About the blog

Bicultural Familia is a bicultural / Latino lifestyle blog that celebrates familia, food, culture, and travel in South Texas.  The blog is based in Harlingen, Texas, which is about 30 minutes from the U.S. / Mexican Border and the Gulf of Mexico, an area known for its gorgeous weather, palm trees, and delicious Tex-Mex food!  It’s also a well-known travel destination, just minutes from the tropical paradise of South Padre Island and a short drive away from a popular cruise ship port in Galveston, Texas.

A little more about us

I’m Chantilly Patiño, the editor, photographer and vlogger behind Bicultural Familia.  Here on the blog, I create content around the topics of familia, food, culture, and travel. I’ve also written about cat care, parenting bicultural kids, multicultural / multiracial families and a variety of lifestyle content.  Some of my favorite stories I’ve shared on the blog are about our family adventures or Mexican-inspired recipes.

We have two kids, ages 5-year old boy (Antonio) and 11-year old girl (Lilyana), who we’re raising gender neutral (basically, we let them choose what they like and don’t force gender norms). We also have a cat named Dusty, who is a 1 year old tabby.

My husband and I area in our mid-30s / early-40s and focus most of our energy on quality time with the kids and teaching them the importance of having values and embracing their cultural identities.
