Round the clock support for tourists in Cabo

Date Published:

Tourists will be able to access help and support 24/7, 365 days a year in new CAPTA offices. And extra security to be continued in Cabo for now ...

Last week we reported on the new CAPTA building that is just about to open its doors in Cabo.

Located at the Marina, the Centre of Attention and Protection for Tourists will be a one-stop shop to provide tourists with all sorts of  help and information should they get into any kind of difficulty while they are here in Cabo.

Support will be available 24/7, 365 days a year. With permanent guards, and 24-hour telephone service. All designed to make tourists feel as safe and secure as possible.

A whole range of services will be conveniently located in the one building. Services confirmed so far will include: Attorney General's Office of Justice-PGJE, Municipal Tourist Police,

Profeco, Federal Police, Gendarmerie, Port Captaincy, Federal Police, Civil Protection.

Final arrangements are also being made with the Ángeles Verdes (Green Angels)  – who provide car breakdown services. And the office for Fiscal Execution – which  deals with any complaints of bad service or abuse from service providers.

Also in regard to security...

The general secretary of the City of Los Cabos, yesterday confirmed that violent incidents  have successfully been reduced in March and April. But not completely eradicated. He indicated that  the three levels of government – federal, national and state, will continue to work together to combat violence and promote security in the Los Cabos Region.

So right now you can expect to see a continued deployment of security personnel  - composed of Federal Forces, Gendarmerie, Federal Police, State Police,  Municipal Police and Armed Forces. Don’t be alarmed. They are here to keep everyone safe. And 99.99% of all incident have been well away from tourist areas.
