Marcela C.

Cancun, QUINTANA ROO, Mexico

Hola buenos dias!! Hello, my name is Marcela and I am originally from Mexico City.

However I came to Cancun on vacation for 15 days and I fell in love with the Nature and especially with the local people, their hospitality and their smiles, so I decided to stay here for a while, 31 years ago!!

I love to study the History of Ancient cultures like the Maya, their heritage like the amazing Mayan Temples, the use of herbal medicine, the way they bond with the importance of the relationship with ourselves, with others and with our Mother Nature! The "we are all one" meaning and that is why I became an Archaeological Guide, so I can have the opportunity to share all these treasures of life with you!

I love the ocean, the fish, the coral reef, and sea mammals and that inspired me to become a scuba instructor, to help others overcome their fears and enjoy an amazing snorkeling tour.

My mission in life is to guide YOU through amazing moments with your loved ones no matter where we go, our goal is to enjoy every moment in contact with ourselves, Mother Nature and your loved ones. We can go swimming in cenotes, visit amazing Mayan Ruins, snorkel or dive in the beautiful Caribbean Sea, explore beautiful underground rivers, enjoy bird watching, swim with turtles or discover the magic and fascination of the Mayan Communities and spend time with them.

If you are ready to have fun in the best and safe way, here I am just for YOU!

Being able to show the beauty of my country and my country's people to visitors for more than 20 years is one of the most amazing experiences that I have ever had!

Kids and senior travelers are welcome.

So Welcome to Mexico, Riviera Maya, Playa del Carmen and Cancun!

Mi casa es tu casa!

Sincerely,

Marcela, your private tour guide!

A Recent Review of this guide

Marcela was outstanding. Her passion and knowledge was excellent. She was in communication prior to the tour, during the tour and after the tour. We requested a few things that were not standard, and she provided these without hesitation. I would highly recommend her to anyone travelling to Cancun as her enthusiasm for her work results in an excellent knowledgeable experience.
