Leandro A.

Itacaré, Bahia, Brazil

Hello and welcome to beautiful Itacaré! My name is Leandro and I have been working in the field of tourism since university graduation in 2001.

I decided to become a tour guide because I love surfing, reading, photography, traveling and especially appreciating nature.

I worked at an eco resort in Itacaré, Bahia for 9 years. At this hotel I was certified to teach stretching exercises, yoga, and give surfing lessons. Two years ago, after acquiring that experience, I started working on my own in Itacaré. My passion is to share this wonderful environment with visitors to this region of Brazil.

Itacaré is a locale surrounded by beautiful beaches, cacau culture, waterfalls and magnificent Brazilian rain forest (Mata Atlantica). I am happy to share the experience of this wonderful life so close to nature. Everyone is welcome to hike, delight in boat trips, and refresh in a waterfall, lull on a beach, or just breathe the pure sweet air of Mata Atlantica rainforest. It's possible to experience a sweet day walking among the trees and taste delicious natural chocolate from a local fazenda as well.

My hobby is to explore this amazing coast and share this with travelers. We can have a relaxing day on the beach or hike through forest trails.

I offer private tours in my Chevrolet truck which has space for fishing equipment, surfboards or anything else you wish to bring (for up to 4 people).

When I prepare a tour, I always keep my customers' interests in mind.

I can't wait to meet you and be your guide in this beautiful paradise!
