Ralf H.

Merida, Yuc, Mexico

A Canadian who has lived in the Yucatan for 30 years, I am passionate about the area's colonial and Mayan history, its' people, language and food.

My specialty is not just getting you to the main touristic sites, but also having you get an up close and personal look at the places and people that make this area special. From talented artisans to lovely ladies that will teach you how to properly make a corn tortilla by hand to enjoying a home-cooked meal in a small village, the experience will be one you won't soon forget.
