Destinations in Mexico, whether via bus from NM or other, are not a safe place to travel at this time.

Travel to Mexico is NOT a good idea....hundreds of people die there every week!! Innocent people just driving down the road have been shot and killed. It is not worth it,,,trust us!

I'm glad this information has been posted. I'll be heading thru El Paso next June and was wondering if it was worth it to cross over the border.

I think we'll plan on spending some time in Mesilla near Las Cruces instead.

Staying out of Juarez and Mexico, is a good idea right now, the crime and violence is real and its a big risk. Juarez is not the Juarez it used to be, the streets are empty, restaurants are closed, and most people try to stay out of the streets as much as possible. Its a very sad situation.

I must agree with previous posts. Unfortunately, Northern Mexico is NOT a SAFE to visit, specifically Juarez. Plus, there isn't much worth seeing anyway. Not worth the rist AT ALL.

Even if it was as safe as El Paso, what do you do in Cd Juarez? I'm from Mexico and Juarez, Tijuana and Laredo are just boarder cities that makes us look bad. The only thing why americans go to Juarez is to buy prescription medicine(was because the law changed) and to buy alcohol and get really drunk (drinking age 18)

There is nothing to see here it's like a Bruce Willis in 3D, but maybe you can even feel the shots.
