Ever since I was a kid, I've been traveling all over Brazil with my family, and I've always been totally into checking out new places, finding in each different place its cool quirks, accents, food, and traditions - Brazil is really the country of diversity. I was born in Mato Grosso do Sul down in the South Pantanal area, but I spent a bunch of years living up northeast where you've got those awesome sand dunes and warm beaches.
Nowadays, I'm back in the South Pantanal, hanging out in Bonito, which is seriously one of the best places for nature lovers in Brazil. It's got these pristine rivers, natural caves, and waterfalls that are just mind-blowing!
All these adventures growing up made me super passionate about travel and about my country, which led me to choose a career in tourism. I mean, how cool is it that my job lets me travel around Brazil and really get to know the place inside out? I'm all about helping travelers who want to experience the real Brazil, and do it in a way that's respectful to the environment and local communities. So, if you're up for some authentic and responsible Brazilian adventures, I'm your go-to person!
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"Brazil. We provide creative, responsible and quality adventure travel experiences in Brazil that aim to bring travelers closer to the country’s amazing geographical and cultural richness."
How did you get involved in travel?
"13 years ago I moved with my family to the northeast of Brazil, a very famous tourist destination for its amazing beaches and warm waters. I was finishing high school at the time and needed to choose a profession, and as I've always loved traveling, I've identified the opportunity to work with something I really liked.
I graduated with a degree in tourism 10 years ago and started working at an inbound tour operator that specialized in selling Brazil. Over the last 10 years at this company, I spent 6 years in operations, the first 4 years as a consultant and then 2 years supervising the operations team, before eventually joining the sales team 4 years ago.
I've had the opportunity to travel and to visit most of the destinations that we offer in Brazil and I love to explore the country whenever I can. After many years I am still in love with my job and all the amazing destinations and natural beauties that my country has to offer."
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"In 2014 I visited the Lençóis Maranhenses National Park for the first time and was impressed by the only desert on the planet that has ponds between white sand dunes. We did a trekking, walking among the smooth white dunes without any vegetation and refreshing on the ponds along the way. After a late afternoon picnic, we set up camp and overnight in the national park. What an experience!
The sunrise in the desert was so outlandish that I really think it was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. Next day we went back to the city and flew over the park with a small Mooney and during 30 minutes we could see the hundreds of dunes, lagoons and small villages as Atins and Baixa Grande. This trip can be extended to a 4 days trekking experience and I always recommend to the most adventurous clients!"

We had a wonderful trip to Brazil! Camille did an amazing job with our itinerary, hotel selection and all our guides were exceptional. It was the right balance of activities and relaxation. Everything was well organized and we never waited for anyone. When one of our internal flights were delayed the team was available to help us, even on a Sunday. Lencois was unforgettable and worth the effort to get there, Rio is a stunning city and Isla Grande was a highlight. Definitely recommend Camille for your trip!
