Anyone who has gone to Mexicali for dental work, please share: where did you park your rv in Calexico? What dentist did you visit? How did you get from the border to the dentist? How was the border crossing? Anything else I need to know?

Can't help with Mexicali. We go to the Purple Pharmacy in Los Algodones/Yuma, use the Quechan Casino CG, no hookups, low cost and plan to be there next week. We take the car to the res parking lot at the border. $7 to park the car. Can take the RV there and I don't have a RV parking cost. It's about a 2 block walk from there. Talked to several people that are satisfied with dental work there but have no personal experience, but search the internet for information. Perhaps a option as it's not far from Mexicali.

Suggest you review safety and border crossing waits. A few weeks ago there were reported US entry car waits of 11 hours at some border locations. [emoticon] No mention of walking entry waits. Last year it was 45 minutes for me at Los Algodones. The US border dogies always ignore us. [emoticon]

We've never been stopped going into Mexico unlike coming back. Google Earth will show all of the above.

thanks, CA traveler. looks like the main problem with the Mexicali idea is RV parking in Calexico. i would probably need to spend a couple of days or so
in the area, so your idea of using the Casino CG is good. Looks like i could even walk to the crossing from there.

Don't know about Mexicali. We also go to Algodones and stay at the Quechan casino. It is dry camping and has always been free in past years. I'm guessing that it is probably a half mile walk to the border from the casino. We always drove the car from the casino and paid the small fee to park in the border parking lot.

Thanks, Hotjag.
that's what we will probably do. Casino ain't no club med, but it has the location! looks like they are charging $10/night now. Wonder if it fills up with Rv medical tourists in the winter. i am considering Sani Dental Group. looks like they're the main act there!

The casino lot does not "fill" up, always room. There are also a couple of RV parks nearby if you don't want to dry park. It is quite a walk to the border. Depending what you have done it may not be in the best interest to walk back. The Indians charge $6.00 to park for the day. Sani Dental is one of only gosh knows how many dental offices in Algodones. But they may very be the largest advertiser. I've used Dr. Camacho just across the border for 16 years.

Thanks for the advice! couldn't tell from google earth if border parking was for rvs or not.
do you have contact information for your dentist?

zhidon1, you can park RVs in the Indian lot at the border. It costs more than a "regular" vehicle. Also, I don't think it can stay overnight without previous arrangements and then I don't think you can be in the RV overnight.

Good input above. From your signature you could camp anywhere and drive to the border parking lot. The casino CG is about a mile from the border, not sure as I always drive. I've seen campers immediately on the north side of I8, don't know anything about that area. There is a second casino CG in CA very close to I8 and the CA/AZ border, also dry camping and I don't recall any fee.
