Your Base

Where will I be living?

 Akumal is a stunning  town between Playa Del Carmen and Tulum. This  location is an optimal feeding, nesting and breeding habitat for marine turtles, it actually means 'Land  of turtles' in Mayan! 
Environmentally diverse it offers, beach, jungle, wetlands and reefs, so you are sure to have an awesome time exploring the area. Take a road trip to Tulum  or even Cancun on your days off as you'll only be a couple of hours away. 

During your first 12 weeks, whilst conducting marine research, you’ll be staying in shared accommodation. The facilities are basic and participants share base duties including cleaning and chores. On your 12 week work placement accommodation is of a higher standard, sharing with other participants. Your placement will be discussed with you further when you are in Mexico and this will be based along the Caribbean coast.

Who will be working on my project?

You will be working with up to 18 other international interns alongside field staff that assist the project. When on placement you will be working with local dive center staff.
