Discover the Hidden Gems of Mexico

Hello and welcome to Mexico Travel Secrets! My name is Melissa Douglas and I am a British Travel Writer based in Merida, Mexico. Mucho gusto! 

I have been working in travel media for eight years now and during that time I have produced written content for a number of high-profile publications across the globe including Forbes Travel Guide, Matador Network, and The Huffington Post, along with numerous online blogs and magazines. 

After five years of living in Greece, I came to Mexico on vacation, fell in love, and never left. Through the pages of this website, I want to help travelers like you explore Mexico like a local, and discover off-the-beaten-path highlights that most tourists don’t even know about.
