Advisor - Edel Panizales


Married to NYC but always flirting with the Caribbean. To me, being at an awesome resort when in the Caribbean is like sitting on the corner of awesome and bombdiggity.

Home airports

JFK for international, LGA for domestic – but have you sat in the JetBlue terminal at SFO? Holy comfy chairs!

My travel style

While on vacation I am all about savoring each sip of my morning coffee, feeling the loving warmth of the sunset and enjoying delicious laughs over a yummy dinner. I don't always feel the need to go somewhere new or far to get away. Going to a nearby or familiar paradise is underrated.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Swaying on hammocks and bathing in chocolate soap in Puerto Morelos.

  • Confirming which is the best Philly cheesesteak in Philadelphia. 

  • Hopping water taxis in Fort Lauderdale and Miami with no set destination. 

  • Finding which LA-based Filipino restaurant has food most similar to my mom's cooking.

Dreaming of:

  • Going back to Blue River in Costa Rica. 

  • Staying at Dreams and Secrets Punta de Mita.

  • Finding the best spa in Switzerland. 

  • Eating oysters with my family and friends in the Philippines.

One thing I can't travel without...

Cannot live without lip balm.

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I loved swimming with sharks.

  2. I think carrots are the ultimate vegetable.

  3. I am really lucky when playing roulette.
