Suzanne Barbezat is a writer specializing in Mexico travel, culture and food. She is based in Oaxaca, Mexico and has traveled extensively throughout the country.

In 1997 Suzanne undertook a solo trip throughout Latin America and lost her heart to Mexico. Since then she has worked as a teacher, tour guide, and writer, but she's never happier than when sharing her knowledge and love of Mexico and introducing others to the delights she has found there.

Her work has been published on, SpanglishBaby and The Latin Kitchen, among others. She co-hosts a monthly Mexico chat on Twitter, Mexchat, and she is the author of a book entitled Frida Kahlo At Home published by Frances Lincoln.

Every time I discover a new destination in Mexico I am amazed and astounded by all this country has to offer, from its miles of gorgeous beaches, fascinating ancient sites and beautiful colonial architecture, to its colorful festivities and rich cultural traditions. I hope to introduce you to this beautiful country so that you will be inspired to discover it for yourself!
