About me

"Mountaineer Guide vocation and passion. I grew up between the mountain and child wanted to be a farmer but did not reach me money; so now I climb mountains because they are the cathedrals where I practice my religion. "

I entered the world of Mountaineering at age 18 for the first time ascending the volcano Agua, performing since then more than 400 ascents in the national territory, which include the volcanoes and mountains highest in Guatemala. I promote natural and tourist wealth of Guatemala throughout its territory through adventure activities like trekking, mountaineering, mountain biking (MTB), caving, rock climbing, rope handling, rappelling, land navigation, kayaking, rafting, exploring rivers and visits to archaeological sites.
