Who is an Inside Traveler?
To have the most fun on these trips you must be an Inside Traveler or have the desire to become one. Our trips are energetic and require the ability to walk for 3 hours at a time, taking small breaks. You have to like sightseeing (historic buildings, museums, beautiful landscapes), and a little boating and spelunking. Also, an Inside Traveler is adventurous and is ready to pack and go on the spur of the moment. She likes to observe the local scene: buses, traffic, people, crafts, and food. He is curious about and accepts differences, as well as having a preference to participate in small group activities. If, when you travel you would rather take the bus or the train instead of a taxi you are probably a true Inside Traveler. If you're interested in exploring and hiking, in an exciting adventure, and want to experience and learn more about the core of a culture: its people, food, religion, politics, language, arts, music, daily living, customs, habits, and entertainment, this trip is for you! On the other hand, if you just wish to stay at the beach or the pool, taking it easy, and resting, you're welcome to do this too! There is plenty to do at the beach!
Welcome to Inside Travel!
you want to feel the soul of a place, Lila can take you there. Visiting
Latin America with Lila is like visiting an old friend. She makes you
feel like you are at home in another world. We went places the tour guides
won't take you-- like the marvelous ethnic beach communities, the outdoor
musicians, drums, fried crab cakes...are today, my most vivid memories
of Puerto Rico. I am sure I would have missed it if not for Lila.
con Lila a Europa, Santo Domingo, Méjico y Puerto Rico ha sido mi experiencia
más grata, enriquecedora, emocionante y de una gran satisfacción. Sus
viajes persiguen un auténtico desarrollo como individuos. No existe ninguna
sensación de que algo falta o está incompleto en la planificación de sus
viajes. Visitar estos lugares de tanta arquitectura, artesanías, playas
y costas, disfrutar comidas típicas, compartir tan cerca con gente de
otras culturas, revivir las fantasías reflejadas en estos lugares es como
transportarse a esa época.
Sentir contacto directo con la naturaleza, es mi mayor atracción. Viajando
con Lila, se logra experimentar un profundo sentimiento de paz. Profesional,
madre, sensible y conocedora de varios idiomas, Lila se interesa porque
haya suficiente excitación y estímulo para que el viaje sea interesante
y que se disfrute con alegría. Hace que uno se sienta bien, hasta poniendo
en juego nuestras habilidades. En sus viajes, Lila logra que despertemos
un amor apasionado por conocer y experimentar algo nuevo y diferente.
Su estilo único de viajar hace que nos sintamos felices, seguros y libres.
Más aún, lo suficientemente estimulados para seguir: "Viajando con Lila"
donde cada momento vivido es grato para recordar.
first time in Puerto Rico was a trip to a whole new world - from beautiful
Old San Juan
to the majestic rain forest El Yunque. My favorite place was La Parguera
on the southwest side of the island, with its crystal clear
blue water, interesting nightlife, and relaxing atmosphere. I only wish
we had more vacation days.
with Lila - Magnificent, Unforgettable We've hiked and climbed mountains
of Alaska, British Columbia and Georgia and run the Freedom Trail in Boston,
the capitol in Washington DC, the streets of Manhattan, the Italian market
in Philadelphia, the sea wall in Vancouver and Joshua National Monument
in California. We
have shared stories with locals in the pubs and diners in Alaska, sampled
one another' seafood with others (until then, strangers) sharing our table
in a Boston restaurant, picnicked with alligators in the swamps and wild
horses on Cumberland Island, found the world's best Neapolitan pastry
in Greenwich (New York) and visited Monet's exquisite gardens through
his art in Montreal. Travel with Lila is like a quest for rare and exquisite
jewels in people and places that are, often, not written up in travel
guides. With Lila, you'll find them. Lila, also, has an uncanny sense
of what others will find appealing and plans accordingly. Her life zest
is contagious, making each new experience unforgettable, a treasure for
a lifetime. I'd do it again and again and again!
Our trip with Lila was truly one of our greatest experiences and one
which we will always remember. We
didn't just see Mexico, we experienced it from the inside and rubbed elbows
with common Mexicans at local inns and popular local spots. We found out-of-the-way
gems like our motel at Chichen-Itza.
It had two pools and all the amenities of a five star tourist resort without
Lila thanks for organizing the trips we have gone together. I have thoroughly enjoyed them. Going to a new place with you is an adventure. You really think of many interesting corners, exquisite dishes, affordable and quality shopping places. Remember camping in Florida? We got soaked in our fancy tent, and your tiny tent was dry as a hot rock! We learned! I have so many vivid and cheerful memories of the places we have visited together thanks to you, Lila. …Claudio
have been on trips with Lila to Cumberland Island, the Yucatan,
and Puerto Rico. In every instance we saw the mainstream tourist attractions
and still had time to take advantage
of serendipitous events,
like the local circus in Tulúm, Mexico.
flexible in the agenda, so that individual
tastes could be honored, like our
wishes for more shopping and snorkeling. She has personally been to all
the places she takes her women's groups,
so she knows where
the accommodations are secure, and
the locations safe. Her trips are
economical, yet you stay in places where the more affluent locals stay.
We did not feel like we went on a
guided tour; it was more like visiting a friend who showed us around.
favorite trip with mami was a 3-week trip to Europe - it was FABULOUS!
One of the best parts about traveling
with her is that she does a lot of research about what to see,
where to stay, where to eat in each
city you visit before the trip. This saves tons of time and makes the
trip so worry free. There is NEVER a dull moment on a trip with mami.
She makes sure that you see ALL of the cool places - and she makes it
so much fun!!! Sunup to sundown! I wish I could take her on all of my
