Travel Tip Tuesday: Crossing the Border to Mexico

With Mexico just an hour away, I can’t help myself from itching to cross over. The call of tacos is too strong. Unfortunately for me, I can’t make the run for the border. My passport is being renewed in preparation for Cuba in March.

Even though I’m left only daydreaming about the trip, it doesn’t mean I can’t read up on what I need to know for when I can crossover.

The border may only be 67 miles away, it can take up to 2 hours to actually get through. Be prepared for how many rounds of 99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall you’ll need to sing in wait by checking border wait times.

Check your car insurance. Most policies only cover a certain mileage into another country. For Mexico, Sanborn’s Insurance is the popular choice.

Just like me, you’ll need your passport. Anything less and you better hope you know all the words to the Fresh Prince of Bel Air’s theme song.

I may just be winging it, but for those who are not take a look at the list the Before You Go from MexPro.

Have you crossed the border lately? What advice do you have? As always, be safe out there kiddos! And happy travels!
