Luxury Travel Advisor
Hi, I’m Alexis Rich Chami. The Founder of Palomar Travel.
I’m a Southern California native who caught the travel bug at the age of 7 on a flight to San Francisco. And I’ve been chasing adventure ever since. My desire to travel took me out of California and to the University of Texas at Austin for college, where I earned a degree in Foreign Policy with a minor in Spanish. During a 6-month study abroad program in Spain, my love of travel only blossomed further and after graduating, I moved to Buenos Aires where I worked, traveled, and fell in love with my future husband. (Whoever says Paris is the City of Love has never been to Buenos Aires…)
From New York City to Mexico. From Israel to Belize. From Hawaii to Paris. Over the years, I continued to explore the world through self-guided trips, but it wasn’t until I took a getaway planned by a travel agent friend that I realized how expert guidance can profoundly impact the travel experience. After journeying to many more destinations, conducting countless hours of research, and building a network of on-the-ground experts, I founded Palomar Travel in 2019 and am currently living my dream job—connecting with people through a shared love of travel, advocating and educating around traveling with kids, and creating personalized adventures clients of all ages will never forget.
Costa Rica Family Vacation
Alexis put together an amazing week long trip for my family in Costa Rica. She suggested and coordinated three hotels, all our transfers, and recommended a ton of fun activities for us to do. Thanks to Alexis, we ziplined, hiked to waterfalls, and got to visit a local family where we made tortillas in their house. Alexis is extremely responsive, knowledgeable and thoughtful. I highly recommend using her to plan your next family vacation!
