Having established what is now Latin America’s largest tour provider, CVC Tours, and being a hotelier who owns GJP Hotels and Resorts, Guilherme Paulus is the authority when it comes to deciding where to visit in that part of the world. He started in the tourism industry in 1972 and joined the hospitality industry in the mid-1990s. He really enjoys sharing information about where people should go on vacation when they decide to visit Latin America.
Guilherme Paulus says that with CVC Tours he wanted to provide a travel experience for his customers that is second to none. He took this same attitude when starting his hotel chain. He places hotels in the best locations in Brazil and makes sure their personal services are top-notch. His hotels also feature excellent restaurants. His hotel chain is comprised of three separate brands. Wish is for those travelers who want a lot of luxury. Prodigy is for those who want luxury but also want value for where they stay. Linx is his budget-friendly option.
There are a lot of great places to stay in Brazil. Confins, MG is one that Guilherme Paulus says he really enjoys and recommends to travelers all the time. Confins is in the state of Minas Gerais. Its earliest claim to fame is that gold was discovered there in 1690. One of the big draws to this area is the Confins Caves which is of great interest to both paleontologists and archaeologists. It is also famous because a fossil named Luzia was discovered there which is 11,000 years old.
Guilherme Paulus says that hare a lot of things to do in the Confins region. He recommends going to the Lagoa Santa Regional Archaeology Museum. They have a number of very interesting fossils to view which have all been discovered in that part of Brazil. He also really like hiking in the Serra do Cipo National Park where there are amazing forests, caves, and waterfalls waiting to be discovered by new travelers. He says he built a hotel there, Linx Confins, which is the best place to both begin and end your journey there.
