ArnoldoMexico City, Mexico" ..."



I was born here. I love it. I always sensed something special about it but never knew what it was until I lived in New York. Mexico's uniqueness lies on a long ago major impact between two cultures thath now melt into a fascinating blend of colors, people and tastes; traditions, parties and smells; history, love life and death. Explore from the world wide known places to those I have been discovering by myself or with my local and foreign friends. When I travel I wonder what locals do, how they live, what they enjoy or complain about, their favorite places and habits. Curiosity drives me to the unusual stuff. I like to imagine I am one of them and do what they do. We can go to the days when the legend says an eagle once landed in the middle of a lake, or to the current unsettling and inciting Mexico, so full of contrasts that you will have the feeling of being witnessing one reality and suddenly being moved to a totally different one. Feel and be safe while experiencing those things that made you choose Mexico, I can actually try the hot sauces before you do! Come with keen opened senses, you will keep them busy! Mexico is about diversity and surprise.

Local experience

Since I am a traveler too I know what is appealing to the foreigner eyes. You can expect a friendly, polite, reliable, creative and always on time partner who can take you not only to the interesting or hot spots, I can also take you to some nice little towns around Mexico City. If you let me know in advance what you are after I can figure out an exciting and enriching experience you will not forget. I am always opened to suggestions and improvisation.

Arnoldo was a pleasure to spend out day with in Mexico City during our long lay over, He met us at the airport, arranged a taxi to take us into the historic centre and paid for it, until I could find an atm to withdraw some cash. He really was a fine example of a local friend, friendly warm and open, wanting to give us the best experience he could in his city. As well as showing us the historical centre he told us about it, as well as shared some of his life, the politics in the city and country and spoke about his family, and asked us about our lives as well. To show how considerate he was, knowing we were just on a layover and likely hadn't thought about sunscreen, which we did need, he brought it with him. And yes we hadn't thought of sunscreen and would have had a burn without it. We had asked him to take us to a local restaurant for good food, and he took us to one of the ones he liked., and the food was very good, different than we had eaten before, which is exactly what we had hoped for. As we had flown in on a red eye flight, arriving at 07:00, about 2:30 we decided that it was time to head back to the airport, a little earlier than planned, but our bodies were saying no more exploring. Arnoldo made arrangements for a safe taxi to take us back to the airport. I would recommend Arnoldo as someone to spend an enjoyable day with, it really did feel like we were with a friend. If/When we go back to Mexico City I will definitely contact him again.
