Provide lessons and tutoring
Depending on your experience, skill set, and knowledge, you can earn quite a lot of money by offering online courses in an area of expertise. You can apply at local schools or colleges for giving English or other language lessons to the locals who are willing to learn from a native speaker. If you play a musical instrument, dance, do yoga or any other art or sport, run some ads in the local classified ads offering lessons. You can also become an instructor in surfing, skiing, swimming or whatever sport you are good at. Chances are that if you are at an exotic location your offer will be unique and so it is very likely to find pupils among the local residents pretty soon!
You can also apply for becoming an Au Pair for a local family or household. This usually comes with additional perks such as a free room, free meals, and others.
