I retired to Veracruz & have crossed at Matamoros/Brownsville numerous times but always by car. My problem/question is I am taking a direct bus from Veracruz but they only have one a day & it leaves Veracruz at 6:40 a.m. and arrives in Matamoros at 11:30 p.m. Hate to get a hotel that late & could reserve my extended stay hotel to include day/night I arrive in Matamoros as rate for the week figures out to less than $24 @ day. So even if I got to the hotel at 2:00 a.m. it would be better than paying $40 or more in Matamoros, plus I would still face the same problem the next day getting to my hotel. Do taxi's from Matamoros go into Brownsville? I saw where the approx amount from the Matamoros airport to Brownsville is $35 and the distance from Matamoros bus station would be less. Or would my best bet be to take a taxi to the border & walk across & try & get a Brownsville taxi to my hotel. I am 72 & would rather not walk any further than needed. LOL. PAULETTEJACK@AOL.COM
