Safety - entering Mexico from US
I'm heading into Mexico from Texas in a couple of days. Anyone have any suggestions as to the best place to cross and the best place to stay - I'm considering Nuevo Laredo, staying that night in Monterrey. Here in the US, all I've been hearing is how dangerous it is to drive into Mexico. Any perspectives/advice?

CAUTION: In a few days you'll fall in love with Mexico...

Nuevo Laredo is a fine border crossing - there are actually 3 bridges to cross. If you want a really mellow crossing, take the Colombia bridge that is about 20 miles west of the city.

El Potrero chico is only a few miles outside of Monterrey. The giant limestone cliffs attract rock climbers from all around the world. Relax in the small town for a few days and get accustomed with life south of the border. Then ride on :scooter:

Have a great journey!
