Driving from Langely BC to San Jose Del Cabo

We bought a condo in San Jose Del Cabo and want to drive our car down there.

We heard that any vehicle brought down must be 10 years or newer. We're wondering if this is true?

Will we need different insurance at the border?

Do you we need to put different car insurance on our vehicle (Mexican Decal?)

We plan on driving 10-12 hours per day and would love to know the best hotel/motels to sleep in.

Thank you for any responses.

Hi

For the BC - WA - OR - CA portion of the drive, I recommend the Road Trips forum: https:/…ShowForum-g1-i12567-Road_Trips.html

For the Baja California peninsula portion of the drive, try Baja Nomad http://forums.bajanomad.com/

No..

Yes, order online...BajaBound .com

No decal needed, that is only for a TIP.

I suggest you join the Cabo Expats facebook group - for people who live full or part-time in the Los Cabos. They share such riveting information as what you are asking, including where to find a good plumber, electrician, maintenance person, etc..... home owner type stuff. Couldn't post the link....just search for it on facebook. You will have to apply as only owners are invited to join.
