About Me


My last couchsurfing profile was accidentally deleted and it was 5 years old, therefore, I am working my way of building a new one.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


great, have stayed in couches through-out the world and had great experiences


many, many, I am in to independent travel, homemade beer, languages, mountains, beaches, surfing and photography.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: Fight Club, Pulp Fiction, Cidade Deus, Amores Perros,
Music: Chico Cesar, Zeca Bailero.
Books: Shantaram, Love in the time of Cholera, The clash of civilizations

These are just examples, but I like many many more. Its gives you an idea of my tastes.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I moved to Washington DC with 100 dollars in my pocket and stayed there for 1 year.

One of the most amazing things I have done recently was learning basic phrases of aymara, a indigenous language that is hard to learn and is only spoken widely in highland Bolivia by one million people aprox. It was amazing seeing how the stoic expressions of the monoligual subsistance farmers change once I started talking in a language they assumed I did not speak.

Teach, Learn, Share

I could quote many people here but quotes are boring. I believe that you can only truly live if you experience as much as possible .

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can tell hosts many which places to visit in Costa Rica and give them advice about safe traveling in the country. I have always been on a shoestring as a traveler therefore I can advice people accordingly.
