Meet Tammy Tkachuk
Let me introduce myself, may name is Tammy Tkachuk and I am a travel agent with Ultimate Destination Weddings.
I thoroughly enjoy traveling and I take every opportunity I can to travel and explore! I tell all my clients that I work so I can travel more! It is just so motivating and satisfying to check out a new part of the world, experience new cultures and meet new clients! I make it my goal to try to travel outside of Canada at least two-three times a year.
I got into destination weddings because I too was once a bride in destination – the Riviera Maya in fact. I really enjoyed the whole process and it was also my first time in Mexico. I was hooked in many ways! About a year later I started looking into how I could get into the travel business so I could feed my own travel hunger and then also help others!
My favourite part of my job is helping couples plan their perfect destination wedding – and making it as fun and stress free precess as possible! Let me help you plan your own destination wedding, honeymoon or romantic getaway!

This is a tough one… I think right now Huatulco, Mexico is my fav!

Best travel tip?
Westjet (and maybe other airlines I am not aware of) will allow you to bring one bag of donation items for free – once I found that out we now take an old suitcase to filled with clothes etc to Mexico and just leave it all there – suitcase included.
Fun Fact 1 – I actually really don’t like to fly but the destination is always worth it!
Fun Fact 2 – My son’s first trip to Mexico was when he was 8 weeks old!
My fav destination!
Fun Fact 3 – It is very common to experience a small earthquake in Hualulco – I have personally experienced two!
