The Viva La Vida Travel Difference

I believe that travel changes lives and that it plays an integral part in creating a fulfilled life. It is an investment into ourselves. With that in mind, I treat every clients vacation as though it were my own. I  pride myself on getting to know my travelers and understanding their  travel needs, wants, and goals. From the beginning of planning your  vacation to your return home, Viva la Vida Travel is there with you  every step of the journey. 

Why Choose Viva la Vida Travel?

  1.  Personalized and attentive travel planning. ​
    Stop  pouring over travel websites that leave you confused and lost. Tell me  what you want, where you want to go and what you want to do and  I'll take care of the details. Maybe you're not sure what you want to do  quite yet but you know you have been bitten by the travel bug,I've got  ideas for every traveler that will fulfill your traveling desires.
  2. Experience. You  wouldn't buy a car without test driving it would you? I didn't think  so. The best way to know a destination, tour, resort, and understand  it's cultures etc. is go there and experience it for ourselves. Having  first hand knowledge of destinations allows me to provide you with the  insider scoop on where you want to go and what there is to do. I've  slept in the beds,eaten the food, swam in their waters and gone on their  adventures, just for YOU.
  3. Value. Travel  is an investment, I get that. Everyone wants to receive the most from  their vacation at the price that they can afford. Viva la Vida works  with what you have to create the best possible vacation at an incredible  value.

"Carmen  is hands down the best and most patient travel agent I have ever worked  with. This past summer my sister and I wanted to do a beach vacation  with my niece and nephew and Carmen found us the PERFECT spot at a great  price. We stayed at Captains Quarters in Myrtle Beach, we probably  would have never found this resort on our own. I have never seen the  kids so happy. They loved it. For us adults, it was so relaxing to just  go out every morning to our reserved umbrella and chairs on the beach. I  will definitely be using Carmen for all of my future travels!"

"My  husband and I had an incredible honeymoon at the Sandals Grande St.  Lucian! All thanks to Viva la Vida Travel! It was a postcard every  single day and we had a blast! Can't wait to book our next trip!"

"My  family and I just returned from a spring break to Puerto Vallarta. We  booked the trip last fall with Carmen at Viva la Vida Travel. I know  anyone can  book a trip on-line, but it doesn't come with the peace of  mind of having a knowledgeable agent assist you. Carmen made all the  arrangements and handled the details so we didn't have to worry about a  thing. It was fun working with Carmen because she has been to Puerto  Vallarta many times and was able to provide local insight and tips that  made our trip enjoyable. We are looking forward to planning our next  trip with Carmen!"
