Bloggers Offer Everyday Experiences about Mexico

Community Manager Blogs of Mexico Today

When we find blogs we like, we want to share them with you. Since starting The MEXICO Report, we’ve come across many resourceful blogs along the way that assist travelers or potential travelers, business people, expats, local residents, volunteers and much more when it comes to choices about Mexico.

These particular blogs highlighted below are part of the Mexico Today program, where I’ve had the opportunity to become familiar with even more Mexico blogs that exist in the blogosphere. Each of these sites offer something topical and diverse, and display an enthusiastic style through each writer’s unique voice, complemented with outstanding images. These are the images of Mexico that you should be seeing.

Created by professionals from the U.S., Canada, South America and Mexico, these writers and bloggers specialize in various fields, environments and niches. They highlight everyday, real life experiences in Mexico, not the dogmatic and isolated crime reports delivered by mainstream media.

Not only do these blogs offer readers another viewpoint of Mexico, they offer a country that is ripe for travel, living, business or retirement, all from first hand experience.

We know there are millions of Mexico enthusiasts in the world who share a love for Mexico, travel and culture. I feel extremely fortunate to be among these forward thinking, proactive, resourceful traveler writers and bloggers and to be able to share even more stories and experiences about Mexico on another level.

The blogs below are part of the Mexico Today program. There are a lot of links, so prepare your ojos.

    Hi — I’ve just discovered Mexico Report and am already a strong fan.

    I don’t have a blog, but help manage a forum which features many photo reports on Mexico, mostly from Oaxaca:

    It would be lovely if you’d check it out, and an honor if you’d choose to feature it in your blog links.

    Thanks!

    I blog about raising a gringo kid in a small fishing village in Mexico. http://www.visitlamanzanilla.com/blog/
    Being the only expat family in a village that survives by tourism has been a learning experience!

    This is such a wonderful resource, I’ve already referenced many of these blogs in the past and can’t wait to check out the ones that I am unfamiliar with. I also run a blog which is part of the Mexico Today Network, it discusses the medical tourism industry — specifically as it pertains to Mexico, but also on a global level. Please check it out, I would love feedback! Thank you! http://www.medtravelmexico.com. I’m also on Twitter @medtravelmexico!

    Hi Susie,

    Coincidentally I found this article/list whilst reading a recent “themexicoreport” article about La Paz, the city where I live and have recently started blogging regularly.

    My blog is about the life of myself and my wife in the city, me as a newcomer to the city and her as a returning resident, as well as about real estate news, as it is hosted on our real estate firm site, however the main focus is on latest news in the region as you will see.

    Thank you,
