Cuba, Destination Weddings and Honeymoons

About Elsa: After changing majors several times in college, followed by some soul searching as to what I wanted to do with myself, I figured out that the one thing I knew I loved was travel! I started my travel career in Philadelphia as a Vacation Travel Consultant at Rosenbluth Travel on Walnut Street. It was a busy and exciting place where I learned many things about planning vacations and how precious a great vacation is for the client. For almost three decades, I have shared my love of travel with clients and friends. Travel is my passion and purpose. Facilitating a great travel experience is my goal for every one of my clients. I also love scouting out destinations and sharing my experiences with clients and providing personal recommendations for their trips. I was blessed to start my travel adventures as a young teen, travelling throughout Europe with my aunt. Since then, I have visited most countries in Europe, including Greece and Turkey, sailed on many cruises, swam the beaches of the Caribbean and Cuba, explored much of Mexico, Central America, South America , Hawaii, the U.S. and Canada. In addition to my love of travel, I love parties! So looking to combine my 2 favorite things, travel and parties, in 2007 I completed a Destination Wedding Specialist Course. That same year I began to work on my first Destination Wedding….my daughter’s! Since my daughter's wedding in 2008, I have planned an average of 6 destination weddings per year. I do not over extend my services and assure that all couples and their guests get my full attention. I have a long list of happy clients which include professional sports and television celebrities. I specialize in Destination Weddings and Honeymoons, Cuba, the Caribbean and Mexico, European Independent travel, as well as Group and Family Travel.


I am a Cuban American and just recently traveled to Cuba in October 2015 to experience the “changes" in travel, first hand. It was a truly amazing and enlightening experience. The natural beauty of the island, combined with the European style of the major cities and topped off by the energy and friendliness of the people, make it the must see destination in 2016! I have also participated in several training sessions regarding selling travel to Cuba. I consider myself a Cuba travel expert and very excited to assist travelers in visiting this special place that has been lost in time.
