New Mexico Border Crossings

There are only three Mexico border crossings in New Mexico, and all enter the Mexican state of Chihuahua in the western half of the state. If it's important to you to be able to get to the border quickly and get on your way to your Mexico destination, it may be worth your while to know what roads to take (both going north and south), what services are available and how busy the crossing is. Save time by getting the low-down from Mexpro.
