Nuevo Laredo and its sister city of Laredo, Texas, share their borders, and together have turned into one of the most important economic and cultural urban centers in the Mexico-U.S. border, the cities have 3 bridges that connect them making it very easy to move between them. You can cross the border in your car or walk across the bridge, head to your appointment, and once you exit the clinic you can explore the city, maybe head to El Centro Historico, or the regional Zoo, and then head back into the U.S. at dusk.

One of the great things about Nuevo Laredo is how it represents many parts of Mexico’s culture, take the Cultural Center as an example, inside you can find all sorts of exhibits, dance presentations, and even concerts, but it also houses the Museum of Natural History and the Uxmal Archeological Park, which showcases replicas of the most famous sculptures created by Mexico’s original civilizations.

The colorful streets of Nuevo Laredo will surprise you with its classic architecture and plenty of markets to visit and admire; like El Mercado Maclovio where you can find everything from traditional clothing to handicrafts and jewelry; In addition to being one of the best places to sit down and enjoy the local cuisine, like a couple of delicious barbacoa tacos or mouth-watering enchiladas.

In most restaurants and establishments, you can pay with US dollars or Credit/Debit cards. Take into account that if you pay with cash the exchange rate will be lower, we recommend that you visit a foreign exchange agency, a bank or an ATM to turn your currency into Mexican pesos.

Nuevo Laredo is a city like no other, allowing you to experience a large part of Mexico’s culture while staying extremely close to the borderland giving you at the same unparalleled access to the best doctors in the region. Visit and start your Medical Tourism adventure today!
