MEET THE FOUNDER

CIERA POPE

Forever a Beach Bum, a Foodie, and a Thrill Seeker

Hola! My name is Ciera Pope and I presently reside in Richmond, VA. I am a Full Time Wedding Planner by day and a Meticulous Travel Planner by night. (occasionally an impulsive trip comes into play)

When visiting new places, I seek to indulge in the culture and be a little adventurous, but I always leave time to soak up some sun rays poolside with a glass of champagne. Some of my fondest & most heart racing moments are my first zip lining experience during a tropical rainstorm in Mexico, snorkeling with sea turtles in Barbados, and nearly falling off of my ATV in Punta Cana. But hey, what's a vacation without a little thrill, right?

My goal in starting Champagne and Cabanas Travel was to provide a custom travel planning service for millennials. We're great about finding a cheap flight deal or airbnb, but have no idea what to do or how to make the most of our time on vacation. Many people think of of a travel "agent" as someone that clicks away at their keyboard booking cruises with shuffleboard and providing zero customer service. That's why I consider myself a travel planner and I aim to provide personalized service for everyone that works with C&C Travel. Champagne and Cabanas Travel is meant to be a resource for customized travel planning using real information from personal experiences and research. 

I look forward to helping you plan your next getaway, whether it's a solo trip in the mountains or a romantic couple's vacation in a private villa. The only thing I want you to have to worry about is how many swimsuits to pack and what type of drink compliments your meal best. 

Thank you for taking the time to visit, and I hope you enjoy Champagne and Cabanas Travel.
