The Costa Chica (short coast in Spanish) is one of two regions in Mexico with significant black communities, the other being the state of Veracruz on the Gulf coast. The Costa Chica is a 200-mile long coastal region beginning just southeast of Acapulco, Guerrero and ending at Huatulco in the state of Oaxaca. While the Costa Chica is home to many blacks, there are also many indigenous groups, as well. For more info, see Where Did Mexico's Blacks Go? ... Blacks in Mexico: A Forgotten Minority ...

Hola!!! I was doing family tree work and ran across your blog! Thanks for sharing our world with a world who doesn't even know- or recognize- that we exist. I'm a Brown girl who is tracing her way back in time. Part of this is an extension from Coahuila, Mex. So I find this blog even more lovely! lol
Thanks Once Again!

Hola, Kay!
Hope you are having success tracing your way back in time and that (by now) you know even more about your fabulous roots in Mexico.
Glad you like the blog!
