About Laurie

I am your professional vacation planner. I specialize in coordinating group travel adventures for groups of all sizes from 4 to 400. Whether a family is creating an inter-generational trip, or it is an organization that wants to plan an adventure together, I can create a personalized itinerary that allows them to accomplish all of their vacation goals.

Years ago, a family vacation meant spending a week cramped in the car with hot, tired parents and siblings. Today, group travel and extended family vacations are increasing in popularity as the options have become affordable and easier to access.

It’s now possible to create a private getaway for your closest family members and friends, or group allowing everyone in your travel party to find something that they enjoy along the way.

My clients love the fact that I plan each vacation as if it were my own. I believe that the best experience lies in the details, and the planning process is as stress-free and easy as possible, which is why I work to create customized itineraries for my clients. Whether it’s an all-inclusive resort, planning a culinary and wine tour to a new country, or designing a unique villa experience, I am committed to making sure that my clients have the trip that they have been dreaming about.

As a Certified Jamaican Travel Specialist, I love to recommend this destination to my clients. I am completely in love with this beautiful land and the friendly people who call it home. My clients directly benefit from my personal travel experience to this country, as I can give reliable recommendations for hotels, restaurants and excursions.

Ah Weh Vacations developed out of my love for researching the next great destination, planning that big trip, and exploring the amazing world around us! Travelling has become my passion, and I’m excited to help you find the perfect place for you and your family. I want you to not only arrive at your destination, but to experience it, whether it’s at an all-inclusive beach vacation, a Caribbean cruise, a European adventure, or something more unique and exotic.

Perhaps a villa in Jamaica, complete with a private beach or secluded pool as well as a butler and cook, sounds like the perfect vacation for you and your family, or maybe your group is looking for that perfect unique golfing get-away, or maybe you and your friends or just that special someone need to escape everyday life for a few days. This is all possible when you work with a qualified travel professional.
