As tourism rebounds in Mexico, border cities are trying to attract visitors again. Ciudad Juárez is leading the way with the opening of the first visitor information center on the Texas side of the border.
“That’s the message to get across to the U.S.: We’re alive and well, and you can have fun, do business and it will be good,” said Jose Arturo Ramos, executive in charge of projects with the Ciudad Juárez municipal government.
He said “Come back” is the message Juárez wants to send to tourists who crowd the El Paso Saddleblanket Company to buy Southwest souvenirs and gifts.
