Traveling to San Felipe

Driving to San Felipe - You need to get to Calexico, California, which is on the border just south of El Centro, California. There are two border crossing at Calexico. The western crossing is in the heart of Calexico and Mexicali and the eastern crossing is just outside of both towns.

Mexican auto insurance is a must. Mexico does not recognize U.S. auto insurance policies. Proof of automobile ownership is required. Insurance is easy and affordable to purchase whether on a daily or annual basis. Insurance rates vary and depend on length of stay, type and value of vehicle. You can purchase your insurance policy well in advance of your trip to Mexico - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. By purchasing your Mexico auto insurance online, you will save money and time, and you will never have to wait in line at the border again!

Accidents must be reported to your Mexican insurance carrier BEFORE returning to the United States.

From Yuma: Take Highway 8 West and exit at Highway 98. Go West on Highway 98 for about 16 miles. At the traffic light, turn left for the border crossing. Continue up and over the clover leaf and to the border crossing (this is clearly marked).

Once through the new border crossing you will come to a "T" crossing.

Continue South on MORIN through 7 traffic lights, passing the Sony plant on the right. Turn left onto Highway 5 going South (you will see a Costco one block on the left after turning).

Crossing at Tijuana: Although there is a crossing at Tijuana and San Diego, and the drive is beautiful, the trip will take more time, there are toll roads, and the road conditions from Ensenada to San Felipe are very poor at this time.
