I am going to Matamoros in a couple weeks, and I am trying to figure out which bridge is best if you will use the public transportation. If it matters, I am going to a doctor down past the hospital on Prima Calle
I retired to Veracruz & have crossed at Matamoros/Brownsville numerous times but always by car. My problem/question is I am taking a direct bus from Veracruz but they only have one a day & it leaves Veracruz at 6:40 a.m. and arrives in Matamoros at 11:30 p.m. Hate to get a hotel that late & could reserve my extended stay hotel to include day/night I arrive in Matamoros as rate for the week figures out to less than $24 @ day. So even if I got to the hotel at 2:00 a.m. it would be better than paying $40 or more in Matamoros, plus I would still face the same problem the next day getting to my hotel. Do taxi's from Matamoros go into Brownsville? I saw where the approx amount from the Matamoros airport to Brownsville is $35 and the distance from Matamoros bus station would be less. Or would my best bet be to take a taxi to the border & walk across & try & get a Brownsville taxi to my hotel. I am 72 & would rather not walk any further than needed. LOL. [email]
My husband is soon to be deported. He will be put across the bridge from Brownsville to Matamoros. We plan to have him fly from Matamoros to TJ where we have some extended family. My husband is not a native Spanish speaker, and he has never lived in Mexico so he is not sure how anything works. I've read in another post that there is a bus station nearby. How close is the bus station (within eyesight) or is there somewhere I can find walking directions? Which buses go to the airport? Are there taxis available? How far of a drive is the airport? Any insights would be appreciated
