We are thrilled to introduce you to Cuco, an integral member of our Dana Tours team. With 14 years of valuable experience and a passion for his job, Cuco has been a dedicated part of Dana Tours for an impressive 11 years. 

Originally from the vibrant city of Maputo, Cuco is a family man, cherishing his time with his lovely wife and two children. Their bond is a source of joy and motivation for him.

During his leisure time, Cuco finds relaxation in his favorite hobby, watching soccer. Cheering for his favorite teams and players provides a well-deserved escape from his busy routine. 

When it comes to favorite places in Mozambique, Cuco adores Ilha de Mocambique. The island’s vibrant colors in the clothing and buildings, coupled with the warmth of its local people, create an unforgettable and enriching experience.

Looking to the future, Cuco believes that the travel industry will become more digital and require less personal contact, as the pandemic has accelerated the adoption of digital tools and technologies. 

The fascinating office environment is Cuco’s favorite part of working with Dana Tours, where camaraderie and teamwork create a positive atmosphere. 

For travelers visiting Mozambique, his top tip is to remember their cameras to capture all the unforgettable moments they will experience in this extraordinary country. 

In a single sentence, Cuco eloquently describes what makes Mozambique so special – “the best place in the world where you can experience beaches, bush, and culture in harmony.”
