Ana Chávez Arana / Writer, Teacher, Guide
Growing up in the suburbs of Mexico City, my favorite day of the week were Sundays, when my family and I would get in the car, travel for one hour and arrive to Centro Histórico, the Old City. There we would go to theaters, museums, and restaurants that opened up a new world to me. As a History student at university my enthusiasm for the city was such that I started giving tours.
After some years of helping travelers acquaint themselves with Mexican culture, I decided to take this role further and train as a Spanish teacher. Whether touring or teaching, I see my job as as a way to guide people into my culture, which I am so passionate about.
