About Us

Our Values

Travel often.

We believe it’s important to scope out the destinations we recommend. We’ll visit resorts, test out the food, and even bring our kids along to make sure we only send clients to the best spots.

Own the details.

We plan each trip like it is our own. Our advisors are meticulous about everything, from calling ahead about food allergies to securing adjacent plane seats for families and more.

Be available.

We take pride in our high level of customer service. If you have a travel emergency, you can call us at any hour of the day, and we’ll be available to help you solve the problem.

Give back.

We value being involved in our communities and donating a percentage of profits to organizations we believe in. This year, our donations go to Phoenix Remix Animal Rescue.

Eventually, Jaime decided it was time to fulfill her dream of owning her own agency, and Vacation Vibes Travel was born.

Jaime’s other passion is giving back to the community. In 2008 she started a charity, Forever Angels, which raised funds for families who had children suffering from serious medical conditions. Jaime supports multiple animal rescues and currently sits on the board for Joining Forces Saving Lives, a local non-profit group that traps, neuters, and releases cats to control the pet population. Jaime has won several awards and grants for her volunteer work.

Jaime enjoys spending time with her family and friends, traveling the world, and doing anything and everything animal-related.
