About Me

I[m an easy going guy who loves the simplest things in life such as spending a good time with the friends, traveling and walking around listening to my music, I love watching movies, specially the ones you can learn something from, not just for entertainment purposes but to really enjoy them. I love eating tasty meals and tropical fruits along with spending a good quality time with my family and my friends. I am pro peace and wish to know people from all over that I can share some experiences and values with.
My biggest passion is to travel and get to know new and exotic different places. I love to be spontaneous and friendly with the people I consider it is worth to have my valuable time. Into people who can positively contribute to my life instead of causing me stress and above else, people that I can feel related to. A good and deep constructive chat is always welcome along with sharing different points of view about the things that matter the most in life. I consider myself a very independent guy who loves to hang out with related people and who loves to reinvent himself every day. Always challenging myself anf trying to be a good brother with my brothers from another mother on this earth we live on. My motto has always been reciprocity as I strongly believe we get what we put out for others and so I wanna attract good and possitive vibes from other people.
I do believe in God in a healthy way, not fanatic either but down to earth oriented, embracing the good things I have received as daily blessings and hoping for the best on every case.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because I believe in karma and if we give hospitality and good vibes, that's what we'll get from others. Blessings we attract to our lives by being nice to other brothers and sisters.
I love meeting new interesting and constructive people that I can get related with as I try to learn from them. Since I so love to travel, God knows if I will be able to know someone through CSurfing that might be soooo matching for our traveling experiences. I have received help from people over CSurfing and I just want to share what I have been given, though I cannot do so to its fullest because of my so busy schedule.


Dancing, studying, traveling, eating, movies, theather, swimming, landscaping, listening to music, studying, museums, any other activity that involves healthy entertainment.

I don´t ask for anything from my guests but if it is your will to bring me a little souvenir from your country, I LOVE traditional brazalets, necklaces and fridge magnets so they`d be very much appreciated :D :D :D

Music, Movies, and Books

Let's just say I do not have a specific music genre as I just have to like the song so I can have it on my playlist, however, I am very clear as to what music not to like haha. Mostly electronic and hip hop, though I can also get inspired listening to some jazz, chinese bamboo, mexican music or some other that I just like and I have to make mine.
I love reading about politics and the mind exploring along with social sciences matters (Sociology, Anthropology, Archaeology). Movies: I love drama, real life teaching movies, touching movies, love movies, life lessons movies, inspiring and even religious movies that can really touch me, get to me and leave me with a valuable life lesson. I hate Fast & the Furious and Harry Potter haha but I love Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Life of Pi, The Green Mile, the Passion of the Christ and some other good ones.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Visiting Vegas and fly over the street like Superman (the Freemont Street). I was in the Grand Canyon, have swimmed in Semuc Champey in Guatemala, went over a glaciar at the Huaraz National Park in Peru, visited Machu Pichu and some other archeological sites and very beautiful cities in Colombia. I have also visited a nude beach and I loved it. Love to visit natural places and so I love hiking volcanoes. Also visited Tahoe and hiked mountains to get to see beautiful waterfalls, there´s a lot of stuff and places that I can think of. I have been to Disneyland and Universal Studios in LA and so I´ve had the pleasure to attend the United Nations Hall as a part of a delegation representing Bolivia, been to almost all of the beautiful Museums in Washington DC and so have been able to relate to nice people in Atlant while eating a delicious dinner. Have had visitors from Israel, Muslims and nudity lovers and they have all been quite an experience for me!!

Teach, Learn, Share

A little bit of my country´s culture and trendy stuff to do while visiting. My home warmth, my friendship and my time when I have it available because I work and study. I can teach you Spanish and so I can give you some tips on how to move along in the city.

What I Can Share with Hosts

My hospitality, my home with private bathroon (it is small but cozy), my guidance through the city and a cool friendship that can last for as long as we grow it. I can also share my kitchen when possible and of course, share with you as a visitor along with giving you some tips to save money and to use transportation accross Guatemala.

!!!!!!Please note that if you stay with me, you MUST be willing to share the same bed as I only have mine, so you must be ok with that (of course, everyone will have their own side of the bed) and please be clean. My house is a very ONE small piece so if you´re shy, my place is not what you need, which is why I only host men
