About Me


Graphic designer who likes photography, meeting people, scouting places, camping, hicking, hitchhicking, cooking while listening music and cs addict. Recently in collaboration with an agency in charge of hotels promotion.

Because many friends are always asking to me and Eva about our travels, we decided to create a fanpage and a blog

fascination is my emotion and emotion is my energy for live. I like to enjoy details with the different activities that you will see in my photos starting with "le me"


1. If you have the chance to take a trip, go ahead and don't look back
2. Some people prefer to die embracing the pillow, I prefer to take the road without mattering when or where I am going to stop walking

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like to host/visit/meet people in CS, since my time in Toulouse I became a meeting maker, therefore I can barely know most part of the CS members around Veracruz and from other cities in Mexico, because I like to meet and share time with the whole CS family.

I am supporting CS meetups in every place where I am, I'm part of the organization behind of the national meetups in Mexico and I always try to give the best advice to the new members about how to use CS


> 2006 Travelling & surfing in Europe
> 2007-2009 Hosting in Tuxpan & Monterrey, some meetings.
> 2010 I've been sharing time with the group of CS Toulouse through many meetings, pic nics and enjoying the good will of the people that I met there, they turned me into a new sense of community and cs values.
> 2011- 2016 Hosting, travelling, surfing and meeting maker

You can check on my photos, year by year with Couchsurfing, a lot of gatherings.

Me and Eva (cs/people/evetion) are the community managers behind the fan page of Couchsurfing Mexico (, the goal of this fan page it's to share guidelines and tips to those people who don't really know how it works Couchsurfing (how to write a couchrequest, how to be a good host and more things to learn ), all the information its published in spanish for a better understanding of the spanish speakers. We share notes about the several meetings along the country, conseils for travelers and interesting places for visit in Mexico.


just watch the photos at the beginning with the title "Le me..."

music, food, drink, routes, lowcost flights - travels, to give advice about CS to the new members

Not too much into books but I had read The little prince, Aztec, Conversations with god, Le rouge et le noir, La Chambre Claire

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Snorkel with whale shark without planning!
just like that, me and Eva took a trip with a friend to Espiritu Santo's island in La Paz and when we were going back to the port, the captain saw 4 whale sharks and he asked us if we wanted to go down with them. Didnt think twice and I went down between them, staying quiet and staring to those huge fishes. There I thought that I share planet with this creatures and even if I like to take care of the nature, that experience made me more conscious of the world where we are living.

Teach, Learn, Share

I know serigraphy, photography, design and lowcost travels.

I've been travelling for most part of the country and most part of the region of Veracruz, therefore, I have plenty tips for your travel that I will be glad to share.
