Selected by Travel & Leisure magazine for its exclusive “Five to Watch” list of agents on the rise and listed as an American Express Travel Insider as a Belize/Costa Rica specialist since 2005. Our personalized service as a husband and wife team, you will be working directly with us from our first phone call to when you return home. We want every trip that we book to be crafted with value, imagination, and your direction.
In 2003, our passion was sparked to become travel specialists while exploring the beautiful countries of Belize, Costa Rica and Guatemala. Falling in love with this area of the world, we decided that it was our calling to help other people experience the wonder of Central America. We created Central America Journeys to share and promote the beauty and magic of Central America through first-hand knowledge and by providing travel experiences beyond expectations. We make travel dreams a reality by assisting our clients in planning creative and luxury focused travel itineraries that encompass their interests and passion.
We visit Central America annually to stay up to date on hotels, destinations, and tours. We work with licensed and reputable ground operators in each country to ensure your time abroad is hassle free. We also do our part to engage in sustainable travel practices.
