United and American Airlines operate at that Laredo, Texas Airport.

Can i drive my Own Car / Rental Car ? Where can i park my car ?

Few people drove their own cars/ Rental Cars, (Talk to your car Insurance company / Rental Car Company about this). Don’t travel uninformed as if something/ Theft/ Vandalism happens in Mexico to the car, Your car insurance / Rental car Insurance won’t cover if you travel uninformed to them.

Just a note: we got our passports last week on Friday. While coming back to USA, we were stuck in traffic at border crossing for almost 3 hours, And 30 minutes queue for I94, So just be prepared for Friday afternoon traffic.

Mexico driving is bit different from USA. Narrow roads, no speed limits mentioned. Also all traffic signs in Spanish. So if u plan to drive, get familiar with bit of these things.

Costs around 60–90$ for 3 days

Info from candidates :

We drove in our own car in March 2019. We parked it in underground garage in hotel which is pretty safe, We walked around everywhere ie ASC, Consulate, grocery shops etc

Yes, you can park at the border.

We just came back from Neuvo Laredo this Friday(May 2019), we stayed in BW it is near to ASC and VO, we crossed the bridge by walk did not take car, it should be fine to drive as well. Hotel is good but not much veg options

I have used my US credit cards without any issue / Just make sure there is no foreign transaction fee / Inform your credit cards customer care / set up travel notice, so your transactions don’t get rejected.

Stayed at best western plus hotel. ASC right opposite. 2 mins walk.

Consulate is 12 minutes walk. Appointment was at 7.45 am. Security etc took 15 mins. They checked DS160, passports and LCA. Kids birth certificates and marriage certificate required. Also passport with previous visa.

We reached actual interview officer @8.20. Normal questions, where is the office, how long u work for this company, nature of work and so on. He asked my wife when we got married and how did she meet me.

Overall 5 mins talk, rest of time he was doing stuff on his computer. Pretty straight forward. And told us that it’s approved and to come back at 2.15

Friday is 2.15, other days it’s 3.15 pm

There is pharmacy near to ASC where u can get milk etc

Grocery stores H E B and hiper are like 12 mins walk on Reforma road

Hotel location is very good. Note that they don’t have fridge or microwave in the rooms

Most locals, including hotels and restaurants and even USA immigration staff were speaking only Spanish.

USA auto insurance does not apply in Mexico. So u may want to get that covered. Ur USA auto insurance company should be able to help with that

Before booking appointments, check Mexico Consulates holiday calendar. We were lucky to get passports same day as interview, else we would have to wait till Tuesday afternoon to get our passports back

Food as well as lot of things are cheaper than USA. Locals are very friendly and helpful.
