I was born and raised in Monterrey, México. I've been in love with my country, its traditions, and its prehispanic cultures since I was a kid. When I first learned about the ancient cultures of Mexico, I was fascinated and sought out any archaeology, Maya, or Aztec book I could get my hands on. I also love nature so much that, in my youth, I would take long hikes in the mountains that surround my hometown, sometimes camping out for a whole week. There’s nothing I love more than a bonfire under a sky full of stars. Deciding to experience other cultures, I moved to California for 4 years and was immersed in the diversity of American culture. I loved getting to meet people from all over the world. It was an experience that widened my view of the world and showed me the differences in people’s histories and languages. I then traveled around the U.S., Cuba, Belize, Spain, and Honduras.
When I finally returned to Mexico, I moved to the Yucatan peninsula because I had always dreamed of its beaches and wanted to be closer to Mayan culture. Moving to Cancun was a dream come true. Its coast is beautiful, its jungle lush, and its Mayan heritage strong. After that, I fell in love with Playa del Carmen and decided to move here after a few years because of its small town atmosphere and the diversity of the people that pass through. I traveled around a lot of Mexico, but still have a lot to explore and learn. I've called the Yucatan Peninsula my home since 2008 and wouldn't trade it for anything.
