From the beautiful white sands of the coastal beaches to the lush green mountains, Mexico has something for all ESL teachers. Visit the ancient ruins of the Maya and Aztec civilizations or enjoy native art, dance, and culture. Immerse yourself in the sounds of the famous Mariachi and Marimba music as you saunter through street fairs and plazas, and take in the ritualistic dance between a bull and a matador in an authentic bullfight. Teaching in Mexico opens opportunities to see ancient cultures, beautiful scenery, and white sandy beaches.
