Raul G.

Merida, Yucatan, Mexico

Hi, my name is Raul, I am 34 years old, I am married, I have 2 children and I live in Merida.

Since I was a young kid I have always loved history, languages and I think of myself as a very service oriented person. It is working as a tour guide that I feel I am fulfilling my vocation.
Among the subjects that I think I master and I am passionate about are: the ancient Maya civilization (because I am Maya), the unique natural formations of the Yucatan called "cenotes", the old colonial architecture of Mexico, the old sisal fiber plantations of the Yucatan and the habits of most common birds that come to the Yucatan to nest or rest during their migrations from the north of the Americas to the south of the Americas.
I studied hospitality & business management in university and I have been working in tourism since I was in high school at age 17. My first jobs in tourism where in business hotels and boutique hotels in my home city (Merida), I worked in hotels for 10 years getting to become the customer's service and front desk manager in a couple of the hotels. When I left the hotels a friend of mine and I opened a small restaurant which I managed for 2 years. Since 2012 I have been working as a tour guide in the southeast of Mexico, guiding Spanish and English speaking clients and since 2017 guiding French speaking clients as well.

Credentials

I am a certified tour guide since 2009. In 2014 I was awarded as the tour guide with the best reviews from clients by one of the best mexican travel companies.

Restrictions

If you come to Progreso in a cruise ship I cannot pick you up at the cruise ramp but I can meet you at the AUTOPROGRESO bus station in Progreso because that is the place where the cruise ship shuttle bus will take you to get you into the town.
