29 Jun TEFL in Mexico
If you are looking for a place that is different from your everyday life, Mexico is the place for you! Mexico has everything: historical sites, museums, beaches, countryside, and big cities. Here are some of the benefits of TEFL in Mexico.
Mexico is a great place for English teachers. It is very easy to get a job in Mexico due to the rising need for English teachers. Mexico also makes it incredibly easy to work with a tourist or work visa!
In Mexico, you do not need a four-year degree to be qualified to teach. All you need is a TEFL certificate! It is also very common for English teachers to work on a tourist visa, and then get a work visa after accepting a position. There is year-round hiring, so planning your stay in Mexico will be a breeze. Mexican schools usually hire in person, so doing TEFL in Mexico will be a good way to get your foot in the door.
The largest cities are Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey. The country is divided into 32 states among which you can move freely. And you need to know that Mexico is not only the Caribbean. Cosmopolitan cities, magical towns, colonial, ecotourism and adventure await you in the country.
The opportunity to travel around Mexico, to the US and other islands is a bonus! Mexico offers a wide range of places you can visit, so you will never be bored. For all the foodies out there; Mexico City offers a wide variety of local and international foods that are delicious.
Guadalajara offers many museums for all the history buffs. It is the second-largest city in the country and is ranked as the eighth-best city to visit in Mexico and South America. Known as the land of tequila and mariachi, it is rich in history and traditions.
A must-see when in Mexico is the ancient Mayan architecture in the jungles of Chiapas. Because of its location to the southeast of the country, Chiapas brings together seven different ecosystems. Get to explore its jungles, forests, rivers, waterfalls… and marvel at the natural beauties of this region.
For the more adventurous Cozumel is a great destination for scuba diving. The island is totally dedicated to the sport and you will get to discover a 45km long reef, beautiful rock formations and caves. The fauna is also very rich and varied. You can dive with barracudas, turtles, morays, eagle’s rays, and much other Caribbean fish. In addition, Cozumel is known for whale shark diving.
Travelling outside of Mexico is also very easy and affordable. Mexico is close to the Caribbean Islands and you can always pop over to the US for a weekend. The airport network is wide and has 32 international airports. Keep in mind that low-cost companies are the best option to move within the national territory.
Living in Mexico
Mexico is the perfect fit if you are looking for a warmer climate, friendly people, and good food.
Is there a better way to enjoy good weather than going to the beach? Well, Mexico’s beaches are among the best in the world! Cancun and Acapulco are the most famous. However, along the Pacific coast and the Caribbean coast, you will find many other beautiful beaches, less touristic as Bagdad, Piedra de Tlacoyunque or Caleta Tankah.
People are supportive and will always offer you sincerely what they can! The lifestyle is calm, so do not take it seriously if you hear Al ratito – in a while or Ahorita -right now because these phrases can mean right now, in an hour, next week or maybe never.
Mexico will allow you to learn about a culture that is thousands of years old. You can see the mix of cultures adapted by Mexicans during festivals such as Día de los Muertos, Día de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe, Las Posadas, and Cinco de Mayo.
The food in Mexico is another reason to relocate! The gastronomic variety is one of the largest in the world and is prepared with artisanal care. Known throughout the country as Vitamin T: tacos, tamales and toast are part of daily life. You will be able to find world-class seafood on the coasts and pair it with a michelada (a beer bloody Mary). You will never want to return to your local Mexican restaurant after you’ve tasted the real thing!
