    • DRIVING SAFETY

      Nuevo Laredo Nov 14, 2016 at 7:44 AM

      We are Americans thinking of driving to San Miguel de Allende entering through Reynosa or Laredo.
      My reading of travelers warnings has me TERRIFIED. Are we insane to attempt doing this right now?
      We would be sticking to major highways & have been told to only drive in the day light but we do not currently speak fluent Spanish. ADVICE PLEASE!!!

    • Traveling to Nuevo Laredo Mexico

      Nuevo Laredo Sep 12, 2016 at 6:37 PM

      My question is: Do Americans have to go through U.S. Immigration or Homeland Security before walking over the bridge into Nuevo Laredo Mexico? Also is it as simple as when approaching the Mexico side to just pay the machine, receive a ticket go on through? Can I just Hop on a bus to Mexico City after site seeing then go to the airport get whatever is required as far as a tourist card or visa and fly out?

      Crossing at Nuevo Laredo then driving to Saltillo with no passport?

      Nuevo Laredo May 12, 2016 at 1:20 AM

      First let me say, I'm currently scrambling to get a expedited passport. That being said, I'm planning on crossing the border at Nuevo Laredo in a little over three weeks with my girlfriend who lives in Saltillo. It's about three and a half hours south from NL. She's picking me up in Laredo TX, and we are crossing into Mexico in her car. I would just wait on the passport, but it's a big event on a certain day. If it doesn't come in time... Can I even get in with no passport? Will it be easier because of the car being registered in Mexico? What happens if I get caught in or on the way to Saltillo with no passport? I'll be there a week. I will have my license and birth certificate worse come to worse. I'm stressing about the potentially not having a passport thing..Thanks for any advice

      2. same route but using hwy 57 - San Luis Potosi
      3. hwy 40 durang0- mazatlan-pv
      we are not planning on sightseeing on the way down and want the fastest route. we do not mind paying tolls. which way would you go and why? what town would you stop at for the one overnight we plan to make. About how many hours to get to that first stop from the border?
      Thanks in advance for your help!

    • First time trip outside the United States.

      Nuevo Laredo Jan 23, 2016 at 9:49 AM

      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.

      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,

    • Walking from International Bridge to Bus station in Nuevo Laredo?

      Nuevo Laredo Sep 15, 2014 at 4:57 AM

      Hi all,

      I was wondering what the current state of affairs is in N.L.? I will be entering Mexico in the beginning of October and will be taking a bus from N.L. to Guadalajara, and will be in N.L. on a Monday in the late morning and early afternoon. I will be wearing a large backpack and have decent Spanish, not fluent but nicely conversational. If the city is fairly safe at this current time I think it would be fun to walk from the border to Nueva Central de Autobuses located here:

      google.com/maps/place/Nueva+...

      I'm white as they come but am 6 feet tall and muscular, if that makes any difference.

      Is it safe enough to walk at the time I will be in the city? The only post I've seen talking about this is from 2008 and I think it's for a different bus station maybe. Will also be stopping for lunch along the way, probably at a local Taqueria.

      Looking forward to your replies. Thanks!
