My understanding is that once you have cleared into the country you only need to check in and out with the port captain in each port. Some want you to come into their office and fill out forms and some only require you to call in on your radio.

Re: Mexican Liability Coverage

what they like you to do is to call on vhf to state you are there. some ports appreciate a handshake in the office--is respect, not mandatory anymore.

Heading USA to Mexico? Important Information — Noonsite

US officials are reluctant to provide a zarpe but 'CBP form 1300' looks like one and you just need to get it signed and stamped. The agent in Cancun assured me that if we paid him $150+ to clear us in the Zarpe problem could be avoided.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection - Forms

They also get very upset if you enter with firearms and on our last visit the custom's man said that his dog was trained to smell drugs and guns.
Not saying the guy was a liar, but the odds of having a dog that can smell ammunition and narcotics is very small. From what I saw in drug work for every 100 drug dogs there are 20 explosives dogs and 1 ammunition dog.

Ammunition just doesn't have as powerful of a smell and more practically speaking imagine the amount of guns and ammunition a police or military service dog is exposed to constantly.
