I am planning to visit Matamoras (near Brownsville Texas)for my visa stamping with my friend during Christmas week. Can someone suggest some good places to visit near Matamoras in Mexico? We plan on driving and want to spend 2-3 days in Mexico. Any tips/info for this trip are greatly appreciated.
You might find more things to do in Monterrey, Mexico. Its about a 5 hour bus ride but since you're driving you can probably make it in about 3.5 or so. Take the 2/2D Highway to the 40/40D Highway. The D stands for toll road which is much nicer and quicker to travel on.
Monterrey is a huge city with many things and very safe as well. Actally was voted the most secure city in Latin America and Mexico for 2005 and one of the two most secure in 2006. Not sure where it lands for 2007-2008!
I'm sure Matamoros will also keep you busy for your duration. In either case, have fun and happy travels.
