“My trip to Mexico gave me the opportunity to become culturally immersed in a totally new culture and experience what it was like to become a part of a new community.” – Adam, Mexico Explorer 2017
This exciting, fully funded, eight-week volunteering programme includes working with the co-operative project in the beach village of La Ventanilla in Oaxaca State. The eco-tourism co-operative started operating tours along the mangrove swamp and offering horseback riding tours to generate an extra income.
Volunteer activities might include cleaning and preparation of the eco-friendly tourist cabins, to assist in the community owned restaurant “El maíz azul” (“The Blue Corn”), helping in the rehabilitation of confiscated animals and the release of newly-hatched turtles into the ocean. The accommodation is very basic and simple.
