Cozumel Green Angels

Cozumel’s Angeles Verdes, or Green Angels Helping Motorists in Need

The Angeles Verdes, or Green Angels as they are known in English, have been hard at work this holiday season assisting motorists in need.  Their services, which are available free-of-charge to both tourists and locals alike, help rescue people experiencing a problem with their vehicles.  Fernando Valencia Yeh, who is in charge of the Cozumel division of the Angeles Verdes was recently quoted as saying that during this time of year, they often work from sunrise to sunset, helping a significant number of people, mostly on the windward side of the island.  The Cozumel corps currently operate 2 vehicles, that primarily cover the island’s perimeter roads.   The most common problem they encounter is flat or punctured tires.  Members of the Angeles Verdes have “basic knowledge” and can provide both gasoline or air.  Their services are covered under the budget of the Federal Secretary of Tourism, as well as additional support from municipal authorities.

With a degree in Journalism from a fancy private college she convinced her parents to pay for, Laura writes, edits, and creates the weekly Cozumel 4 You news, promotional articles about the island, and her very own blog, which she finds hilarious. Her long suffering husband, the Fabster, has long since resigned himself to having zero private life, as he’s been involved in her various schemes and plots since his arrival. Proud parents to a variety of rescue dogs and cats, Laura continues to be the bane of her traditional Mexican mother-in-law’s existence, as she muses her way through life in the Mexican Caribbean.
