Meet the Author

Maribeth Mellin is an award-winning journalist who has covered various aspects of Mexico for more than two decades. Her experiences there began with a long backpacking journey in the 1970s that took her from Baja to the tip of the Yucatán Peninsula. She covered the U.S.–Mexico border as a senior editor with San Diego Magazine and as a contributor for the Los Angeles Times, then left full-time employment when a publisher asked her to write a book on the coastal resorts of Mexico. Since then, Maribeth has authored or contributed to more than 20 travel books about Mexico and has received the prestigious Pluma de Plata award for her writing about the country. She has also authored books on Costa Rica, Peru, Argentina, Hawaii, and San Diego, where she lives just a few blocks from the beach with her husband, Gary. Her writings on social, legal, and medical issues, along with her travel articles, have garnered more than two dozen awards from journalism organizations.

Jane Onstott earned a bachelor’s degree in Spanish language and Hispanic literature from San Diego State University, with a year’s study in Madrid. Since then she has lived and traveled extensively in Mexico and Latin America. She worked as head of the Communication and Information office of the Charles Darwin Research Station in the Galapagos Islands, and has worked as a Spanish-language interpreter and translator in Mexico and the United States.
Jane has collaborated with colleague and friend Maribeth Mellin on several books, including San Diego Best Places (Sasquatch Books, 2002) and The Insiders’ Guide to San Diego (Globe Pequot Press, 2004). A San Diego resident, Jane travels to Mexico often for work for a variety of travel publications. Her book National Geographic Traveler Mexico describes the country’s culture and history, and gives detailed information about its most fascinating cities, towns, beaches, and archaeological sites. The second edition is due out in late 2005.
