  6. i left ajijic on the 29th of jan. spent night in saltillo then to colombia bridge. spent 64 dollars on tolls including the 28 pesos at the bridge. went thru aguascalientes and bypass around zacatecas. have never seen so many trucks from saltillo to colombia bridge. took 21 minutes to go around the inner western ring road in ags. new overpasses and much improved.
  7. as for the colombia bridge, it is 18 miles up river from nuevo laredo and is in another state, nuevo leon. i do not believe it is in the city limits of nuevo laredo. i cross southbound in nuevo laredo and northbound at the colombia bridge. i also go thru saltillo and on to zacatecas and aguascalientes then guadalajara and i use my US debit card at all but 2 toll booths, they only accept cash,pesos, from the border to lake chapala and at all pemex stations. never had a problem but i NEVER let it out of my sight. i stay with the card at all times. therefore i spend very few pesos on the trip, i

  11. i cross nuevo laredo often south bound and use colombia bridge to go north bound. i would spend the night at the city express on north side of monterrery, go to colombia bridge early, they open at 8am, take care of my business and head south again. zacatecas is a fine city and 8 hours from the border. you wont be very close to nuevo laredo at any time.
