Matamoros, Mexico Shopping

Matamoros - Located some 30 minutes from South Padre Island, this charming Mexican village is a favorite destination with sightseers and shoppers. The town's markets are excellent places to find deals on everything from silver and leather to pottery and handmade jewelry, and bartering for better prices is quite commonplace.
As evening approaches, crowds get distinctly younger, and cars full of college-aged kids come to take advantage of the lower drinking age, cheap prices on food and spirits, and a vibrant nightlife scene.
For a day trip to Matamoros from the U.S., you will be required to show a passport, proof of citizenship or obtain a visa.
At the border, parking is $5-$6 and a taxi ride is $6-$8. There are also shuttle buses for free or you can walk in (20 mins).
