About Me

My name is Carmen Edelson and I’m a full-time luxury travel influencer based in Fort Lauderdale. As a child, my family didn’t have the means to travel. I’m Cuban-American and my parents immigrated to the United States in the late 60s where I was then raised in New Jersey. I didn’t get bit by the travel bug until I was in my early thirties on a trip to Spain visiting family. In fact, I decided to tag along at the last minute and it was the best decision I ever made!

Nowadays I am fortunate enough to travel the world for work, or with friends and family, to some of the best luxury destinations. Even better, I get to share it with my wonderful audience on CarmensLuxuryTravel.com and across all social media platforms. 

Since launching in 2013, I have grown an audience of over 250,000 followers on social media alone. My audience is a wonderful community of luxury travel enthusiasts who are either hardworking professionals or retirees who have the means to explore in a five-star way. They’re also well traveled and count on me to discover hidden gems, unique activities, and the best bang for their buck. 

I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with numerous travel brands including upscale hotels, gourmet restaurants, spas, tour companies, tourism boards and more, in order to provide my readers with the best travel advice, entertainment, and inspiration. If you are someone who enjoys the finer things in life, I hope Carmen’s Luxury Travel can be your go-to resource to learn about the latest travel trends and how to get the most out of your next five-star vacation!
