I am a founder of the web magazine "Viajeros en Ruta", also a founding partner of Turismo Milpa Alta s.c., of the old region called Malacateticpac Momoxco. During the last 10 years, I have dedicated myself to doing what I like the most: to explore my roots. (My chantli-my house or country) In all this time I have known wonderful places. Many of them I have returned several times. Besides being a destination promoter, I am a freelance tourist guide. I have enjoyed unforgettable experiences. In my mind, heart, and soul there are still the sounds of the different languages inherited from our pre-Hispanic grandparents, smells, tastes, textures, music, looks, and smiles of many people. Without forgetting hostels, rancherias, camps in the mountains, long walks, markets, museums, villages, archaeological sites and wonderful natural landscapes. I am a fortunate and also convinced that tourism represents a means of union and understanding between different peoples and cultures.
