A recent visitor wrote us to provide a bit of good border-crossing advice.
Thanks for the wonderful send off at the end of our trip. A trip that we will remember forever. Both Lana and I agree that it is the most remember able trip that we have every been on. The chicken and straw berries did a good job in tying us over until we got to SD.
The motel we stay at in SD is the Padre Trail Inn on Taylor. There are really interesting shops and super Mexican restaurant right across the street. Old Town is a mere five minute walk. And a main transportation link is the same five minute walk. Rates are excellent, rooms are clean. Includes a continental breakfast and parking. I have parked there for two weeks without cost.
Just to let you know that we arranged for a cab at the airport to take us back SD. The driver was great and spoke English. The taxi gate at customs was closed for over and hour so we had to wait on the US side until he got over to pick us up. I would suggest that anyone using this service have a phone number to call back to dispatch should the flow of crossing the border be interrupted. Or maybe if the cabbie had our cell number he would have called us to let us know of the delay. Luckily we had a taxi number to call to find out why he did not show when expected.
Will always think of you and your family with the very kind hospitality. It would be a pleasure to recommend your trip package.
Karl and Lana
