The checkout here in San Jose del Cabo actually went pretty well. When we reserved our slip here at Puerto Los Cabos they said we could clear the country from here and that they would help us. The detail they didn't mention is that it would cost us $250 USD. "Can't we just do it ourselves?" "Sure, but you won't save much money." Not true.
