Time for Lobsters in Puerto Nuevo!!!

Updated on 5/29/14 

Rendez vous place at 11 am sharp:  Jack In the Box
721 E San Ysidro Blvd
San Ysidro, CA 92173

Hi all:
Since it was so much fun from going to TJ, having dinner, and clubbing last time, we are now going to Puerto Nuevo for a day trip to eat lobsters, drink beers, enjoy the beach, and one another's company. Some of our members and my staff live in TJ, and we are going. If you want to join us, you are welcome.  If you are going, please make sure that you have your passport or a form of ID and a birth certificate.  Bring at least $100 in cash, as ATM is expensive. We can car pool.  We meet at the border at 11 am.  Closer to date, I will give out my phone number for contact.  :-)

  • My T.

    Hi all. Please make sure that you have your passports and cash in small bills for easy transactions. Everyone, please go to the JIB by the trolley as there are people riding the trolley and it is closer, save time. I will be there before 11a. Aside from the folks from this site who are paired with drivers, I have two more who will need a ride, and they can go with JFallon who also offers to give rides. Thank you all for making this happen. It will be fun. In Puerto Nuevo, our rendez vous is the address listed on the site and we can decide to eat there or elsewhere. After we eat, we go to Rosarito for a short spell, and then head over to Alex's place. We visit and we leave for the USA from there. My phone does not work in Mexico, but it is no problem as Fermin's and Alejandro's phones are good. I will give out these #s later. Again, thanks, everyone for making the trip happens.

      Since it sounds like the group *might* consider alternative venues besides the Grand Baja Hotel, I'd vote for a less expensive and perhaps more "local" venue--if everyone else is up for that. No doubt the hotel is lovely, but I'm guessing a lobster meal there will be *a lot* more expensive than perhaps other lobster joints in Puerto Nuevo. REALLY looking forward to this! :-))

      I wonder if everyone is returning, does Alex still has a place to crash? In case, I could just "explore" more ;)

      May 29

  • J f.

    Yes My I am driving. I can take 2 people... 3 if they really like each other because it would be tight in the back seat.

    1 · May 29

    • Kamlesh

      If nobody opts, I'll get two chics with me for a back seat camaraderie. All I know is they like me ;)

      May 29

    • My T.

      Thanks John. I have two tennis players in my group needing a ride. Pls meet us at the jackinthebox near the trolley. I posted the address earlier today. We will be there shortly before 11 am. I am so excited that we are going.

      May 29

  • My T.

    Updated news. Alex said that he was not able to rent a van, and he generously offered to transport 3-4 people in his car. I have sent him a message to see how people will be meeting with him. I have so far had four people (Linda, Barbara, Shawn, and Slobodan) confirmed from this site. Alex can you please reply to the people?

    1 · May 28

    • Kamlesh

      Yes, My. I got it. Alex, I don't mind being a injured superman for a few hours

      1 · May 29

    • Alex ".

      LOL. You' get there one way or another.

      May 29

  • My T.

    JFallon: Hi John. are you driving? Thanks.

    May 29

  • Alex ".

    If you are not coming with My be there by 11 am as I will be going as soon as she arrives. 11 am is already kind of late to set off on the trip, so no stragglers please. Meet behind the Jack-in-the-box where cars can pick people up.

    402 W San Ysidro blvd. This is the address for jack in the box. Departing from here at 11 am sharp.

    May 27

    • Shawn M

      I am really looking forward to this. I will be glad to chip in for the car pool and van.

      May 27

  • My T.

    Hi all:

    I spoke with Alex this evening, and this is how we are going to do this. He is going to rent a van and we will cross the border and meet him. It will be $20 per person and it is a day trip. People can come to my house and we can car pool to the border and park it at a lot. The lot is across Jack in the Box. Then we will walk across the bridge to meet Alex. We plan to be at the border by 11am, so people can meet at my place by 1015a to drive there. I need two cars to drive to the lot. Parking fee will be shared by those who carpool. Whoever really wants to go, please email me or text me at[masked]-7562. Thanks.

    1 · May 26

    • Barbara C.

      I'm wondering about the return time b/c I've decided to do just the *day trip* and just wondering how late the van will be bringing us back to the border crossing. Thank you. :-))

      May 27

    • My T.

      Alex said that he will have the van in TJ. This is a day trip. I hope to be back to San Diego by 8pm. $20 is round trip. The meet up is in front of jack in the box where we will park our car. We will start crossing at 11a n will not be able to wait for people. So please be ready. And it is best to give me your number. Or direct email n not via the meet up site to save time. Thanks

    i have sent out an email about carpooling and availability for a final head count.

    May 23

    • Kamlesh

      Barbara, I'll forward the email this evening. Remind me during potluck.

      1 · May 25

    • Slobodan

      Carpooling.

      May 25

  • Kamlesh

    Do we have a head count of who is staying over night? This will be my first trip to Mexico, do I'm game for over night stay. Gotta hit a club for some salsa ;) Alex, Is your place available to crash for a night?

    May 15

    • Alex ".

      I have a big corner couch that would probably be good for two people

      1 · May 23

    • Kamlesh

      Alex, I don't mind the corner couch for a night if I'm staying overnight.

      May 23

  • My T.

    We will communicate via email closer to date as to a plan of action. So far, we are going to meet at the border @1030am. Bring passport n $100 in cash as ATM n c/c are expensive. Am still waiting to hear who can drive in Mexico or we can rent a car.

    May 17

  • Kamlesh

    Woohoo! Couple of weeks to go and I'm so excited! My Tran, Alex, are we all going to meet somewhere here and decide on our trip before we leave on Saturday 31st?

    May 16

    • Alex ".

      I guess some are walking across and others will have to walk. We will fine tune closer to the event.

      May 16

  • My T.

    Car pooling is a good idea

    1 · May 4

    • Alex ".

      Carpooling to the border is good to split parking cost too.

      May 16

    • Kamlesh

      I'm not driving, but willing to carpool with anybody who is driving. I'm more than happy to share parking and ride expenses

      1 · May 16

  • Barbara C.

    For my own planning purposes, I'm wondering how late do you anticipate this event to last?

    May 3

    • Alex ".

      The best time to cross back by foot is starting about 10 pm as rule, at this time the wait starts to be negligible. There are other things to do when you wait until night. Eating may not be one as hopefully you will get full at Puerto Nuevo.

      May 4

    • Barbara C.

      I wasn't sure I'd be able to make it for a while there, but I'm a definite YES now, and no time limits either... can't wait! :D

    it sounds interesting...

    This sounded like so much fun but, I realized that I have a half Marathon the next day... I hope you can do it again. I love going to Mexico! :-(

      Joani, Thanks for posting the information for who to call. Who is Joe though? An email will be much appreciated.

    • Alex ".

      So Joani you are going to drive?

      May 5

  • Alex ".

    The transportation issue will be dealt with closer to the event. The important thing is to get a head count on who is going and then work from there.

    May 5

  • Irina

    Are we going to meet at the border? Any car pool in Mexico? I am not comfortable to drive there...

    May 3

    • Barbara C.

      I feel much the same way, so I'd also be interesting in carpooling w/someone.

      1 · May 3

    • Kamlesh

      +1 on that! I like the idea of carpooling or a bus.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
