The U.S./Mexico border is almost 2,000 miles, a huge open door inviting you to explore all that this fantastic country has to offer! From San Diego and Tijuana in the west to Matamoros and Brownsville in the east, the territory directly along the U.S./Mexico border is rough and inhospitable, with very few urban areas. It's mostly desert, with the usual plant and animal life.
The Rio Grande, which forms the border between Mexico and Texas, empties into the Gulf of Mexico near Brownsville and Matamoros. One of the main attractions along this famous waterway is at El Paso, Texas/Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. To the west, the border spans the vastness of the Chihuahuan and Sonoran deserts, the Colorado River delta and the northernmost tip of the Baja Peninsula before ending in the waves of the Pacific Ocean. The border is served by a total of 23 crossings, and expect to pay a fee when crossing from either side. There are additional fees if you drive into Mexico from the U.S., and you'll need to purchase car insurance to cover you in Mexico. It's best to buy the insurance ahead of time online … you'll save a lot of money!
