Planning adventures invigorates me, and my goal is to listen attentively to your travel dreams and needs. I'll help craft customized itineraries, provide guidance based on years of experience, and ensure your journey goes smoothly and is memorable. I'll handle all the logistical details so you can just show up at the airport with your bags packed and passport in hand, not a worry in the world! Moreover, if you find my services satisfactory, spreading the word to friends and family would be greatly appreciated. If you'd like to discuss my approach, services, and fees further, I'd be happy to arrange a 30-minute consultation to see if I can help facilitate your next beach vacation. This will provide an opportunity to determine if I may be of assistance in planning your upcoming tropical adventures. I look forward to potentially working together to make your island dreams come true!

Customer Testimonials

Heavenly Honeymoon

Brenda did an amazing job with helping us plan our honeymoon. We decided on going to Sandals Barbados and it did not disappoint! Brenda took care of everything for us, including the flights as well as the room. She kept in touch with us throughout the few months leading up to the honeymoon to see if we had any questions or concerns. I would definitely use Brenda to help us plan another trip and I would highly recommend her to anyone! Thank you again Brenda!!

Unforgettable Experiences
Brenda has been here for us through our whole vacation. From getting the ball rolling to getting the flights, booking our Sandals rooms and helping with the excursions, Brenda did it all.


We were in constant communication and if an issue arose, I could call, text or email her at anytime. This was a bonus to having a local agent. Thank you for having an agent like Brenda !

Sandals Negril Jamaica exceeded our expectations in every way. The service was exceptional, and the food offered a wide variety of delicious menu items. Brenda from SunRay Travel played a crucial role in planning our trip and handling our immigration forms and passport details with expertise. Thanks to her seamless efforts, our journey was hassle-free. We fully recommend working with Brenda and SunRay Travel for an unforgettable experience.

Jamaica to St. Lucia Switch Up
Brenda did an amazing job setting up our trip to Jamaica. We had planned to go to St Lucia but our resort shut down due to COVID 2 weeks before our trip. Not only did Brenda set us up in Jamaica on short notice, she got us an amazing 2500 square foot suite with two bedrooms, three baths , full kitchen, and a pool table. The balcony was also huge with an amazing view of the ocean. I can't thank Brenda enough for saving our vacation and going above and beyond to make our trip amazing. Thank you so much. Dom

Last Minute Addition
Brenda did an amazing job coordinating our trip! We were a late add on to a larger group of friends going that she had already set up! She was able to get us all squared away like we had booked when they did! We all had an amazing time and it was zero stress for us trying to get things scheduled last minute! We may be states away from her but when needed we will use her again!

Professional, Knowledgeable, and Extremely Helpful
We have use Brenda auto at SunRay travel for the last two years. Some of our travel I have been easy..... but others were complicated as she handled them extremely professional and quick. she always answers the phone no matter how many times I’ve called with questions or having to make changes. Or knowledge of the products and locations of where we’re going have been extremely helpful. The greatest thing for me is the time I say if I have it in her book our travel plans from rental cars to hotels to our flights. I recommend Brenda to handle anyone’s travel!

Honeymoon Bliss in Cancun
If only we could give her a higher rating! Brenda planned our honeymoon at the most amazing resort in Cancun. Since we had never been before, she had the most fantastic recommendations.

She booked us a VIP suite, business-class airplane tickets, and a honeymoon package, all under budget! Even after all things were booked, she noticed that our resort had a promotion providing free, private transportation to and from the airport, and we received additional savings.

When we couldn't get in touch with the local travel operator for our day trip and boat ride to Isla Mujeres, she ended up getting our answers and got it settled right away on a Sunday evening. She truly cares about not only planning a special vacation for you but also making sure you continue to have the best experience and no worries during your trip! A wonderful partner to work with and we will certainly be using her again and telling our friends all about her!
