Quick Facts


Fun fact: My best friend, Emilia, is Mexican. Like a real ass Mexican - born and raised in Mazatlan. She has opened my world when it comes to exploring a side to Mexico that is usually invisible to tourists. Together, she and I write travel guides to Mexico - and this will be your first taste of what it's like to see a mixed perspective of an Americana and a Mexicana...

mexico is so much more than all-inclusive resorts! While even I enjoy the occasional all-inclusive resort, my goal is to help you dive into real mexican culture beyond cabo, cancun and tulum (all of which are terrible representations of the real mexico). Sorry not sorry. 

Best Hotels 

  1. Mexico City: The "New York City" of Latin America! Mexico City is both bougie and humble. Eat breakfast at a local market in the morning then have dinner at a 7-course chef's table. It's all about the food! 
  2. Puerto Vallarta: Forget the all-inclusive resorts. You want to walk the cobblestone streets, take panga boats to waterfalls, go whale watching on a catamaran! 
  3. Baja Sur: Go kayaking with wild dolphins, snorkeling with a colony of sea lions, and swimming with sharks. Baja Sur is wild! The best way to experience it by renting a car and doing a road trip. Ps. Avoid Cabo.    
  4. Oaxaca: Okay, I still haven't been but it's on my bucket list especially for Dia de Los Muertos. Have any Oaxaca tips? Message me on Instagam @sologirlstravelguide.

Sopes - Similar to a tostada, topped with meat and veggies, but smaller and with a fluffier masa base.
