Honeymooners - A Fabulous Costa Rica Experience! January 2021​

A wonderful review from a lovely couple who had a honeymoon to remember!

They decided to go to Costa Rica and stayed at the Secrets Papagayo. Here is their review of their experience:

“The trip went perfectly. The travel, pickups, resort, weather, views, excursion, food, you name it. I would totally recommend this destination for any couple looking for somewhere peaceful and not too busy. They were at 30% capacity, they said, so we didn’t have to RSVP for dinner or wait in lines at the restaurants. We could also find great seating around the pool and ocean side without issue. I loved that the resort was smaller. The rooms are scattered all over the hillside, and it makes it so much prettier and private. It allows for trees and greenery rather than concrete. The customer service there was amazing as well. We did end up going on an excursion and we loved it: rainforest, horseback riding, waterfalls, volcanoes, personal and private tour. We booked it with the merchants on the beach and it was excellent. The only thing we wish we would have done was go on more, but we maxed our budget. The beach was smaller, as the resort was on a hillside, and the sand was volcanic sand, so it was a mix of black and white, so the water wasn’t the clearest. There were clearer waters and big beaches not too far the merchants said. The vacation lived up to and exceeded expectations. We would definitely go back and recommend it, but we also would like to eventually go to other places as well.” 

Family Trip to Peru 2022​

A great review of an unforgettable trip!

“Leigh Ann and Carson Travel built an unforgettable trip of a lifetime for our family. We started our trip in the Amazon jungle of Peru, staying in the amazing Tree House Lodge. The tree houses were a unique lodging experience, immersing us in the jungle. The excursions from the lodge were amazing with incredibly knowledgeable guides who were just as excited to see the many animals as we were. From feeding monkeys, to fishing for piranha, to seeing the pink river dolphins of the Amazon, it was all incredible! Our trip continued from there to the mountains of the Andes. The tour group Leigh Ann set us up with was great. They were able to rearrange our trip at the last minute to avoid local protests so that we were able to experience everything we had traveled for. Our lodgings in Cusco and Ages Calientes were superb. The hike on the Inca Trail was challenging, but the views of the mountains, waterfalls, and, finally, of Machu Picchu were more incredible than expected. It was a trip our family will never forget.”

June 2023 - Yellowstone & Tetons

“Good morning Leigh Ann,     We had a trip of a lifetime.  It was great.  The itinerary was set up perfectly to see all of the park without being rushed.  We took one (rainy) day and traveled outside the park to Cody Wy, The drive there was very scenic and the weather cleared up for a perfect afternoon..   

We got some advice from a waiter at a restaurant to take a drive through Lamar Valley to see wildlife..we saw 9 bears that evening…along with antelope, mountain goats, bison and elk.  

The Grand Tetons were unbelievable.  The pics of that day were taken from the patio restaurant at the Jackson Lake Lodge.  We sat there for hours..lol

We ended the trip with a concert at Red Rocks amphitheatre.  


We really appreciate all of your help on the planning of this trip. Tracy documented each day of the trip on Facebook and we have had several friends reach out to us to ask about planning the same trip.   We have given several people your name!  


Thanks again…Here are a few pics.”- Bob S.

“We’ve been working with Leigh Ann and Carson Travels for 4 years now! That one person we can call to say, Hey Leigh Ann, we want to go here! Her response is always, “I’m on it” My wife and I are always excited to see her email come in with our quotes for the vacation of our dreams! From multiple trips to Jamacia, Walt Disney World and soon to Punta Cana! We can travel feeling safe and confident that everything is correct when on vacation using Carson Travels! Even when we have had to cancel or change travel dates, Leigh Ann is always willing to help us reschedule! We have always talked about going to Walt Disney World with our children and Leigh Ann made it happen for us! With Leigh Ann on our side, we just packed our bags, drove to the airport and the rest is history! BEST FAMILY TRIP EVER!  We appreciate you, Leigh Ann!!

Travel Planning Fee


Our travel planning fee is designed to give you the confidence you need in planning any travel today. This fee is now required when we begin planning any travel for our clients. The fee will be applied to the client’s travel booking once it is finalized. We work tirelessly to give our clients the best service and the knowledge of everything they need to know to travel in today’s post-COVID travel world. This fee allows us to work with our clients diligently on their behalf from the beginning of planning, getting all the details of what they value the most in their experiences, finalizing all payments and paperwork, keeping them updated on all items that they need to be aware of for their travel, and making sure they have everything they need to depart safely. In the event that there is a cancellation or emergency with the client, we will be there to assist with insurance claims, speak with vendors on their behalf, and help them in any cancellation needs they may have. The planning fee covers this assistance.

This fee is non-refundable. It will be applied to the initial deposit of the travel planning, per trip. Each trip will require a new planning fee for each client. In the event the client decides not to travel once our planning services have started and the research has been completed on their behalf, the fee covers our time and research. If a client has to cancel a trip, the fee becomes the agency cancellation fee. This can be a covered claim under the client’s insurance when they decide to purchase our 3rd party insurance (Allianz) and have to cancel their travel for a covered insurance reason on their policy.
