Another Day in Paradise is an independent magazine founded in 1999 by Publisher Catherine Krantz to serve as an English language resource for visitors, foreign residents and nationals seeking in-depth information about life in Mexico.


ADIP was printed from 1999 – 2011 in full color glossy, 60-page editions and was read by hundreds of thousands of tourists and ex-pats all across Mexico.  The magazine celebrates “all things Mexico” with a focus on art, culture, history, food, lifestyle, travel, real estate investment, community and philanthropic opportunities.  ADIP’s mission is high quality promotion for high quality tourism, promoting sustainable tourism and vibrant communities.

ADIP was a full color glossy print magazine in Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo for twelve years and print and digital publication reaching over 15,000 monthly readers for  3 years.  Another Day in Paradise magazine has now transitioned into being an actively archived online publication housed here at This evolution expanded the content to cover more nationally-oriented topics while reaching an even broader international audience with a richer content experience.

ADIP offers print publications in multiple cities across Mexico: the annual Wine & Dine Guide for restaurants and bars as well as the Real Estate Guide which lists properties for sale and resources for foreigners interested in buying in Mexico.

Mexico is home to over 1 million resident expatriates nationwide, and is host to over 22 million international tourists each year.  ADIP Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo and its related products reach over 150,000 readers a year.


Advertising is available for both the online magazine, as well as, our print publications in multiple markets.
