This program lets you live like a local in Mexico with a community of remote professionals eager to understand the world, step out of their comfort zone, and embark on one of the most memorable months of their life. Named after Chiapas, home to magnificent Mayan ruins and one of the largest producers of cacao in all of Mexico, you'll begin on your own spectacular journey through one of the most vibrant and energetic countries in the world.
Known as the “cultural hub of Mexico”, the capital city is an impressive metropolis full of adventures and contrasts. Chilangos (locals) are extremely friendly, local history is abundant, food is intertwined with a cultural renaissance, and the city is home to the oldest forest in the Americas.You’ll wander south through the colonial streets of Coyoacan and San Angel where Frida Kahlo used to roam, or out of the city to explore nearby towns, pyramids, lakes and nature reserves. You’ll be staying in Condesa and Roma, a pedestrian-friendly area filled with local cafes, pop up markets, trendy bars and restaurants, art galleries, and lush green parks just right outside your door.
You will be staying in comfortable private bedrooms within 2-5 bedroom apartments or houses within walking distance from the workspace. You’ll love the great location and trendy atmosphere all around you. There may be options to upgrade to a private apartment after booking.
