On June 1, 2009, the U.S. government implemented the full requirements of the land and sea phase of WHTI. U.S. citizens entering the United States at sea or land ports of entry must have a passport, passport card, or other travel document approved by the Department of Homeland Security. For more information, please click here.
This essentially means that most of our guests MUST have their passport to enter and leave Mexico. Visitors from countries other than the US or Canada via San Diego (and returning to San Diego) must also bring a passport and any necessary and current visas that allow re-entry into the U.S. Also, they should check with their country's Mexican Consulate to obtain a visa or to find out if citizens qualify under a visa waiver.
Mexican Tourist Tax will be collected by a Rancho La Puerta representative during your arrival process if you arrive via our buses from the San Diego Airport. You will need to bring $30 U.S. Dollars in cash (small denominations to ensure you have the exact amount).
