Is Internet access available at Los Domos?
There is an Internet cafe at the Morelia airport and the Morelia bus station. You can send a message when you first arrive. That will be your best opportunity to communicate. There is also an Internet cafe in Acuitzio.
There is Internet access at Los Domos on occasion. While frequent connection with loved ones back home is not a guarantee, it’s a great opportunity to unplug and enjoy the great outdoors.
Will we be interacting with nationals?
Hopefully at least part of the time. However, it depends on the type of projects you will be doing. Groups that come down for a long enough period often have the opportunity to visit Patzcuaro or Morelia, and sight-see while staying with a local family over night.
What type of clothing should I bring?
For a two week stay:
3-4 work pants and 1 pair of pants for Sunday and travel
5-6 work shirts and 1 for Sunday and travel
7-10 pairs of socks and underwear (depends on number of days you stay and if you want to wash them out by hand or not)
work boots and shoes for travel
flashlight with extra batteries
Bible, pen and pad
Bathing suit during summer months (shorts are appropriate for both genders)
Towel/hand towel (Towels may be bought in Mexico to avoid carrying bulky items which would decrease limited luggage space.)
What health precautions should I take/be aware of?
A Hepatitis A shot and health Insurance are required. See trip stipulations.

There are showers at Los Domos, but water is a precious commodity and is pumped through a complex system for use in bathrooms and the kitchen. Bring your swimsuit and you are welcome to take a dip in the lake.
