Driving Instructions in Tijuana, MX

One great perk of bringing your car to Tijuana and visiting EG Dental is our Fast Pass service for your return journey across the border. With the Fast Pass, you can access a dedicated medical/dental lane that puts you at the front of the line, allowing you to cross the border in just 15 to 20 minutes. It’s a convenient and time-saving option for our patients, ensuring a smoother and faster border crossing experience.

"Things to Remember"

  • As you approach the US-Tijuana border, make sure you have all your necessary documents, including your passport and any required permits.
  • Use the designated lane to enter Mexico and pass through Mexican Customs. Be prepared to show your passport and fill out a tourist entry form if required.
  • Once you’re in Tijuana, pay attention to traffic signs and local driving customs. Be aware that traffic rules may differ from what you’re used to in the US.
  • Keep your car locked when driving in busy areas and be cautious of pedestrians, cyclists, and other drivers.
  • Use navigation apps or GPS to help you navigate through the city and find your destination easily.
  • Take note of parking areas and follow parking regulations to avoid any issues.
  • If you’re unsure about directions or need assistance, don’t hesitate to ask locals for help. Many people in Tijuana are friendly and willing to assist visitors.

Driving Instructions 1


After passing through the inspection lane, follow the flow of cars out of Mexican Customs. As you exit, follow the signs leading to ZONA RIO. Stick to the left lanes, go up a ramp, and then make a right onto the main street. Stay towards the right and merge smoothly. In your view ahead, there’s a COSTCO. Drive past it, and now you’re on PASEO de los HEROES, the main street. 

Driving Instructions 2


Start by heading South on either Interstate 5 or 805. These two freeways merge at the border. As you cross into Mexico, the traffic will turn right along the border fence before you reach Mexican Customs. Choose a traffic lane and proceed through the control lanes. A traffic light will signal either green or red. Green means you can continue, while red requires a stop for inspection.

Soon after, you’ll spot OFFICE DEPOT. Make a right turn after it. Just a short distance away, on your left, there’s the “Farmacia Del Sol” pharmacy. Behind it, with the main entrance on the adjacent street, is our building, “Medica Norte.”
