Cancun Experience Officer Search Campaign Winter 2017 (

Vacation is important for mental health, but costly — too often leaving travelers with credit card debt that lingers long after they’re back at their desks. Quitting your day job to blog or Instagram your way around the world isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, either. But a recent job posting from a travel agency affiliated with the City of Cancun in Mexico may offer the best of both worlds.

No, this is not a drill: is seeking a “Cancun experience officer” to travel around the tourist destination and document their adventures on social media. The duties listed on the press release include a number of onerous tasks, ranging from “sleeping in luxurious beds” to “mingling with locals and tourists at your VIP table in the hottest clubs.”

The best part? It pays — and not too shabbily. According to the press release, Cancun’s CEO will receive $10,000 a month for the six-month contract, in addition to having all room and activity expenses covered by You may be responsible for some of your own meals, unless you’re documenting your adventures at one of Cancun’s all-inclusive resorts, naturally.

A more practical job description on the company’s website clarifies that the role involves creating video and social media content about Cancun that’s geared toward an American audience. So get your Instagramming and YouTubing skills ready.

You’ll need to be at least 18 and have a valid passport, obviously — but you don’t need to speak Spanish. Anyone can apply on the website by answering a few questions, submitting their social media profiles and making a short one-minute video. Three rounds of finalists will be selected before the ultimate winner is named Jan. 1, 2018.
