Family Vacations

Let’s face it, family trips don’t exactly scream “stress free”—more likely it’s the kids screaming in the back seat as they try to wrestle the iPad from one another. But an all-inclusive family escape? That’s about as low-stress as you can get—and

I’m going to make it even easier by planning every last detail for you. 

All-inclusive resorts make vacationing together a breeze; eat where and when you want (no reservation required), watch your kids splash away in the refreshing pools, and let the all-smiles staff make your entire stay a safe and pampered one. I’ll make sure I pair you with the perfect family-friendly resort for your needs, coordinate private transfers, make sure you feel FULLY prepared with walk-through videos and guides, and communicate your special requests to your resort, like food allergies or extra beds. We can even elevate your escape with private guided excursions for some off-property exploring, like a snorkeling boat tour where you can spy sea turtles or a refreshing cenote swim. 

Whether it’s just you and your kiddos, your favorite couple who also has kids (three cheers for built-in playmates!), or the whole gang—including aunts, cousins, and Grandma and Grandpa—get ready for some bond-building time together. Come home refreshed, with lots of new memories to cherish

—and leave it all to me.

Escaping somewhere sunny and 75 with all your favorite people? Then we have to get the vibe just right. As an all-inclusive resort specialist, I’m able to pair your group with the property that fits you all to a “t.” Maybe that’s a chic, modern resort with upscale dining and the poshest rooftop bar.  Maybe it’s a party-hardy property with endless entertainment options and a clientele more than happy to dance the night away. Or maybe it’s a more intimate, boutique-y spot that boasts one of the best beaches in Mexico. 

With hundreds of resorts to choose from, I make your choice easy by lasering in on the options I know will work for your group (and your budgets). Want to feel like real rock stars as you enjoy fun-and-sun together? Get the VIP treatment with private transfers, upgraded suites, and butler service—I’ll arrange it all.

BFF Getaways

The big birthday. The special anniversary. The bachelor/ette trip with your ride or dies. There’s no better way to celebrate a major milestone than by sinking your toes in the sand at a gorgeous all-inclusive. I’ll make sure you all celebrate in seamless style by taking care of all the group travel logistics for you—and by making sure you get to party in paradise at your perfect-fit resort. 

Want to make your celebration extra memorable (of course you do!)? Let me arrange special experiences just for your group at your property. Sink into “say ‘ahhhhhhh’” bliss during a pampering spa treatment, get a taste for a local favorite with a private mezcal tasting, or take in a different view of the stunning beach—from water!—on a sunset catamaran cruise. It’s time to turn up the dial on fun in the sun; you deserve it.

“Working with Melissa was very smooth and we appreciated everything she did to prepare us for our trip. We got regular emails with reminders of things to consider upon entering a new country, as well as a thorough PDF with guidance on everything from what to pack, how much to tip, what to expect at our hotels, etc. Melissa helped us make sure my sister's birthday was special! She also helped swiftly re-book us at a new resort when the first one had an incident.”

Melissa helped us make sure my sister's 
birthday was special! 

When someone asks “was using a travel agent worth it? My answer is always- absolutely, Melissa. I chatted with her about what I wanted to do for my 40th birthday celebration. She listened, made some suggestions, helped me pick just the right venue. And then created a helpful little webpage with all the booking info that I could share with family and friends who wanted to join my husband and I. She helped create an absolutely perfect 40th birthday celebration!

She made our trip so simple!

Having a travel agent is an absolute must and Melissa is the absolute BEST!! She takes all of the stress, guess work and uncertainty out of the planning and makes you feel relaxed, excited and so confident that you are making the best choice. She is extremely knowledgeable, has been to these resorts and can tell you exactly where you should go based on exactly what you are looking for. Whether it be the best beaches, best pools, most romantic, most group fun, highest quality or best bang for your buck, you will get everything you’re looking for and more with her own personal experiences and touches. She thinks of you and only you and you feel that every step of the way. I wouldn’t plan another trip without her or her expertise! 

You will get everything you are looking for and more!
