Journey Mexico is proud to announce that founder and president Zachary Rabinor has recently been awarded as one of the World’s Top 44 Villa Specialists, representing Mexico for 2011 by Condé Nast Traveler. The list was created by top travel authority Wendy Perrin and team, who take great care and pride in their travel recommendations.
According to Condé Nast Traveler, “Six years of putting villa rental agents through their paces—renting from them, accompanying them on villa inspections, interviewing them, hearing feedback from readers—have produced this list of the experts best qualified to match you with the right property. The agents on these pages have visited every home they represent (all handpicked for their authentic sense of place), have slept in many of them, and reinspect them at least annually.”
This Villa Specialist Award comes in addition to Zach’s recent achievement of being chosen as one of the World’s Top 135 Travel Specialist by Condé Nast Traveler. You can view Zach’s profile on Wendy Perrin’s Truth.Travel site, which was created to bring trusted travel insight to the discerning traveler.

Conde Nast’s World’s Top Traveler Specialists list is run by award-winning, world travel expert and “The greatest consumer advocate a traveler could ever have,” Wendy Perrin, the Consumer News Editor for Conde Nast Traveler. Wendy also runs an excellent travel resource at www.cntraveler.com, keeps an informative and fun blog called the Perrin Post, and dominates on Twitter with over 12,000 followers. According to the article, Wendy hand picked this year’s 135 Travel Specialists from more than 10,000 applicants, making it more difficult to be included than getting accepted to Harvard!
