Plan is go via Baja and get the ferry from La Paz to Matelzan.

My question is - where do I do immigration and TVIP in this case? Any issues I need to watch out for?


Unless it's changed since April, an online TVIP will take about 3 days by Fedex courrier after you've completed the application. When you receive the permit, there is an option to email them addtional info which will not require stopping at the Banjercito office when you enter Mexico....
