If you would rather be lounging on the beach, sipping cocktails, playing golf, and swimming with whale sharks than sitting in an office, you’re in luck: You can get paid to live in Cancún, Mexico, for six months.

Cancun.com is hiring a new CEO — a “Cancun Experience Officer” — to spend half a year discovering the region and sharing the experience with the world through blog posts, videos, and social media.

The chosen candidate will be paid $10,000 a month, get VIP access to clubs and activities, and have zero living expenses: The CEO will live in the area’s top hotels and resorts free of charge.

According to Chad Meyerson, Cancun.com’s general manager, the new CEO will be “the face and personality of Cancun.”

The ideal applicant has a fun and personable presence, is social media savvy, and can produce high-quality work. But no formal experience is required.

To apply for this dream job, travelers must create a one-minute video describing why they should be Cancun.com’s CEO and apply before December 17. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age, have a valid passport, and be available to live in Cancún from March through August 2018, without interruption.

There's bound to be some tough competition, and the contest to become the CEO will take a while: The top 100 candidates will be notified in December and assigned a new task. The pool will be shrunk down to 50 on January 4, and to the final five on January 17.

Those lucky five applicants will fly to Cancun for the final phase of the selection process, and the Cancún Experience Officer will be announced on January 31.
