We sat down with Néstor Núñez, one of the Senior Sales Managers here at Visit San Antonio, to get a feel for what his favorite bike trails are and why San Antonio is perfect for your next event.  

Néstor and his wife, Sheyla. 

How long have you lived in San Antonio?:

Where are you from and what brought you to San Antonio?

NN: I was born and raised in beautiful San Juan, Puerto Rico! I worked with Hilton Hotels and eventually transferred here. I’m glad that I moved to San Antonio because it is a great place to live and raise a family!

What meetings, conventions and event markets do you primarily handle?

What do you love about working for Visit San Antonio?

Why should people host their next event in San Antonio?

NN: San Antonio is an authentic, walkable and memorable city with awesome hotels, a world-class Convention Center and the best margaritas!

When you’re not busy selling San Antonio, what do you like to do in your free time?

Describe San Antonio is three words:

NN: Diverse, Authentic, Fun!

Now for a few speed round questions:

Flour or Corn (Tortillas)?

NN: Corn

What is your favorite “hidden gem” in San Antonio?

NN: Guero’s Taco Diner. Make sure you tell Bern that Nestor sent you. You’ll know who he is as soon as you get there. My weekend habit is Mario’s of New York City because I can’t resist an amazing pizza-pie!
