Interested in Going to Mexico?
Many residents of Yuma and winter visitors cross the border for a fun time shopping and enjoying Mexican food. They also go for dental care and eyeglasses.
Los Algodones (Baja California), is a village just west of Yuma while San Luis Rio Colorado (Sonora) is a much bigger city located to the south of Yuma. Both have a heavy concentration of dentists, opticians and pharmacies along with lots of souvenir vendors, restaurants and bars. Since tourists are the focus in these border communities, the currency of choice is the American dollar and English is almost universally spoken. Most tourist-oriented businesses are within an easy stroll of the border.
Now that you’ve had a great time exploring Mexico, you’ll need to be prepared with the necessary documents that will allow you to return back across the border.
With Increased Border Security, You’ll Need the Following:
Citizens of Canada and other countries should bring passports from their country of origin – plus a visa if one was required for your original entry into the United States.
U.S. Citizens Should Bring One of the Following:
- U.S. Passport – This is the internationally recognized travel document that verifies a person’s identity and nationality, accepted for travel by air, land and sea.
- U.S. Passport Card – This new, limited-use travel document fits into your wallet and costs less than a passport, but is only valid for travel by land and sea.
- Enhanced Driver’s License – Several states and Canadian provinces are issuing special drivers licenses that denote both identity and citizenship specifically for cross-border travel by land or sea.
