Border Crossing To Mexico

Jump to last reply

I am planning a road trip from San Diego to Big Bend NP and back, for next spring. Somewhere along the way I would like to set a day aside for a side trip into Mexico, but I’m not sure where to cross. We would like to visit a walkable small town that still has some “charm” to it; we are not interested in a Tijuana style experience.

Looking at the map it would seem to be a choice between crossing from Douglas, AZ. to Agua Prieta, or from Presidio, TX. to Manuel Ojinaga. Does anyone have any experience of these towns, or have any other suggestions?

In particular is the crossing straightforward and hassle free? (We will be travelling on UK passports.) Also any recommended sights to see, restaurant lunch stops, etc?

Thanks for your help, Greybeard
