Please meet the shuttle driver promptly in front of the TC Worthy mini-mart on the U.S. side of the border. The TC Worthy store is not associated with Rancho La Puerta.

Note: If you are parking at the Tecate border, please arrive 30-minutes prior to the shuttle departure time and remember to bring $5-10 per day for parking fees. If you are being dropped off arrive 15-minutes prior to shuttle departure time.

(Due to summer tourist traffic between the Mexico and US border we strongly advise you to leave your car on the US side of the border.  Parking is easy and secure, and we provide shuttles to The Ranch from the border.  Be advised that if you chose to drive across, border wait times on Saturday are typically between three and five hours long.)

PLEASE NOTE: We recommend Mexican Auto Insurance when driving in Mexico. Please discuss this with your current insurance provider, as you may have coverage for a short distance across the border (we're only 3.3 miles in). Another option would be AAA or, just before you cross the border, there is a place that provides insurance, though it might be ideal to arrange for insurance in advance. In addition, you will need to be sure to take care of your visa ($32 in small bills) as you cross. If you prefer, you can drive directly to the Ranch and we will take you back to the border to help with this process.
