Ciudad Juarez, Mexico's fifth largest city, is located on the Mexican (Chihuahua) and American (Texas) border. Only a few minutes from the city of El Paso, Texas, it's a very lively city with lots of entertainment, sporting events and nightlife.

There are a number of colonial churches which are well worth a visit. Directly across from the Main Plaza, Our Lady of Guadelupe has very old paintings and altars. The Cathedral next door, neo-clasical facade of recent construction, is built where the old graveyard used to be.

For a great shopping experience head for the Mercado Tipico or the Mercado Juarez. The Mercado Tipico is a beautiful colorful old city market filled with art-folklore-music and of course mariachis. This very liked tourist spot always has something exciting going on. Don't leave Cd. Juarez visiting it. The Mercado Juarez is the oldest city market. It features curious shopping, groceries shopping, authentic Mexican food and music, played by mariachis and "norteno" groups. This is also a must visit!
