Maggie Rosado

I was born in Mérida and grew up bilingual and bicultural in a Yucateco/Canadian family. Because my parents both worked in tourism, I grew up climbing the pyramids at Chichén Itzá with my dad and exploring the Centro Histórico with my mom, fostering my love for the state I call home.

The best part about growing up “Yucanadian” was eating Frijol con Puerco and  Mac and Cheese, celebrating Hanal Pixan and Halloween, and of course, developing my interest in different languages and cultures which is how I became a translator and writer.

I’m currently Editor at Yucatán Today and contribute regularly with articles about my own experience of growing up in Yucatán, as well as our local destinations, foods, and traditions.
