Can anyone tell me how you cross the border into Mexico from Yuma? Is it just off The 8? Or how would I Google directions as I’m not familiar with it. Thank you

Algodones is the closest border crossing to Yuma, only about 8 miles IIRC. A popular crossing for snowbirds to get medicine or Dental work. There is a parking lot just before the crossing if you are walking over. The lot is on Native land and there is a charge, how much I don't know. ( I left Yuma in '11) San Luis is a more touristy place, with lots of shopping for trinkets right across the border.

Thanks, this is the one I ended up going to. I am a Canadian with an E2 Visa and first off I tried Algodones border but they had no idea what they were doing, but I got things sorted out at San Luis.
