Ah sunshine, beaches, beer, and Mexican food.  What more can you ask for?

Playa del Carmen is a city on the coast of Mexico ideally located south not too far from the international airport with easy access to Tulum, Cozumel, Coba.  Enjoy snorkeling, diving, or hanging out in a cenote and perhaps, you can fit some work into all the fun.

What You'll Do


A few days after you arrive, you'll enjoy a welcome dinner and get to know your Wanderist family at your own private catamaran! 

What better way to break the ice than hanging out in the middle of the ocean, eating, drinking, and snorkeling?!

With a buffet and bar on board and the open sea, there won't be too many awkward pauses.




We'll be in Mexico during one of the biggest celebrations of the year - The Day of the Dead.  Celebrated from October 30th - November 2nd, this holiday celebrates the lives of loved ones . 

Our group will kick off the celebration by visiting a small Mayan community to participate in an authentic cultural experience Hanal Pixan means "food of the souls" and is a ceremony honored those who have passed with beautiful decorations and an extravagant meal. 

Afterwards, expect to turn up for a few days...it's Halloween on steroids. Definitely bring a costume!

We'll have a calendar of events for our group to enjoy and make sure we get to experience local events as well.

Where You'll Work

In between the fun, when it's time to buckle down and work, head over to the Nest.
