Thirty is the new 60, if the latest trend in digital culture is to believed. The Modern Elder Academy, in El Pescadero, Mexico, offers one-week programs to help workers in the tech industry come to terms with getting older – and far from just attracting the 45+ crowd, this resort experience is increasingly catering to those in their 30s.
The getaway is structured like a training program and prospective guests must apply and be accepted before paying their $5,000 “tuition” fee, which includes three meals a day, all from locally sourced ingredients. The regimen includes workshops on coping with getting older and salt-air yoga. The program was inspired by founder Chip Conley’s own experiences at AirBnB.
