Where would you go if you had to pick up and leave tomorrow? Why?
If I was to do a quick trip, I’d go to Le Blanc Spa Resort. I love everything about it: the pampering, beach, butler service and it’s also just really easy to get to flight wise and is close to the airport. If it was a long trip, I’d love to go back to St. Lucia since that’s where I got married.
What is your favorite excursion or activity while traveling and what would you recommend to a couple or family/group?
I would recommend a variety of excursions. Beach and watersports, a catamaran cruise, scuba diving and hobie cat sailing are great. It’s also a lot of fun checking out the historical sites from each destination. I like to suggest unique excursions, like in Cabo, whale watching is really popular and the Mayan Ruins are popular when traveling to Riviera Maya.
What did you learn from your worst travel experience or best?
Worst was when we went to Riviera Maya the wrong time of the year. We went the end of May/beginning of June and it was super rainy. I suggest asking your agent the best time to go since you don’t want rainy weather or a season where it’s really busy. Also, think about the purpose of your trip and make sure you pick the right property based on needs.
What is your top recommendation of hotels?
I love AMResorts, especially Dreams and Breathless properties. They really cater to American needs and they take pride in taking care of their guests. The quality is amazing and they are always consistent.
What are must haves in your carry on?
I have to have a sun hat, a book, comfortable sandals and a swimsuit.
