FLYING

Image

If you’re flying in for this one (thanks!), you'll probably have the easiest time at San Diego International. San Diego airport is about 20 minutes from the Mexico border, and small enough to get in and out of quickly.

If you can find the right flight, however, Tijuana International could work too. Tijuana's airport won't save you too much time on the commute, but it will save you the hassle of crossing the U.S. border on the way back… with that said, you may lose time in customs given the international flight.

No matter where you land, you'll still need to get to Valle de Guadalupe. Both airports have centrally located car rental companies, and we will also be coordinating shuttles. The shuttle details are still being determined, but please note your interest in utilizing this option when you RSVP and we will follow up with you soon. If a shuttle service isn’t for you, we'd recommend renting a car or relying on Uber. More details on both are below.

DRIVING

Image

Driving to Valle is pretty easy, and definitely beautiful. The roads are in good condition and – aside  from the border crossing – the drive is pretty painless. GPS is very reliable if you'll have a mobile connection.

ENTERING MEXICO


Entering Mexico is about as easy as it gets. In most cases you'll drive through without any stops, though occasionally there is a random check.

There are three borders: San Ysidro, Otay Mesa and Tecate. If you're looking to get to your hotel as quickly as possible, we recommend letting your GPS decide. Otherwise, if you'd like to drive along the coast, cross via San Ysidro. If you prefer a drive through the mountains and desert, cross via Otay Mesa or Tecate.

Make sure to have some pesos (or small U.S. bills) for the drive. Both routes require tolls.

ENTERING THE US


Entering the U.S. from Mexico isn't as simple as leaving the U.S. It's not a complicated process, but it can require some patience as the border lines can get pretty long (anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours), especially on a Sunday, so download a good podcast and have some pesos handy to buy snacks.

There are 3 border crossings into the U.S. - San Ysidro, Otay Mesa and Tecate. Use a combination of your GPS and the CBP's border wait times to determine where to cross and which route to take.

Global Entry/SENTRI:
If you have global entry and a SENTRI registered vehicle, you will save a bunch of time. Wait times when driving a SENTRI registered vehicle are no more than 10-15 minutes. There are dedicated SENTRI lanes, so make sure you follow the directions in for San Ysidro and Otay Mesa. It’s important to note that not only must your vehicle have SENTRI, all occupants in the car must be registered with Global Entry and have their card handy.

Signing up for Global Entry is pretty easy if you register far enough in advance. To note, you cannot add SENTRI status to a rental car.

No matter which border crossing you take, make sure you bring your passport.

WALKING

If you like the idea of a five minute border crossing on your way home from Mexico to the U.S., walking is the way to go. This may sound scary, but we assure you it's not. Crossing on foot is simple and safe.

If you're flying in to San Diego, we'd recommend taking an Uber/Lyft to the border. The cross on foot and take another (cheaper) Uber from the border to Valle de Guadalupe. If you're driving down from LA, there is a great parking lot at the border where you can leave your car for the weekend.

If enough people are interested in crossing on foot, we can easily arrange a passenger van to shuttle you down to the Valle. Just let us know in your RSVP and we'll coordinate from there.

IN THE VALLE

Image

Once in Valle de Guadalupe, your need for transportation will largely depend on what you want to do. Uber is pretty active during the day and early evening. There are also numerous car hire services, as well as drivers-for-hire (that will drive your car) if you decide you want to go wine tasting, or partake in other inebriating activities.

We will be providing shuttle services home from the venue on the day of the wedding, so feel free to Uber to the ceremony. Uber goes quiet later into the night, so best not to plan around that.
