Best in Event Planning!

Carmela and her team did an exceptional job planning and coordinating my wife's 50th birthday in Tulum, Mexico. She took care of our 30+ guests and their travel bookings (air, hotel and transfers), restaurant reservations at the resort, spa reservations, and tour excursions. In addition, she put together a beautiful white party event at the resort complete with dinner and dancing, and talked to the hotel staff to make sure the fish we caught on an earlier excursion could be included in the menu (which otherwise would not have happened). Without her assistance and experience, this event couldn't have been executed so perfectly. I can't express enough how important it is to have this guidance when planning a big event and I'm extremely grateful for ISWD's expertise!
