    • Dress Shop

      Hello! If you are in Nuevo Laredo, do you know of a shop close to the border (tourist) that has exquisite dresses made by hand by a local lady (not the historical gowns) the dresses are mostly white with embroidered flowers--I know sounds like every dress in Mexico-- these look like cotton/silk,

      I am planning to take my 7 year old daughter to see her father. We are going to meet up and stay at a hotel in Nuevo Laredo. I have various questions whst have gotten mixed answers based on people I jave asked. So I just decided to ask here. I will number the questions. Sorry if it's a lot, but I am very nervous and want to know what I'm getting myself into.

      1. What are the safest hotels one can recommend and can I reserve them online with a debit/credit card in USD?

      2. What is the best/safest way to cross if we plan to cross from Laredo, Texas?

      3. We only plan to be there Friday-Sunday. I have heard we DO NOT need passports, that IDs and birth certificates would be okay because the new IDs have a chip in them that accesses all biographical information, how true is this?

      4.We are going to drive over in our vehicle. Do we need a permit to cross the car into Mexico? I heard that if we don't go any further than 16-18 miles past the boarder we should be fine... Not sure how true this is?

      5. What are some essential items I must take in case of any emergency?

      6. Can I take our own snacks and bottled water over the boarder?

      7. How bad is crime in Nuevo Laredo? I am most terrified of this part.. What are some info that I should know while I'm there?

      8. What should I avoid while there?

      9. How do pesos work and how do I understand them?

      10. Only going for 3 days, how much money should I take? And will my debit card work over there?

      Sorry if some questions are dumb, this is my first time ever, so I want to be prepared.
