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?



I've only crossed into Baja at Mexicali. If you cross there, the aduana/immigration is right as you cross the border. They were really great about 3 years ago, when they let me in without my original title. I've always thought that if I had been crossing into the US, things wouldn't have gone so well, and I'd have been pounding the slab back to home to pick up said title.
