Volunteer in Mexico

Support local communities while experiencing life in a beautiful Latin American country

Volunteer in Mexico with Projects Abroad and help serve communities in need. You’ll contribute to ongoing work to support communities while experiencing life in a beautiful country.


We offer different kinds of volunteer work in Mexico. You can support early childhood development at an under-resourced care center, or protect endangered turtles on black sand beaches.


You can also gain valuable experience on a Medical internship by working at a local hospital.


Our projects are based in Guadalajara or Cuyutlan, depending on what project you choose. We have full-time staff in Mexico who are there to support you 24/7.


Modern-day Mexico has an interesting blend of Mesoamerican cultures, Spanish traditions, and contemporary arts. You’ll get to explore both idyllic coastlines and cactus-strewn deserts.

Where we are based in Mexico

Our volunteer opportunities in Mexico take place in Guadalajara. Our Conservation Project is based in Cuyutlan.

Guadalajara

Guadalajara has winding cobblestone streets, beautiful colonial architecture, and a buzzing urban area. The modernization of the city lets you experience the old and new, all within one city. So you’ll get a taste of traditional Mexican culture and the energy of a growing modern city environment.

Cuyutlan

Cuyutlan feels a world away from everywhere. It has black-sand beaches, gentle waves, and a relaxed attitude. This quiet beach town is the home of our Sea Turtle and Coastal Conservation Project.

AIRPORT PICKUP, FLIGHTS AND VISAS

When you arrive at your respective airport, a member of Projects Abroad staff will be there to meet you. You can find more detailed information on arrival airports, orientation, and visas on our Mexico Arrival Procedures page.
