Cancun Travel Agent Expert

Warm sands and cold drinks await you!
Warm sands and cold drinks await you!

As a travel agent for Cancun, I sometimes ask, “Is Cancun a city or a town?”  Luxurious resorts are located near white-sand beaches, a vibrant nightlife, and fine seafood restaurants. Additionally, the downtown section provides a sense of local character, such as the neighborhood taco shop. For a complete getaway, visit the unspoiled beaches of Isla Blanca, north of downtown.  That's what makes Cancun fascinating. If you need a small reprieve from the bustling hotel zone, you can always visit downtown and a salsa club. You can also browse and look at Mayan artifacts at the local museum.,  There is no better place to see one of the most significant collections of Mayan artifacts in Yucatán than at the Mayan Museum of Cancun. From sculptures to pottery and jewelry, a variety of items have been unearthed at major locations along the peninsula. In one of the three exhibition halls, there are Maya-themed displays. The first anthropological museum in Cancun was forced to close in 2006 from hurricane-related damage. A hurricane-resistant reinforced glass has been installed in the new museum.  One of the great experiences is snorkeling in Cancun’s Underwater Museum. You can see statues next to the Manchones reef zone as well. The reef, which lies between Cancun’s beach and Isla Manchones, is home to 455 statues. This comprehensive tour takes about 5 hours.  It is an exciting tour for families, couples, and singles. See turtles, rays, and schools of fish during your visit. The tour, which lasts 5 hours, gives you a chance to see some amazing carvings. Sculptures in the reef area include the Cross of the Bay, El Bacab, Silent Evolution, and The Promise. While you're in Cancun, you also want to take a tour of the Kukulkan Pyramid, also called El Castillo - a superb example of Mayan architecture. This monument is equal to the pyramids in Egypt. However, you cannot climb up the steps of the structure due to preservation concerns. As your travel agent for Cancun, I can suggest an array of exciting activities. You can lounge in the hotel zone as well as take an adventure away from the resort area. Get a taste of resort living, old town life, and history at the same time.

Costa Rica Travel Agent Professional To many people, Costa Rica is a must-visit destination since it is Central America's eco- and adventure-tourism hub. There's no permanent army in the nation, which makes it a green, tranquil area. That is part of the reason I love representing this country as a travel agent advisor. It offers peace and relaxation and a vacation that renews one’s senses and wellbeing. More than a third of the area is under environmental protection, and the region has more animal species  than the combined total of the United States and Europe.  Nature excursions into Costa Rica allow visitors to enjoy a wide range of outdoor activities, from rainforest treks to whitewater rapids to world-class surfing. A canopy zip line is only one of the many ways to get your heart racing. While tropical rainforests, boiling volcanoes, and cloud forests provide surreal views, solid surf breaks cater to both beginners and advanced surfers in national parks.  Having trouble making a decision? Don’t worry about it! As your travel agent specialist, I can organize a vacation that incorporates all of the aforementioned activities, given the country's small size.  Costa Rica's fauna is so abundant that it almost seems surreal. During your visit,  keel-billed toucans and scarlet macaws will swoon over you and greet you. you will also spot a sloth or two hanging from the branch of a tree.  You might also observe caiman eyes and snouts breaching the surface of a mangrove swamp or hear howler monkeys howling or white-faced capuchins chattering through rustling leaves.  Butterfly-fluttering blue morphos, orchid-covered trees, and an abundance of fish, sharks, rays, dolphins, and whales populate the waters off the coast.   It is not surprising that pura vida (the pure life) is a popular catchphrase and a lasting credo for Costa Ricans, or Ticos as they like to call themselves. They are proud of their tiny piece of paradise and want others to join them as well.  Costa Rica's beautiful surf, perfect sunsets, and ideal beaches make it seem as if you're living the life of your dreams in this Central American paradise. Won’t you contact me about arranging a holiday? You will greatly love this one-of-a-kind adventure. Call me now. I look forward to working for you as your travel agent advisor.

Ski vacation
Amanda helped us plan our family ski trip to Steam Boat Springs, Colorado. We stayed in the village where there were so many great restaurants and bars. Lovely snow conditions for ski and snow board activities and lots of nightlife.

Adventure trip to Maui
We planned a family vacation to Maui, Hawaii with Amanda. She helped us plan an adventure trip with ziplining, surf lessons, hiking to waterfalls, snorkeling and an atv trek that was so exciting! Not to mention the Luaus and beautiful scenic drive to Hana and Haleakala Crater. We made lifelong memories on this trip and cannot wait to plan our next with Amanda. She was very informative, professional and answered all of our questions and really addressed our needs and concerns.
