FAQ's and Safety


Each year over 39.3 million visitors travel to Mexico, which ranks it 6th in the world in total tourism. Since 1987, Youth With A Mission has hosted more than 100,000 participants in different parts of Mexico. None of our participants, groups, or staff have experienced any incidents of violent crime. We credit God’s mercy and our operating principles as being the key reasons for our longstanding safety record.

Our Operating Principles:

  1. Group-based, not individual-based: Everything we do is done as a group. We travel and work in groups. At no time are people sent alone to do anything in Mexico.
  2. Staff participation: Each group has one or more YWAM staff members with them at all times. We are a full-service missions group and provide general setup and supervision of all our teams and groups.
  3. Local Knowledge: YWAM and its visiting teams do not work independently of the communities in which we serve. Any areas which may be considered to be possibly unsafe are avoided.
  4. Hours of Operation: Our work takes place primarily in daylight hours. Normally all of our activities are completed with people back in their rooms by 10pm. We also employ night watchmen at the YWAM Mazatlan base after working hours.

We appreciate the trust that is extended to us every time a group joins us in serving those impoverished here in Mexico, and we work hard to make sure that our trips are as safe as possible. Please feel free to contact us if you have any additional questions and we will be happy to assist in any way that we can.
