I am from the Caribbean island 🏝 of Puerto Rico 🇵🇷 ( we are small, but you might know us because of our music 🎶: Like Bad Bunny, Daddy Yankee, Ricky Martin, Marc Anthony…etc… )

Hablo español también ✌🏼 e Português.

I’m an engineer who worked in the space 🚀 industry with NASA. I recently quit my job to dedicate my time to my passion which is to travel ✈️ , create content 🎞️ and tell stories around the 🗺️ ! I really love to experience the best of different cultures and my favorite way of doing it is by backpacking 🎒🥾.

I enjoy meeting locals to better enjoy the culture and the country. My passion is to tell the world that no matter where you are from, in the end we all look for pure happiness 😃.

Saludos a todos!

Soy de la isla 🏝 del encanto de Puerto Rico 🇵🇷. Dejé mi trabajo de ingeniero 🚀 para dedicarme a seguir mi pasión de viajar, fotografía y crear contenido alrededor del mundo 🗺.

Me encanta conocer locales para llevarme lo más esencial de su país y su cultura.

Soy una persona muy llevadera 😁 , no juzgo por nada, amo la naturaleza y también me sobra energía para un poco de fiesta y compartir ( todo con un buen balance 🕺en la vida). Puedo decir que me gusta hacer de todo y soy MUUY feliz 😀.

Sin quieres puedes seguir mi canal de YouTube 📺 para ver algunos de mis proyectos: @Backpackingluis:

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Instead of staying at a tourist hotel/airbnb why not emerge myself more into the local culture? ✌🏼 Same when I host I want to show the best of my city and have a great time learning about new cultures.
