The Cambimax was closed both times I drove through last November and January. Could just be I just got unlucky with their hours or could be Covid related. No se. The King Ranch Market just south on Main street has a cambio that was open at 7am when I got there. Just inside and to the left of the front doors. Seemed to be a competitive rate and they had no problem with changing $500 US. Big parking lot for those towing.

Good Intel. Google says they are open 9am to 8pm. Closed Sundays.

I've never crossed at San Luis before. I'm heading down to San Felipe with my Truck and 35' trailer. Looking for some advise on the border crossing with a long truck and trailer. Also if someone has directions to the toll road that would be appreciated too!!

I cross at San Luis weekly. While pulling a 35' trailer you will have a very tough time making it thru the secondary/declaration line (On the left side of the port of entry) in San Luis. What I do and is what is the norm when crossing Southbound at San Luis with a large trailer or boat is to use the far right lane southbound.

As you approach, Mexican Customs will see you and have you stop in the far right lane under the ramada. They will place a cone behind your vehicle effectively closing the lane off while they look at your documents. (There are several other lanes open)

The office to get FMM, etc. will be directly to your right. Once you are clear to proceed you will travel straight ahead approximately 300 feet to the traffic light and make a right turn onto Ave. Obregon (also is the toll road).
