About Me

I'M NOT GAY. I don't want to offend anyone, not homophobic, but too many messages from gay guys trying to flirt is very annoying.

*******Please read "MY HOME" section carefully before sending a lodging requeriment, I updated it due to some bad experiences*****

I am the type of person who enjoys the simple things that life can offer you. I have not traveled much outside my country, but for sure it is something that I am going to fix, I do not want to reach old age, regretting not having traveled enough and seeing the wonderful things of this planet.

I love trekking and hiking, swimming, running, ride bikes and of course go to the gym (6 days per week). I try to stay healthy as much as possible, I'm not a gym freak tho hahaha. Keep a healthy body for a healthy mind.

I'm not a very religious person but I feel more affinity with Christianity, I just believe in Jesus, and I respect each one of the religions and beliefs of the people.

I consider myself as a down to heart person. the values that my family taught me since my childhood, my love of God, my life experiences and in general all my way through this world, have made me a person with my feet on the ground, with compassion for those who need help and with joy to face each new dawn.

I love meeting strangers, with thousands of stories to tell. each person is a book with experiences that we all can learn from, with a vision of life that we can explore.

This life is too short and we must make each day count. I want to one day become an old man with many exciting stories to tell my grandchildren and the people I meet on the road. I want to live as much as possible, to live in a good way, enjoying the beauty of life.

I am a very passionate story listener hahaha I like to surround myself with kind, honest and grateful people, with a kind heart.

About my music tastes, I like Latin rap music, latin reggae music, latin American rappers are very talented. I also like 80s rock music like bon Jovi, guns and roses, skid row, white snake etc. For work out I like techh house and Trance music.


Every day is a gift that God gives us, so we must seek happiness in every situation.

*live a life you will remember*

Psalm 107.


I am a fairly simple person, I like to help others, I love animals, I like quiet beaches with few people, rivers, trees, nature..
Junk food (even if I only consume it a few times), talk deeply with strangers about life and thousands of others topics while we have a beer. I don't smoke and I try to stay healthy by doing sports 6 days a week.

Without wanting to brag, I know how to cook pretty well hahaha.
