Host & Owner - Dacia

I have visited 40 countries and 190 cities.  I am mixed with 5 ethnic races and speak 7 languages. An engineer to the bone who enjoys art, history, fashion, design and music.

My family (me, my mom & 2 boys), we enjoy meeting new people and learning about new cultures. Love all things travel. We are so excited to welcome you to our B&B and Marvelous Rio.
