My Background

My passion for travel was fostered in my childhood, with my family using travel as a classroom. But my appetite for experiencing new destinations continued as a young adult, living and studying in Spain and traveling extensively in Europe.  I have a degree in International Relations and Latin American studies, which has suited my career in travel and specialization in Latin America. 

In 2011 was honored to be named to Travel Agent Magazine’s Top 35 Under 30 list.  In 2012, I became the youngest advisor to be named to Travel+Leisure Magazine’s A-List of the World’s Top Travel Agents and have been named to the list every year since. In 2013 I received the Virtuoso Rising Star award, one of my proudest recognitions.

This was my first time using a travel advisor. Working with Beth and her team was an outstanding experience. She took the time to ask about our interests and expectations and turned that information into our perfect vacation. She was patient in helping me with my concerns and was attentive to every detail. It couldn't have been planned any better. There is no way I could have done this on my own. I would not hesitate to contact Beth again and I've already recommended her to several friends.

Our itinerary was complicated and seemed impossible to us, but not to Beth. She was able to book us on a cruise ship that had already told me they were full, get us wonderful hotels, train and plane reservations and all at much less than we would have paid on our own. She was knowledgeable and understanding of our needs and anxieties. I can't wait to see what wonders she can perform for our next trip!

Beth Jenkins is the perfect travel agent! Very importantly, she LISTENS---in order to make the best possible match in terms of meeting her clients' expectations. Beth recently booked a trip for us in Provence. We'd never been there before, but everything she booked worked out beautifully and was exactly what we wanted, where we wanted it and at the price we wanted to pay.

She's a star, and I'll continue to count on her for our vacation planning.

Beth planned the perfect trip for us! She really listened to us when we told her how we like to travel and the kinds of things we like to see and do. She planned this trip on very short notIce and was very adaptable and accomodating throughout the planning process. The trip was so well balanced....we had plenty of time on our own. At the same time our guided tours, dining experiences and cooking class added so much to our impressions of the people and country. Our hotels were wonderful....great locations, lovely, clean and comfortable rooms and terrific service. The staff were all helpful and made us feel welcome. Our guides/teachers were wonderful....Salome in Toledo, Leyend, Esther and Fanny in San Sebastián and Jordi, Anna and Nuria and Jeff in Barcelona all shared the joys of this magical country with us.

Beth planned a wonderful Christmas trip for our family to the Azul Sensatori resort in the Riviera Maya in Mexico. We had 11 of us ranging in ages from 4 to 70 plus and we all enjoyed the facilities, food and drinks. Beth did a great job of finding out what we were all looking to do and helping us select an all inclusive resort that had something for each of us to enjoy. We would recommend The Azul Sensatori for both families as well as couples as there is something for everyone. Beth works hard to make sure that your needs are met to the smallest detail.

By: jenn


Reviewed on: 16 Jan 2016

The trip was planned very last minute and Beth did an incredible job getting it done and working with my schedule. She was pleasant an friendly and tried her best. We loved Macchu Picchu Peru and had an amazing guide there for the first few days- Juan Carlos, that really made our trip. We had a very bad experience with the guide in Lake Titicaca. He knew the history but was very negative and this put a dark cloud over our time there. Bolivia day transfer/ group trip was a disaster... Besides for that we loved Bolivia even though the caliber of guides and service was not the same as Peru ( we knew this going into it). I would recommend the travel agency give more information about all the potential altitude issues as we were close to 15,000 in Bolivia and it definitely affected our time. Overall great trip but would recommend adding more "unique" experiences that are off the beaten tourist path. Beth did a great job.

As usual, she was mindful of my budget and the style of accommodations that we prefer and was able to present me with a number of options. We decided on the Mandarin Oriental and it did not disappoint. The room was fabulous and by Beth letting them know the reason for the trip, the hotel provided several complimentary treats, etc., to celebrate the occasion. Beth was also helpful in booking spa appointments at the hotel and even making last minute changes when we were a bit off schedule.

Perfect 15th Anniversary Spot

By: Colleen Y

Beth and the team were instrumental in helping us to find the perfect spot to spend our 15th anniversary. We had a lot of demands, and Beth recommended the Banyan Tree Mayakoba. After returning from our trip, we decided there can't possibly have been a better place for everything we needed. The resort was the perfect mix of private, romantic and secluded but with great shared community areas and a wide variety of resturants. The bikes to ride around the resort were probably our favorite part! We spent a ton of time researching the restaurants and picking the ones we wanted to try, and Beth and team helped to make all the reservations before we even got there (which was great since some of the restaurants were booking up). You also can't beat all the perks and upgrades you get when working with a travel agent. The complimentary breakfast at Oriente was amazing and after that, we usually were stuffed until dinner time!

Beth, who is great, was on vacation, so I was assisted by Daniela, who did a superb job at a late date finding me a good escape. Excellence el Carmen was a delightful place that suited my needs. There are problems you need to let other travelers know about, however--none of which unsettled this single man who is 66. Others might disagree. First, they have to work on the beach every day with tractors and shovels cleaning up the sea weed. That's distracting and at times smelly. Second, the food was average. The service was superb in all aspects. Thanks again for great work, Daniela and Beth.

Beth planned a cruise of the Aegean and Adriatic for my wife's birthday, and another couple joined us. We had an excellent time. The ship she recommended was exactly what we wanted, and the on-shore arrangements -- a few special excursions and hotels at the beginning and end -- were just right. Beth has never disappointed us when helping us arrange travel. We will continue to seek her help in the future.

Beth planned an amazing trip for us to Iceland in January of 2013. She took the time to ask about our interests and abilities. With that, she set up a fantastic trip that made the most of our time and opportunities. The perfect balance for an active 20-year old and her not-so-active mother. Beth made sure we didn't have any regrets. We will be talking about that trip for our entire lives.

I can't say enough great things about Beth. My daughter and son-in-law used Beth when planning their honeymoon. Unfortunately, there was a medical emergency during the trip. We contacted Beth and explained what had happened. She was terrific. She contacted the operators of the excursions they had booked and cancelled some of the excursions and rescheduled others when appropriate. What could have been a disaster, ended up being a lovely, memorable trip. When it came time to plan an adventure trip with friends, we immediately thought of  Beth. We have found her wonderful to work with. She is extremely knowledgeable , efficient and professional. She listened to our opinions and developed an itinerary which is exactly what we all wanted.   We look forward to planning many more trips with her in the future.

Our english speaking guide and driver were extremely professional and accommodating. We felt safe and well toured everywhere we went. We were even lucky enough to get to see some special sights off the beaten path which we would not have been privy to had we traveled on our own.

Everyone always had a smile on their face and was eager to help and answer any questions. Secrets Silversands was one of the cleanest places I've ever been to everything was immaculate. The food was fabulous at all the resturants and buffet that we tried. We never had to wait for drinks someone was always poolside or at the bar ready to serve.

Although the pool was gorgeous, my husband and I spent most of our time on the beach. The servers were attentive and the drinks (even if they were non-alcoholic) were perfect. We wouldn't recommend any excisions on the island (especially boating trips). We enjoyed the cooking lesson at lunch on the beach and the human sized chess board. The horse back riding was also fun although we wouldn't recommend paying for the two hour tour. The free 30 minute ride was enough. Our "couples massage" was absolutely fabulous. Thanks to Beth, we were able to take the perfect trip before our little one arrives!
