Transportation options to travel from Ensenada, Mexico (the OIV World Congress) to Santa Rosa, CA, USA.
While the suggested plans are designed to help everyone arrive on time, air travel and border crossing delays are common. The times below have been intentionally padded in anticipation of delays, but the safest option is to leave as much time as possible for arriving at each destination. The FIVS Secretariat suggests that travellers spend one night in San Diego after crossing the border before flying to Santa Rosa.
- See the Detailed Recommended Transportation Options here or read the quick overview below.
Option A – Use a car service to cross the border and then fly from San Diego to Santa Rosa ($150-750 per person approx., 10-12 hours of travel plus suggested overnight stay in San Diego)
- Hire a car service to cross the border, traveling from Ensenada to San Diego.
- Overnight in San Diego.
- Fly from San Diego to Santa Rosa, Oakland, or San Francisco.
- Ground transportation to downtown Santa Rosa.
Option B – Fly from Tijuana to San Francisco or Oakland with a layover ($300-700 per person approx., 14 hours of travel)
- Arrange transportation from Ensenada to the Tijuana Airport.
- Fly to another Mexican airport that offers flights to U.S. cities, Tijuana being only a domestic airport.
