FWIW Latitude 38 usually has up to date info on activity along the Pacific Coast of Mexico. www.latitude38.com even though is a rag-boat centered site they always seem to have interesting articles and updates, it may be worth a look.

Ensanada

[QUOTE=Opu;448182]I agree about TJ and Rosarita. The nice thing about the drive down and back is that you skirt around both cities when you are on the toll road and when you are going between the toll road and the border crossing.

If you are going by sea there doesn't seem to be much of a problem (I did that voyage 30+ times). Do get your Temporary Import Permit (available online) and follow the directions carefully when you apply. Also, you need a customs permit to return to the US if your boat is over 30'. Don't forget your passport (by land or sea).


We spent six months in Ensenada back in 2005 / 2006 and drove back and forth from SD twice per month to check on the boat. Agree the tool roads make it easier and a little safer. I have heard from a few boat owners over the past year who have made the trip via car without any issues.

Does the Temporary Import Permit eliminate the need to run downtown Ensenada and file papers to enter the country by boat or is that still a requirement even for a weekend visit? Thank you

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.
