Rodolfo Carbajal, who is also known by many simply as Rodolfo, is a singer who is reminiscent of Andrea Bocelli and Julio Iglesias. Blind since birth, he began performing on the streets of Guadalajara as a child. With his wife, Julia, who also has been blind since birth, Rodolfo moved to Puerto Vallarta eight years ago. Extremely versatile, Rodolfo goes beyond his native Spanish with some songs in English, French, and Italian. Often helping others, Rodolfo is a regular at charity events, which notably include a major annual fund raiser for the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Rodolfo placed second in Mexico’s National Competition for Blind Singers in 2019. This was followed with a podcast dedicated to him by the Puerto Vallarta Travel Show. Rodolfo has been featured by the PV Mirror. He was covered almost weekly in a column in the Vallarta Tribune. Rodolfo continually expands his repertoire and his ability to perform in multiple languages under the guidance of highly regarded performer and coach Jean-Guy Comeau. Whether providing background music or on center stage before hundreds of people, he is a crowd pleaser.

We are attracted to the activities and music. We also like to feel the forms of many sculptures. Always, we enjoy hearing people having a good time. This is a very active place.” – Rodolfo Carbajal
