Here is a little bit of info:
*I live about 10 mins from the Otay border.
*I cross to the U.S. through Otay but I go back home to Mexico through San Ysidro border crossing.
*Crossing fluxuates as little as 15 mins to 2 hrs. You have to be very open minded and patient...
*I have a p.o. box in San Diego where I recieve all my mail.
*85% of my grocery shopping is done in San Diego. I have found it to be cheaper than in Mexico and the stores have what we are used to.
*Otay is a good place to live.
* There are lots of things to do on the weekends and very affordable.. Movies, beaches, pier, Ensenada, Beautiful Parks, Mountains, Water park, Shopping, the biggest and best swap meets ever, camping, concerts.... note: this is not in any typical order.. lol
*I have a pretty big family so I am not going to get into how much I spend on groceries.
*I spend about $50 weekly crossing back and forth from work. Not including weekend excursions.
Again, I am more then happy to help you out with anyother questions you need and in helping make this as smooth as possible for you and your family!!!
