Mercado Maclovio Herrera

Reviewed By OBXfan1964

I went here with a group during the day while passing through Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. We were looking for authentic Mexican items to buy for family/friends. The variety is extensive. There are great shops for hats, silver, trinkets, etc. Likewise, there are plenty of shops offering the standard tourist items. I was very pleased with the purchase of some silver jewelry and a few other items (hat and wallet). I can say there is a lot of room for bargaining with the shop owner. Don't be afraid to walk away and come back later. This can garner some real deals -- prices seem to drop if you start walking toward the door. But don't give into the pressure. And trust your "gut feeling" about walking into the various shops. If the shop is clean, well-lit, people milling around, go in. If it is dirty, in the shadows with no one around -- I wouldn't enter the place. This is a very large complex of street shops -- two stories in many places. Be careful in that you can certainly get into some areas or shops that seem a bit seedy, off the beaten path. Remember, you're in Mexico and try to stay primarily with the crowds to be safe.

Zoologico de Nuevo Laredo

Reviewed By F B - Houston, Texas

So, I honestly thought there was nothing to do in this town but it turns out the Nuevo Laredo Zoo is full of surprises. Definitely worth going with the kids, the Zoo has been renewed recently and the zoo team seems to be doing a really good job taking care of the animals. One really cool thing to do here is to purchase a bag of food for the animals, the bag is labeled as to what to give each animal and it has different things like celery and other veggies, you can feed the Giraffe! I had so much fun feeding the giraffe with my mouth, and giving some celery to the Alpacas. We also took a trip around new year and they gave the animals some presents, stimulate it was cool to see them trying to open a box with goodies, specially the lions.

Located in a lively Mexican border town, this main "strip" is filled with tourist shops and restaurants, most taking American dollars.

Drove over from San Antonio. Parked at Laredo then walked across the bridge. Lots of souvenirs from tshirts to paintings. My kids loved the fake switchblades. Mom picked out a beautiful blanket. Places to sit & rest were appreciated. I found a colorful painted parrot to hang on my porch

This is a great street for shopping. Don't forget to bargain. It's almost fully expected in the border towns. I love the cultures and the people.

Boliche de Nuevo Laredo

Reviewed By Cris T

Es mejor ir entre semana para alcanzar mesa con juego, ya que el lugar tiene pocas líneas de boliche. En lo personal me gustó la comida...los nachos con carne y las hamburguesas. Las bebidas también saben buenas. Se que también pasan eventos de PPV en las pantallas grandes que tienen ahi. Con 600 pesos juega tu familia y? o amigos.
