Park your car in the U.S. Side, there are 4 big parking lots within walking distance from the international border.
Walk in to México and you will come through a yelow cab depot as you come in.

Before you take any cab, ask the fare first, it is a flat rate, usually no more than $8, try to bargain a lower price, show them a $5 bill and say you have no more, if they don´t bite, keep walking until some cab driver takes your money, maybe you will get lucky, give them the address, and as a reference tell them "take me to Edificio Gallegos" in front of "Soriana Agua Caliente", that is the best reference and description you can give the driver.

We will call a cab for you when you need to return to the U.S., it will take you to the Mexicoach Bus Depot, where you will board "The Red Bus" that will drive you to the U.S. Side of the International Border.

In case you should decide to drive into México;

Once you clear customs, keep to your left and take the lane once again labeled "ZONA CENTRO RIO". You will go on a bridge that will take you to "PASEO DE LOS HEROES". Be careful, when you exit that bridge, make sure to change JUST ONE LANE to your left, otherwise, you can end up taking another bridge that will take to to the beaches.
