I'll be traveling around Mexico for the next 5 months and hoping to find a work exchange at different hostels or hotels. Any suggestions on any hostels that hire backpackers in Mexico?
Hi LabackpackerChick here is a couple of sites for you have a look at http://www.wwoofmexico.org/ WWOOF Mexico is a network linking travellers like you with organic farms in Mexico or for hotel work http://www.hosteljobs.net/forums/work-exchange-in-mexico-practice-spanish-and-go-to-the-beach-1001.html.
Might also be worth looking into visa requirements at http://www.sre.gob.mx/en/. about 7 years ago
