Caribbean Travel Specialst

I own a travel agency that specializes in leisure and group travel to the Caribbean, Mexico, and Central America. I founded The Journey Group 18 years ago after wanderlust and a six-month tour of Central America forced a change of heart from medicine to travel. I knew I had to be a part of this ever-changing exciting industry.

While my company handles every type of leisure travel, my personal client base is primarily made up of group travel, honeymoons, and family reunions - travel styles I am very passionate about.

The islands of the Caribbean are our marketing focus. Our work is based on over 16 years of professional experience, thousands of hours of travel industry certification and training, and hundreds of exploratory trips. Our office stays educated on everything Caribbean from pop-culture to environmental issues threatening the region and we share this knowledge on our social media channels.

We only sell what we know. By focusing solely on the Caribbean and surrounding tropical locales, my team has in-depth local knowledge of what’s happening in the region. This ensures our clients arrive informed. Our personal relationships with the properties we book, ensures our clients arrive expected and their individual needs are met.

My passion for the island way of life runs deep. I flip for hot new hotels, exotic flavors, hidden beaches, breathtaking views, luxurious upgrades, and the latest in travel technology & trends. I share these finds on our social media channels – follow along for future travel inspiration.

Caribbean + Mexico Group Travel Specialist

I look forward to helping you escape to Paradise!
I look forward to helping you escape to Paradise!

I have specialized in group travel to the Caribbean & Mexico since 2000. My team of travel consultants are able to assist with every type of group: meetings and incentive travel, destination weddings, multi-generational family reunions, corporate retreats, bachelor and social gatherings.

Let’s face it; in today’s overstimulated world of technology, it is difficult to plan a trip for 1, much less 101. We’ve got you covered. We’ve been booking group travel to the Caribbean, Mexico, and Central America for over 18 years. That’s a long time in the travel industry. We know what works and what doesn’t. We’ve streamlined the process to be as simple as possible. You may hire us as location consultant or a full-service travel firm.

Very Responsive and Too Notch Customer Service

Reviewed By JDA - Houston, Texas | Traveled to Bahamas ~ Caribbean
Laura has arranged two vacations for me. First my honeymoon in Jamaica and then a vacation in the Bahamas. Since day one she was always very responsive and quickly answered any questions. When we arrived in the Bahamas and found our ocean view room to not have quite the view we expected, she immediately contacted management and had us moved to a better room. Throughout that process she stayed in touch by text even though it was a Saturday. Very happy with her level of customer service and we will certainly use her again in the future.

Awesome getaway

Reviewed By LC - Austin, TX | Traveled to Grand Cayman ~ Cayman Islands ~ Caribbean
I have used Caribbean Journey twice now! Both times have been an amazing experience. We were upgraded at no additional charge both trips. Thanks to Laura, our tip was stress free. Everything was taken care of from the flight, hotel, and even excursions. We recommend Caribbean Journey to all of our friends and family and will definitely use them in the future. Thanks again, Laura.

5th Vacation with Laura!

Reviewed By Kara - Phoenix, Arizona | Traveled to Mexico ~ Mexico
This was the 5th vacation that Laura has set up for us. Every trip has been a success. On this last trip, she arranged a private candlelight dinner on the pier for our group, which was outside what the resort normally does because our group was too large to accommodate on the beach. Every aspect of it was perfect and it was such a wonderful surprise for our friends! Unfortunately, one of our couples lost their mother during this trip. I made the call to Laura and woke her up and she had their flight changed within ten minutes. She also arranged for a private limo to transport them to the airport. While it was a stressful time, that gesture made it so much better for them. I can't say enough wonderful things about Laura and her staff. We have made the decision that we won't travel again without using her agency.

We use her again for future Caribbean travel!

Reviewed By Gene - Chicago | Traveled to Turks and Caicos Islands ~ Caribbean
My wife and I were looking for a beach-side villa on a pristine white sand beach for our family of 5 - somewhere in the Caribbean or Atlantic. I had been working with another travel agent who informed me these were hard to find and kept sending information about resorts (which we did not want). This back and forth went on for over 2 months, until frustrated and worried we might be running out of time, I finally wised up decided to look for help elsewhere. I used google to find and compare other agencies which specialized in Caribbean vacations and decided to contact Caribbean Journey. Within hours, Laura had sent me a list of nearly a dozen options - all of which were precisely what we were looking for (and even some which we hadn't considered but were truly intriguing options). She was the ultimate professional - responsive, informative, and patient in answering our countless silly questions. In the end, we settled on a wonderful villa in Turks and Caicos Islands...

Where to begin?

Reviewed By Lauren W. - Alpharetta, GA | Traveled to Cancun ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Where to begin? Caribbean Journey took care of everything! There was no stone left unturned when it came to considering timing and booking of transfers and accommodations. Laura went above and beyond to make sure that we were well taken care of and that our vacation was everything we dreamed it to be. I would recommend using Caribbean Journey to all of my family, friends, and extensive professional network! Thank you for everything!!!

Jamaican Honeymoon!

Reviewed By Michelle Presley - Washington, DC | Traveled to Negril ~ Jamaica ~ Caribbean
My fiance and I just got back from our honeymoon in Jamaica. Laura was an absolute gem to work with. She was extremely responsive and on top of any questions we had! We did not have to worry about a thing! Our travel documents were sent directly to us in great detail of what to expect when traveling and what to bring along. For a couple who has never been to Jamaica before, the travel documents and having Laura just an email/text away was such a relief! We breezed through security and were able to find our shuttle in no time! We also use Laura for our yearly company trip which consists of about 60-65 rooms and Laura impresses us year after year. She is so easy and wonderful to work with and I will continue to book every single vacation through her! Thank you so much!

Amazing Caribbean vacation

Reviewed By Whittchan - New York | Traveled to St. Lucia ~ Caribbean and Barbados
Laura is simply the best. My boyfriend and I were not sure where in the Caribbean we wanted to go, but Laura's expertise guided us well.
We wanted to visit two islands and Laura provided multiple itinerary ideas that all sounded wonderful.
On the day of our departure, our flight was cancelled due to Hurricanes- Laura arranged all travel changes for us and it was completely stress free.
Our vacation to St Lucia and Barbados is one we'll never forget - I fe confident recommending Laura to plan your get away.

Business Trip with extra adventures included

Reviewed By Tim - Cincinnati, OH | Traveled to Kathmandu ~ Nepal ~ Central Asia
Laura was instrumental in handling the travel and lodging logistics associated with a first time trip to Nepal. She more than delivered on executing all the travel and lodging logistics including transit hotel stays during the long journey. Because of Laura's support, the trip turned out far more than a typical business trip to the Middle East. I look forward to collaborating with Laura again on my next trip.
