Boquillas border crossing in Big Bend NP to reopen in January

Jump to last reply

I know there aren't many people on here that visit Big Bend, but for those that do the border crossing between Big Bend and Boquillas will reopen in late January of 2013. It closed in 2002 and after years of studying and discussing, the federal government finally made it official - as of January 28th, the crossing will reopen legally.

However, the station on the U.S. side is only staffed 8am to 5pm Wednesday - Sunday, so the actual date you can legally re-enter the U.S. is going to be January 30th. Nevertheless, I'm excited because I have a trip planned there during that time frame and just found out the crossing would reopen during my trip. Can't wait.
