More investigation on what you need is probably worth your time.
We entered on the Pacific side in 2010 and departed two months ago. I haven't heard of a Notarized crew list, I assume it is something being done on the Caribbean
side. We prepared crewlists on our boat computer or the Port Captain
will provide a blank form.
When we entered, you could purchase
your Temporary Import Permit
in country at the API Office in La Paz
, but you can also order it on line. It takes about two weeks and is mailed to you in the USA. TIPs are valid for ten years.
You need to have Mexican insurance coverage

. It is best to a Spanish langauge copy!
In addition to the above list, if you have a loan on the baot you need to have a certified letter from the lein holder allowing the boat to travel into Mexixo...
