Any traveler with a valid passport may stay in Tijuana and it’s surroundings for up to one week without paying a Visa Fee, but you must register with the Mexico immigration authorities just after crossing from San Diego to have the one-day visa. If you need to stay longer, you will be required to pay a $332.00 MXN (Mexican Pesos), approximately $USD. You can do this online.
For non-mexican citizens entering Mexico it is mandatory to have a current valid passport. Reentering to U.S., regardless of nationality border officer will ask for a valid passport or SENTRI/Global Entry card when returning to the U.S. from Mexico, read more about it here.
We recommend bringing the following valid forms of identification for convenience: Driver License and birth certificate, in case you don’t have a passport. If you are a US citizen you have the right to ask for a lookup in the CBP computer system with any valid ID when reenter US.
We cover all expenses related to the tour, but having a little extra money is recommend, bring with you at least $35 bucks this is around $642 pesos, one bill of $20, one bill of $10 and one bill of $5. Don’t bring more if you are not staying more then one day. With this amount you will do fine in case of an emergency.

To provide our guest the most realistic experience, we will be using old smuggling routes, because when in Rome, right? Or we could just be bland and use the regular pedestrian border crossing lanes. Question is… “do you feel lucky? Well, do you?”
P.S. we won’t be using smuggling routes, just good old San Ysidro International border crossing.
We will do it like mexicans cross to US, running from the gringos, so you can feel the essence of latinos.
OF COURSE NOT!, but we will cross in and out via the pedestrian lanes. this will make it easier and faster.
Crossing the border to Mexico is as easy as walking through a set of revolving doors. But returning to U.S. is way different, it might be 1 min to 2 hours talking about that Border crossing time is not something that we can control but of course we know estimated information that is given by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, you can see it here.
