Piedras Negras is a small city of about 200,000 people at the northern border of the Mexican state of Coahuila, Mexico. It is sister city to Eagle Pass, Texas, just across the Rio Grande, and it is 441 km north of Saltillo, capital city of Coahuila, via Federal Highway 57.
Piedras Negras is known as "La Puerta de Mexico" (Mexico's Door), although many visitors find it to be much less touristy than other border towns, and a visit there seems much more authentically "Mexican." Piedras Negras is the home of the Nacho, a classic Tex-Mex dish of cheeze and tortilla chips. The area surrounding Piedras Negras is ranchland, and also a popular area for hunting game.
