About Diego Travel

Elevating travel with a thoughtful approach to service and planning, combining intuitive and meticulous attention to detail with efficient and purposeful itineraries.

Through our global network in the travel industry, we provide the best travel experience with our knowledge of available products, access to best rates, and the ability to VIP our clients.


Over a decade after founding a successful luxury tour and boat charter company called Marina La Bonita, we garnered a devout following of repeat clients who began to seek our assistance providing the same attention to detail and excellence in customer service to plan their complete vacations. Recognizing the need to provide exceptional travel planning, we established Diego Travel and became an Independent Affiliate of Departure Lounge, a member of the Virtuoso Network.

“I identify myself as a savvy traveller, and my wanderlust has taken on a new level of luxury, ease, and fulfillment, since I allowed Diego Travel to take the reigns! Maria sweats the small stuff for me, so I arrive at my storied destination ready to explore and play. She has an indescribable sixth sense in anticipating clients’ needs and curates itineraries to reflect exactly the experience you intend but are perplexed by creating. Her status as a true citizen of the world and mother of three gives her an invaluable, unique perspective. I reiterate, she thinks of everything. Imagine your travel agent texting you from her own holiday on the day of your departure a warning that your flight is delayed and the gate has changed! This team doesn’t miss a trick from the best flights to gluten free macaroons in the hotel room. I will not travel without Maria’s Midas touch, as it invokes the art of pleasure reminiscent of a previous era with all the modern conveniences.”
