Become a World Explorer
Mexico is a country rich in both culture and beauty. Home to exotic wildlife, endless beaches, ancient ruins and an urban metropolis, Mexico has something for everyone. Unfortunately, most people only get to see the regions of Mexico popular with tourists, like the all-inclusive resorts, the Señor Frogs and the spring break parties. Haven’t you ever wondered what the real Mexico is like?
The mixture of strong native legends, artistic expressions and Spanish cultural elements make the Mexican culture unique. Being proud of their native heritage, Mexican people have preserved many of their ancestors’ traditions in their art, music and cuisine. As a World Explorer in Mexico, you will see the country as a local. Your safety is important to us, and we will do our best to make sure your travel experience is secure.
CHI works with its trusted partner agency in Cuernavaca, Mexico. Our partner agency offers exciting teaching programs at local kindergardens and elementary schools in Cuernavaca. In this program you will still live with a host family, but you will teach English to the children at your assigned school. Your work schedule will run Monday-Friday, and you will have weekends off to relax. You will make friends at the school and will also meet people through your host family. This is an ideal opportunity for someone studying to be a teacher that is looking to also become fluent in Spanish. Mexico is a perfect destination for those that want to improve their Spanish skills. Mexican Spanish is spoken clearly and is easy for beginners to understand.
We also offer Au Pair Abroad placements in Mexico for those looking to combine travel with childcare.
Traveling to Mexico is exciting, exotic, and affordable for those traveling on a budget. The program fee for Mexico starts at just $999. At just $11 per day, that’s even cheaper than staying home!
In Mexico, we offer exciting opportunities in addition to our home tutor option. These include:
WE calculated the price for two scenarios. The first scenario considers your choices above. The second scenario is the scenario that offers the best value. We also compared our prices with two other options. A hostel-stay with 3 meals per day and a hotel-stay with 3 meals per day. For the hotel-stay, we considered 1-2 star hotels because we learned from past World Explorers that most of them are traveling on a budget. However, a home-stay (staying with a host family) is substantially better than a 2-star hotel-stay when all amenities, comfort, and support are considered. Aside from that, you will be staying with people who care about you, who will be sharing their culture with you, and who will embrace you as part of their family. These, as part of your life-changing experience, are priceless!
You will be traveling abroad on a tourist visa; hence, in most countries, you can only stay up to 90 days. We understand you might want to stay longer and we designed the World Explorers program to meet your desire. Instead of staying over 90 days in a country, we allow you, the World Explorer, to participate on a second adventure on a different country. And that is not all. You can actually participate as many times as you would like (some exclusions apply). Please contact a World Explorers customer care specialist for more information.
