Heather Pankratz

Sheboygan, Wisconsin Travel Agent

Destination Wedding & Honeymoon Specialist

I grew up dreaming about foreign destinations, and I became a flight attendant so I could travel the world as much as possible. I was in the industry for over 10 years, and I gained a lot of insight into professional traveling.

I eventually became a travel agent because I wanted to work directly with clients and create amazing itineraries. For the past four years, I’ve been sending groups on wonderful vacations to the Caribbean and beyond! I specialize in honeymoons, destination weddings, and family vacations on sunny beaches. I love the Caribbean Islands, and I have years of experience studying the best resorts and activities to recommend to my clients.

I am an expert on Costa Rica and Mexico, and I can help you discover amazing places that are often overlooked. From black sand beaches to hot springs and hidden trails, I will work with you to find unforgettable additions to your trip! I will personalize your vacation so every moment is filled with magic and adventure. I will go the extra mile to make your trip unique and enthralling, and this starts by finding the perfect resort in the best destination for you.

I am always keeping up with changes in the industry, and I have specialist certifications from some of the Caribbean’s leading brands including:

  • Disney Cruises
  • AM Resorts
  • Marriott
  • Palladium
  • And more!
  • RIU & Iberostar

I love booking destination weddings, and I have booked everything from intimate weddings on the beach to ceremonies with over 100 people. I know how to take the stress out of booking, and I will prepare all documents and reservations well in advance so you can fully enjoy your big day!

For family vacations, I will prepare everyone in your group so you all can have an amazing time. I know which resorts are best for families with small children, and I will simplify your itinerary to reduce stress and make traveling with kids easier than ever!

I am always available to answer your questions or help with your itinerary. I want to make your travel dreams come true, and I will do everything to make that happen on your next trip.

Contact me today to start booking your next wonderful adventure!

Our 25th Wedding Anniversary Mazatlan Get Away

Reviewed By Kay & Fred - Cedarburg, Wisconsin | Traveled to Mazatlan ~ Sinaloa ~ Mexico
Heather was awesome to work with! In January, 2015, it was our 25th wedding anniversary and we wanted to celebrate at an all inclusive in Mexico. We reached out to Travel Leaders and were very fortunate and happy to be connected with Heather. She listened to what we wanted our get away to include and she was very thorough in fulfilling our dream trip. We went to Pueblo Bonito Emerald Bay All-Inclusive Resort and Spa in Mazatlan, Mexico. It was an unforgettable adventure! Everything was perfect thanks to Heather! In fact, we're working with Heather on putting together our next vacation!

A trip we will not forget!

Reviewed By B & K - Sheboygan WI | Traveled to Mexico
My wife and I had never really gone on our honeymoon. After 15 years of marriage I decided to surprise my wife with a trip to Mexico. My wife and I really have not traveled out of the state very often, much less a different country. Heather asked all the right questions and gave us many different options. My wife and I decided to go to the Valentin in Riviera Maya, Mexico. The trip was nothing short of spectacular to say the least. We talk about going again in the next few years and we feel that we may have to go to the same resort because anything else may be somewhat of a letdown.

Heather made sure to let us know that she was available from the beginning to the end of our trip. We will be going back to her to plan our next vacation.

Thank you Heather!

Perfect Anniversary

Reviewed By Mark - Germantown, WI | Traveled to Hawaii ~ USA
Heather was great. I first contacted her only a few weeks before I was looking to go. She got a couple plan options organized within the day, and when there was a change in the plans, she incorporated swiftly. This was being planned as a surprise trip for my wife, and Heather worked everything out so it would remain that way.

Much needed Vacation

Reviewed By jkm - Wisconsin | Traveled to Mexico ~ Mexico
This was the second time we worked with Heather and will be working with her again in the future. Heather came through for us on our vacation to Mexico that was much needed! We truly can not thank her enough. She made our trip seamless. From finding us a deal we could not turn down to working out all the 'kinks' we could have had but didn't because she is such an amazing and knowledgeable agent! Heather made sure that all our 'must haves' were met! She even called the resort several time just to be sure we would receive the accommodations we asked for. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone! She is the best and I can't wait to work with her again soon!

Caribbean Cruise

Reviewed By W & R - Waldo, WI | Traveled to Caribbean Sea ~ At Sea ~ At Sea
Heather did a great job planning both of our cruises. On the first one, we ran into a bit of a snafu with transportation from the hotel to the cruise dock and Heather was able to fix the problem (on her own time, after work hours) for us and we really appreciated her efforts in getting everything corrected with the hotel.

Rapid Response and Wonderful Vacation

Reviewed By Julie - Sheboygan WI | Traveled to Playa Mujeres ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
It was October of 2015, and a Hurricane was hitting Puerto Vallarta, the resort we were booked to fly into that day. Within hours Heather had us re- booked and ready to go to another resort in Cancun, Playa de Mujeres for that same time period. We enjoyed are vacation and were very happy with the rapid response Heather had finding us an alternative place to vacation. She is really good to work with. I would recommend her to anyone that is looking for a vacation spot.

Great Mexican Destination

This was our second trip that Heather has helped us plan and it was everything she said it was going to be and more. We wanted warm weather, beach, and all inclusive within our budget. She recommended Valentin Imperial Maya which she has visited before so she knew everything about it. Very informative which helped make our decision to go here. We had a great time and look forward to going back to this resort again someday.
