The Team

House Staff

Brazilians are some of the most hospitable people on earth. With smile and a twinkle in their eye, the Brazilians share our goal of making your trip to Brazil special and memorable. The Agua Boa Amazon Lodge has an often unseen team of people working in the background at the Lodge, without these services the Lodge would not run as smoothly as it does. From Boa Vista, we have Elenilde and Josue who have been with the Agua Boa team for three years, and Piaui for two years. Marcia is the newest member of our house staff and has been with us for one year, she is from the local village of Sta Maria Boiacu.

Elenilde and Marcia are in charge of the cleaning of the guests accommodation, and providing that invaluable daily laundry service for our guests. Josue is our maintenance man, and Piaui keeps the swimming pool and Lodge grounds in excellent order. If during your stay, there is anything any of us can do to make your trip more enjoyable, please do not hesitate to ask us. We are here to help.

Kitchen and Service

Pictured to the left is our chef and boss of the kitchen, Francisco. As with almost all of our Agua Boa Amazon Lodge team, he resides in one of the local villages during the closed season at the Lodge. He has been head of the catering at the Lodge for some nine years now, and his culinary expertise produces a wide range of soups, fish, and meat dishes both in local and international styles.

His local cuisine, homemade biscuits, and bread are always a hit with the guests. Francisco has an assistant in the kitchen, and Mari from our service team can often been seen showing her culinary skills in the kitchen.

Mari and Jon have been with the team for 4 years, both are from Boa Vista and make up our service team attending to our guests during meal times. They will also be found serving freshly made Caipirinhas to returning guests after a long day on the river, and serving our guests at the pool side bar whilst they are relaxing prior to their evening meal.
