Volunteer Mexico

  :: Volunteer Mexico

Mexico is a country which has recently undergone a period of rapid economic growth. However, its development is under threat with arid lands expanding under the weight of desertification and fertile plains receding under the strain of irrigation.

If you want to reverse effects of global warming, you can help in a small way by developing our conservation projects in the Chihuahua Desert. Mining and irrigation have left this wetland vastly depleted. You can help preserve this nature reserve by securing dams and replanting local plant speicies.

Alternatively, you could try your hand at conserving local flamingo populations. We have opportunities protecting the nests, feeding sites and making sure fresh water is available for the birds. Other volunteer projects include directing IT classes for Mexican children, teaching English and working at turtle hatcheries.

Whether it’s to admire the magnificent colonial architecture, take shade under the laurels, or simply watch the comings and goings of downtown Mérida, the Plaza Mayor is a must.

Flanking the square on one side is the great 16th century cathedral, the site of a former Mayan temple and on each of the other sides you have a contemporary arts museum, the Palacio de Gobierno and the Palacio Municipal. And across town, everywhere you see the name Montejo - Paseo de Montejo, Casa de Montejo, even Panificadora Montejo - you’ll be reminded of the man himself, Francisco de Montejo the Younger, who founded the first Spanish colony here in 1542.

Today, however, Mérida has its very own personality and it’s all too easy to sit back and enjoy its many restaurants, marimba groups, and local artisans at work…just don’t forget that this is also the perfect base to explore the bird sanctuary at Celestún, the Puuc Mayan route, and of course the ancient Mayan ruins at Chichén Itzá and Uxmal.

El Playon

Located on Mexico's pacific coast is the beautiful resort of El Playon. Crystal clear waters, white sandy beaches and long rolling surf make this El Playon a dream destination. Famous as the home of tequila and mariachi - Mexico’s musical tradition, El Playon is a best kept secret amongst Mexicans - only recently discovered by European holiday-makers.

Monterrey

"The City of the Mountains" is the location of Mexico's business centre. A lively and industrious city, volunteers seeking the hustle and bustle of museums, art galleries, and fine restaurants always remark how they had difficulty cramming in all the city's extensive cultural exertions. However, If you easily tire of a hectic pace, volunteers can always retire to the cool climes of the breathtaking Madre Oriental mountains.

Cactus @ i-to-i

Mexico is gaining a firm place on the tourist map thanks to its ever-increasing popularity as a travel destination. However, beyond the developing cities, there are still many underprivileged communities in need of volunteer support, and volunteer English teachers are highly sought after. Tourism and climate change have also had a great impact on the Mexican landscape and volunteers are continually needed to help places such as rainforest reserves and the wetlands of Chihuahua.
