You’ve got questions…we’ve got answers:
How safe will I be in Mexico?
We’ll be staying at Azusa Pacific University’s property where they have run camps for many, many years (APU’s Mexico Outreach has been partnering with a variety of ministry and government organizations in Baja California for over 40 years). They work hard to provide a safe environment including on site medical staff, clean/careful food preparation and making recommendations for wise choices when traveling outside of camp. They have an extremely strong track record for safety, many thousands of students and leaders have attended programs without major incident. The areas in which the ministry operates are NOT those parts of Mexico that are sometimes in the news as problem areas. I myself have participated in almost 50 trips with this ministry and have never felt in danger.
