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.

A Recent Review of this guide

A perfect day! Ralf provides lots of options so that you can adjust the trip along the way to see what you want and spend the amount of time you want at each location. He is knowledgeable and personable and is clearly well-liked by all of the locals we encountered along the way. The driver, José, was an added bonus - helpful, informative, and funny. It was a great way to be introduced to the Yucatan, and it helped to clarify what we wanted to do for the remainder of our visit.
