Projects Abroad Mexico volunteers and interns can explore Guadalajara Cathedral during their time off

Volunteer or Intern in Mexico

Support disadvantaged communities and wildlife while living like a local in a beautiful and culturally rich Latin American country.

We’re thrilled to announce that Americans can now join our projects in Mexico again! Are you ready to channel your energy into something meaningful by immersing yourself in another rich culture, but a little hesitant to venture too far from home? Why not pop down to the Mexican heartland and join us on a Conservation, Medical or Business project ? Our team is waiting to pick you up and show you what makes Jalisco one of the best hidden gems in North America. Please contact us today for the latest information.

Volunteer in Mexico with Projects Abroad and help serve communities in need through a variety of project options. You’ll contribute to ongoing work to support communities while experiencing life in a beautiful country first-hand.

We offer several different kinds of volunteer work in Mexico. You can support early childhood development at an under-resourced care center, protect endangered turtles on black sand beaches, gain valuable experience on a Medical Internship by working at a local hospital, and more. We even offer Spanish language add-on courses for an even more immersive experience.

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

Modern-day Mexico boasts a simulating blend of Mesoamerican cultures, Spanish traditions, and contemporary arts. You’ll get to explore both idyllic coastlines and cactus-strewn deserts in the evenings and on your weekends off.

Where we are based in Mexico

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


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 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.
