It looks like I have the option just north of Ensenada to take the 1 to TJ or the 3 to Tecate. Clearly I would want to choose the least hassle re-entry point where I can close out the TVIP and begin the journey home.
I'd cross at Tecate. IMHO it is faster and simpler than TJ. Remember to lane split to the front of the line when crossing in Tecate.
