The Insider’s Guide to Mexico personal essay collections are curated by the Mexico Writers group on Facebook.

The two volumes represent the best of a diverse group of people who are deeply connected to Mexican culture.

Both essay collections are free on Kindle.


The Insider’s Guide to the Best of Mexico is a unique collection of insider stories that you won’t find anywhere else. It’s your passport to a country full of color, culture, and contrasts.

Forty-two writers, artists, educators, travelers, business owners and others share their experiences inside today’s Mexico. Most of those who contributed stories are expatriates who have found opportunity and inspiration in Mexico. From hidden beaches to one-of-a-kind art to historic gems, The Insider’s Guide to the Best of Mexico offers both recommendations and revelations.

These stories are neither formal guidebook, social commentary, nor a substitute for unbiased news. They share a landscape and lifestyle that have a place in the hearts of so many.

Best of Mexican Holidays


Celebrate life, death, and everything in between!

Holiday celebrations in Mexico are often noisy, raucous, and colorful affairs. Exuberant and uplifting, they are rooted in religion, community, and family.

This collection of travel essays brings you all of it–the excitement and color and crowds and traditions–of uniquely Mexican holiday celebrations. From the rituals of the Day of the Dead to the historic grito of Mexican Independence Day to the magic of a Mexican Christmas posada, this is the real Mexico.

Twenty-two contributors banded together to share the magic of Mexican celebrations. We are writers, artists, educators, travelers, business owners and others who have fallen in love with a culture. Most are expatriates living in Mexico who have found both opportunity and inspiration there. Includes 57 original photographs.
