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
Diego was a great guide for our half day adventure to the Tulum ruins and private cave and cenote tour. We started with the Tulum ruins where he provided a great explanation of each of the key sites, their original purpose and how the people of Tulum interacted with those and the surrounding cities. Our second stop was a private cave walk/swim-through, the highlight of which was a beautiful cenote. We really enjoyed our tour and would definitely book Diego again.
