The border town of Ciudad Juárez is a major point of entry between the U.S. and central northern Mexico. Although the native population already settled the area for a long time, the town was founded in 1659 by Spanish explorers looking for a way to pass through the southern Rocky Mountains. It was named the Paso del Norte, or North Pass, and it became an important settlement by the Spanish. It has played a significant role in Mexico's history, including being the location of the final battle of the Mexican Revolution. Although this city has a reputation for being one of the most violent in the world, in the past few years there has been a significant reduction in the violent crimes. However, travelers, especially females, should still be careful when visiting.

Location: Across the Rio Grande from El Paso

Across the Rio Grande from El Paso, Texas, lies Ciudad Juárez, which is in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. You can enter the city from the U.S. in four different points: the Bridge of the Americas, Paso del Norte Bridge, Yselta International Bridge, and Stanton Street Bridge. You can arrive by air at the Abraham González International Airport or cross the border to El Paso.

Business: Rising Manufacturing Center in North America

As a border town, there is a significant industry in trade. Additionally, the city has brought in more industrial real estate space than other cities in North America, and is set to expand as a major manufacturing center, alongside El Paso. There are more than 300 assembly plants in the area. The Cibeles Convention Center provides a unique event center that can host up to 5,000 people for a variety of events.

Culture: See the History of the Area from Ancient Settlements to Today

Several downtown buildings are well-persevered examples of historical architecture, including the beautiful Victorian building that houses the city's Historical Museum. It was the location of the peace treaties for Mexico's independence. Another important building is the Guadalupe Mission, built in the early 1600s, which played an important role in the city and country's history, and is the mother of the El Paso Valley Missions.

Activities: Relax, Eat, or Shop Like a Local

If you want to get away from the city and relax, then head to Chamizal Park like many of the locals. There are 800 acres of greenery to enjoy, as well as play areas for children. If you want to experience some authentic Mexican culture and shop for beautiful handmade goods, visit the City Market. You can find a variety of fine art and crafts there, as well as delicious authentic Mexican food.
