Getting from Mexicali to airport at Calexico

My daughter and I are trying to work out how difficult it would be to get from Lucerna Hotel in Mexicali to the airport at Calexico to catch a flight from Calexico to La dep at 2.48pm. We have never been to Mexico before, and think there may be two border crossings available - Calexico East and Calexico West...it seemed that that Calexico East had quicker crossing times? Anyway, our question is basically how can we get from Lucerna Hotel in Mexicali to the airport at Calexico (IPL: El Centro/Imperial) and how much might it cost us.

Thanks to anyone who might be able to reply.

You have a couple of options, depending on what you have for luggage. First you can take a cab from the hotel to the downtown port and walk across and take a taxi to the airport. You could take a taxi and cross the border in a taxi, however they may make you get out once you cross. The East port is quicker crossing but a bit out of your way.

Thanks - had the wrong airport anyway - to fly to LA had to get to imperial airport - calexico airport only for small private planes! Anyway found that walking over the border into calexico and catching taxi was best bet - about US$40 .

On Jan. 02, 2014, we are arriving at Mexicali International Airport and we need to go to Calexico East Border Cross. Since we are in the small group of 13 people, what would be the best transportation to get to Calexico? Anybody out there give me any advise? Please.
