***IMPORTANT TRAVELING INFORMATION AND TIMES***
*** You will need a PASSPORT! The U.S. does require a passport book or card to cross back over the boarder. This process can take 6-7 months to complete. Check with your local Postoffice about the passport application process. A second option is to apply for a passport card (This choice comes with a reduction of approximately $100 in cost and offers a quicker process).
**If you are flying, you will need to arrive at the San Diego airport and be ready to be picked no later than 3:00pm on JULY 18th. We will have volunteers and shuttle vans available at that time to transport you from the airport to the hotel. If that is not achievable, you will need to be responsible for your own means of transportation from the airport to the hotel. We will cover transportation from the hotel to Mexico and back.
