Getting there & around
Excellent bus service and good roads make traveling around this region very easy. It’s often remote country, so if you’re driving, don’t set out beyond major highways without a full tank of gas.
Most people heading into the region from the US cross at Ciudad Juárez. If your plans don’t include Juárez you can bypass it (and the long waits) by using the hassle-free Santa Teresa crossing (open 6am to 10pm) in New Mexico, 12 miles northwest of downtown El Paso.
