Will my cell phone work in Baja?
Call your local service provider before you leave to find out if it needs to be activated for use in Baja. If you travel to Baja frequently and need cellular service, it might just be easier and cheaper to take advantage of one of the many low priced local cellular promotions that include a phone and a pre-set amount of time. You will then have a phone that you can use whenever you are traveling to México. You can add more time by way of a prepaid card if needed, and you can use it again on every trip.
Is there Uber in Mexico?
There is Uber in México, however, Uber does not pick up from the airport. Also, only three people are allowed in the Uber. If you plan to be driving/exploring, we recommend renting a car from Cactus Rent-A-Car. We offer roundtrip and one way private luxury airport transportation with the option to stop at the grocery store on the way to the condo.
What can I use as proof of citizenship to enter Baja?
You will have to show a valid passport to receive a tourist visa. If you have some questions you feel you need to have answered before your trip, call the Mexican Counsel General’s office in Los Angeles, CA at (213) 351-6800.
***This statement was taken directly off of The Counsel General of México (Los Angeles) website: IMPORTANT: Starting from January 1, 2008, all foreign permanent residents in the United States traveling to Mexico for tourism, transit or business reasons should get the immigration form FMTTV directly through the airline, or port of entrance to Mexico showing a valid passport, official ID and the “green card”, if applicable.
***Remember that a recent U.S. law requires everyone returning to the U.S. to have a passport and valid Covid-19 Test.
