Can anybody suggest a good Huntsville travel agent that knows the Caribbean and Mexico?

My wife and I are wanting to take trip to one of the islands or to Mexico but are having a difficult time deciding where to go...there are just so many options it's overwhelming.

And then once you pick a destination the resort/hotel options are endless as well.

Thought a good agent could give us some guidance.

Thanks for your help!

Wow. I don't even know of any that are still in business.

The internet put 98% of them out of business.

Yea that's what I was afraid of. There appears to be a few still in town but I'm guessing they do mostly business travel.

Didn't want to pick one blindly...was hoping somebody had used one of them recently.

Getting analysis paralysis looking at all the options on the internet.

We've used Sterling Travel.
They arranged a trip for us last summer to San Francisco. I usually book stuff online, but we've never been to the area before. We knew we wanted to see 1)SF, 2)Yosemite and 3)redwoods, but I had no idea about specifics. They saved us some money by booking our flight into San Jose instead of SF, were familiar with hotel rates, where to stay near Yosemite etc.

Thanks Southlander...I will give them a call and see what their knowledge of the Caribbean is.

Same here and this since 1992.
Maybe there are some better prices via the internet, but I do prefer good service in person over cheap no-service-internet.
I just call them with my needs of where and when, and they do the rest for me.

Thanks FAL50...will definitely give them a call.

Is there a particular agent that you and Southlander have worked with that you liked or just whoever they routed you to from the phone or when you went in?
