We’re here! We arrived at Totonaka RV Park in San Carlos at 2 pm on Saturday; we made GREAT time since we didn’t need to stop at KM 21 to handle any paperwork. If you don’t have your visas and the hologram for your vehicles before crossing the border, KM 21 (21 kilometers south of the border) is where you stop to handle the paperwork.

As we passed by, the ENTIRE parking lot was jammed with rigs - motor homes towing cars, trucks towing 5th wheels, truck campers, trucks and trailers, cars - including the caravan we had seen parked near the Walmart in Nogales. The line of people was a long serpentine, and we know from experience that each person or couple takes 15 or 20 minutes to process. We were SO glad we had done the paperwork in Naco, where it took all of 10 minutes. After a 2 minute inspection by the customs agent, we breezed on through.

  1. We are looking forward to our trip into Mexico next month- thanks for the heads up about the paperwork- we will have all ours done ahead of time.
