Hi, I have actually been researching the opportunity of crossing the border if we finish up flying to El Paso. I have actually not finalized my plans yet; I may be flying in to Albuquerque instead. However if we execute fly in come El Paso, I have actually read that is not recommended to overcome the border?

Thank friend in development for her input!

Here is the recent U.S. State Department travel Advisory: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/international-travel/International-Travel-Country-Information-Pages/Mexico.html

There are countless sources advising U.S. Citizens no to travel to Mexico, specifically to border towns, because of criminal activities, gunfights, etc. Also though you reportedly are not a U.S. Citizen, I would think the exact same guidance would apply to you. Albuquerque and Santa Fe will offer you much to see and do.

You are watching: How far is el paso from the mexican border

If you execute visit Ciudad Juarez, do so only throughout daylight hours, carry out not wear flashy jewel or show any kind of sign that wealth, perform not even think about driving a car into Mexico, and stay ~ above the key streets. (Personally, I would not go, but I am an extremely conservative around where ns travel.)

Good luck!

There is a guided walking tourism that is led by an El Paso aboriginal that gets very good reviews. I understand nothing around it various other than what I have read on pilgrimage Advisor and also other on heat sites.

I, personally, would certainly not recommend that you perform so in ~ this time; unfortunately, I would not take the risk.

Some taxi motorists have turned down supplies of $500 to people who desire to be brought to the airport there. The is sad, yet I have actually friends who have actually not visited several of their relatives that are living in particular areas for number of years.

My in-laws live in a border city (not El Paso), and when we room there come visit, us haven't gone across the river since 2009. We supplied to go all the time to have lunch, perform some shopping, etc. I would certainly not introduce you walk across, especially due to the fact that you aren't a us citizen, and also you'd have to go v immigration again once you come back in.

Latest news is the the Mexican government is sending troops come the border to try to do the border safer. Over 25,000 murders along the border last year. We live 2 mile from the border and have not gone throughout for years. Earlier this month, the United states slapped its many stringent take trip warnings ~ above the claims of Colima, Michoacan, Sinaloa, Tamaulipas and Guerrero, ranking them as poor as war-ravaged Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq.

I live in Tucson, AZ and also cross the border come Nogales, Mexico and also drive past to Guaymas, Mexico every the time. We have never had any type of problems. Everyone is terrified of going come Mexico, however it's like any other place, simply be smart and aware of her surroundings.

Mexico is a good and vibrant country. I imply you see it but NOT at the border. The U.S. State Department strongly advises versus going come Juarez. You deserve to just as easily see part really great places in Mexico by taking a brief flight indigenous El Paso that are lot safer.

Sadly while i think it's for sure to walk across the border, at least throughout the day, ns don't see lot of a factor to execute so. We use to drive throughout to shop and have a an excellent meal but it's been an ext than a dozen years due to the fact that we last did that. Don't understand any good restaurants in Juarez you deserve to walk so i would remain on the us side.

Recent statistics rank Ciudad Juarez together #20 many dangerous cities. St Louis wherein I live to be ranked #13. I'm much safer in Juarez than in my very own town.
