  • How safe is traveling to Mexico city these days for American tourists?

    Best answer: So many ignorant answers! The problems with the drug cartels are along the border- because the US is the biggest market for them. There are problems in Mexico City, but most don't concern tourists. It's an amazing city. Follow some simple precautions- take taxis from the official taxi stands for example- and you'll be safer than you are in most US cities. I've been in both Mexico City and Moscow, and I was given many more warnings and precautions to take in Moscow. Central Mexico is really lovely- it's a shame more people from the US don't visit because they can't tell the difference between Tijuana and the rest of the country. 
    Just BTW, Saudi Arabia is one of the safest places on the planet. I know three Americans living there now who are treated very well, and there is almost no theft or violent crime there. I wish people wouldn't answer questions on here when they don't know what they are talking about!

  • Can an American just walk across the border?

    Best answer: Yes, you need a passport as you are travelling from one country to another.

    If a guard sees you attempting to cross the border then they are supposed to stop you, although they are more focussed on preventing travel in the opposite direction. In theory you could walk across in an unfenced area without encountering a guard but this would usually involve a very long trek through the wilderness.

  • Why are houses, streets and buildings so much nicer on the U.S side of the border with Mexico?

    Best answer: There are generally better rules and regulations here in the US compared to Mexico when it comes to buildings and houses.

    I was in Mexico last month and I'd say the biggest issue for road repairs and maintenance is a "lack" of money. There is money, but it often goes to the wrong people/places.
    Semi trucks are overloaded way beyond what they're meant to support which adds extra wear and tear to the already bad roads. Some roads are cheaply repaired and start falling apart soon after they're "repaired".
    My uncles from my dad's side of the family are truckers and they all pretty much say that they regularly drive with overloaded trucks.

    My grandfather mostly built the house that my mom, aunts, and uncles grew up in some 40+ years ago. However, he really didn't have any regard for design. The house is large and roomy inside, but not particularly well built. There are uneven parts on the floor, poor paint job, etc. I'm pretty sure that they have building codes and requirements for home construction, but I don't think they're very well enforced.

    There's a lot of corruption in Mexico. The Federal Police (Policia Federal or Federales), are notorious being easy to bribe. It isn't uncommon for one of them to stop you for no reason and give you some BS explanation. He is expecting a mordida (bribe) to let you go. Sometimes, they do have a legitimate reason for pulling you over, but again, a bribe can usually set you free.

    With all that being said, Mexico has a lot of really beautiful and interesting places. It has a lot of rich and fascinating culture, history, traditions, towns, cities, villages, landscapes, etc. I went to San Miguel de Allende almost a month ago and it was really cool. I also very much enjoy the food there, specifically the street food. Some of the best food I've ever had was from a small and humble shack on the side of a road. I have a cousin who sells dinner outside of his house. Him and his wife make very good tacos, enchiladas, etc.

  • Is Mexico really that bad to where people cross miles to come to America?

    Best answer: Mexico is a lovely country- if you have money. That's why thousands of people from the US retire to Mexico- it's got a great climate, good food, and inexpensive housing. But there are few job opportunities for poor people with little education. Mexico has been investing in education, so the number of people trying to leave Mexico has declined dramatically. Most of the asylum seekers now are from Honduras and Guatamala, countries that have been torn by government corruption and crime.
