Mexico is a beautiful country, and a great place to spend time on a volunteer program or internship. Mexico is a real meeting-place of cultures: a modern, industrialized and well-educated country that's full of history. American, Spanish and Indian influences all come together to make it a fascinating place that mixes developed and developing worlds. Mexico is a stimulating mixture of wealth and poverty, and offers amazing opportunities for volunteers to learn and travel within its expansive borders.

Our projects in Mexico are available for anyone interested in volunteering in the developing world, including those on a college summer break, gap year, career break or volunteer vacation.

The large city of Guadalajara is the home of Projects Abroad Mexico. Our volunteer office base is right next to the magnificent Expiatorio Cathedral in the center of the city. Care, Teaching, Medicine & Healthcare, Conservation & Environment, Sports, Journalism, International Development, Business, Veterinary Medicine & Animal Care, Performing Arts, and Spanish language courses are all available to volunteers.


Guadalajara is fondly known as the most Mexican of cities. Tequila, sombreros, mariachi music and rodeo riders all originated in Guadalajara.

There are plenty of activities here to fill your time off. Attending a soccer fiesta followed by a meal of tortas ahogadas - pork rolls drowned in chili sauce - is something that has to be experienced. Visit a small town with a group of volunteers and become the star of the local festival: in Mexico, anything's possible!

To get away from it all, find a good map and a bus schedule and head for the beaches, hills, jungles or mountains. In Mexico it is easy to get off the beaten track. You'll soon be walking up ancient pyramids, whale-watching, trekking or surfing the Mexican waves.


For medical placements, an intermediate level of Spanish is required.
