All our entry was handled at the port. The tourist permit was handled in the immigration office inside the CIS (Centro Integral de Servicios) building in the port area. The TIP can be handled by local customs or even obtained online in advance.
Here is a good link for information. Baja Naval
Note that Baja Naval will handle the TIP for you for $50 and takes less than an hour.
We found all documentation easy at all Mexican ports when using the local dockmaster or agent.
