Otehlia Travels offers travel planning services, one-of-a-kind group tour experiences and travel agent services. I work directly with local tour guides, businesses, restaurateurs, chefs, and families to ensure that your money supports the communities in which you travel and to ensure you have the best trip possible. Let me help you embark on your next adventure!

On a food tour you expect to enjoy your sense of taste. Otehlia made sure all senses were heightened! The smells of food, beach, jungle. The sights: lush plants, lovely water, animals particularly the fish when snorkeling. The sound of the birds, waves, sea breeze, even a howler monkey! Not only eating the local food, helping make it while learning about the culture behind it. Super fun tour! SO glad I went!
