Maps of Juarez, Mexico
Wednesday, May 13, 2015 by IMM
Ciudad Juraez (in Spanish that means "City of Juarez") is a Mexican border town, lying next to the Texas border. On its own it is a city of about 1.5 million, which makes it the fifth largest city in Mexico. Just across the border in Texas lies El Paso, Texas, and together they form a single metropolitan area - a binational conurbation just like San Diego and Tijuana. That binational urban area has a population of about 2.7 million people.
There is a lot of economic interaction between the two cities, with 23 million border crossings a year. A lot of American businesses have moved across the border into Juarez or have opened branches there. American brands and chain stores are easy to find here. That foreign investment also means that the cost of living is high relative to other parts of Mexico.
Juarez is also sadly known as a center of the Mexican drug trade where drug cartels intimidate the local population. This is obviously because it`s a border town from which drug shipments can be dispatched for the United States.
Here are some maps of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico:
Ciudad Juarez is a great place to visit if you happen to be in Texas and want to try something different. Just stay out of the way of any scary people and avoid any talk about gangs or drugs.
