Angel Rodriguez – Life in Mérida

I was born in the state of Tabasco but my family moved to Mérida, Yucatan when I was 2 years old.

Even though Yucatecos do not consider me Yucateco, I do.  Don’t tell them, but I am more Yucateco than they are!

I have made it a priority in my life to learn about the culture, the history & especially the food.

Mérida is a gastronomic destination. Therefore, I’ve spent most of my working years in the food industry: focusing on customer service, attending details, & ensuring customers have the best experience they can have.

I’ve been fortunate to work in a variety of types of businesses & restaurants.

One of my favorite places to work was El Colon Ice Cream Shop on Paseo de Montejo.

It was here that I realized the relationship between owners, customers, & employees. We were all treated like family.

That is the relationship we developed over time; supporting each other and sharing our stories of life’s triumphs and tragedies.

This is my foundation for customer service. I know making clients feel like they are part of a family is the secret to an organization’s success.

As the Vice President of Mérida Retirement Tours, it’s my intent to connect locals, expats, tourists & travelers over delightful food, artesanal beers, & craft cocktails during our gastronomic lunches & dinners.

We offer a full range of services including driving lessons, driver’s license assistance, private driving, short-term rentals, & much, much more to help make your Life in Mérida easier. 

Just let us know what you need & we can help you or refer you to one of our trusted vendors. 

I look forward to meeting you in Mérida!
