Take the Bus in Mexico! That's right. Most people have a vision in their minds of Mexican buses that are dirty and full of very poor country people carrying chickens in cages. Nothing could be further from the truth. Mexican buses are immaculate. They are far more comfortable and cleaner than American bus lines. They have spacious chairs with plenty of room to sleep on overnight rides. They even have first run American movies in English with Spanish subtitles. You can travel by bus from Matamoros or Nuevo Laredo to Mexico City in 12 hours. The bus drivers are extemely friendly. Most speak some English. And they make frequent stops at first class rest areas for snacks and bathroom breaks every 3 hours or so. The price from Matamoros to Mexico City is about $40.00. You'll see a lot of beautiful country on the way. Don't drive in Mexico. Let others do the driving for you.
