3. There are two ways to get down there:
1) Drive your car
Border wait times at the San Ysidro border can be very long during peak commute hours.
There are number of options to beat the queues.
One is to get a ‘FastPass’, which enables you to cut the queues.
2) Take the trolley, walk across the border and take a taxi to the dentist’s office.
For your initial visit if you don’t know where you’re going, walking across and taking a taxi is a better bet.
2. Don’t let exaggerations and rumors alarm you
People are surprised at how laid back things are in the city. Some people are afraid of being taken advantage of in Mexico, but in New Age Dental Clinic we offer honest evaluation and competitive prices for our dental work.
I’ve been in love with Mexico since I was a child. My parents would think nothing of crossing into Tijuana to camp on the beaches outside of town. That was long before it became the Spring Break debauchery capitol, before the recession, before 9/11 and the drug violence turned tourists away. Times have changed and over the past five years, Tijuana has become safer to visit than many American cities. I’ve been walking across the border to dental clinics, taken a bus to Dia de los Muertos celebrations, and crossed for weekend explorations with friends. There’s a renaissance going on and it’s close – a simple walk or drive across the border.

Tijuana is safe, once passports were required and were rigorously checked, traffic at the border slowed and long lines became the new norm. That is improving. Tourists are most welcome.
1. Is a passport really needed?
Technically, you don’t need it to go to Tijuana… just to come back into the U.S.
Mexico does not require a passport for tourism visitors entering from the U.S. side to border towns for short term visit. The U.S. however, does require a passport for people entering or returning from Mexico. Click here for more travel tips
