The Caliente race and sportsbooks in Mexico are a great place to play if your in the So.Cal. region. They also offer on-line gaming with I believe as low as a $30.00 minimum deposit. I was told when I was there today ( I live in Tijuana)that it was easy to set up but I have no first hand knowledge if that is true. If you are ever in the area try and stop in to one of the many different books in T.J. The books are within walking distance of the border in San Ysidro, the first one less than a hundred yards past the border gate. A short walk to the Pueblo Amigo, a shopping and hotel area where there are four different theme based books including a turf club site that will rival vegas for comfort. Everyone speaks english and are very helpful. Don't let the news stories of narco violence scare you off, my city is safe for anyone obeying the law.
