The Angeles Verdes (Green Angels) is
an organization belonging to the Federal Secretary of
Tourism. They drive radio-equipped vehicles and their
main function is to help tourists who experience car problems
along any of their patrolled highways. They also have
a communication network with different government offices
and can offer basic tourist information about the State
and the rest of the country.
The Green Angels provide medical first
aid, mechanical services, including basic mechanical supplies.
You won't be charged for their services, but you will
be chanrged for parts, gas, and oil. They patrol the highway
to San Felipe daily, from dawn until sunset. If you are
unable to call them, pull off the road and lift up the
hood of your car. Chances are good they'll find you.
If you have an emergency while
driving between Mexicali and San Felipe, call the Ministry
of Tourism's hotline (078) and ask
them to contact the closest Green Angel. Or just wait.
One will be by eventually.
