About the Authors FIONA DUNLOP Fiona Dunlop's taste for the tropics, for ancient cultures and for developing countries has been tested to the full while writing travel books on Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia, Vietnam, India, Costa Rica and Mexico. Before her immersion in this peripatetic lifestyle, she spent 15 years in Paris where she worked in, and wrote about, the arts for numerous art and interior design magazines. Now based in London, she continues to cover contemporary design between her travels. Her articles have appeared in the Observer, the Sunday Times, The Times, Elle Decoration, and Homes & Gardens amongst others. JANE EGGINTON Jane Egginton is a travel writer and researcher who writes magazine features as well as guide books. Jane has written for many publishers including Reader's Digest and Thomas Cook, and was a winner in the Observer Young Travel Writer of the Year Award. Jane has travelled extensively throughout Britain, Asia, Australasia and the Americas, both for work and for pleasure. Central and South America remain favourite destinations both for their beautiful, varied landscapes and for the adventures and activities they offer. She is currently writing a guide book to Mexico.
