Miami Herald Travel Section (US)

Miami Herald Travel Section of  The Miami Herald Newspaper has “no hard-and-fast rules about the kinds of stories we buy. Well written, well researched stories that we cannot easily get on the wires get our attention. We tend to buy more for theme issues (see Editorial Calendar.) To be considered, copy for theme issues must be received four to six weeks in advance of the publication date. We also look kindly on candidates for our Quick Trips features (see below.)

Your best bets are stories about Latin America, the Caribbean, Florida and any destination in which children are an integral part of the experience.”
