Desiree Weinandt

Willmar, Minnesota Travel Agent

Travel Consultant

With a passion for travel and helping others, I jumped at the opportunity to join the team at Travel Leaders. It is rewarding for me to help you navigate through the thousands of transportation and lodging options that are quite overwhelming. I am dedicated to taking care of the details, saving you time and providing solutions to enhance your travel experience. When planning for my clients, I always use the same attention to detail as I would for myself. I am as excited about your trip as you are! Over the years I have enjoyed travels to many locations: St Maarten, Jamaica, Dominican Republic as well as many within Mexico including Cabo and Riviera Maya. I have been fortunate to create lasting memories full of adventure, culture, art, music and authentic food! It’s all very inspiring. My journeys have enriched my life in ways that can't be measured and I believe that travel will do that for you too. "Certainly, travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living." -Mary Ritter Beard

My Favorite Trip

My favorite vacation so far has been on the beautiful island of St Maarten in the Caribbean. Even before landing, I fell in love with the pristine sand, true-blue water and all too perfect weather there. In seven days, I did not tire of watching the many aircrafts as they nearly graze the ocean to land on the tiny island near Maho Beach. I witnessed world class sailboat racing during the SXM Heineken Regatta. We spent the afternoon as the only inhabitants of Baie Rouge beach. I challenged myself to finish a handpicked 3.5lb lobster at Skip Jack's Seafood Market. An unforgettable trip!

The Karisma Experience with El Dorado Resorts

I recently had the pleasure of visiting El Dorado Resorts in Riviera Maya and it certainly did not disappoint. I stayed at El Dorado Seaside Suites in a 7th floor ocean view swim-up suite. My room was spacious, decorated beautifully with a picture perfect view. The room was impeccable, no detail ... Read more from my The Karisma Experience with El Dorado Resorts story.

Nassau & Paradise Island

The island of Nassau is only 21 miles long by 7 miles wide, yet there was so much to see and do! I enjoyed shopping at the Straw Market, sampling different flavors of rum cake and strolling Bay Street. Climbing the Queen’s Staircase was well worth the exercise, the panoramic view ...

Jamaican Experience -Beaches, People, Adventure!

Reviewed By Cindy - Fairfax, MN | Traveled to Jamaica ~ Caribbean
We had a group of 10 traveling to Jamaica and decided to go through a travel agent in Willmar, MN. I called Travel Leaders and spoke with Desiree - what a wonderful person to work with. She set everything up for us in record time and discussed at length our different options. Her expertise in the travel industry was helpful and the fact that she had traveled to our destination already was a plus. I had asked for a "different" sort of day trip something that the hotel wouldn't offer and Desiree came up with the "Meet the People" program. It was a program where we actually went into a Jamaican home and they prepared authentic dishes for us. We enjoyed an evening of comparing lifestyles and our lives with this Jamaican family and their neighbors-unbelievable experience! Thanks to Desiree - she was able to set this wonderful experience up for us. It was a pleasure working with Desiree and we would recommend everyone to contact her for their next travel adventure!

was an amazing trip

Reviewed By Ma - Belgrade, MN | Traveled to Nashville ~ Tennessee ~ USA
Desiree was very helpful in planning our trip. She did her best to get the best pricing and times that worked for us. We had a great time on the trip and toured many different areas of Nashville. And the country music was awesome. I would recommend any county music fans to take a trip to Nashville. It is well worth the money. Thanks Desiree. You helped make our trip a success.
