Don’t you wish you could experience the terrifying journey of escaping a drug-riddled country afflicted with violence into freedom without the potential of being shot or going to jail? Now you can!
For approximately $20, tourists visiting El Alberto can spend their Saturday night getting a three-hour simulated border-crossing experience, jam-packed with gun-wielding border patrolmen.

People from all over the world have traveled to El Alberto to partake in the Caminata Nocturna, which translates to “Night Walk,” over the last eight years.

The seven and a half mile journey through the 3,000 acre Eco Alberto Park begins with a smuggler warning the would-be immigrants that they will undergo tough conditions, including spiders, snakes, poisonous plants and, of course, ruthless “officials.”

Once dropped off in the wilderness by a pick-up truck, the journey through rough terrain begins.

Critics have said that it is a training camp for potential migrants, but most people agree that it is merely a tourist attraction.
