My Background

Brazilian-born Mayla is exactly where she planned in her 12-year agency career – running the F1S leisure division. In 2010, she was named one of Travel Agent magazine’s 30 under 30. Mayla was also named Top All Star Agent by Travel Agent Magazine last year. Nowadays as part of a new breed of travel agents, she sees the industry shifting towards what she is passionate about: experiential travel. Mayla travels every month to keep her knowledge fresh. Some of her recent top picks include Germany, Austria, Bratislva and Hungary, Marrakech, Tokyo, Jamaica’s Port Antonio (“a well-kept secret”), Zhangjiajie in China, and her all-time favorite destination – her native Brazil. She graduated in December of 2002 with her Bachelor of Travel and Tourism.

I am a Virtuoso travel advisor based in New York, where I have been planning travel for 15 years.

I have personally visited 36 countries. My favorite destinations include Morocco, Brazil, and Italy. I specialize in planning travel for families, honeymoons and romance getaways, and cruises.

One of the things I love best about travel is exploring new cultures and trying new foods and meeting the people.

My clients would say I am creative and customize travel for my unique client interests and travel style.

Professional honors/awards/board memberships: Travel Agent magazine 30 under 30 award, also top All Star Agent by Travel Agent Magazine.

I love to help clients’ travel dreams become a reality.

If you book through me, I can access Virtuoso exclusive experiences such as private shore excursions or behind-the-scenes tours, plus lots of hotel perks, such as room upgrades, spa and dining credits, and free breakfast. I look forward to hearing from you!
