Legalize US Vehicles in Mexico
Let us help you permanently legalize your US purchased and plated car or truck to drive in Mexico!
We make it simple and hassle free for you!

Have you had a foreign vehicle in Mexico for many years but never bothered to legalize it?

Or did you bring a car to Mexico a few years ago but now the Customs sticker is expired and you're not sure what to do??


Stop Worrying! WE CAN HELP YOU!!

We know how to resolve virtually ALL vehicle related issues in order to get your foreign car or truck legal to drive again in Mexico!


Americans or Canadians who travel extensively throughout Mexico on tourist visas know the process of TEMPORARILY legalizing a foreign car to drive in the country as they cross the border into Mexico. This process allows foreign plated vehicles to legally drive the roads of Mexico sometimes for up to 6 months. For travellers and short term visitors who travel across the border frequently this process is relatively simple and works very well.

However, Americans and Canadians who elect to live part time in Mexico and want to bring their US vehicle with them have other options to consider. Some elect to simply bring their vehicles in and get the short term sticker from Customs at the border knowing they will be returning to the US and taking the auto out of Mexico before the Customs sticker expires. But for those who want to stay longer in Mexico than the temporary or short term Customs vehicle sticker allows or for those who want to bring an auto into Mexico and leave it to be used long term, a regular trip to the nearest Customs office is required in order to keep the vehicle legal over the long term.

In past times, simply finding a Mexican Customs office nearby could be near impossible and then for years the laws concerning foreigners and their vehicles was rather discombobulated so many foreign residents simply let their Customs permit stickers expire and decided to "take their chances" driving the car.

What happens if you are driving your car with an expired Customs sticker and get caught?
Without question your vehicle will be seized right then and there and a lengthy and costly recovery process will follow.

While the laws, regulations and requirements for foreigners and their cars have become clearer over the years, just the logistics of getting a vehicle to the nearest Customs office can often be a hassle ~ especially in Quintana Roo and other States with few or no Customs offices to handle vehicle matters.

For those wanting to leave a car in Cozumel particularly, this regular trip to the mainland to renew the vehicle sticker can get to be a hassle. Since Customs is required to visually inspect the vehicle, those living and leaving a car in Cozumel have to get their autos over to the mainland via ferry along with all the paperwork, find the nearest Customs office in the appropriate city and keep the Customs sticker renewed.

Are you tired of taking your US car or truck to the mainland to renew the importation sticker to stay legal on the roads of Cozumel, Quintanto Roo and/or Mexico in general?

Why not save the hassle and just legalize that foreign auto for permanent use in Mexico?

We know the process and procedures and can do it for you faster than you can imagine! Plus we have drivers available throughout Mexico to facilitate the logistics of moving vehicles to nearby customs offices for the purpose of legalization. Just complete the basic information below concerning the auto you would like to legalize in Mexico and we can provide you a quote in no time!

Thank you so much for all your help! We took you tour to Chitchen-Itza in june. We were the couple that missed the tour because we did not get the wake up call. Because you went the extra mile with us (by finding us a tour operator that would honor our voucher the next day) I am extremely greatful. it certainly made our vacation. I will DEFINITELY recommend your website COZUMELINSIDER to anybody who will listen. thanks again! F. Escobar ~ not given

Hello my name is Brent C. and I did the Turtle Observation & Release on June 27th. I can honestly not put into words how great and breathtaking the whole experience was! it has always been a dream of mine to watch turtles nest up close and personal but you guys topped that dream and did even better! I almost cried tears of joy when i found out I got to get up close and help remove the turtle eggs as she was laying them! I plan on becoming a marine biologist one day and this whole experience has pushed me farther into my passion for marine biology! I can not say thank you enough! Also cant forget the helpful crew of young men and women that helped us along the night and where ever so kind! Here is a picture of the green sea turtle I named April after she had laid her eggs! Thanks and God Bless Brent C ~ USA

Less than an hour ago, I booked a dolphin swim package through your website. You have already confirmed my order with exactly what we wanted! I was really in a panic because when I tried to book directly through the Dolphin website, they said there was nothing available. I had read great things about your company on the on one of the popular message boards. I have to agree they are true! Thanks so much for your prompt service! I know this experience will be a great memory for my kids! L. Walker ~ Crosby, TX

Sherri ~ WOW!!! We just returned from our cruise! What a wonderful time we had!! Your COZUMELINSIDER.com bookings for our Dolphin snorkel adventure and Sea Trek were the highlight of the cruise. They were easy and saved us about half the cost of booking through the cruise line. We simply hopped into a cab and spent the day at the Park (we could have spent a week there.) They were even able to work us into the Sea Trek early. All the people were friendly, helpful and overall just treated us great. While we were standing around waiting a short little man came up and ask if we wanted a snorkel tour. I instantly remembered what you had said and looked at his name tag. It was Mario! His tour was fantastic! If you see him ask him if he remembers Señor Ed and his family (he never caught that my name was Ted, but that’s okay!) I had a waterproof digital camera and he snapped lots of pictures of us. We had a wonderful time and much of it was thanks to you, your website and staff!

I know you probably get lots of pictures but I had to send you three. Look at the smiles on my boy’s faces. That says it all! Thank you so much for all your help and advice. We can’t wait to return. Your website is the first place we will stop! I wish we could have met in person. We will next time! T. Mahler Family ~ Howe ,TX

It is very cold here, it snowed last night. Welcome home to us right?! Just wanted to send an email thanking you for making our experience the best ever in sunny Cozumel. We wanted to let you know that the day we spent at your PalMar Beach Club we had your homemade tamales, (which are my favorite, by the way!) and they were excellent. Also we think that you have very good employees, Juan (there at the beach club/your house) we especially appreciated him, he treated us very well and we just wanted you to know that. Thanks again for the ride to the ferry, we made the 10:00! Also we were very thankful for your advice to stay there in Playa. We were able to get a room and just enjoy our last day on the beach which is what I really wanted. We were within walking distance from the bus that took us to the airport the next morning so it was all very convenient. You were very helpful and we will definately recommend your villas to anyone going there in the future. K & J Gilbert ~ Unknown
