About Me


Descubrir mi instancia de plenitud... ese momento de realización personal que puedes encontrar mientras viajas y descubres otro mundo!


Well... sometimes it´s dificult to describe myself ´cause everything is changing such a continue way, but I´m gonna say the basic things and you´ll see more while meeting me:

I was born in Tuluá, which is a small city one and a half hours away from Cali. I grew up and lived there before starting the University when I decided to move to Cali for more than five years. Actually, you can find me in these two cities, So, if you want to visit Tuluá, just tell me to create a real good turistic-guide and giving to you a pretty experience during your trip.

I like meeting cool people from every part of this crazy world, knowing about their cultures, life styles and generating a great moment to learn as much as posible. I enjoy traveling a lot specially to the places with nature because I adore getting relax and feel peace into myself. And finally I like cooking, walking around the city and drinking with friends...!!!


Living always with a positive attitude in life and learn as much I can!!!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I can participate by giving couch, sharing all kind of experiences and teaching to others about practical tips like how to increase the abilities speaking spanish, fixing typical food and other knowledges that could appear!


I started being member of CS since August, 2008 and from that moment, I´ve met so many cool people, in fact, actually I have many good friens thanks to CS and of course, I´ve had special times giving couch to others because I could learn about languages and cultures. Definitely, It has been one of the best experiences in my life and I hope continuing living this CS project!


I love walking around the cities, meeting new people, cooking food from other countries, traveling to places with so much nature, drinking beers, learning languages and talk about diferent topics with my guests and Cs people in general.
