Desiree Hall started in the travel business shortly before her first trip to Jamaica in 2001. Since then she’s traveled to many Caribbean and Mexican destinations for both business and pleasure. But in her mind, the business is a pleasure!
In 2004 she opened Paradise Vacations in Bowling Green, KY. For 6 years she ran a successful store front agency providing uncompromising service to her growing list of clients. People coming in to discuss their travel plans were greeted with a smile and a huge array of brochures and photographs of tropical destinations.
After 6 years she moved with her husband to Belton TX where she now works from a home based office serving her loyal clients as well as a growing list of referrals from satisfied customers.
“Working from home gives me the time and flexibility to give all my clients the attention they deserve. People have different schedules and I try to fit theirs instead of the other way around.”
She has also narrowed the scope of her business to focusing on all-inclusive vacations to Mexico and the Caribbean. Having been to Hawaii and Europe on several occasions, she still plans trips and tours to these destinations, but most of her business centers around “romance” travel to tropical beach destinations.
“Honeymoon and anniversary trips are something we look forward to for years. Why take a chance on an unknown source or random reviews from someone you don’t know? You spend months planning the wedding and reception, working with professional florists, bakeries, and wedding planners. Why not leave the honeymoon to the professionals as well?”
“My favorite places are Jamaica and the Caribbean Coast of Mexico. Both of these are very comfortable places to be with beautiful beaches and resorts, amazing natural attractions for the adventurer, and some of the warmest, friendliest people I’ve ever met. I especially love to introduce these areas to first time visitors. Just like the Jamaica tourism slogan says,…”Once you go, you know!”
“I’m lucky enough to have been many beautiful places, but there’s always more to see.... Once the travel bug bites, there’s no going back!”
