Die Workcamps in Mexiko werden von unseren langjährigen mexikanischen Partnerorganisationen VIMEX und Vive Mexico organisiert. Im Bundesstaat Chiapas werden Workcamps von der 10 Jahre alten  Organisation Nataté organisiert.

VIMEX und Vive Mexico bieten Freiwilligen die Möglichkeit eines Spanischkurses direkt vor der Teilnahme an einem ihrer Workcamps.



Für die Camps in Lateinamerika ist eine gehörige Portion Flexibilität erforderlich. Offenheit gegenüber fremden Kulturen sowie die Fähigkeit sich Rhythmus und Lebensstil anpassen zu können gehören ebenfalls dazu. Nicht immer wird vor Ort alles so laufen wie es vorher auf dem Papier stand – aber auch das ist Teil einer interkulturellen Erfahrung. Als zusätzliche Teilnahmebedingung für Camps in Mexiko bitten wir folgendes zu beachten: Einige Brocken Spanisch sind Voraussetzung, Erfahrungen mit Lateinamerika oder Workcamps sind von Vorteil.
Für die mexikanischen Workcamps entstehen oft zusätzliche Kosten vor Ort (extra-fees), die sowohl für Unterkunft und Verpflegung verwendet werden als auch eine Unterstützung für das lokale Projekt sind.

Für Mexiko benötigt ihr kein Visum bei einem Aufenthalt unter 180 Tagen. Notwendig ist ein mindestens 6 Monate über den Aufenthalt hinaus gültiger Reisepass und ein Rückreiseticket.
