About Me


Make people SMILE!


Hey mates! My name is Carlos and I'm from Guayaquil-Ecuador!. Im an easy going dude, who enjoys good english indie music, teaching, travelling, tennis, surfing, talk about dentistry and hang out by the beach.

Im about to start a graduate dental program at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor next year (July 2014). In the meantime, I will be in Ecuador with the possibility of travelling to nearby countries. I have a lot of experience traveling around South America and Ecuador so don't hesitate to inquired tips.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Helping ppl on the posts, attending meetings, catching up for drinks and used to host ppl in my beach house


A very good friend from England told me about CS years ago but thought it was another Facebook, big mistake!. Years later, met a cs group at a hostel in Quito and made me research this site again. Since then id been helping ppl answering their post messages and hosting at my beach house in Ecuador. Ecuador, NYC and Chicago are awesome places to live the CS experience!
