With the temperatures dropping by the day, you might be jonesing for some healthy, beachy travel—and an almost too-good-to-be-true opportunity could answer to your chilled-spine prayers: Cancun.com, a destination website for city, is looking for a CEO, and no experience is required.

All right, all right—so this CEO happens to stand for “Cancun Experience Officer,” (rather than the traditional C-suite “executive” designation), but it’s still a way to make your #bossbabe dreams a reality. Imagine generating social media content of your new tropical backyard, meeting locals and tourists alike at the coolest hot spots, and coordinating local charitable projects—and getting paid to do it.

“We find the right person to help us show the rest of the world everything Cancun has to offer, from the culture and community to its beautiful hotels and pristine beaches.” —Chad Meyerson, Cancun.com general manager

“We want to make sure we find the right person to help us show the rest of the world everything Cancun has to offer, from the culture and community to its beautiful hotels and pristine beaches,” Chad Meyerson, Cancun.com general manager, said in a press release.

The company is accepting applications for the badass brand ambassador role until December 17, and if you’re someone who’s social-media savvy and willing to spend six months in Cancun, documenting your experience the entire time, you might be in luck. Extra points if you’re willing to take on hard tasks, like scaling 3,000-year-old pyramids, swimming with a 40,000-pound whale shark, and sleeping in dreamy, luxe beds overlooking jaw-droppingly beautiful beaches…all while being paid $10,000 a month. Guessing your schedule is already cleared, right?

Between this gig and the professional avocado-taster position in Australia, future job postings have a lot of healthy-travel benefits to live up to.

Here’s exactly what time of day you should apply for your dream job. Also, this is how you can turn your passion into your day job.
