  • Crossed in February 2018 as a family with a 12yo. You will need a passport for this crossings and, in fact, for travelling on any road outside Big Bend NP as the border patrols are very strict here and check all your documents. The crossing from US to Mexico is fast. Don’t forget to get a stamp in Boquillas del Carmen, there is a van there. On your way back, your documents will be hand checked by an officer. if you are on a US visa, you need to know that they won’t be able to put a stamp into your passport. you will need to make a call from a landline there and they will complete the process electronically. Overall, an interesting experience, if you like visiting financially struggling neighbourhoods. I felt that providing transportation and food to the tourists was the only source of income for the people on the Mexican side and they drove from far and wide to be here. The food was delicious and cheap. The souvenirs were colourful and photogenic.
  • Highly recommend going here when visiting Big Bend National Park! Don't forget your passport - you will need to scan it at a machine identical to the ones at airports and speak with a park ranger. Smooth process. Bring cash to tip the guys that row you across the Rio Grande and assist you with the donkey ride to boquillas. Fun experiencing rural Mexican culture.
