I'm pretty sure I go to the embassy.  Does anyone have more specific information, like how long does it take, cost etc.  More than one trip?

I took the tufusa bus at 7am to Hermosillo and then cab(10 min 60 pesos) to the consulate office cabbies know where its at . Prior i made appointment 30 days in advance at 10:15 so when i arrived it was very easy down the hall to the right 3 windows for American Citizens gave them my passport and a new picture (make sure you have one )I ask when i will be approved they did it in 15 minutes so i felt relieved knowing that.. i then took papers to a check out counter and paid $110 I would have cash in case credit card or debit doesnt go thru just in case . Then to DHL end of block and they said it will be sent to Guymas in approx 3 weeks .Went to DHl gave them my receipt papers received new 10 yr passport You can drive if familiar with Hermosillo but i wasnt They will also give you email to check dhl when it arrives .....good luck

When I renewed a few months ago in Nogales, I opted to get both the card (don't know if they are still available) and the passport booklet. It is easier for me to carry the card around than the booklet. Be advised that you can not fly with the card, only the book. I thought for a few bucks more it was worth having both.

You do need to have an appointment. You can get it online. Plus, all the information about the process will also be online.

I have posted this before but it is worth knowing. If you go, there most likely will be 50 to 75 people waiting inside, many more outside. Do not worry there is a US citizens service area and there will only be one to two people, at the most, in that area. If I remember correctly the number of appointments available daily is very few, two to four only. I remember when I went I thought I would be there all day but everything was taken care of very quickly.

Does anyone have the phone number for the consulate, and is an appointment necessary?

yes, you have to have an appointment. Their number is 01-662-289-3500 It was so much easier to do it online, and have it mailed.

They mailed it to you in Mexico? One of the private courier services?

I cant imagine the US Consulate would trust the Mexican Postal Service with a bonafide passport.

The last time I got one in San Diego, it was offered same day, if your appointment was early, and if you paid double the normal fee, in cash. I believe 2 weeks is normal.

Fedex, DHL and Estafeta all deliver securely in Mexico, if you want it mailed

I had them mail it to my stateside address. Was very fast, and I didn't have to pay extra.

A recent post noted that you cannot bring a purse, briefcase, laptop, or other carry-in packages into the embassy, and they had to be left in the car in the parking lot. The car was broken into and everything inside stolen, so the thieves know you are leaving valuables in your car.....

I will second Ironmans post.Plan ahead for what to do with your 'stuff'.If you go with someone, they can hold it, but if you go alone you will need to travel with the bare minimum. I entered with only cash, plastic, and passport. I had a paperclip on the cash and had to remove and dispose of it.No phones, keys, change, or anything like that.
