Thanks. We'll be on dirt bikes so maybe we can squeeze into an opening somewhere close.. no fun walking 3 blocks in riding gear.

Kaslo, last time I got one there, there was an attendant who opened the barrier for me and let me in to park right in front of the office. There was a lot of construction going on. Then when I was leaving he stopped traffic for me and let me out. Not sure how it is now because it is constantly changing. Keep an eye out and there might be someone there to let you in.

Last Sunday we entered at the new West crossing, pulled over immediately and was asked for our FMM's. We told the guy that we were on our way to the old office to get them and he responded by saying that the office is now at the new crossing. It's on your immediate left upon crossing. Lots of parking available.
My son got a 7 day free one. Asked if he had to return it upon exiting Mexico and was told no, not necessary.
I had already gotten mine a couple of weeks ago at San Luis, AND, just as we were get on our bikes to leave, the official told me to show him my FMM. I did and were sent on our way.

Thank you for the update! I should be passing through there in the next couple of days, and now know what to look for.

If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

"Could do better if he tried!" Report card comments from most of my grade school teachers. Sadly, still true!

Wonderful news and good to hear about parking there, too.
Thank you.
