Hello, my name is Juan, I am from La Coruña, Galicia. I moved to London in the 90s and remained there for 20 years. I enjoyed a variety of job roles during my time there such as working in a theatre, travelling extensively working with a catering company (a subsidiary of formula 1) and manager of a department in a renowned British auction house.
A few years ago I decided to return to Spain with my family and move to the beautiful town of Santa Pola.
I held a position in the tourist Information office at the Santa Pola town hall. Over the last year I have helped tourists from all over the world. I really enjoy this role and was encouraged by many of the tourist’s appreciation of my local knowledge and had been asked a few times why I wasn’t a tour guide! I knew there were very few tour guides serving Santa Pola and I wanted to do something about it.
So after hearing about GuruWalk I decided I wanted to join and become a GuruWalk guide to show of this beautiful town that’s full of history, great food and wonderful people. So here I am and I hope to meet you all very soon.

Maravilloso Juan como guía. Un recorrido muy amplio por Santa Pola, 2 horas muy amenas. Información muy interesante. Me gusta hacer freetours, y Juan cómo guía recomendable 100%.
Juan’s knowledge and enthusiasm for Santa Pola is evident. As English speakers, he was able to speak in our native language very well which was perfect for us. A free walking tour is a fantastic public service and I would recommend this to everyone.
Juan was very personable and confident speaking in English. He has both historical, current and personal tales to share.
