Discover Corps' Guide: Rodolfo Juarez

Rodolfo was born in Tlacochahuaya, a small farming village in the Valley of Oaxaca. He is the director of a small family-run project devoted to promoting the importance of vast Mexican culture, in-depth information, useful tips, and insider stories about the history of Mexico.  He attended High School and learned English in Southern California before returning to his homeland to share his passion for history, art, food, and the vast spherical idea of Oaxaca and Mexico.  His work has allowed him to meet people from all over the world and collaborate as a cultural advisor for the making of Coco (Disney/Pixar 2017) an Oscar-winning movie, a truly unforgettable event.  When he's not leading Discover Corps trips, he has a small farm where he and his wife produce eggs, alfalfa, corn, beans, and vegetables- all organic! Rodolfo looks forward to welcoming you on this Discover Corps trip to Oaxaca and making it a memorable experience!
