Stephanie Carmon

Editor, Writer and Creator of MID City Beat

“I have lived in Merida, Yucatan for twelve years and love my life here. Merida is growing into a major metropolitan city before our eyes and every day there are new people, new businesses, and super cool places to check out. But aside from just knowing where to go and what to do, I have met incredibly talented people here with a great story to tell. That is why I have started this publication which is a website, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube telling you all about Yucatan. We give the  reader and viewer an inside look into the places to check out in Merida, as well as share stories about the lives and successes of the movers and shakers in this town. This city is alive with cultural traditions, a culinary scene that wows world-renowned food critics, bohemian places to chill and high-end classy clubs to sip on a martini mixed by a professional mixologist. Every day and night of the week you can find something interesting to do. With this website/blog, we can give insight to foreigners and Mexicans alike on things worth doing here in this ciudad blanca!”
