The Host

Christian moved to Uruguay in 2014 after spending the past 15 years mostly in the United States. He has a background in Biology and a passion for nature and creating a sustainable way of living. For over a decade he developed a healing practice as an Ayurvedic and Yoga therapist, expertise that he now shares mostly through his personal cuisine.


He also enjoys being an amateur photographer, gardener, beekeeper and an occasional horseback rider.

"Los Paraisos" began as the dream of the late Elena Meerapfel, a wonderful and courageous woman that respected all living things and among many projects started the only almond plantation in the area. It is now Christian's mission along with his family and Elena's niece, Andrea Meerapfel, to continue expanding on this vision and to share a piece of this paradise with all his guests.
