Travel Tips for Ciudad Juárez

The Good and Bad of Juarez Mexico

by lashr1999

The town of Ciudad Juárez is just across the Rio Grande from El Paso Texas. In fact El Paso and Juarez were part of the same town until the 1848 when the treaty of Guadalope Hidalgo split the town in two along the Rio Grande.

"The good"

One if the best things about heading across the border is that there is some of the best Mexican food there. You will not find that cheap jarred processed guacamole here. The tacos, nachos and mole are a treat to your taste buds. Mariachi bands may play whlie you eat.

Cheap Mexican beer, ‘Cerbeza mexicana’ and places to party are other reasons to visit.

If shopping is your thing there are some bargains to be had. If you are a good bargainer you can get things quite cheaply. Knowledge of Spanish helps, in fact if you are of Spanish descent you will probably get a better price.

It is a place where you can catch Lucha libre or Mexican wrestling! It is too bad they only have shows on Sunday.

"The bad"

There are not many tourist attractions, the city itself is smoggy. Once you travel across the bridge you see many homeless who ask you for money.

It is one of the places where maquiladoras or sweat shops that NAFTA helped to create thrive. At these sites women workers are harassed since they have no protection, some workers have even been murdered. See http://www.motherjones.com/news/mustreads/1999/07/070599.html

It is the site where over 300 Mexican women were killed or have disappeared and the people in charge were slow to act http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/895598023?ltl=1130606425

All in all would I visit it again? The answer would be yes, but I would recommend traveling with friends.
