Local Experts: Cancun, Laura Winfree

Laura Winfree has called the beach city of Cancun home for more than a decade. Originally from Richmond, Virginia, Laura first came to Maya Riviera at age 19 to study tourism at university. It wasn’t long before she turned her passion for Mexico into her job so that she could work as a travel writer, content marketing consultant, and weekend beach bum. She has served as a Cancun expert for Travel + Leisure and Lonely Planet and has written luxury hotel reviews for The Telegraph. A skilled copywriter, translator, and marketing professional, Laura also works with travel industry clients on branded content. She lives in downtown Cancun and still never tires of exploring Mexico’s many beaches.
