Driving south, they just waved us through, no interaction.

Report Check-In

caravanning with friends. they did a quick search of the first vehicle and waved us through.

Report Check-In

I was waved thru going south. Today, going north, inspection. We managed to only let one person inside and filmed the whole time. Went fine. But I can see how with two inside theft could occur.

Report Check-In

The guy said he worked for Immigration. Asked for id and the FFM. That’s all. No search.

Report Check-In

great experience. asked where I was coming from where I was going and how I was doing. Fairly good English. They asked if I had a dog inside and I said yes and then they saw her and they just waved me through. (solo female)

Report Check-In

Be careful here. I made a big mistake here of being distracted by multiple guards and took my eye off the one in the cab while another one was asking me something else. They stole 1000 pesos, a pocket knife, and flashlight. I realized it before I left the inspection and called them out and they played dumb. Bottom line is I messed up and if you only allow one to do the inspection and keep your eye on them, you should be fine.

Report Check-In

No search northbound today. This is the second time we’ve been through this checkpoint with no issues.

Active military checkpoint, they stoped us and asked if we can open our van. The man entered in the van and asked us to open all the drawers and the fridge. After 10 minutes of registration, he let us pass !

Report Check-In

northbound pretty chill, one guy very chatty, asking me for my phone #, calling me beautiful. distraction! made sure to go sit in my camper with the guy who was searching. he was deep in my laptop bag, usually I bring that into the car with me for checkpoints. overall didn't feel sketchy, guys were young and flirty, just invasive as all checks feel . Solo female with a med size dog, SUV and small camper.

Report Check-In

Asked if we were married, talked about kids and where we were headed. Strange but friendly. Northbound no search.

Report Check-In

Got stopped going southbound. Asked a lot of questions, wanted to see inside the vehicle. Spotted a flashlight and asked how much I paid for it and if I want to sell it. I refused to sell it and the search stopped. The guy was not unfriendly but gave the impression he wants to find or get something.

Report Check-In

heading Southbound: waved through. Seems like they focus on northbound travelers.

Quick stop today northbound. Opened side door, looked in, and sent us on our way!

Report Check-In

Traveling Northbound ~11am in Sprinter van. Most thorough search of the past 3 months in Baja. ~30 minute search looking in every drawer in the vans interior. They found a decoy wallet and immediately handed back to me without looking inside. Seemed to be a very honest search until the very end, after turning up nothing illegal, decided to confiscate an electronic cigarette (nicotine only). Didn't ask for $$, and I didn't have the energy to argue...

Report Check-In

Northbound. Asked; where are you from?, where are you going? vacation? .. Made me roll down my rear (tinted) windows and said. ok, go.

Report Check-In

nice guys, took a peek inside without boarding the rig.

Report Check-In

Officer came in our low roof van, immediately turned our bluetooth speaker on and asked how much it cost, asked if we only had one. Pretended to not understand Spanish and he got bored. He tried to open a cabinet that had a latch, couldn't get it open and just gave up. Said we were good and walked out. Bizarre experience, should know better not to leave electronics out I suppose.

Report Check-In

Very nice, just asked where we were going. Only opened back of van, we are packed, just looked and sent us on our way. Main questions were about our cat, they were very nice.

Report Check-In

Waved through going southbound - no problem

Report Check-In

they asked to check inside our van which was normal for us at military checkpoints. the guy just opened a couple drawers then moved to our clothes bins. after he looked through one of my boyfriends he moved down to my bins and asked if it was mine, i said yes, then he moved to my underwear drawer and spent the most time looking through that, then said we were okay and left. being a girl, that was weird. we later met up with our friends that went through this checkpoint a couple hours earlier and said they also had checked through her underwear bin for an odd amount of time. so all i’m sayin is, hide ya undies ladies.

Report Check-In

Going north, they checked our camper for like 10 minutes, another guy asked questions and took our personal details but they were all very friendly!

Report Check-In

nice people, they checked inside the van and asked us questions on our travel, no problems.

Report Check-In

Heading north. The soldier asked us where we were from and then waved us on through. We didn't have to show any documents or get out of the car for inspection.

Report Check-In

Pretty thorough inspection, they got up in our camper and poked around, opened drawers, etc. One soldier had a Go Pro filming the inspection and another took info from my license.

Report Check-In

Report Check-In

Report Check-In

Heading south it’s a little further along the road then the coordinates suggest. It is not closed. Asked where we were and where we were going. Northbound looked to be a pretty good search. Saw people outside their cars while 3 guys were searching their vehicle.

Report Check-In

Standard checkpoint, keep your eyes on the guy inside. Was open on both my north and southbound route.

Report Check-In

This checkpoint is most definitely open as of 2/20/2019. The soldier with machine gun wave is through heading south, after I told him we’re tourists.

Report Check-In

this military checkpoint is open again. We passed through with a couple of questions and no search of the interior of the van. A very pleasant young soldier with broken English

Report Check-In

This military checkpoint appears to be closed. there was no one there and we drove straight through.

Report Check-In

I wasn't able to find this place.

Report Check-In

New location, use these coordinates
No check southbound

Report Check-In

No problem with this one. Didn’t even check inside of trailer. Very friendly

Report Check-In

When we arrived, everybody seemed to be chillin and we weren’t sure of the signal they were doing, waving to continue or to stop..?
So we stopped and they took the opportunity to do a little inspection inside the van asking all kinds of weird questions we couldn’t really understand (jokes i think). They saw our 2 cats and were asking if we had more, we said no, wish is true. They asked if we had marijuana, all these things then they left. (took like 3 minutes). Everytime we cross a military stop, we turn on the go pro to look inside our van from the dashboard so, sometime they see it and i think it protects us a little more in case of anything. But they are usually nice. :)

Report Check-In

As described! Really nice and honest people.

Report Check-In

super friendly, waved us through south bound no checks.

Report Check-In

Everyone was on a break so got waved through no issue!

Report Check-In

Easy. Nobody in southbound lane. All guys were hiding in the shade or waiting for cars going north.

Report Check-In

No trouble, no search. Asked if we spoke Spanish, we said a little and he said he spoke a little English so conversation was minimal.
Asked where we came from, if we were on vacation and “no guns or drugs?” We said no and he sent us on our way!

Report Check-In

Heading south this was by far the most thorough search. Two of them separately looked through almost every bag inside our rv.

It's a few km before gps. Nice guys one from San cristobal. Checked vehicle with dog.

Report Check-In

Nice guys, inspected my van, looked in the garbage, through my dirty laundry, under my bed, and asked where I came from and if I had reefer. Inspection took about five minutes before they were satisfied and sent me on my way.

Report Check-In
