Where we are based in Mexico

Our volunteer opportunities in Mexico takes place in Guadalajara and Ciudad Guzman. Our Conservation Project is based in Cuyutlan.

Guadalajara

Guadalajara has winding cobblestone streets, gorgeous colonial architecture, and a serene urban area. While many of the images characterised as ‘Mexican’ have their roots here (like mariachi music), the modernisation of the city allows you to experience old and new, all within one city.  

Ciudad Guzman

Ciudad Guzman, which is just 90 minutes away from Guadalajara, allows you to experience life in a smaller, more traditional town. Under the shadow of the great Colima volcano, the town has fantastic food and beautiful panoramic views of the surrounding area.

Cuyutlan

With its black-sand beaches, gentle waves, and laid-back attitude, Cuyutlan feels a world away from everywhere. This quiet beach town serves as 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.
