About Me

Val here :)

I am a Costa Rican traveler that lived in Denmark during the craziness of 2020, then since early february of 2021 has been solo traveling. 2021 was all about Greece, Egypt, and Turkey.

2022 was all about South America, starting from my country Costa Rica, towards Panama, Colombia, Perù, Bolivia, then Belgium, Amsterdam and Kos Island, Greece.

And during 2023 I’ve been in the Middle East! Palestine & Jordan :)

Why CS? Well, it's been a bittersweet experience to use this app, but mostly sweet I would say. I think its a way of fighting our money centered world while connecting us to people, cultures and allowing us nice experiences.

I don't prefer to be caught up in a hostel with many other travelers, I want to meet locals because I believe that's the best way to really get to know a place. But I mean of course I also would love to connect with other internationals and share travel stories, so I often go online on hangouts :D

Easy out going, sometimes a bit shy, but always into a good conversation, especially with open minded people. I'm here to learn, I love learning the wisdom from other people's experiences, and willing to give out mine.

We can hang out for eating, visiting cool locations, museums, party clubs, you name it. But also if you're busy, I can sit back and relax at your home, or go out on my own, no prob.

Whenever I get to establish, ofc you'll be welcomed to my home in Costa Rica (or wherever I am :)) Atm I cannot really host because I'm on the move, but I will return the favor to all those in the CS family.


Why I’m on Couchsurfing

On the move! Interested in being hosted, meeting people and hanging out!

Music, Movies, and Books

I really love all genres of music, from classical rock, classical jazz, to modern techno (house, techhouse, Goa Psytrance,), indie, and also reggaetton (what can I do, I'm still latina) and even cumbia/salsa!
