a taxi is the best way to get around juarez. the taxis in juarez are the best in knowint what is going around town. no one else can tell you what juares is about. make sure you dont trust just any mexican whol thinks he knows juarez. If you are ever unshure use this as a guidline. if a taxi takes you anywhere where you pass a railroad tracks and you are approaching a mountain that says "lea la biblia es la verda" jump out because you are approaching a very bad part of town. but seriously taxis are your only friends they know the territory
The interesting thing is that you only need your driver’s license to get in and out of this part of Mexico. You do not need a passport if your stay is less than 72 hours and you do not travel pass the 18 mile limit. It costs 50c to cross the bridge into Juarez and come back. It takes 4$ to get you car into Juarez and back. I would advise against bringing your car in as you may not be riding it on your return trip;) People without bags are not questioned, if you do have bags you are questioned it seems. English is generally spoken though Spanish is helpful.Taxis are availible. You can use U.S. money. The border area is popular for food, clubs, bars, gambling and shopping.
