50th Wedding Aniversary Celebration
We were looking for a place our whole family could go to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. This meant finding a place children, teenagers and adults could all enjoy. Karen gave us several options and we settled on Tulum, MX. Karen made all the air travel, local transportation and lodging arrangements for us. Gave us good suggestions of things to do there. Everything was provided as promised. She is a great vacation planner.
