Thank you very much. This is exactly the info I needed. Only doing Baja this trip so only need Tourist Card since we will be there about a month. San Luis Rio Colorado is probably where we will enter Mexico. Was not sure that San Rio was far enough west that TVIP would not be needed.

Thanks again;

If you cross at San Luis Rio Colorado south of Yuma
or any of the points in California
you are good with just your insurance and if you plan to stay longer
than 72 hours a Tourist Card .
TVIP is only required if crossing to the mainland down south and it can be obtained
at Pichilingue ferry terminal customs office
