Daneel & Bia Schaechter
- Latin America,
Always planning our next adventure to authentically explore the world. Manhattan-based but you might find us in Rio de Janeiro, or in a net new country.
JFK and EWR – all day, every day.
My travel style
As foodies and photographers, we love spending time in awe-inspiring sites with incredible food. We've done it all – from maxing out points and miles for 5-star luxury during our honeymoon, to traveling as a digital nomad on a budget. There's no better feeling than sharing our tips and recommendations with others to help plan the trips of their dreams. We both have an insatiable thirst to see and experience it all, opting for jam-packed days to maximize our leisure time. Having lived and worked abroad, and traveled extensively, we want to share our passion with you to plan your dream trip!
Language I speak: Portuguese (fluent), Spanish (professional-working level), English (fluent), Yiddish (fluent) and German (intermediate).

Two truths, one lie:
Daneel has visited more Brazilian states than Bia (even though she grew up in Brazil).
During our honeymoon in Southeast Asia, we learned to prefer ramen as opposed to waffles or eggs for breakfast.
We are expert negotiators in the souk, mercado or any local market. We always know our BATNA and exactly when to walk away.
