Central America Border Crossings

USA – Mexico

Tecate Border (6 September 2016)

Total time 1 hour

We picked Tecate crossing instead of Tijuana due to its less volume compare to Tijuana. We were glad to make this decision. It was much faster and easier. The border personal helped a lot.

Special thanks Gadi our friend from Israel that passing border at the same time. He speaks Spanish fluently and translations made easier for us.
