I am a San Telmonian: Having immersed deeply into San Telmo's essence, now I want to show you its authenticity. My first visit to San Telmo dates back to 2011. It soon became clear for me that this was my place to be, as I had been enchanted with its rich cultural heritage. Then, as a resident of the Barrio and manager of an international flatshare, I started sharing my passion for San Telmo and its significance for Buenos Aires's identity to people from all around the globe. Meanwhile, I've discovered many culinary treasures in the area. Venezuelan-born, I moved to BA in 2016. I am an entrepreneur and also recently finished my Master's. When I am not daydreaming with the hood's bohemian vibe or chatting with the locals, I enjoy playing guitar and discussing the effects of gentrification. Join us on Instagram @santelmoexperience!
