I am an entrepreneur living in Cholula, Puebla, Mexico. I studied Industrial Design and currently run a handcrafted jewelry company called Echando Flores.
I love to be a tourist in my own place, so I can show you all my favorite places.
I am not on couchsurfing to flirt. I do prefer to host women or a couple.
I can show you the city around. I can host you after I consider it whit my brother and my sister. I am usually bussy on weekdays and get home late at night, but I will try to make some space to, at least, give you tips and advice. There is so much to do in this beautiful city and also you must visit Cholula, a little town 40 minutes from downtown.
Here are some of my recomendations to do in Puebla, you cannot do much in one day. I think two days at least you have to consider.
The places you have to visit
-El barrio del artista
-El callejón de los Sapos
-El mercado de sabores
-Los Fuertes de loreto y guadalupe
You have to eat:
-Chalupas at El Parian
-Cemitas at El Carmen
-Tacos árabes & al pastor.
-Elotes and esquites. Tostiesquites if you feeling risky.
-Torta de tamal
-Sushi (just keeding)
I also know good veggie places and meals ☺️
Puebla is a Colonial city with a lot of history, there are many museums in the city but I think these are the best:
-Museo Amparo ($40 and free on monday(totally worth it))
-Muse Internacional del Barroco ($50)
-Museo José Luis Bello y Zetina (free)
-Capilla de arte de la UDLA (free)
-Museo del tecnológico de Monterrey (free)
-Galería de arte del Palacio Municipal (free sometimes)
-Museo del ferrocarril
-Museo de las artesanías (free)
-Museo regional de Puebla ($40)
Little cozy coffee shops:
-Zaranda café (puebla)
-Libros & Libros (library and good coffee) (puebla
-Casa nueve (cholula)
If you want to visit parks and walking or outdoor activity:
-Parque Metropolitano (My favorite one)
-Parque de Los fuertes de Loreto y Guadalupe (giant and beautiful with a view)
-Parque del niño poblano
If you are in party mood Puebla is not your best option. Cholula is where all the bars, clubs and pubs are:
-Licorería San pedrito (mexican pulque, all the flavors you can imagine)
-Jazzatlan (Live jazz music club)
-Container city (clubs, bars, etc)
-El diablito (mezcal)
Restaurants (non traditional)
-Cus cus (nice restaurant and coctails)
-Ocho30 (super cool and delicious restaurant)
-La berenjena (pizza)
-Mostovoi (European bread)
This is a good guide from town where I get most of my recommendations:
If you want to visit small towns nearby:
-Cholula (20 min)
-Castillo de Chautla (40 min)
-Atlixco de las Flores (40 min)
-Cuetzalan (2 hrs)
-Zacatlán Puebla (2 hrs) My sisters profile If you wanna check out Zacatlán:

If your are planning a long trip all over México (you should) these are little towns all across the country you can visit. Some hidden places not so touristy yet you'll love for sure: www.pueblosmexico.com.mx/
If you will be our guest, and you are thinking about bringing a present as a symbol of gratitude, you should know that I like collecting maps of cities of the world as amulet to visit the cities and have some knowledge before going through them. I would appreciate if you brought me one.
My sister also collects Vogue magazines from all over the world (she is a fashion designer).
So, have fun, use sunscreen, comfy shoes and and umbrella just in case.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I love discovering new places and making new friends, I think that gives a lot of meaning to life.
I love my country so much and I want to get to know others, and take advantage whenever the opportunity presents.
Current mission: find the best chilaquiles and try all the desserts of the world.
I am very interested in fashion, I love everything that has to do with design, cinematography, reading and of course discovering new places.
I enjoy doing crafts, painting, listening to music, going to the park and visit museums.
Music, Movies, and Books
My favorite movie is director Wes Anderson and I think Christian Nolan is a genius.
Check out my spotify profile: Jazmin Ortega Flores
I think everyone should read the book "Los Cuatro Acuerdos" by Miguel Ruiz, everyone would be happier.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Something I am very proud is the way I've come entrepreneur instead of getting a job in an office. This opens more possibilities to help many people rather than myself.
Teach, Learn, Share
I am always learning. I like to learn new things, I'm open to it.
I can teach you some mexican slang.
I can show you arround. Maybe we can cook something.
I would like to know about you, your country and your culture. I am a good listener. I like people with sense of humor.
I can show you where all the good meals and the best street tacos are.
What I Can Share with Hosts
My couch, of course. A comfortable place in a quiet neighborhood.
