I'd be reluctant to hang around Juarez these days, although I did spend a day there about 12 years ago and lived to tell the tale.

Otherwise wouldn't worry too much. And while I agree with everyone about situational awareness personally I hang around Nuevo Progreso, Reynosa, and Nuevo Laredo - all border towns - and have no troubles.

The most nervous that I have been when in Nuevo Laredo was when I went to get my hair cut and realized that all the young lookouts were getting their hair styled at the same place that I was at ;)
