source of information about Juarez, Mexico, authored by an American who has lived in Juarez among the
people and has never once been compensated by any of the merchants
or institutions featured here or by the Mexican government.
Whatever you may have heard, Juarez, Mexico is full of good
people, interesting attractions, fine restaurants, a fascinating
history, and very impressive shopping values.

Mexico. This site takes you there. With the Juarez

Juarez, Mexico is located just across the
border from El Paso, Texas. Together the two cities
form the one of the largest international border communities

of Chihuahua and the 5th (some say 4th) largest city in all
of Mexico. With a population of almost 2 million people,
this city is no sleepy little border town. Whether you are
looking for good
values, or an exciting
nightlife, you can find it here.

The Juarez Mexico Guide may be the
most balanced source of information about Juarez, Mexico currently
available in the English language. Thousands of people must travel to Juarez, Mexico daily, but reviews of restaurants, hotels, and services are rarely published anywhere. Hopefully, the Juarez, Mexico Guide helps fill the gap.
Most people have probably heard of Juarez in relation to crime. Since 2008 the drug war has cost countless lives in Juarez. Victims tended to be those associated with one faction or another involved in the drug trade, but innocent people have also been killed in crossfires, "being at the wrong place at the wrong time". At the current time, January, 2013, the violence seems to have subsided, but we can make no guarantees that it will not return in the near future.
Each day thousands of people cross the bridge between El Paso, Texas and Juarez, Mexico. There is a great deal of cross-business between the two cities, and the US Consulate in Juarez is the only consulate in Northern Mexico which processes immigration applications for legal entry into the US. If you are one of the people who must go to Juarez, hopefully the guide can help you arrive a little better prepared.
We've tried to cover both the well-known attractions and businesses but also a few of the little out of the places only a frequent visitor
can discover. See not only the 5-star
hotels and finest
restaurants but also some good
value hotels and see the little window in the side of a building
where for as little as $3 a friendly señora will serve you
the same delicious food she serves her children.
The guide will show you everything you need
to know about how to enjoy your stay, everything from the
great things to see to insights into the
