Very Small Border Crossing Between the U.S. and Mexico May 26, 2017
The tiny town of Boquillas was established on the Mexican side of the Rio Grande as a mining town. By the 1930s the mines were not producing enough to remain profitable; but there came a plan for an international park on both sides of the river. These plans never quite reached the grandiose view of the original concept; but there is a very small border crossing here. There is no road but you can walk down a short trail to the river and someone from Boquillas will row you across the river in a small rowboat for $5. You can cross on foot but that is not recommended due to sudden drop offs and sometimes treacherous currents. You will have to go through customs and border control so make sure you have the proper documentation for crossing the border and do not take prohibited items into Mexico or back into the United States.

My 2009 Charger R/T still runs great with a bit over 183,000 miles on it. Sorry your visit was not more enjoyable.

I took the 'back' road down here, along the river.. That's where my old CJ broke down. Ufff.... talk about isolated. I waited for 5 hours for the sun do get a little lower, then had to walk 8 miles for help in 110F. Glad your adventure was a little more comfortable!
