I think that demographic is still 'scared' of the border. The Nogales border for some reason is among the safest in the country. For some reason, it has escaped most of the violence of other major border cities. I even feel safe in Nogales MX.

I love the city, the weather is actually pretty good. Too bad it only offers minimum wage employment.

Isn't the border "closed" now?

Not to Nogales. Go to Nogales for street shopping. Go to Los Algodones which is a couple miles past Yuma for dental. It is the dental work capital of the world with literally hundreds of dentists in a few square block area. If you can, wait till summer when the snowbirds are gone. It is wall to wall snowbirds there in winter.

PS: The border is open for essential services which includes dental. You should have a passport. Mexico does not require one but the US does upon return. They will let you back without it, but why hassle with them.

I've learned thru the years, getting dental work, in Tijuana, Algodones and Nogales, your better deals are further away from the border, a block or 2 or 3 or 4. My awesome dentist I once had in Algodones was 3 blocks south of the border. My Dentist in Tijuana was in Centro, in a very unremarkable building.

Mexico dental is a decent option to US extortion, but I found the dental work in Thailand to be a few steps ahead. Laser Dental in Nogales has been recommended.. I recall them charging 50 usd for a cleaning with that water type machine. Had it done in Thailand for less than 20 us. Saw a sign last night in Bangkok, 1250 us for an implant.

When I lived in Tucson, I went to Arizona Dental Clinic in Nogales, MX. It is very close to the border crossing gate. Good cleaning services, which is all I ever had done. They have good customer recommendations for other dental work.

Back to the topic of Nogales, AZ - How is the quality of tap water there or in nearby Rio Rico? I am not sure if they have water from underground sources. I know the Santa Cruz river that flows north from Mexico is polluted, which is why I wonder about the drinking water situation. Rio Rico has a water treatment plant near I-19 that tries to clean up the water flowing in the Santa Cruz River.
