Meet Laura, one of our travel experts for Aruba.
For over 8 years I've owned and operated CARE Travel, Vacations by Laura. I started from the ground up and have successfully planned and arranged numerous vacations, many of which were honeymoons and 15-20 destination weddings.
As a travel professional, I'm not only your best advocate, I protect your precious vacation dollars and hours. I’ve been there, seen the resorts, know the locations and I take time to get to know you as well as possible. So I do a great job at matching you with the right experience.
I have great relationships with travel suppliers so often times I'm able to get you great perks, added amenities, VIP treatment and much more....that in itself is enough to beat the online giants.
Close your eyes and picture where your next vacation is spent, then get ahold of me and share you dream. Together, we'll find your paradise!
Testimonials from Laura's clients:
"All I can say is WOW and thank you to Laura from Change of Latitude Travel.
I had no idea where to go and she had wonderful suggestions for me being very attentive to what I wanted. My vacation was superb with all of the tips from her. The resort itself was exceptionally beautiful and the entertainment every night was fantastic.
Laura told me that if I took lessons on the paddle boards and the catamaran the very first day that I was there that I could use them whenever I wanted (as long as they were available) the whole time that I was there.
She also told me that around lunch time there would be carts around the resort that would have something special everyday so that if you wanted to hang by the pool or by the beach and not get out of your bathing suit, you could try Jamaican Heritage food. Thank you for the Great advise. I really enjoyed the jerk chicken (with no extra spices) and the coconut juice (milk).
I know from now on I am not going to try to use the internet and go strictly to her for all of my travel wants and needs!
"I was greatly pleased with Laura's quality of service. She listened to our requests and requirements and recommended great destination wedding resorts for us to choose from. She organized all the travel and lodging in Mexico for 35 of our guests. Laura was very flexible with individual guest requests, and got a great rates for my guests. She played the liaison between myself and the wedding coordinator at the resort. This lead to a quite effortless, seamless process. I was also very impressed with how she continued to support my guests through their travel to, and during their stay in Mexico. I would highly recommend working with Laura she is very professional and personable. She made the entire experience very easy, which is key when planning a destination wedding!"
"Laura was a delight to work with. I 100% recommend her! Everything went smooth and all involved were very pleased with Laura and the services she provided. We will definitely use her again in the future."
"A Change of Latitude took care of our every need for our destination wedding and honeymoon. We took our time interviewing travel agents and after meeting Laura we knew we found the perfect person to help us...she help us choose the destination (Jamaica), the resort (Sandals White House), and connected us with an awesome wedding planner, after all of that, she made sure we and all of our guests got VIP treatment during our weeks stay. I would recommend A Change of Latitude HIGHLY if you want personalized service and treatment from the beginning to end."
"I worked with Laura from A Change of Latitude to plan my destination wedding Riviera Maya, Mexico. The resort she helped us choose was Excellence, and it was AMAZING! Laura is very knowledgeable and will do what ever it takes to make sure you are happy. She made the entire process stress free. All of our guests found her to be very helpful as well. I would definitely recommend using A Change of Latitude for any of your travel needs! We plan on taking a separate honeymoon in November to Hawaii, and we'll be using A Change of Latitude for that trip too!"
