December Immersion Trip
Mexico City, Mexico
Frequently Asked Questions
Is Mexico City Safe?
Like in any big city, we like to be cautious, stick to the areas we know, and always stay together. These travel philosophies have made it such that Andy McCullough, the Executive Director of Reintegra, has led or sent multiple teams to Mexico City over the past 13 years without incident.
How do you get around the city?
For groups of 4 or less, Uber is a safe and reliable form of travel. For larger groups, a private driver is hired. We travel in a 15 passenger van. The owner of the van company has provided transportation for many Hollywood film companies who have filmed in Mexico.
Will you leave Mexico City at any point during the trip?
No. All of our activities take place within the city proper. We have done excursions in the past with survivors to National Parks or to Teotihuacan but those are still within the metropolitan area of Mexico City. If you personally want to extend your time to visit other parts of Mexico City after the project, you may but all expenses and arrangements would be on your own.
What is the food like in Mexico City?
You could find almost any cuisine in Mexico City, but the best food is the local food! Tacos are abundant and delicious everywhere you go!
Where do you stay?
We have found that the best experience is renting a house in an area of town called La Condesa. It is a quiet part of town with tree lined streets and great places to eat.
Am I expected to remain part of the group or can I venture off on my own?
For the sake of unity and safety, we ask that no one venture off on their own. The area where we stay is safe but its still advised to travel in a small group or a pair even if going for a morning run. If you do have other friends and family that you want to visit while you are in Mexico City, please make sure those plans are first approved by Andy so that it does not interfere with our group plans.
