Diego V.

Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, Quintana Roo, Mexico

Hello and welcome to México! I am Diego a certified private tour guide in the Riviera Maya specialized in Mayan archaeology, nature and adventure.

I was born and raised in Chiapas, Mexico, a place surrounded by natural beauties and indigenous communities. I remember that since I was a little child, I dedicated myself to explore the most beautiful corners of my country: rivers, waterfalls, archaeological ruins and climbing volcanoes. Now my job is to share these experiences with others and to raise awareness in preserving our natural resources.

Life took me to many places, and 4 years ago I decided to move to Playa del Carmen looking for a relaxing life near the beach. It is beautiful to live here, surrounded by culture, cenotes and the most beautiful beaches of Mexico. Since I arrived here I have worked as a tour guide, a very noble work and I love it. I have guided tours to Mayan ruins, underground caves, Mayan communities, jungle tours with activities like canopy, rappel, ATVs and snorkeling.

I have learned a lot about the Mayas, their flora, fauna, medicinal plants. I have even learned to speak their local language Maya Yucateco.

Now I want to share all these life experiences with you through my private tours, taking you to unique places, giving you the best of the Mexican Caribbean in your next vacation!

A Recent Review of this guide

We had so much fun and flexibility in our tour with Diego! We loved the ruins the most. Learning about the history and archaeology of the place was amazing. We went with our four year old and he made sure our son would be comfortable in all the tours so we could all have a great experience. Our son had so much fun! We enjoyed the flexibility of the tour and it felt like we were touring Tulum with a friend. Tours by locals is such a great platform for providing such a personalized experience.
