The Nicoya Peninsula is reputed to be one of the few places in the world where people live the longest. And don Victoriano Fajando Fajardo is living proof.

The Dulce Nombre de Nicoya resident celebrated his birthday 102 on Friday.

Don Victoriano is a lifelong farmer who never went to school, because back then he would have had to walk hours to get to school.

He married young to doña Dora Hernández Pérez, who today is still his wife, after 72 years of marriage.

The couple have four daughters, five grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

At 102 years of age don Victoriano is walking without a cane, is a lover of rancheras and so happy that he wants to live another 100.
