Still waiting to win the lottery so you can finally quit your day job? This might come pretty close. Cancun, the gorgeous holiday destination located on the Mexican coast, is searching for a Cancun Experience Officer—also called a “CEO,” according to the city’s website.

The lucky candidate who lands the all-expenses-paid job will live in Cancun from March to August 2018. And the best part? You get paid $10,000 per month just to live there. Check out even more cool jobs that don’t require a college degree.

While a bit of extra cash is certainly appealing, you won’t be totally off the hook for six months. The gig involves creating videos, social media posts, and blog posts for that capture the best experiences at the popular resort town. Of course, that will probably require a fair amount of field trips to some of the most stunning places in Mexico. Climbing ancient Mayan ruins or snorkeling with whale sharks and dolphins could be on the itinerary. You might even have to spend a day lounging on spotless, white beaches with a cocktail in hand. Rough life, we know.

To apply, you’ll need to submit an application, along with a one-minute video that showcases your personality and skills. But hurry, you don’t have much time; applications are due December 17.

A panel of representatives will select the top 100 candidates in December and then narrow their list down to the top 50 by January 4. From there, five finalists will be invited to Cancun to participate in the final selection process.

Good luck!
