Mexicali to Tecate via Highway 2-D from Highway 5, 83 miles


[working on the road guide and since we don't have any Highway 2 listings yet, thought I would add some]

Highway 5 northbound travelers can only access Highway 2-D west from the southbound side of Highway 5. A U-turn from north to south can be made about ½ mile (1 km.) north of the Highway 2-D overpass. Log begins when leaving Highway 5.

Km. 12.5 (Mile 0) Hwy. 2-D, Libramiento de Mexicali at Hwy. 5 westbound.
Km. 13.5+ (Mile 0.7) Toll booth Mexicali (75 pesos).
Km. 14 (Mile 1.0) Pemex station/ restrooms.
Km. 41 (Mile 18.1) Junction with 4-lane Highway 2 at Km. 18.
Km. 24 Laguna Salada access road.
Km. 28 Guadalupe Canyon access road.
Km. 42 Military Checkpoint.
Km. 42.5 Pemex station/ Oxxo market (under construction).
Km. 61.5 Toll booth La Rumorosa (24 pesos).
Km. 92.5 Toll booth El Hongo (70 pesos).
Km. 117+ Exit toll Highway 2-D for free Highway 2 (Tecate east) for the border.

Go 1.4 miles, passing the Tecate industrial park, to the signed right (north) turn to the U.S. Border entrance in 2.6 additional miles. A Pemex gas station with restrooms is on the right, 0.4 mile past the border access intersection, if needed.

David, if your entry for "La Grulla market" is referring to Juan Villarreal's market and restaurant with all the offroading memorabilia and stickers, the name of the place is "Acambaro." It is located in the area called Rancho La Grulla. They have excellent birria, among other things, and serve great local queso fresco with their chips and salsa. A great stop for a cold, frosty Michelada, as shown here by Juan.

Thanks... I called it 'La Grulla' based on that location reference and that others use it. I want my data to be spot on, so I will edit the name. Thank you!

OK, done... I have only been in there one time (in 2007) around midnight, driving home from Bahia Concepcion... I needed a Monster Energy Drink!
