If you are going to be working on construction you must bring your own safety gear such as work boots, gloves and safety hat. We can supply most tools but you may bring your own if you wish. Keep in mind that you will need to pass through Mexican customs.

Please bring what items you need that will support what activity you will be doing. e.g. beads and tools for a jewellery workshop, your favourite ESL textbook, a soft ball and bat, soccer balls.

If you have extra room in your suitcase we always need:

  • over the counter medications
  • vitamins, especially for children and pregnant mothers
  • toothbrushes and toothpaste
  • school supplies
  • shoes, especially athletic shoes, for all ages and closed toe and heel shoes for school age children
  • books in Spanish for the library
