Transportation & Maps

 
Flying Into the Area

There are two options if you are traveling from outside the area: flying into San Diego's  Lindbergh International Airport, or directly into Mexico landing at the Tijuana International Airport. The Tijuana airport is a short 4 miles from Dr. Sigler's clinic and may provide additional convenience in travel depending upon your departure city.

From San Diego to Border

Just 20 minutes from San Diego downtown, Lindbergh International Airport, Balboa Park, and local beaches, the town of San Ysidro is the last US stop before crossing the international border into the bustling city of Tijuana, Mexico. San Ysidro boasts the Las Americas outlet shopping mall, with extensive shops, restaurants and parking for those who choose to drive down and then walk across the border for their appointment. Additionally, there is trolley service from San Diego that extends to San Ysidro.

DRIVING DIRECTIONS

Take the 1-5 south or I-805 south.  As you approach the international border, take the 'LAST U.S. EXIT' and turn right onto Camino de la Plaza, then turn left into the Las Americas Outlet mall. Turning left again, park near the McDonald's or Nike factory store to be closer to the border crossing. Park here only for a daytime appointment, not overnight.

 

OVERNIGHT PARKING

For overnight parking, there is paid parking across the street at Border Station Parking. The lot is gated, has a guard and charges $8 per 12 hours Monday-Thursday or $15 per 12 hours, Friday-Sunday.

 

TROLLEY

There are three trolley lines in San Diego: Green, Orange and Blue. The blue line is the only line that travels to and from San Ysidro. Connections can be made downtown at the Santa Fe Depot or at the 12th & Imperial station. See SDMTS for all stops, schedules and information.

 

Crossing into Tijuana

 

WALKING ACROSS THE BORDER

It can be a little confusing to walk across the border as there are a lot of twists and turns, ramps, stairs and just plain distance. However, with the opening of PedWest, the new and improved pedestrian crossing, the waits are at least getting shorter upon your return to the U.S. Wear good walking shoes as you will be walking nearly a mile from your car to the taxi or Uber on the other side. For a map click here.

ON THE OTHER SIDE - TAXIS | UBER

Once you make it though Mexican customs (see below) you will want to take a taxi or Uber to Dr. Sigler's clinic for your appointment. $10 is a sufficient one way fare, including tip.

Show them the address—Diego Rivera 2386, Zona Urbana Rio Tijuana, 22660 Tijuana, BC.  Dr. Sigler's clinic is located on the 5th floor of the CER Hospital.

 

Car Service—Door to Door

A private car service is available to pick you up directly from your hotel or home in San Diego and take you down through the international border to the clinic or surgery facility for Alicia Sigler, MD. Using an express lane through customs that is dedicated to medical services vehicles, the private car service is the most efficient way to cross the border.

 

For consultations, botox or cosmetic filler appointments, car service is available for $75 each way, to any location in San Diego. With vans holding up to 8 persons, this is an excellent option for friends and families traveling down together. To schedule your own service, call Alex to coordinate.

Crossing the Border

 
What you need for customs

 

Have your passport or a valid photo ID ready when entering the border crossing into Mexico. Returning, U.S. citizens must have a valid, unexpired passport or an Enhanced Driver's License to come back across the border. Resident aliens must have a valid green card. Children under the age of 16 can show an original or certified copy of a birth certificate when arriving into the U.S. via land. However, a passport is always the best option when traveling in and out of the U.S. Be sure your passport is valid for at least one month past your travel date and have a blank page for any stamps.

RETURNING TO U.S.

Everything acquired while in Mexico must be declared to customs when returning to the U.S. You may likely have purchased medications at a pharmacia, so declare those and show your prescription(s). Don't bring anything that's restricted back into the U.S. from Tijuana. Check with a border patrol officer if you have any concerns or questions about what's allowed.

Frequently asked questions

舊有基礎建設因歷史建物工程的進行而被拆除


因實施整體外觀及防漏水工程時,需剝除建物表面的裝修。因此不得不拆除原先的館內、外照明、倉儲空間、隔音等基礎設施。




非歷史建物工程項目,因長期缺乏維護而耗損


老屋本來靠著活絡的使用和每年兩次例行年保養維持屋況。但歷經漫長空窗整修,使得一些不在修繕項目的設施,如:樓梯、地坪、結構框架,也產生耗損、鏽蝕的狀況。




需有籌備期、試營運期以逐步恢復穩定租借經營


確保可以安全對外開放租借前,估計至少以三個月進行內部空間整頓、測試新舊軟硬體與配套,期間無收入但仍有管銷人事支出。對外開放後需試營運,依照實際使用情形逐步調整,期間將以折扣價出租場地,於明年農曆年後正常營運前,將會入不敷出。




大環境變遷,小型展演生態面臨衝擊


疫情對藝文產業的打擊,及休館期間因中、小型專業場地缺乏,加上大型場館的成立,製作型態及規模皆伴隨改變,使中、小型展演生態充滿不定性。
