We are so excited to have you with us! Here are some tips for getting to our meeting spot.
It is important to leave plenty of time to get to our meeting spot—especially during US holiday weekends when travelers are making their way to Baja.
Our start time indicates the time we begin walking as a group into Mexico. Please arrive 10 minutes early for check-in.
Our Meeting Spot
Our meeting spot is in front of the McDonald’s at 727 E San Ysidro Blvd, San Ysidro, CA 92173. It’s right next to the San Ysidro Trolley stop plaza at the San Ysidro—Tijuana International border.
Your CTH host will be wearing a black CTH tote bag.
Our Drop-off spot
Our driver will drop us off on the Mexico side of the border near the pedestrian entrance to the US. There, at the PedEast entry, you will be processed individually by U.S. Customs. Upon exiting U.S. Customs border facility, you will be back at our original meeting spot.
Riding the Trolley
Perhaps the best option! Our meeting spot is right at the San Ysidro/International Border Station. It’s $5 US dlls p/person for a round trip.
Here is the map and schedule for the Blue Line.
Tip: You can drive and park one or two stations away from the San Ysidro/International Border Station and ride the trolley to the meeting spot.
Using Uber or Lyft is another preferred option. You won’t regret it after a full day of eat-ing + drinking.
Driving + Parking
If you choose to drive to the meeting spot, please plan accordingly and leave plenty of time to find a parking spot. Parking lots are often full and raise their prices during holiday weekends. During weekends, especially around US and Mexican holidays, it can be very difficult to find parking availability in the lots near the San Ysidro International Border.
Note: Parking price averages around $25+ US dlls (note that some charge in 6-8hour increments depending on the lot)
There are several parking lots around our meeting area, here is a list:
