Our Story

Mexshield Logo

MEXSHIELD is the brainchild of Dan Cannon and Omar Ledesma. Dan is a succesful San Diego businesman who lived in Mexico for over 7 years and Omar a Mexican insurance broker living in the United States.

Both friends having lived, traveled, and conducted business on both sides of the border for decades, they understood first-hand the challenges that foreigners face while traveling in Mexico. After hearing too many discouraging tales from friends, family and coworkers, who had either had problems themselves, or had heard enough accounts of such problems that they were too afraid to travel to Mexico, Omar and Dan founddecided to find a way to allow people to enjoy the beauty, regional cuisines, and cultural riches of Mexico without worry: MEXSHIELD. With over 100 cumulative years of Mexican travel experience, MEXSHIELD is the first personalized, digital assistance network connecting travelers, DMC, travel agents, travel platforms and hotels with local hands-on assistance, was born, offering the one thing money can't buy: peace of mind.

I've had the pleasure of knowing Omar Ledesma and his brother Mario for a very long time. Through out the years he's insured my families vehicles, home and most recently we worked closely with MEXSHIELD to insure a wine festival in Baja México I'm a part of. It's really comforting to work with someone you can trust 100% in this field.

Even though I'm a Mexican descendant and speak Spanish, I preferred to enjoy Mexico, knowing that if something happens, I can get help right by my side. I enjoy Mexico with a peace of mind feeling safer and I'm so glad I took MEXSHIELD along with me. Thank you MEXSHIELD.
