The street is full of stores selling various tourist times, coffee shops, restaurants nite clubs bars, etc. Yes the locals will solicit you to come into their business. they depend on tourist and need business. I guess some might be offended to ask to try this or check out that, they mean no harm and if they don't pitch the... More

Was on business and got a tour from one of locals. Use caution in this area, some locals will not visit this area at night due to the presents of local drug cartels so if your an out of towner be careful. During the day it's full of colorful people and very tourist freindly. Lots of police present. Look for... More

The best part of strolling down Avenida Revolucion is that you never know what's going to happen. Like on all of my trips to Tijuana, I make it a priority to spend some time walking up an down the stret here. Even if I have no intentions on buying souvenirs or anything, I just really like strolling and the people... More

Never seen this street in the light of day, so can't comment on that. At night there are several bars and clubs. Usually populated by young US kids under 21 or older creeps who just want to go boozin' and whorin'. If either of these describe you, this place should suit your needs. Not a place for families but for... More

My friends really wanted to take a trip south of the border while we were in San Diego. This place is a dump. There's no other way to put it. Avenida Revolucion is probably the safest place I was in the city, outside of the gate that brings you back to America, but I still felt unsafe. Some of the... More

I went to Tijuana for the first time two days ago and loved the place. Pretty much everyone I know told me I was crazy for wanting to go there but I heard all the same misinformed garbage about Phnom Penh, Cambodia before I went there back in 2000 and found it to be great as well. The people of... More

Tijuana - just 30 mins from Downtown San Diego is an interesting place to visit if you have valid visa/ passport requirements. We booked a tour via Viator since it was our first time and its a different country, different language. The tour was good takes about 6-7 hours round trip from SD downtown. The streets are fun, happening with... More

Had previously been to Tijuana in 91 & 96 when it was great and spoke to the US Customs Guys about a school hours visit during daytime hours in Sep 2013 despite the travel advisories. Tijuana is a shell of it's former self. Yes, it was a bit scary in parts, but VERY glad we went. In years gone by,... More

I have been here a few times over the years, and decided to bring my 16 year old son. He has never been out of the US and I wanted him to see it. It still is a very interesting place to co, but it is dirty and a little dangerous. The cab drivers and people on the streets are... More

Fun street to wander. Loud, colorful and interesting. Zebra donkeys on every corner. Curious shops with cheap tourist trinkets. Local liquor stores that stock twisted bottles. My only suggestion (and this goes for all of TJ) is bring your own toilet paper, soap and hand sanitizer. Sure for a few pesos you can purchase questionable TP but your own will... More
