SAN SEBASTIAN, Mexico -- My daylong excursion to San Sebastian
began at 9:30 a.m. at the private Aerotron Hangar at Puerto
Vallarta's Gustavo Diaz Ordaz Airport.
I had booked my trip through ShoreTrips, an online operator offering more
than 1,000 commissionable excursions throughout the Caribbean and
the Mexican resort areas of Cancun, Cozumel and Puerto
The firm's forte is the unusual outing that goes well beyond the
standard expected itinerary.
Partners Barry Karp and Julie Ansfield help agents plan day
trips for land-based travelers who want more than just an island
tour or for cruise passengers who want to maximize their shore
The operator on my San Sebastian trip was Vallarta Adventure, a
young firm with three air tours, seven water-based adventures and
an off-road trek into the Mexican outback.
The San Sebastian trip was priced at $140.
ShoreTrips' commission structure is $5 per client, per tour, for
excursions priced up to $99; $10 for tours priced between $100 and
$199; and $20 for tours priced from $200 to $299. The commission
increases in $10 increments for each $100 price bracket.
