Is Colonial Juarez a good place to go shopping?

We were thinking about a trip to Mexico for Christmas shopping.

It really doesn't matter how good the shopping is...Juarez is not a safe place to go. There may be good deals available, but the crime rate in that city is prohibitive to a prospective frivolous shopping trip.

Juarez's markets are one of the attractions of the city. You can purchase handcrafts at very low prices however, as a tourist you will have to haggle with the storekeepers.

As of December 2010, Juarez is largely controlled by two warring drug cartels. The police are helpless and the Mexican military troops aren't much better. Thousands have been killed in the crossfire in the marketplaces. Check with the US State Department for Travel Advisories.
