As co-owner of Berwick Travel, I have also been fortunate to travel a bunch, making great friends in hotel management and operations and experiencing most of our top resorts personally. I know what clients want (and even what they didn’t know they wanted), and I look forward to helping others with the same experiences.

Secrets Puerto Los Cabos is a beautiful upscale adults only resort with amazing views, one of my very favorites. Restaurants have outdoor seating areas, plus the resort offers a firepit area, to enjoy the Los Cabos evenings. Located right on a golf course (very unique!), very fun and exciting atmosphere. Very traditional Cabo style and architecture. Only drawback is a bit of walk/hill to the beach (but no one goes to Cabo for the beaches).
TIP: In this destination, the views are spectacular, and Secrets is no exception. Highly recommend you book an oceanview room here!

Absolutely amazing AmaWaterways experience! We were fortunate enough to be able to spend our 25th wedding anniversary aboard the AmaViola as she sailed down the Rhine river from Basel, Switzerland to Amsterdam, Netherlands. From the staff to the food to the ship to the excursions, the memories made were unparalleled. AmaWaterways really does things the right way – it truly is an inclusive luxury floating boutique hotel that allows you to wake up in a different, incredible, historic city every morning, without the hassle of packing and unpacking. And AmaWaterways offers multiple excursions each day, no additional cost, to see what you want/how you want.
TIP: You must book a balcony stateroom for a river cruise, even French balcony – “standard” staterooms aboard river cruise vessels are partly below the water line! AmaWaterways has a very unique take on a verandah – twin verandah, with one part step-out (for great weather), one part French (sit inside for not-so-great weather).
