly on his A-game and readily anticipated our travel needs. Whenever we had a question or concern about the process, Javier was right on top of the matter with an answer not long after. As a seasoned traveler himself, he also brought a great deal of his own insights and tips into the mix, working off of his familiarity with these brands and trips to anticipate our needs and questions. Before we set sail aboard the Adonia on our Fathom impact cruise to Cuba and the Dominican Republic, Javier had prepared for us neat little travel packets with background information on the areas, as well as his own travel tips.

Javier's passion for impact travel is absolutely infectious, his sincere commitment to brightening the world through these types of social exchanges really helped to get us energized for our journey. Humble and kind, Javier was our constant digital companion. Thank you,
