For Lynne Bairstow, Mexico has become more home to her than her native United States. After exploring the country and living in Puerto Vallarta for most of the past 14 years, she’s developed a true love of Mexico and its complex, colorful culture. Her local friends now claim she has patas saladas—a term translated as “salty feet” and which means that she has become a true Vallarta local. Her travel articles on Mexico have been published in the New York Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Los Angeles Times, Private Air, Luxury Living, and the Mexicana and Alaska Airlines in-flight magazines. In 2000, Lynne was awarded the Pluma de Plata, an honor granted by the Mexican government to foreign writers, for her work with the Frommer’s guide to Mexico.
