Founder & Director
Mariana was born in São Paulo and then lived in different parts of the world for studies or work: Boston, Buenos Aires, Madrid, London, Paris. She studied hotel management and started her career as a sales executive for the best hotel resort in the nineties, located on a private island in Bahia. In 2001, she moved to Paris, willing to share her culture with the French people, so she started to represent Brazilian products in the travel industry.
These years were essentials to forge Mariana style: highly committed, efficient, detail-oriented and permanent search for improvement - thanks to her European experiences. At the same time: creative, flexible and dynamic - thanks to her Brazilian identity!
In 2004, Mariana created Passion Brazil, a DMC specialized in tailor-made holidays for individual travelers and groups.
Luxury tour operators and incentive travel companies started working with us, thanks to our original products and highly customized offers. They were constantly looking for more unique and innovative tours around Brazil.
Relying on the needs and expectations of our discerning VIP clients, we decided to create a new company, specialized in unique and emotional travel experiences.
Passion Collection was born from the growing demand of clients searching for authentic experiences, not classic excursions; eager to interact with people and participate in these activities, not only observe them.
Our product team works constantly to increase our portfolio with unique products and the most exclusive experiences. We have a vast choice of properties, from leading brand hotels to hidden gems. We travel around the country to explore secret places and get a first-hand experience of the products because we want to ensure each of them is unquestionably outstanding.
Our team of travel designers is highly trained to deal with the most demanding clients, looking for a more in-depth experience of Brazil. They make sure their time away from daily life is perfect, creating inspirational trips and building private journeys around their needs and preferences, likes and dislikes, and surprising them along the way.
Because luxury is time, customization and flexibility, our team will fill out each client profile, understand their needs and preferences. We are here to guide, inspire and suggest what your guests didn’t expect to be possible.
Our concierge provides exclusive addresses and the best local experiences for your clients. Looking for a massage, a particular restaurant, a special concert, just let us know and we will take care of it.
Because we want to go a step further with our guests, a Brazilian gift will be waiting for them. However, don't let them know, this is a surprise.
Our select network of exclusive partners in all the exotic destinations give us insider access to local experiences, secret addresses and restricted contacts.
Combined with our purchasing power, our clients will receive exclusive added-value benefits. They can be room upgrades, a treatment at the SPA, a complimentary meal, free nights, special amenities and other different conditions.
We understand time is money for luxury travelers, so they need fast replies, and we have to deal with different time zones. Working with an online platform of hotels and thanks to our dynamic team, we can provide speediness in our time of response to your enquiries.
We always have a travel expert behind-the-scenes to assist your clients during their trip, ensuring a worry-free experience. Our team speaks Portuguese, English, Chinese, Vietnamese, French, Italian, and Spanish.
We are a team of experienced travel designers with an unrivaled knowledge of Brazil and its secret treasures. We are always looking for new hidden places through our creative and reliable partners.
