My Background

I am a bilingual, passionate traveler with over 20 years of professional travel experience and expertise. I was born and raised in Lima, Peru and currently reside in Southern California.

I design tailor-made vacations for the discerning traveler, including fully customized luxury travel, adventure trips, family and multi-generational travel, milestone celebrations, small groups and exclusive romantic getaways. As well as being a Latin America Specialist, I design vacations to many of the worlds top destinations.

Being an independent traveler, wife, friend, and mother of two boys, I can relate to those seeking a private or romantic getaway, an adventurous trip to a far-flung destination, a reunion with friends at a fabulous resort, or a family vacation that caters to every member of the family.

Selecting the destination and travel experience which is uniquely right for you is my specialty.

I look forward to planning your next travel adventure!

Best. Travel. Agent. Ever.

We have now booked 2 trips with Rosalena. The first one was our Honeymoon and she went above and beyond our expectations. Rosalena is phenomenal at what she does and so incredibly knowledgable. She does a fantastic job of coordinating any sort of dream vacation you wish to take. One of my favorite thing that Rosalena does is provide activities/ excursions and hotels options that will make your trip even more unique and special. Rosalena’s attentiveness is truly unmatched. She takes the stress out of planning and tailors the trip to exactly what you didn’t even know you needed. She is very professional, reliable and makes traveling that much more enjoyable and seamless. It also really helps that she is so well traveled herself, to add her personal touch to your luxury travel.I would highly recommend Rosalena for all your travel needs! She really is the best.

Rosalena handled all the travel details of our family's destination wedding at Dreams in Cabo San Lucas. All the air, transfers, and room assignments for guests from around the country went smoothly.Large groups are notorious for last minute changes and switching around, and ours was no exception. Rosalena handled all our changes with professionalism and good humor, making sure that everyone's needs were met. The wedding experience at Dreams turned out better than we could have hoped, and we are happy to recommend Rosalena to other brides and their families.

Rosalena was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. We knew the property where we wanted to stay; however, we wanted to get the best deal possible. I'm not used to working with travel agents as I do all my own research and bookings on the internet but I had heard about Virtuoso and decided to give them a try.  Rosalena was not only able to match the property's internet rate but also include extras including breakfast for two, champagne in room and a $100 spa credit.  In addition, the Elite status that Rosalena and Virtuoso have with Rosewood allowed us to get a complimentary upgrade to the next room category if available on check in.  But Rosalena went above and beyond and requested that we get the best room possible so we were able to get a 3 level upgrade.  That would be "Virtually" unheard of if we didn't book through a "Virtuoso" travel agent....especially Rosalena with Cadence.  I will definitely use her for hotel bookings on future travel.

Luxury Service and Expertise


Reviewed on: 22 Oct 2014

To secure a luxury vacation, working with Rosalena has proven to be the best investment we can make. Rosalena planned a trip through the Greek Isles for us a few years ago, so she’s familiar with my wife’s exquisite taste and preference for understated and culturally sensitive elegance. Her package for us to French Polynesia was superb. First she worked with me to organize a surprise celebration, making herself available at all hours. Then she provided me with sound and accurate advice highlighting all possibilities and patiently, in great detail, worked me through them until we found the perfect package. During our adventure, she maintained communication with all resorts and managed to secure a few extra upgrades that became the icing on the cake. It became obvious she’s a well-respected colleague in the Four Seasons Bora Bora and the Le Taha’a Resort and Spa. We look forward to more memorable adventures thanks to her expertise, patience, attention to detail, and all around class!

Very efficient, right on target

I requested a very short notice stay. She managed to arrange everything on time. Because I booked in such a hurry, I wasn t sure it was the right place for me, but it was EXACTLY what I had in mind. Thank you Rosalena!!!

In August, I traveled with three friends, two of whom live in the UK., on a small group escorted tour of Ireland, arranged by Rosalena. She did a fantastic job of coordinating our last minute early booking, as well as our air tickets and transfers so we could all meet in Dublin. She kept us up-to-date with email reminders for final payments, vouchers, and also guided us to choose affordable travel insurance. Having a competent and congenial travel advisor taking care of all the details for us made this an easy and enjoyable experience

Excellent service and advise.

Rosalena booked my flights and lodging, a perfect combination made for an easy and pleasurable stay in Peru's capital city. Everything went according to plan, from the flight out of LAX to the accommodations in central Miraflores, ending with the return flight on Latam from LIma. Definitely will do this again next year.

Machu Picchu a Dream Come True

By: Lucy

Reviewed on: 11 Sep 2017

Rosalena is a professional advisor! She gave us information about the area we wanted to visit. Even though we had a short period of time, she made it all fit. She made arrangements for flights, our guides, car, train, bus, lodging , etc. Because of Rosalena's expertise, our trip flowed beautifully. Our guide picked my daughter and I at the airport and took us to our beautiful hotel/s. We felt very special because they treated us like "royalty." From early morning to the end of our excursion/s, our guide/s were there for us: answering our questions, giving us historical information, buying our tickets before we got to our destination, meals . . . I am so thankful to Rosalena. This trip has been unforgettable because of her expertise. We communicated by phone and e-mail and she took care of EVERYTHING! I am forever grateful!

There's a reason I call Rosalena "My Travel Agent". Speaking from someone who has booked vacations by myself online with travel sites, and have used Costco travel. I will never do it alone again. Rosalena is a travel expert. Prior to booking my last with with the her, she pretty much told me what to expect and she was spot on. I have and will continue to refer friends to her. Thanks again Rosalena looking for to my next trip.

Trip to Florida

Reviewed on: 25 Jan 2018

Rosalena is the consummate professional and understands our needs as well as we do. Our recent trip to Florida was an elder care mission. The Florida trip was not a pleasure trip and she helped us make the most of our dollars. However, most of our trips are true vacations. Rosalena excels at getting us the best flights, seat assignments, car rental deals and hotel accomodations. I would recommend her to anyone!
