Travel + Leisure A List Travel Agent Erin Correia

Erin Correia


Correia’s local connections take visitors with an interest in sustainability and conservation behind the scenes. She has set up a tour of the Galápagos Ecological Airport — the first in the world to run exclusively on solar and wind power — and arranged a rare talk with the scientists at the Charles Darwin Research Station. She knows that travelers are more educated on destinations than they ever have been in the past, which explains why Correia uses her years of experience and on-the-ground experts to suggest trips that can’t be found anywhere else. “I consider myself an advisor or trip designer,” she shares. “For the Galápagos Islands, I act as a matchmaker — finding the perfect itinerary, accommodations, excursions for each client's needs. And for other destinations, I act as a designer, curating the perfect itinerary from scratch. I can adapt to the needs of each traveler and the particular quirks of their desired destination.”

"I found Erin two years ago when I was starting to plan the first of two trips to South America. My travel has changed 100 percent because of her. First, her knowledge of each location is intimate, detailed, and deep. It is combined with an absolutely infectious excitement and enthusiasm for each location. Erin helps you plan, but also dream. I also feel that her ability to truly listen and hear what it is you're seeking, and tailor accordingly is first-rate. These skills make Erin a wonderful companion in the travel planning process. I felt as if she truly knew me, and every suggestion was tailored to who I was as a person and a traveler. I can honestly say that the best trips I have taken are the ones that Erin has planned with me. She is someone who has gone off to see the world in her own life with passion and excitement, and is now sharing that with her clients. How lucky we are!" - Carol Goss
