LongeviQuest is delighted to share that Juan Gabriel Hernández Matamoros turns 110 years old. He is a Costa Rican supercentenarian recognized as the oldest man in the country.

Juan Gabriel Hernández Matamoros was born on 19 October 1913 in Naranjo, Alajuela Province, Costa Rica.

He only attended school until the fourth grade because he left to work on the family farm where they grow coffee, bananas, sugarcane, and yucca. He also learned and became skilled in making oxen carts and other forms of carpentry and construction from some of his uncles. This became his lifelong career until he retired at the age of 80.

On 22 August 1936, Mr. Matamoros married Claudia Rodriguez Alvarado (1914-2008) and had seven children with her. The couple were married for 72 years before his wife passed away in 2008.

He attributes his longevity to avoiding vices, eating well, having at least eight hours of sleep at night, and working hard. This is what makes him to be in perfect health and still able to do some exercise on a daily basis.

Mr. Matamoros currently lives in Heredia, Heredia Province, Costa Rica, along with his daughter.

LongeviQuest sends our warmest greetings of celebration for Mr. Matamoros’ 110th Birthday. We wish you the best.
