Classic tourism street. Back in the day this 10 block avenue use to be packed with people from all over, buying everything under the sun. Crowds are gone now and place has a new feel to it. Now full ob pharmacies, galleries and delicious restaurants like CEASERS. A visit to TJ is not complete without a walk through here. A... More

Sorry for the hard working people of Tijuana but it's really difficult to say something pleasant about that place. If you are of European descent stay away from Tijuana. What am I saying? It doesn't matter what skin color you have, if you made it back, you are lucky. Fifteen years ago there was some life in Tijuana, now, it's... More

Being 6ft+ and blonde, I stuck out like a sore thumb in this place. All the locals were staring and I thought I was going to get robbed at any time. Border crossing takes ages, almost not worth crossing over to this place anymore.

It is almost empty place, no tourist attraction anymore, few open stores, more pharmacies, liquor stores, few restaurants... old taco places are gone.. noisy by night but have to be careful to stay close to main streets.. avoid low class bars and cantiinas

forget the fact that the border crossing from Tijuana back to the U.S.A. takes hours and hours whether by foot or by car. there is nothing exciting or fun about going to Tijuana any more. there are 3 types of business in Tijuana and all are legitimate but there are dozens and dozens of pharmacies and dozens and dozens of...

Avenida Revolucion is the main tourist shopping street of Tijuana. It is recommended you stay in blocks 1 through 10 for safety. It is great for a couple of hours shopping but many shops stock the same or similar items therefore shopping becomes a little boring after a short period. The people are obviously quite poor and will harass you... More

Lots of fun things to look at. We picked up some great souvenirs and had fun talking to the locals. Some can be a bit pushy but it's all part of it. Make sure you take the time to go shopping!

After reading a lot of the reviews I was truly expecting worst of the worst when I visited Avenida Revolucion. I thought it was going to be very dirty, smelly, and extremely noisy. If you are from a quiet suburban town in good ole USA then yeah it might feel like a very daunting place. But if you are a... More
