Mayte has a hurricane personality that has made her famous in Juchitan.She’s a dressmaker, a performer and a professional show off. She changes ‘looks’ like a chameleon.


Mayte is an active member of Las Intrepidas. Her dazzling moment is her Jennifer Lopez performance at the muxhe party in front of 10,000 people.


Mayte lives in la Septima one of the humblest areas of Juchitan, where life has changed little over the past 30 years. She has her studio at home, and as a talented seamstress, she is highly sought after in the run up to the muxhe party. In Septima we see her strutting her stuff in her neighbourhood – enjoying the attention she gets. 


Outrageously funny and outgoing there is not a dull moment with Mayte around.
