Meet Wilmar, a Local Host®

My name is Wilmar Strapasson and I was born and raised in Brazil. I speak four languages fluently in additon to Portuguese – English, Spanish, French, and Italian. As a graduate of the Univerity of Amazonas, I found my passion in guiding in that region. I have 20 years of experience working in the Amazon as a guide, specializing in its history, geography, Amazonian flora and fauna, and I have even done some survival training in the area. I love being a tour guide, meeting new people, and introducing them to this fascinating part of Brazil.

Museu do Seringal Vila Paraiso

This is a really interesting visit to discover more about the history of rubber and its impact on Manaus. Spend a couple of hours learning about the somewhat sordid history of the rubber boom and bust in Brazil. Latex still oozes from trees, and the mystery of where those thick shelled Brazil nuts come from is made plain. A great tour and well worth a half day visit.

Arena Amazonia

After 2014’s world cup was hosted by Brazil, an impressive arena is left in the heart of Manaus. Take a tour of the new stadium and marvel at the impressive infrastructure and architecture of the venue.

São Sebastião Church

This lovely cathedral sits opposite the Opera House so if you’re stopping by, take a peek at this historical beauty. The square in front of the church is usually humming with activity and as you step inside, the air conditioning and stillness are a welcome reprieve from the heat and noise of the city. It’s a contemplative spot and often offers church services throughout the day.

Ponta Negra Beach

Not far from the Tropical Manaus Resort, this little patch of beach offers impressive views and is quite popular amongst the locals. It’s great for strolling, people watching and a little volleyball and soccer action. A fun way to spend a few hours on the coast.

Parque Ecologico Januari

This little ecological gem offers the chance to see some of the flora and fauna of the area while getting in some shopping and dining. Depending on the season you can catch glimpses of wild crocodiles, three-toed sloths, bats, and monkeys. Not to mention a good deal of interesting bird life and a giant lily pad lake.

Meet a Local Host® in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

My name is Bruno Mattos Linhares Junior, but everybody calls me Bruno. I was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In spite of my extensive travelling, as a typical carioca, it is in Rio that I feel really at home: I need its sea, mountains, sun, breeze, light, architecture, and above all, its people. I have degrees in Civil Engineering, Philosophy and Theology, all of which haveadded to my interest in Arts, Geography, History and Tour Guide certification, and they all support my work as a Local Host. In fact, it is in my work as a host that I see everything coming together in my future!

Porcão

Visit this restaurant on Flamengo Beach for all-you-can-eat Brazilian barbecue, incredible views of the Bay and Sugarloaf Mountain.

Forte do Leme

A 20-minute walk to the top of this fort on Leme Beach leads you to one of Rio’s best-kept secrets. Take in the 360-degree views of Copacabana and Guanabara Bay while sagui monkeys dart around.

Rio Scenarium

Housed in a renovated warehouse that was once an antique store, this bar in the hip Lapa neighborhood is considered to be the most beautiful in Rio.

Aprazível

Chef Ana Castilho hosted a community event at her home in 1996 and never closed the door. Her Brazilian-fare restaurant takes up several rooms in her charming home and trickles out into the garden, where you can enjoy views of downtown Rio.

Rua da Carioca

The berimbau, a wooden string instrument, is one of the most popular Brazilian souvenirs. Rua da Carioca, dubbed “Music Row” due to its numerous music shops, is the perfect place to purchase one.

Tijuca National Park

For a break from the city, take a walk through this lush rainforest with 30 waterfalls and over 300 plant species.

São Conrado Beach

While the tourists flock to Ipanema and Copacabana beaches, head to this secluded beach for a little more space and beautiful mountain scenery. It’s also fun to watch the hang gliders descend to the landing strip here.

Old Rio

Admire the colonial architecture and baroque churches before hitting the Uruguaiana Shopping District for local treasures. The soft Brazilian cotton is extremely popular.

Santa Teresa

For a break from the glitzy and hedonistic side of Rio, take the streetcar to this charming, authentic village. Colonial houses have been converted to small inns and art studios, and the women are more likely to be in peasant skirts than halter tops.

Misiones Province Jesuit ruins

Most people stop at breathtaking Iguassu Falls on their way from Rio to Buenos Aires, but don’t just visit the amazing waterfall. The Misiones Province area has much to offer, including the 17th-century Jesuit ruins.

Colombo Tea House

If you want to travel back through time and eat in the past, then Colombo is the place for you. This magnificent Continental café has changed little since opening on September 17th, 1894, and it retains an air of restful elegance on its upstairs restaurant balcony.

Botanical Garden

Enjoy a paradise of plants and trees from the four corners of the earth. Founded in 1808, it spreads over an area of approximately 340 acres. It has over 5,000 species of plants, including the impressive Imperial Palms planted in 1842.

Barra Da Tijuca

Rio’s longest beach, it stretches over 18km along Av. Sernambetiba. A hot spot on the beach is the area around the Barraca do Pepê, a bar named for a famous Brazilian hang glider who died competing outside Brazil.

Recreio Dos Bandeirantes

This is a charming 2km long inlet at the end of Sernambetiba Ave. Sheltered by a large rock, Recreio is safe for swimming.

Prainha

A secluded sandy strip 700 meters long, Prainha is a surfer’s beach. It is an Environmental Protected Area.

Grumari

Enjoy the reddish sand in an unspoiled setting. The sea is often rough here. It is also an Environmental Protected Area.

Burle Marx

Out beyond Barra, the vegetation is almost virgin. If you have time, visit Prainha and Grumari beaches—much loved by the surfers. The vegetation is protected, and building is not permitted. Nearby is the estate where the famous landscape artist, Burle Marx, lived. This is open to visitors and is perfect for an ecological/photographic safari. It contains plants from all over the world, though the emphasis is on wonderful examples of Brazilian flora.

Open Fairs

There are open fairs, such as the Hippie Fair in Praça and General Osório in Ipanema, where all sorts of handcrafts, art, and leather goods can be found. At the Babilônia Feira Hype (in the Jockey Club in Gávea), every fortnight the booths are loaded with clothes—mainly for the young. A typically Brazilian event is the open street market—selling fruit and vegetables—which moves around from borough to borough, so a little local knowledge is needed to know when one is operating near your hotel. The show of fruit and greens is spectacular, and prices are reasonable.

Iguassu Falls

Meet Nuxa Areias, one of your Local Hosts in Iguassu Falls, BrazilMonograms provides traveler’s access to a Local Host®, so you will have someone on hand to answer those vacation questions pertaining to Iguassu Falls.

Plus, your Local Host® will share local Iguassu Falls insights and share suggestions for getting off the beaten path, leaving you more time to create lasting vacation memories that are yours alone.

Meet a Local Host®

My name is Nuxa. Despite living in Iguassu for over 32 years, I was born in Angola and after the war I moved with my parents to live in a few countries before arriving in this beautiful place at the age of 12. Here, I did most of my studies and earned a Degree in Letters, becoming a teacher but realized that my passion was nature and that's how I became a guide. I feel that I have one of the best jobs in the world because I work in one of the most beautiful places in the world and my clients are people interested in nature and are concerned about the environment and the planet.

Bird Park

Located near the entrance of Iguassu National Park, the Bird Park has more than 300 species of birds and was constructed with the intention of offering ideal breeding conditions for birds. Rare and colorful birds fly in the huge aviaries, which have been built to blend in with the humid subtropical forest. Visitors are able to enter these aviaries and view the birds at close quarters. They will also see alligators, anacondas, pythons, marmosets, and butterflies. At present, the Bird Park is the largest in Latin America and is internationally recognized. It is open daily from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm.

Itaipu Dam

Plus, your Local Host will share local Buenos Aires insights and share suggestions for getting off the beaten path, leaving you more time to create lasting vacation memories that are yours alone.

Meet Julia, a Local Host®

Born in Buenos Aires but having grown up under a very strong European influence, my father’s profession obliged the whole family to live in different countries. This provided me the opportunity to study foreign languages and at the same time be in touch with a wide variety of cultures, which has fostered my love of nature and especially people. This passion, together with a strong service vocation, made me embrace the tour guide profession, with which I’ve been involved since I was almost a teenager. I love the city where I was born, its wide avenues and parks, its cultural life, and every single corner where I can find even a simple story and share it with those that pass by throughout my daily life. From my point of view, Buenos Aires has everything, and everything here deserves to be seen and shared.

El Niño Bien

There are many tango shows for tourists in Buenos Aires, but this tango salon is where the locals go to strut their stuff. Have fun observing this graceful dance, but don’t be surprised if an instructor tries to coax you onto the floor. Note that this is not a Tango show, but a Milonga salon where local people go to dance and drink. Note: open from midnight and not all days of the week!

Museo Evita

You can stand before the Casada Rosada and see the balcony where Evita addressed her fans, and you can see the tomb where she was laid to rest in the beautiful Recoleta Cemetery. But to truly understand this controversial woman, visit the Museo Evita where her life story is told through her personal objects.

San Telmo Antiques Fair

Held every Sunday in Plaza Dorrego, this outdoor market is full of small antiques and crafts. Normally free live music and tango dancing complete the experience. The market does not take place when it’s raining.

Alvear Palace

Located in the exclusive Recoleta district of Buenos Aires, the Alvear Palace is one of the most luxurious hotels in South America. Step into the Lobby Bar to admire the elegant surroundings while you relax with a cocktail. Perhaps enjoy a selection from their extensive cognac and whiskey list.

Park Hyatt Buenos Aires Palacio Duhau

Located in the exclusive Recoleta district of Buenos Aires, this hotel opened its doors in 2006. The original building was the residence of the wealthy Duhau Family and was constructed with imported material from Europe. The combined old and new architecture is connected with magnificent terrace gardens. You may enter from Alvear Street or Posadas Street.

Cabaña Las Lilas

The average citizen in Argentina consumes 130 pounds of beef per year. If you want to fit in with everyone from local residents to government VIPs, head to this famous steakhouse dating back to 1905. Known worldwide, Cabaña Las Lilas serves the nation’s specialty like no one else. Every night, local and international leading figures of the 20th century flocked to La Cabana—the place to be seen—to enjoy its famous atmosphere and to sample some of the world’s finest beef. Now, it has relocated to Buenos Aires’ fashionable Recoleta area amid many boutiques, 5-star hotels, and beautiful gardens. The restaurant’s original interior has been lovingly recreated with Gaucho-style, large, open fireplaces and many original design details, including heavy-iron ornaments, leather, and burnished-copper utensils.

La Bourgogne

Taste Jean Paul Bondoux’s haute cuisine in Buenos Aires! La Bourgogne is a kind of gastronomic mecca for gourmets. It offers light meals of fish and beef during the day and the symphony of his creations in French regional specialties during the evenings. There is also the famous boutique of delicatessen products, including top cheeses, on the premises. It is open from Monday to Saturday, mid-day and evenings.

Gran Café Tortoni

Whether you make it to a performance at the majestic Teatro Colón or not, you’ll want to visit its equally famous Gran Café Tortoni. Sink into one of the red leather chairs, order the sidra, its signature alcoholic cider, and enjoy the 19th-century décor like Albert Einstein and Josephine Baker once did.

Belgrano

If you’re looking for a Buenos Aires neighborhood off the beaten path, look no further than the Chinatown located here. Considering most locals don’t even know it exists, you won’t bump into any tourists while exploring its shops and restaurants.

Calle Florida

Shopping in the “Paris of the South” is a delight, and you won’t be disappointed with the shops and boutiques here. Exquisite leather shops line Calle Florida, and many will custom-make something for you during your visit.

Calle Báez (Las Cañitas—Belgrano District)

Buenos Aires is known for its nightlife and whether you want dinner, drinks, dancing, or all three, you’ll find plenty of hot spots on this street.

Palacio Barolo

This odd-looking building, once the tallest in South America, has just recently been opened to the public. It offers sweeping views of the city from its unusual tower.

Palermo Soho & Palermo Hollywood

Don’t miss the trendy neighborhoods with excellent designer shops, cafés, and restaurants. They are recommended during the day and evening!

The base for the Museum Pedro de Osma came from the personal collection formed by Don Pedro de Osma Gildemeister between 1936 and 1967. He had remarkable knowledge of the Peruvian art and gradually gathered various exquisite objects dating from the 16th to the 19th century. All the pieces were kept in the large family house in Barranco, arranged in a tight exhibition (style of the European palace museums in the 19th century).

Real Felipe fortress

The fortress was built in 1747 to protect the port from pirates and was the last Spanish bastion during the independence of Peru. Today, it houses an interesting military museum.

Bodega and Quadra Museum

Killari

For handicrafts made in Peru, this shop in Miraflores offers a unique collection of weavings, ceramics, and silver.

La Posada del Mirador

Barrio Chino

This neighborhood in Lima holds South America’s largest Chinese community. Visit any number of the neighborhood’s chifas for Chinese cuisine with a Peruvian twist.

Caballero de Fina Estampa

Miraflores Jogging Path

Pachacamac Pilgrimage Center

Built around 700 AD as a temple for the worship of the sun god Pachacamac, it housed an oracle that is believed to be one of the main pilgrimage centers in pre-Columbian Peru and on a par with Cuzco. Pilgrims flocked here from far away to worship Pachacamac, who was believed to be the creator of the world and its creatures. The site includes palaces, plazas, and temples that have been painstakingly restored. The on-site museum has a collection of local relics.

Barranco

Every major city has its bohemian district—where all the artists and musicians hang out—and for Lima, this district is Barranco. The advantage of Barranco is that it combines all this with being a fashionable beach resort too. Originally a playground and place to spend the summer for the old aristocracy of Lima, the district is a cluster of houses, shops, and restaurants in and around a ravine near a cliff overlooking the beach. In Barranco, it is relatively easy to find a place to sip a coffee or a beer while enjoying a fine view over the ocean.

Islas Palomino

Sail to the islands of Callao. First see the yachts, warships, and merchant ships at anchor in Callao Bay. Then sail over "El Camotal" into the open sea, and observe sunken and stranded ships. Pass the Isle of San Lorenzo—with its long history going back to pre-Columbian times. There are fishing boats at work and many colonies of sea birds and Humboldt penguins. The farthest point on the trip is Palomino Island, home to a large number of seals and sea lions. In a wetsuit, you can swim among them, as they have no predators—it is an unforgettable and emotional moment. Then start your voyage back through impressively shaped islets and rocks.

Hacienda Mamacona

No more than 25 km to the south of Lima is a little-known hacienda where you can experience nature on the coast, ancestral customs, links with the Inca past, and the incomparable Peruvian paso horse. (Only on Tuesdays.)

Astrid Y Gaston

This warm and chic modern, colonial dining room is hidden discreetly on a busy side street leading to Parque Central in the Miraflores district. The restaurant has high, white-peaked ceilings and orange walls decorated with colorful modern art—the products of local art students. At the back is an open kitchen, where one of the owners, Gastón, can be seen cooking with his staff. The place is sophisticated but low-key—a description that could fit most of its clients, who all seem to be regulars. The menu might be called "criollo-Mediterranean" with a light Peruvian touch.

Meet a Local Host®

I was born in Quito and lived here most of my life. I always liked to travel and that is why after finishing high school, I decided to study tourism administration. While I was studying at the University, I started to work as a tour guide and found it very interesting. Being a tour guide allows me to meet people from many different places and it took me to incredible places. For a period of time I moved to Argentina where I taught Spanish and English but I missed my family and country, so I decided to come back to Ecuador. When I came back to Quito, I worked as a Key Account Executive for a tour operator, which was a great experience for my career, but after a time, I decided to be a tour guide again. I realized I enjoy being with people outside in the nature more than working in an office, and I am able to have more time for other activities I like, such as painting and working with the children of my church.

Meet Lorena, a Local Host® in Guayaquil, Ecuador

I was born, raised and educated in Guayaquil, Ecuador. I finished my education as an English teacher in Guayaquil, but I kept on studying as Tour Guide, graduated at the U.N.I.D.E.C. University from Riobamba and obtained my Tour Guide License. I worked with children as an English teacher in an elementary school from 1986 to 2012. Nineteen years ago I had the opportunity to work as a tour guide for the shore excursions provided to Norwegian Cruise Vista Fjord, and since then I discovered a wonderful job where I learned to know my country. Due to my high skills and responsibility I began to work as a tour guide. I love the Ecuadorian flora and fauna and I would like to be a specialized guide in bird watching in the near future. My great satisfaction as a tour guide has been incredible because I had the chance to meet people from other cultures and latitudes from around the world.
