About Me

¡Hey Pura Vida!

I consider myself as a friendly, polite, open minded and easy going person.

I enjoy hanging out with travelers and show them a bit of Costa Rica, going for a coffee, a beer, hiking volcanos, mountains and visiting the beach we get to know each other´s cultures :)

I love my country, you get to see many nature everywhere, pretty animals, the weather and people are so nice.

For me simple things like just going for a walk and talk while maybe having a coffee is always a great plan.

I´m currently studuying international relations and working at the same time.

My philosophy is don´t get your hopes up too much, be on the present, live according to your reality while you make things to improve it, we spend a lifetime waiting for something to happen and the only thing that happens is life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I haven´t really traveled that much, but when i}I did for the first time I met a lot of unforgettable people that nowadays I still keep in contact and hope to see them again. So, that made me realise how fascinating is having friends, experiences, memories... from all over the world and knowing that one day probably our paths will cross again

It´s all about experiencies, solidarity with travellers in exchange of sharing pur cultures, experiencies, exploring through the city.... son on. I want to share with travellers what I have received from people who have helped me

I also like making people feel better and finding a major meaning of happines in this life.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I went for a walking trail with a friend of mine, everything was fine until we got lost in the mountain. It was really scary being deep in the middle of nowhere and trying to find the way out, finally we made it and it was sucha a huge breath for us after being like an hour trapped out there haha
