The Viva La Vida Travel Difference


I believe that travel changes lives and that it plays an integral part in creating a fulfilled life.

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.

"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!"

What we love to do!

"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!"

"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!"
