South Padre Island Stories and Tips

Matamoros, Mexico

Matamoros, Mexico, is only about 45 minutes away from South Padre Island, TX. It is right over the border from Brownsville, TX. We always go there for at least lunch or dinner one of the days of the week when we are in South Padre Island. There are several restaurants that are really cheap right over the border, and there are also the souvenir shops and the pharmacies on the main road into Matamoros.
