Hola! My name is William from San Juan, Puerto Rico. I have 4 years giving tours at tourist attraction in Puerto Rico. As a tour guide I do love sharing with enthusiasm the Puerto Rican culture, architecture, and history. I am a very creative and fun guide who likes meeting new people, and who passionately loves this work in tourism. I also like to combine storytelling with tasting some drinks, local bites, like empanadillas (local turnovers)—delicious!
