Mexican town cashes in by offering tourists illegal border crossing experience: Thrill-seekers are chased through dark wilderness by gun-wielding 'border patrol agents'
Over the past eight years, travellers from around the globe have trekked to the small town to take part in the Caminata Nocturna.
Participants in the Caminata Nocturna, which translates as 'night walk', go on a challenging trek where they must evade 'immigration officials' and 'border patrol agents' as they flee through rough terrain.
Of course, unlike the millions of migrants who illegally cross into the U.S, the touristsí lives are in no real danger. A worst case scenario here would be a nasty fall.
Nevertheless, as documentary-maker Jamie Meltzer showed in his film La Caminata, the workers give a convincing performance to give curious tourists a relatively genuine experience.
