It is located at on the Colorado River, which at this point marks the state border with Baja California. It also stands on the international border with the United States, adjacent to San Luis, Arizona.

It is a port of entry for U.S. tourists. The downtown area consists of bars, strip clubs, hotels, restaurants, and a large number of curio stores, which sell a large variety of artesanias (handicrafts, leather art, handmade flowers, clothes) brought from the deeper central and southern states of Mexico. Local dishes commonly available in restaurants include many types of antojitos (Mexican food) such as enchiladas, tacos, burritos with carne machaca (dried meat), menudo and tamales.

It has become one of the providers of medical and dental care in Mexico for patients from the U.S., with care that is comparable in professionalism, equipment, and competency at prices that are 40% to 60% cheaper than in the USA.

There is a safe and free public parking lot 20 yards before the border on the US side.


IMPORTANT NOTE: A passport or other WHTI-compliant travel document is necessary for U.S. and Canadian citizens traveling to Mexico. You may not be asked to present your passport if entering Mexico by land, but you will surely need to present one upon your return to the United States.

SO HAVE A PASSPORT WITH YOU!

From Yuma, Arizona go on On US 95, before crossing the border. you'll first arrive in San Luis, Arizona.

Shopping in Mexico is really fun! They have many hand-crafted items that are not available in the US. You buy handmade crafts, jewelry, leather goods, art, decor, pottery, basketry, rugs, paintings and even furniture for about half of the perceived value.

Unlike the US where customers pay the price marked on the item, in Mexico shopping is a game about bargaining. You ask "how much" and they give you the "list price" which seems to differ at every marketplace. You will offer a price that is less than half of the asking price, and the vendor will then make a counter-offer. After the bargaining has run its course, you end up paying about half-price.

We take dollars, which they accept. But we keep it secure.

Not all places will take credit cards or checks.


There are also Mexican pharmacies where you can purchase prescription drugs at substantially less cost than in the US.

Be sure you have a valid prescription from you regular doctor specifically written for your usage. You may be asked for that information.

Also be sure to ask the pharmacist about the legalities of buying prescriptions in Mexico. Note: In many cases prescriptions are not required to buy, but officials may want to see them when coming back into the US.


Americans go San Luis to see dentists and get dental work since dental services are also less expensive in Mexico. If you know someone who has used Nogales dentists, ask them for recommendations.


Crossing The Border Into San Luis:

Unless you are traveling deeper into Mexico, it is best to park your vehicle on the American side of the border. Fees are nominal and the border crossing is close to parking areas. Remember you must have Mexican auto insurance in Mexico and by parking on the US side of the border, you won't have to worry about buying the separate insurance.

If you plan to make your visit any longer than 72 hours, you will need to procure a “tarjeta de turista,” known in the U.S. as a Mexican government tourist card. Remember that now a valid passport is required to re-enter the USA.

There are hotels and motels all along the way in nearby towns, as well as in San Luis.

We have some links to Priceline.com on this page since they can arrange all of your air flights, hotels and car.

We personally use the Holiday Inn Express & Suites in Yuma. They have free breakfast. Use our IHG Links to contact Holiday Inn Express & Suites in Yuma. No Obligation.
