Amy Jones & Angel Rodriguez 

I fell in love with the Yucatan Peninsula in 2006 and made it my dream to eventually move to Mexico when I got close to retirement. During my research trip Mérida, I fell in love with this magical city. Shortly after moving in December of 2019, I fell in love yet again, this time with my husband, Angel. So, you might say the stars aligned to bring me to Mérida at exactly the right time. 

Since 2001, I helped hundreds of clients move and transition into new lives including retirement, post-divorce, death of a spouse, or health issues. Now, it’s my turn to help you move, transition, and find a new life in Mérida. It’s our passion to show you all of the wonderful aspects of our beautiful city. From to gastronomy to culture to art to music, Mérida has something for everyone. 

Angel and I look forward to meeting you and being your personal tour guides!
