Tropic was The Miami Herald's Sunday magazine, published as an insert in the Sunday edition from 1967 until 1998. Tropic won three Pulitzer Prizes and published many writers who went on to become well known. More notable writers include humour columnists Dave Barry, Gene Weingarten, Carl Hiaasen, and Madeleine Blais. Other writers include Paul Levine, Joel Achenbach, Bill Cosford, and Tom Shroder.[1][2]

The magazine created the Tropic Hunt, now known as the Herald Hunt.
