I’m driving to Austin TX next week and am interested in the stretch of road along the US-Mexico border, on Mexico highways 2 and 20 which is about 300 miles long. I’d enter Tijuana at the Otay Mesa border crossing in the early morning on Tue 23 Feb after buying my 1-day car insurance in Chula Vista, and plan to do this stretch during daylight. 300 miles, should be doable.
Is it safe these days? I’ve driven thousands of miles in Mexico but the last time I did was about ten years ago. I’ve never before done this stretch of road before except for the Otay Mesa border crossing, again, 10 years ago.
Also, is Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument worth a look-see?
