DOFO is located in La Mision about 50 minutes south of the border using the toll road. 


We ask that each passenger contribute $15.00 to your driver to cover fuel, insurance, & tolls. Drivers, please arrive with plenty of fuel, Mexican auto insurance (purchase for the day at, & cash to pay the tolls. Drivers are responsible for their passengers' contributions.
