Suzanne Barbezat of About.com Mexico Travel Guide; Julie Schwietert Collazo of Collazo Projects, Michele Kinnon of Buy Playa, Betsy McNair of My Mexico Tours, Kay Walten of LocoGringo.com, Sylvie Laitre of Mexico Boutique Hotels, Katherine Fisher of  Destination PEACE and Feed the Hungry San Miguel, Camilo Olea of Cancun is Safeand Susie Albin-Najera creator of  The MEXICO Report.

“Being able to communicate a positive message about Mexico was the main motivation in creating this project,” said Albin-Najera. “This platform will facilitate and expedite the goal of presenting more positive stories about Mexico and will give readers a choice when consuming news about Mexico.”

Nominations begin immediately and are open to anyone. Visitors to the site are encouraged to enter as frequently as possible. Nominees will be showcased once a month.

    Susie, I concur with your words. I left the states, for one reason, because of the negative slant of the news media. I would opt for angling to the good about a place and slightly mention the bad, which is everywhere anyway. Power of Positive Thinking.

    A site about Mexico, except for anything negative. Recent news about a Calgarian woman beat up, Mexican caught and charged for the crime, not a peep here!

    Is keeping big news from your readers part of the game here? You tell 1/2 the story which doesn’t help anyone. Does ignoring the problem help?

    Let us know.

      Hi – it’s good that you ask this question. Since most of what you hear in the news about Mexico is negative, I present this site as an alternative, to offset the negative news that make the big headlines, with the good news you never hear about. For example, if all you heard about Los Angeles were crime reports, people would never want to visit Los Angeles. And you would miss out on 99% of the good things LA has to offer.
