Driving from the United States

If you drive (your car or a rental), remember that you must purchase supplemental Mexican auto insurance even if your U.S. policy covers you in Mexico. Rental cars that are allowed to be driven into Mexico are available from agencies at the San Diego International Airport.

Heading south, take either the 5 or 805 freeway to the Mexican border (The 5 and 805 merge just before the border crossing).

Crossing the Border - When you reach the border there will be a light that either flashes green or red. If you get the green light, proceed into Mexico. If you get the red light, you will need to pull into the Secondary Inspection area as directed by Mexican customs officials. This inspection is standard so don’t be alarmed.
