    • Need help and directions

      Nuevo Laredo Feb 25, 2014 at 4:51 PM

      When I crossed INTO Mexico using Bridge 2, I was not able to find the Immigration Office and, while I DID HAVE my car permit and insurance etc (which I got on line and by courier), I did not get a tourist card or a stamp in my passport before ending up on the toll road and well into Mexico. I have been in Mexico for two months and now need to get home.
      I am travelling back that same way INTO Texas via Nuevo Laredo Bridge 2 and need instructions on how to find the place where a) I give back my car sticker, and b) where I tell them my sad tale of woe about not having a tourist card. Can anyone give me clear and concise instructions, PLEASE.
      Is this one and the same place for car and immigration?
      What sort of "fine" should I expect to have to pay to get through the immigration?

      No more soldiers in Nuevo Progreso January 2014?

      Nuevo Progreso Feb 3, 2014 at 6:03 PM

      I heard somewhere that there are no longer armed soldiers in Nuevo Progreso protecting tourists. I remember them from my visit there several years ago but I heard they are gone now and that the town is also much less frequented by visitors because they are afraid of criminals and drug cartels in Mexico. Has anyone visited there recently? Any thoughts?

    • Best way to get from Matamoros to Brownsville late at night

      Matamoros Nov 10, 2013 at 12:05 PM

      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

    • Traveling by bus to Durango

      Nuevo Laredo Nov 4, 2013 at 10:40 AM

      I am trying to find the cheapest, yet safest, way to travel to Durango. Looking at Greyhound, if I took the bus from my town here in the states to Durango I would have to transfer in Nuevo Laredo. My boyfriend told me that this is where he passed through and it is dangerous. Would I be better off paying more and catching a plane rather than taking the bus??

    • How Do I Get From the Border to the Matamoros Airport?

      Matamoros Oct 17, 2013 at 8:12 PM

      My husband is soon to be deported. He will be put across the bridge from Brownsville to Matamoros. We plan to have him fly from Matamoros to TJ where we have some extended family. My husband is not a native Spanish speaker, and he has never lived in Mexico so he is not sure how anything works. I've read in another post that there is a bus station nearby. How close is the bus station (within eyesight) or is there somewhere I can find walking directions? Which buses go to the airport? Are there taxis available? How far of a drive is the airport? Any insights would be appreciated

      Bus from Laredo to Zacatecas

      Nuevo Laredo Jun 29, 2013 at 6:43 PM

      We are flying in to Laredo, Texas, in mid-August at 20:20. Is it practical to catch a bus that night to go to Zacatecas, Mexico (it can be Mexico City)? If it is possible, what is the best way to do it?

      - Go to a bus depot in Laredo, TX, from the Laredo airport by taxi, and find a night bus to go to Zacatecas?
      - Go across the border (how do we get there; taxi or bus?) and get to the bus depot in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, to catch a bus to Zacatecas?
      - I am reading that, in general in Mexico, it is better to catch a bus at a bus depot without a reservation. Does this apply to this plan?
      - If a reservation is recommended, which one should I book and how?

      Thank you very much!

    • Traveling the Tampico-Ciudad Valles Highway/Mexico 70

      Tampico Sep 6, 2012 at 1:47 PM

      Hi, I have an opportunity to travel to a small resort slightly east of Ciudad Valles in 2013. I obviously have some concerns about traveling to Mexico at the moment.

      I did review the travel.state.gov website, but am interested in some more detailed information. We would fly into Tampico and travel by car/van via the Tampico-Ciudad Valles/Mexico 70 Highway to a small resort slightly east of Ciudad Valles.

      My main concern is traveling on the Tampico-Ciudad Valles/Mexico 70 Highway. If you could please provide me with as much detailed information as possible about this specific route, it would be much appreciated. Most of the information I can find is from 2011 or earlier.

      Thank you in advance.

    • Is there any danger in traveling to Tampico and from Tampico to Cd. Valles, SLP?

      Tampico Dec 8, 2010 at 7:19 AM

      I would like to visit a friend in Tampico, and then go from there to Cd. Valles, SLP. My friend in Cd. Valles recently told me that there was danger for them to travel by bus to Cancun because of kidnappings!! Also, there was that 77-year-old rancher who was recently killed by drug cartel people when he didn't vacate his ranch north of Tampico as ordered by them. So Tampico was actually in our TV reports of killings in Mexico!!

      I am wondering of the advisability of my going to Tampico and also to Cd. Valles, if you know where that is.

      Thanks for any advice you can give me.

      Also, I went to the public beach in Tampico many years ago and was very disgusted by how dirty it was. Are there beaches there that are clean, and would they be warm enough to swim in in February? Would there be a nice hotel/resort right on the beach to stay in??? Can you recommend one or two? THANKS!!

    • Safe to drive from GDL through Nouevo Laredo?

      Nuevo Laredo Jun 5, 2010 at 3:43 PM

      As I live in GDL, I have done this drive several times during the past 2 summers. Given the latest security issues and travel warnings against "nonessential" travel, how safe is it, in reality, to drive the bypass around Monterrey to Nuevo Laredo. I am not one to spook easily but I did read somewhere that a person was carjacked on the cuota from Monterrey to Reynosa. I am a female who will be traveling with my 3 dogs in my car with US plates. Naturally, I would plan on going through the area in the afternoon, sometime during the first part of July. I am, however, worried about coming across roadblocks from the Zetas or other criminal groups. I also need to make the return trip at the beginning of August. As it is ideal for me to drive with my dogs, I would like to make the drive if it is safe?

      Anyone living or traveling there (Mont. or N.L) recently have any advice for me?
