Do You Dream Of Running Away From Home, Escaping The Harsh Winters?

And Living On A Pristine White Sandy Beach On A Tropical Island In Paradise?

Experience a week living barefoot on the beach like an islander, getting the insider scoop into how to earn dollars, spend pesos, and live in paradise like royalty – on any budget.  Banish the fear of the unknown, and embrace a brilliant future life you've always dreamed of.

7 Days That Will Change Your Life

You will explore the off-the-beaten-path treasures of this tiny sun-kissed island off the coast of Cancun, taste fresh caught seafood, slurp icy margaritas while digging your toes into powder white sand,  and swim and sun on one of the 9 best beaches of the world – according to Conde Nast.

A Unique Learning Vacation for a Once-in-a-lifetime Experience

While this week-long vacation is a deliciously-relaxing and enjoyable retreat, it is so much more. The purpose is to give you a profound immersion into life in paradise, to see if running away from home to live to paradise on this tiny island in the tropics is right for you. Each day is filled with exploration of unique locations, delicious fresh-cooked meals, afternoons spent at exquisite beaches and amazing beach clubs, and evenings of live music and laid back living. 

 But it's also structured to present valuable learning in the morning sessions while looking out onto a beautiful beach, along with opportunities to meet doctors, lawyers, realtors, and more, and visit typical homes of other expats to get a bird's eye view into life in paradise.  You will learn about many local non-profit organizations that are the backbone of the island, and meet other expats who have successfully moved to paradise to build a joy-filled life on a shoestring budget. Plus you will meet working professionals who hold down jobs and build businesses as digital nomads, so they can live and work in paradise for the best of all worlds.
