About Me

I am Mexican, 26 years old and living in Vancouver.

I am from a city in Mexico called Tuxtla Gutierrez, Chiapas. I like playing tennis, going to the gym. When the music is nice, I like to dance. Salsa is my favorite. I love going to the movies, I think one of the best placers of life is too see a good movie.

I love running, I ran a half marathon last march and I am looking for more :)

In summer of 2010 and the next one in 2011, I had the chance to go to Alberta, Canada, for 2 months of tree planting. It was a wonderful experience, where I knew many people, enjoying the nature around me, and most important off all, starting to know that you don’t need many things to be happy. It was a very nice experience and for sure I would like to do it again. Last year I had a bear 20 mts. away from me, it stole my backpack with all my food! haha.

Naturally, I am lover of Mexican food, and I know too cook that delicious kind of food; I think we can have some Mexican dinners some day!

I had an amazing time in Berlin, living there from one year.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I like to travel to new places and now the local things from locals... they are the one who knows the very esencial soul of the city, what dosen't come in the tourist tour gide.

trying to know something new everyday!


I stayed in September 2012 with a nice guy in Nürnberg, that experience was very nice, so I would make it again. Now I want to make a trip trough Italy and use couch surfing!

I had a wonderful experience in Italy (2013), I was hosted in Milan, Torino, Padua, La Spezia and Rome for wonderful people and wonderful hosts! since that time I changed my couchsurfing address from Mexico to Berlin, so I could feel the hosting experience.

Hosted Tomas in Berlin (2013), nice guy from Lituania, we walked and and drunk a lot around the city! haha

Mike hosted me in L.A. in June 2016, we had a very nice time while visiting Santa Mónica.


My interest are traveling and know nice people... making friends... I like to work hard! going to the movies is my hobby. Naturally I love Mexican food!! (and I know how to do make it too :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In the 2010 and 2011 summer I went to plant trees into canadian forests. In 2011, while I was working, I had a bear experience, I saw it 20 mts aways from me! then he went out, but he returned to take the rest of my food... with my hole backpack!! We had to enter into the forest to search for the backpack!! haha at the end we founded, with out food, but in good conditions :)

Living in Berlin definitely changed my life!
