Cristina Alonso

Local Expert

Born and raised in Mexico City, I called Madrid and New York home for a while, but I found it impossible to escape the wonderful chaos of my hometown—I’m a chilanga through and through. I spend most of my time and money on food, mezcal, and concerts. As a freelancer, I’ve written for Time Out New York, Remezcla, Grub Street, and Hoja Santa, and I’m currently a staff writer for Travel + Leisure México. Find me on Instagram: @soycristina.
