Is there a parking lot on the US side so you don't have to bring your car over?
Is is necessary to have a passport for entry to Piedras Negras MX from Eagle Pass Tx for a day trip - need help please, we are hoping to travel from Louisiana to Eagle Pass Tx and wanted to go to Piedras Negras to spend the day
I was recently in Piedras Negras for a day of shopping, eating and drinking. I came home quite disappointed. The Zaragoza Mercado was horrible. Very few true Mexican crafts and a lot of t-shirts. Plus it was empty of customers. For quite a while it appeared as if me and the 3 other people I was with were the only people there. On top of all that, the prices were outrageous and the vendors didn't seem at all receptive to bargaining. Several of the vendors also came across as rude. Almost as if they didn't want our business. Very much unlike my past experiences in Nuevo Laredo and Nuevo Progresso. Went across the street to the Moderno for a couple of beers and a plate of nachos. It is very nice, but the lack of windows makes it feel a bit dungeon like. Went further into town to eat at the El Rancho Steakhouse. Not bad, but definitely not great. I wish I would have stayed at Moderno. Lastly, it was Dies y Seis and there was really nothing going on. At least not in the Mercado or the plaza that is down the street from the Mercado. I can't help but feel that I totally missed the boat. Are there any other places in Piedras Negras to shop that would have provided a larger and better variety of items? If so where? At this point, I would never consider going back to Piedras Negras, nor would I recommend it. Should I have gone to Acuna instead????? Keith PS. The Kickapoo Casino just outside of Eagle Pass is fairly lame. Hold'em poker and slots only. No other table games of any type.
