Welcome to Carmen’s Luxury Travel. I’m Carmen Edelson a full time luxury travel influencer, writer, specializing in luxury and family travel.

Carmen Edelson, Founder of Carmen's Luxury Travel

I started traveling about a decade ago through Europe and the Caribbean. Since I started in my 40s, I wanted to help others get started finding out about the world. My interest in traveling grew greater because I wanted my children to learn firsthand about other countries and cultures.

I launched my luxury website, Carmen’s Luxury Travel in 2013 which specializes in luxury and family travel after receiving encouragement from a close friend to document and share my amazing experiences, love of travel, and photography.

My Story

When I was a child we didn’t have the means to travel.  I’m a Cuban American whose parents immigrated from Cuba in the late sixties where I then grew up in New Jersey.  I got bit by the travel bug in my early thirties when I found out that my grandmother was going on a trip to Spain to see our family which I had never met.  I decided to tag along at last minute, and it was the best decision I had made.  That’s when my love for travel began.

I worked in the corporate world as a Credit Manager for 26 years.  My career afforded me unique opportunities to travel to large cities and remote locations. Although I preferred luxury travel, this wasn’t an option. It wasn’t until I remarried for a second time that I had the ability to start experiencing what a five star hotel with all the bells and whistles was like.  There was no turning back after that.

I continue to enjoy traveling around the world to luxury destinations and document my personal trip experiences, whether I’m with my husband, my family, or my girlfriends.  I’m a jetsetter at heart, and I’ll never get tired of traveling.


Carmen’s Luxury Travel is a unique luxury website for those who like to indulge in the finer things in life. It includes exclusive beach hotels to small luxury hotels, weekend spa escapes, cruises, gourmet restaurants, top notch hotels, tour attractions and anything that boasts a degree of exclusivity and a dash of luxury in your life.
