I am Cuauhtémoc, federal guide, vegetarian, certified diver and lover of marine life and history. Curious by nature and always looking for stories to tell. I have lived in the Yucatan Peninsula for 5 years and I am still amazed with everything that this wonderful place offers us. Reserve your place with me! I want to show you something that you can remember all your life :)

Cuauhtemoc was great - very fun and seemed genuinely passionate about the job however we would have liked more history about the city. There is a lot of food and drink recommendations around the city which was good, and we really enjoyed visiting the markets but it would have been good to see some more monuments and historical buildings etc. The tour was supposed to be two hours and we finished in under 1hr 45 mins so there was definitely more time for a bit more.

Had a great time on the tour with Cuauhtémoc! He gave a good history of Mexico, Yucatan and Mérida, and then we headed to the market in Centro and pointed out the best places to eat. Would definitely do again!
