Colombia – Ecuador
Rumichaca Border Crossing ( 18 December 2016-Sunday)
Total time 2 hours and 30 minutes (Colombia 30 min, Ecuador 2 hours)
Rumichaca border is 2 miles far away from Ipiales. Fill your tank at ipiales before heading to border because gas stations close to border on Ecuador side are not selling gas foreign vehicles.
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.
We will try to summarize the border crossing experiences that we have throughout our adventure going South. The information may change but hopefully help someone on the road or preparing a trip.
