Nuevo Progreso begs tourists to return

Mar 6, 2008 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Brownsville Herald

“The military is there just to give a little more security to the tourist people.”

From the man who paints tourists' names on grains of rice to the teenagers selling pirated DVDs, everyone can sum up business in this tourist-dependent Mexican border town in two words. via The Brownsville Herald

IF you are a real American, you should boycott mexiko and all mexikan goods. These "people" (not sure if human is a good term for mexikans) are our enemy -- never forget that.

so they took your tortillas and your sombreros, but you didnt get hurt or kidnapped.

Thing is, in San Antonio you could have asked the cops for help, and got a fair help. In little towns here on the border in Mexico, you cant rely on the cops for help if something bad happens. In Mexico there is no "real" law.
In the USA, we have real laws, not make them up as you go.

My husband and I went to Nuevo Progreso, MX for dental work. We had about %25,000.00 done for around $4,000.00. We are very satisfied with our dentist,Dr. Cesar Cabrera. His wife is fluent in English. They are very nice people. His office is about 4 blocks down after you cross over the International Bridge. His office is very clean. His English is not bad. We drove over everyday. We stayed in Donna, TX. We drove there from Northeast Mississippi. It cost $2.00 to cross over to Mexico. Then the Mexican's charged us $2.20 to cross back. We parked right in fron of the dental office. We had absolutely no trouble.

Been to Nuevo Progresso many times,Dental work first class, our dentist Dr G, had offices in US too. No trouble, but relatives down there advised against going down this year. Mexico is about to have a revolution, the police are being killed everyday, judges, reporters too. The honest ones get killed or quit. When they threaten your family what would you do, really?

i absolutly love Nuevo Progresso. I stay at Las Flores Inn on Mexico side. Go in, ask for Chewy(owner) or Jerry, they will take excellent care of you.Johannna, lovely lady @ front desk. Have lunch/dinner at Red Snapper. Excellent food as well as the hotel restaurant. Tell Chewy & Dehlia Sherree sent ya. The town is safe but as anywhere whether here in the states or abroad, it is only as you make it. i don't party, etc. and have a blast. Love to shop, been staying there since 1995. No problems. For dental work, Bonoficia Hernandez, ask for Felix who speaks very fluent english and Omar(dentist) will take good care of you. Eat, drink and stay in Mexico. With my entire family.Looking forward to my next trip in a few days and just returned from there. US $ is welcome but haggle, don't pay what vendors 1st ask for merchandise. They will come down off of price to make a sale and keep you as a customer when you return on your next trip.
WE ARE AMERICAN POWER AND WE FIGHT AND WIN THE FIGHT. If he is mexican, cut him up and feed him to the fish in the gulf of mexico homey. Even though I am 73, I can still whip ass when dealing with the crummy mexicans. My daughter is a boxer and she can whip ass well and my other daughter works for the Montgomery County Police in the Wheaton/Glenmont area and that is good. Take all the mexicans, cut them with a saw, steal their money and feed the dead mexicans to the fish in the sea. Hey! The gulf of mexico is just a tad away homey. Even though I am retired and living in a senior citizens home, I can protect the new president and I ain't too old to whip the Mexican's **** and Ann Coulter is a **** and she needs to step down. Our Montgomery County Police and detectives living here in Leisure World here in Silver Spring, Maryland want to have our young college students go to Mexico to clean out their money supplies to use for our education programs. The circuit judges here in the Montgomery Judicial Center in Rockville say that the Mexicans are the ones that commit crimes on our soil so there is a coalition to get revenge on the Mexican cartel for their crimes. We plan to fight the Mexicans and rob them of their cash and weapons to bring justice on them. Ann Coulter may be pretty but my wife is a hell alot pretty than her. Ann Coulter is a sleasy tramp. You dig? Good!

You should go back to school and learn how to spell. It's MEXICO, MEXICAN, MEXICANS! NOT MEXIKANS, MEXIKO OR MEXIKANS!
That doesn't even look right. LMAO
By the way, they are not our enemies. You small minded person.

Nuevo Progreso is probably the only safe place to cross these days. We relocated here 18 yrs ago from Pennsylvania. Many, many things have changed over the years. The prices, the atmosphere and especially the appearance of the Mexican Army in the streets. It is an ominous feeling, but, it is still the safest place to cross if you are seeking dental work or medications. The tourist trade has fallen off, perhaps due to the increase in prices ( especially for Mexican made trinkets) and the obvious rise in prices for medications. The cost to park on the US side has more than doubled and there is a charge to walk across as well as to drive. The streets are more crowded with street vendors since Matamoros and Reynosa have become extremely dangerous for the tourist. This is a NEGATIVE influence on the little town of Progreso. Still....embrace the experience and move about carefully as you would in any strange town. Be aware of your surroundings and do not overimbibe. Enjoy the clubs ( mostly live music ) and the libation, but be sensible. Remember to bring your ID and Passport. Enjoy.
You say "we relocated here" do you actually live in Nuevo Progreso? I am looking for a real estate agent to rent a house in the actual town of Nuevo Progreso. Can you recommend anyone?

Lock'n'load is a real piece of work. Most Mexicans can spell better than that. This is a typical example of what the term "ugly American" means. Belive it Chico, there are people like that out there. The scary thing is they raise thier families that way. What a shame...like him....

Wow!! pretty scary for a 70+ year old. Just imagine. If he feels that way about Mexicans, just think how he feels about Jews, Arabs, and Chinese. Maybe he thinks we should all be German and long for the days of the Third Reich and the concentration camps??? What's sad is at that age, he will die thinking he's right......have pity for him for he knows not a damn thing....
