We are working on the safety first Mexico tour.

Transportation

Since Mexico is five times the size of Japan, the most efficient and economical way to travel between sightseeing spots is by car.Car accidents are a big concern. It is true that there is no way to prevent 5% of accidents because they are "accidents", but by paying attention to the following points, we can reduce the probability of being involved in an accident caused by negligence or by accident, and the impact on the body in the event of an accident as much as possible. We are doing our best.

(As of May 2022, the number of traffic accidents during the tour is zero.)

  • I will be driving myself as I have extensive driving experience in Mexico. (See driver bio below)
  • I personally drive the roads all over Mexico and regularly try to understand the road conditions and characteristics.
  • Get at least 7 hours of sleep before work. (Does not include the time before going to bed)
  • Do not drink alcohol within 10 hours before driving.If you will be with the customer the night before1 creditsand stop drinking 10 hours before.
  • In the unlikely event that you feel tired or sleepy while driving, take a rest in the nearest parking space.
  • Our vehicles are equipped with a total of 6 airbags.
  • Our vehicles are equipped with a function that sounds an alarm when the vehicle rolls due to drowsiness or fatigue.
  • Our vehicles undergo the 15000 km inspection recommended by the manufacturer without delay at an authorized dealer.
  • Only genuine parts sold by dealers are used.
  • Obey legal speed limits. (The speed is displayed in digital numbers so that customers can easily see it.)
  • Avoid dangerously driven vehicles and vehicles that appear to be poorly maintained to reduce the chance of an accident.
  • I always have an air compressor in my car to keep the tires at the correct air pressure.
  • During inspection at an authorized dealer, when it is pointed out that the tire tread has decreased, we replace it with a new tire.

Crime prevention

straight highway

One of the drawbacks of traveling to Mexico is the security issue.There is little damage in tourist areas, and most of the crimes are likely to occur while traveling.We are striving to improve the establishment of crime prevention by taking the following measures.

(As of May 2022, the number of crime victims during the tour is zero)

  • Unless there are special circumstances, I will not drive on highways late at night.We will organize a tour with a flexible itinerary.
  • Use toll highways whenever possible.
  • The route to be used is traveled by myself in advance, and only the route judged to be highly safe is used.
  • As much as possible, try to understand the crime situation in each area, and if there is a high-crime area, avoid it and create a route.
  • We are collecting information on security from local people.
  • If you have no choice but to use a detour route due to traffic jams, etc., choose a safe route even if it is far away.
  • At the preparation stage, we will explain security measures for your clothing and belongings.
  • Keep your distance from suspicious vehicles and pedestrians.

emergency

To become a licensed guide in Mexico, you must be trained and licensed in basic life support.The license is valid for 2 years and must be renewed before it expires.In addition, even before it expires, we strive to be able to calmly and appropriately respond to emergencies through self-study.

First life-saving measures in natural tours such as mountain climbing and hiking are different from those in cultural tours.Although it is not compulsory by law, in our mountaineering/hiking tour service, in addition to the guide (me), one rescue personnel is required (required) to communicate with the emergency services and handle minor injuries.・We have a system in place to assist with descents in the event of mild illness.

  • Actively update basic life support knowledge and skills on an ongoing basis.
  • When traveling to rural areas, we know the location of medical institutions on the route so that we can reach the nearest medical institution in the shortest possible time.
  • We will inform you of the points to note at each sightseeing spot.
  • If you do not have a mobile phone during your free time, we will lend you one of our mobile phones so that you can communicate with us.
  • Call a colleague guide if you need assistance.
  • In tourist areas such as mountainous areas where mobile phone signals do not reach, I carry a XNUMXW (maximum portable) VHF transceiver so that I can communicate with rescue personnel.
  • For mountaineering and hiking tours with 4 or more people, one sub-guide (with primary life-saving license) accompanies to provide smooth support in an emergency.
