This summer is my 15th in Merida and in that time the attention of the international press has transformed this sleepy little town into a must on everyone´s bucket list.  It all started with a Christmas visit from David Keeps that produced this Travel+Leisure article a year later.  New York Magazine and Enroute magazine soon follow with a flock of snow birds.  The New York Times and the LA Times came a couple of years later at the height of the real estate boom.  Martha Stewart and Rick Bayless discovered Merida and suddenly Saveur, Food & Wine and the San Francisco Gate feature articles on the Maya cuisine and Departures Magazine calls Merida: Mexico´s Foodie Hotspot!  The fashionistas arrive for a wedding of an editor from W and  then Sarah Ruffin Costello comes and T Magazine call´s me ¨Merida´s social conduit¨.   LA Times comes back to see what the hell is going on as  every other episode House Hunters Intl. is about the Yucatan. The NY Times comes back to see the Yucatan´s Uber-Couple Francesca Bonato and Nicolas Malleville at their home in Valladolid.  In 2014 Joanna Weinberg came for a month in the Yucatan and wrote an article for Conde Nast Travel UK.  She recommended me to write an article for Porter magazine which you can only see by subscription or here.   In 2015 Sterling Kelso came back for Travel+Leisure. The new Rizzoli Book Casa Mexico, At Home in Merida and the Yucatan featuring two of our houses photographed by Tim Street-Porter.  Introspective Magazine as well as Vogue and Architectural Digest feature images from the book and our homes. People and Money Magazines recommend visiting Merida in January to save money and see less people, but if you really wanted to do that you´d come in May when it´s 105F wouldn´t you.  On our 15th Anniversary in Merida Condé Nast Traveler published a great article about Merida.
