Officials on both sides of the border do the best they can with the resources granted by their respective countries. Know that wait times from Mexico to the US are long at rush hours and all weekend. Your best hope: a SENTRI pass.

Clean, safe, low stress pedestrian entries and exits to Mexico and the United States. Check "border wait times" for line wait estimates. Parking lots close by or you can take your auto across at Deconcini.

Don't drive into mexico unless you have special insurance. You can get yourself into a lot of trouble if you get into an accident if you don't . Your US insurance is not going to cover it. I would not recommend driving into Mexico for a day trip. Just walk across. There may be a long line coming back. There... More

For the first time in a few months, they had adequate personnel. No line for cars or pedestrians, and the officers were actually friendly.

I crossed the eastern border on foot. Time into Mexico = 2 minutes. Returning to US at 4:30pm - at least an hour, while being harassed by beggars... The US officials were very courteous, there just aren't enough of them during "Rush Hour". I had a similar experience travelling to Nogales Mexico in a company shuttle - the Mexican officials...

The Mexican border crossing seems mostly interested in allowing tourists into their country. They were very quick and only glanced at my Canadian passport before waving me through the walk-across border. I returned around 4:30pm - only to have to wait over a hour to get back to the US. There was a long line of people (very few were... More

Was it safe? I suppose so. Was it foreign? Distinctly foreign. Would I do it again? Probably not. Am I glad I did it? Yes. We went on a Saturday on a whim. It was a quick drive from Tucson. I wanted to experience a border town for myself and not just rely solely on the media's negativity and bigger-wall... More

I hear now you don't need a passport to re-enter the USA if you have two forms of photo ID. I always take my passport with me just in case. At certain times there are long lines to get back. If you've had dental surgery, you can go to the front of line 'with permission' and 'pass' the line. Also... More

We parked the car on the US side for $4, then walked across the border. Took seconds to cross. We had a lot of fun shopping and negotiating with vendors. We really felt sorry for them as hardly any tourists cross over to shop anymore. Of course, the prices start really high. As a general rule, whatever price they start... More

Better to walk into Mexico than drive because, upon returning to the United States, you will have a very long wait to re-enter
