About me

Juanjo is a multidisciplinary professional who has achieved several skills in various areas. He believes that human essence flows from the sensory capacity of music, art, and movement. Because of this sensibility, he has dedicated over a decade of his life to the practice and research of Capoeira and within it, he has found an art form to imprint his feelings, talents, and skills.

Taking advantage of the knowledge about Brazilian culture, he became a professional tour guide implementing narrative skills oriented to intellectually curious travelers to offer personalized experiences based on their love to learn. He founded his own cultural tourism company in Brazil under the name of Capoeira Paraty.

Recently, after the COVID-19 outbreak, he created, with the help of other tourism professionals, the Impact Travel Collective in which we are intending to aggregate and offer an online platform for guides to learn how to make a positive impact on the Global Goals with their tours.
