About the author (2011)

Christina Paulette Colón has three great passions in life: nature, teaching, and travel. She has been everywhere from Borneo (where she lived for 2 years) to Bonaire. With a Ph.D. in Ecology and a Master's in Environmental Education, she is a talented educator, accomplished writer, and experienced editor (of everything from scientific articles to children's books).

Alexis Lipsitz Flippin is a freelance writer and former Frommer's senior editor. She is the author of Frommer's Portable St. Maarten/St. Martin, Anguilla & St. Barts and Frommer's Portable Turks & Caicos and has written and edited for consumer magazines including Self, American Health, and Rolling Stone.

John Marino, the author of Frommer’s Puerto Rico, lives in San Juan, where he covers local and political news for the San Juan Star as city editor. He has written about Puerto Rico for the New York Times, Conde Nast Traveler, and other publications.

As a team of veteran travel writers, Darwin Porter and Danforth Prince have produced various titles for Frommer's, including guides to Italy, France, England, and Germany. A film critic, columnist, and broadcaster, Porter is also a Hollywood biographer. His recent releases include Brando Unzipped, documenting the private life of Marlon Brando, and Jacko: His Rise and Fall, the first complete biography ever written on the tumultuous life of Michael Jackson. Prince was formerly employed by the Paris bureau of the New York Times and is today the president of Blood Moon Productions. Porter and Prince's latest non-travelrelated venture, jointly co-authored and published in 2008 by Blood Moon, is Hollywood Babylon—It's Back!, which one critic described as "the hottest compilation of intergenerational scandal in the history of Hollywood."
