Thanks for the info, that has been my choice of entry points for a while now. I had a little trouble reconciling the link posted because Ceasar Chavez is also called out as River Rd on some maps.

I hope that the Mexican side has the wisdom to add more parking spots for INM if they really want us to all get FMM tourist cards!

When we have several vehicles going in together at least one of our guys gets seriously hassled, maybe even paying an assessment, for parking in places that were not proper.
Total bummer...
If they want us to comply with immigration issues then they should provide some reasonable parking.
The ingress at San Ysidro is marvelous in the big parking layout
Very convenient and very efficient!!

Video of new Mexicali West entrance drive.


Looks like a big deal and totally new. The video ends before I could tell where they were in relation to the street for San Felipe with the train tracks in the center. Maybe a whole new way?

The old entry point was tight on parking spaces, but at least I knew where to get the FMM! I am guessing that to get one now, I will have to keep to the left, but would appreciate a confirmation if someone passes through there in the near future.

It is good to see that 'stop' signs are just a suggestion.

From the video and maps it looks like the new exit is on to Calzada de Los Presidentes.
