Guillermo “Memo” Gonzalez is a tour guide who specializes in the Chichen Itza area. One of his clients recently wrote: “His English was great and he was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We had been there before with a guide and did not learn nearly as much about the background on what we were seeing. I would highly recommend Memo Gonzalez if you can get him as your tour guide inside the park.”
