¡Hola! Hello! I’m Kate Dana

I am a travel writer passionate about Spanish, warm sunshine, and the continual pursuit of living a life of dreams.

In late 2022, I created The Confident Coconut to inspire readers to develop their travel confidence and seek new adventures.

Due to several major, life-altering setbacks in 2023, the Confident Coconut was set aside and eventually put to rest indefinitely.

At the start of 2024, I created something fresh and new: Cocameca, where I share my expertise in culture, travel, and lifestyle to help readers take fun-focused ideas and turn them into real plans. Please join me!
