We recommend that if possible everyone take along a portable copy of this video showing the way from a major landmark to the emergency gathering place at Gran Comision.
Every participant will be given written instructions for finding this location.

MAPS.ME

MAPS.ME is an app that allows users to download offline maps and bookmarks, and then use navigation to get to various sites from your "current location." Follow these instructions to download the app and maps to your smartphone, and we will email out the Ensenada ministry sites and communityresources as Spring Break draws near. Even if you do not have data in Mexico, the app will still work and provide navigation through your phone's GPS system!

 

RAVrav's

We camp at RAV (Rancho Agua Viva) and from there we use route sheets, audio recordings, and videos to guide you to your ministry site/s--hence, RAVrav's.

Download routes, audios or videos that you may find helpful. If you have an iPhone, video iPod or other handheld mp4 player, you can carry the mp4 video with you. If you don't have video and need access to an audio only file, please email riskasst@westmont.edu. We will do our best to create one for you, but please note that if you email us last minute, it is likely we will not receive your request in time.

Whether you take your entertainment device or not we suggest you watch the video a couple of times from the comfort of home. (Non-student participants should print out the route sheet to carry along. Student team leaders (and drivers for the Sports & Med/Dent teams since there are multiple cars in their caravans) will be provided with the PDF routes below to their sites.)

Remember, things change "on the ground" down there: new stoplights; construction detours, etc. The maps are provided AS-IS. They're known to contain imperfections, but we believe that overall they can be helpful to you. We're eager to get your feedback (questions, problems, corrections, kudos).

Click here to email your comments to the Risk Assistant. Although we'll make every effort to fix problems or reply to any feedback prior to departure, we regret that we may be unable to do so. Please forgive us if we've spelled your name wrong.
