You also need to get temporary importation permits for both the car and coach if you travel outside of Baja or the Hassle Free zone in Sonoita. Both of these things can be done at most ports of entry where you get your tourist visa.[/QUOTE
Good advice...if you are traveling on the mainland create a file with several copies of your drivers licenses, registration, passport as you will need these for the importation & tourist visa. Small point, but this is not done at " point of entry" as the first 50 miles is a free zone. At about mile 50 you will encounter your first road block where all of this stuff will take place.
Don't forget to "un" import on your way home...they do keep track...don't ask how we know!
Also...get used to military check point/road blocks and soldiers entering your rig on the drive down. These are harmless inconveniences, but keep your eye on the ball while they are in your RV! We used to buy a case of Coke as a free soda used to "grease" the experience & smooth the stop....actually these road blocks were often more entertaining and often less threatening than Agriculture or INS stops north of border!
