what you will need to check into mexico...
25 ish usdollars for your visa
from a company that has "feet" in mexico--mariners insurance
group and some others do , and are inexpensive....
50-60 usd forthe temp import permit
if you fish
, a fishing license
for mexico is 48 usd for one year. can be gotten in ensenada at the same place you check into the country. all is in same building, except insurance. they will tell you where to get that ifyou donot already have it
once you check into the closest port to usa, which on west side is ensenada, you are good for all mexico--checking into each port/harbor is either in person at port captains office, or via channel 16. both ways work.
as for tip, aka temporary import permit
, do it in first port or find out how much time they give you for that task.i was given 6 months to effect that issue, but that was under the last pres--now it might be different. i suggest you get that as soon as possible, as one never knows how long one may need to remain in mexico-- i was only gonna be here 4 days lol..has been 4 years this coming april.
