Juarez (Spanish:Ciudad Juárez) is a city in the state of Chihuahua, Mexico. It stands on the Rio Grande, across the United States border from El Paso.

Get in

  • Juarez is accessible by Mexican Federal Highway 2 which runs along the United States border and Mexican Federal Highway 45 which heads south to Chihuahua.
  • From the United states, US Highways 62 and 54 end at the Mexican border and are the main international crosings from the United States. Most visitors that come for a single day choose to park on the US side of the border and walk across the bridges as to avoid dealing with the chaotic Juarez traffic and long waits for vehicles reentering the United States.

Get around

There is a public bus system in Juarez; however, it is not very easy to use and is often looked over by tourists. Taxis are abundant; however, most sites of touristic interest in Juarez can be reached by walking. Upoin arrival in Juarez it is likely that most foreigners will received by a plethora of taxi drivers offering to drive them to the market. While the market cannot be seen from the border crossing it is a relitively short walk and a taxi ride would result in an unfairly high fair that is not really necessary to pay.
