About Me

Please read full profile:
Dubai april 17 :D

I normally HOST on weekends from friday to sunday (or monday if it is a holiday) so plz understand that i am not very open to host weekdays.

You need to know I am not the typical Colombiano who loves coffee and have latin music. I can't dance salsa or have any good latino moves. You will probably have the non-typical-latino lifestyle if you hang out with me which will probably be going to electroclubs with predrinking sitting in public parks (NO DRUGS and I don't tolerate people using them in my house, sorry about that) so if you are not into parties and electromusic honestly it probably will not be a pleasant experience. I do love partying but despite of trying to be open minded I like having my limits and I would be opting to choose the same kind of people when it comes to losing the mind.
Also my apartment is a little bit hot without AC-air and sometimes you could sleep on the couch or a not-so-comfortable mattress but still.
You are free to use everything in my house and leave it as clean as it was.
If you are curious about me a little more you can check it on

Having that clear and said:
For couch requests send me the message here but ONLY if you are in a serious hurry you will have to write me on whatsapp or facebook +573003499649 or beause I don't spend too much time weekly on here. I mostly receive travelers on weekends because I like to spend some time with my guests to show the city around, crazy/chilly party, go out for a beer or just hanging out for a while. Just to make sure that you read a little bit of this profile please send the start of your couch request with the phrase Hola parcero!

Why not? Let's do it! :D

Do whatever you want always, just makes sure it will make you the happiest

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Open to meet new people, learning from new vibes and ways to see the world. Show people around Medellin when I can and training the spirit of hospitality.

Music, Movies, and Books

MUSIC: Probably everything except Rancheras, Tango, Heavy Metal. But when on cultural exchange I'm more open.

MOVIES: not so many.
La piel que habito, SHAME, The Help, The girl with the Dragon Tattoo, the boy in the striped pyjamas, One day, Jeux de Enfants, Harry Potter, The ICE age. Eventually those are the last I watched that I liked and remembered. I feel more attracted with Horror, Action, Drama, Comedy & Fiction movies.

BOOKS: Not really a good reader. Just a couple of Gabriel García Marquez. (I know it's a shame, but if you figure out there's a book I definitely should read I'll probably do)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Sorry but not just one
*Paragliding in Santander
*I'm inlove with the Golden Gate bridge and everything California-related since I went there in 2010.
*Moving to Medellin, live and enjoy the city and the people.
*working for viventura which means meeting my German and French friends and enjoying so much from them.
*Colombian beaches... Tayrona WOW!

Teach, Learn, Share


*Spanish (different Colombian accents actually, maybe Mexican, Argentinian, Spaniard and Peruvian Spanish accents when I am a little drunk, also add Spanish idioms, cool expressions and lot of new words)
*English if you are not native
*I'm an Online Marketing Consultant which is pretty much a raising need for people with business out there. So I can give you good short advises for your business website.
*I could teach my Colombian way of dancing? and partying
*I apologize I can't cook but I can try to show you what Colombian food is like.
*I can teach you about Colombia, recommend you places if you are visiting in the future, suggest something that may fit on your interests and maybe some things related with the Colombian culture, history or people.
*Actually I could think of more but maybe not really useful/practical things

*I love learning languages, and trying to get new accents, new words and new habits.
*I would love to learn to cook something typical or maybe your favorite dish.
*I love learning and listening to cool stories
*Maybe you got a cool drinking game or something? or a different way to party or have fun. I would like to learn it.

SHARE: sometimes I like taking Colombian handicrafts for my foreigners friends so maybe if you like them I could share one with you.
