Nervous about going here, but had never been to Mexico before, so just wanted to try. Made sure to not take any credit cards. Just stayed about 1 hour and spent $20 on variety of cheap stuff as souvenirs. We were very happy to get back in USA!

Do you like to get pulled over by the police every day? Well, that is the reality of tijuana. The police are always out to get you! Even if you are driving normal and don't nothing wrong they hassle you, try to get bribes and threaten to tow your car away. It is not the city for the faint of... More

A half day here is probably ok. it has obviously died alot since the hey-days, and outside of the few block swhich are alive, the shops are boarded-up. Even on the main drag, many small adjacent malls or alleys are deserted. The hustlers working for the shops are not as bad as made out by other reviewers. I have seen... More

Oh my goodness, be careful if you go here. Make sure to negotiate with the shop keepers- they expect it and it's part of the fun. But DO be extra careful with your safety and belongings.

My wife loves the Revo. I can take it or leave it. It is colourful, noisy, full of different aromas (in some cases aroma is a very, very generous word!), full of shopkeepers trying to hook you into their shops and others trying to get you into their bars. It has a lot of restaurants and bars, nightclubs and cafes.... More

The music scene in Tijuana is excellent. The food was great and musicians truly enjoy their craft and it shows

At night Avenida Revolucion is great for people watching. It also has numerous restaurants and drinking establishments. During the day it is good for shopping. This was the first paved road in North America, when prohibition prompted many Americans to visit Tijuana to for legal drinking.

I guessed I'm not the haggling type. I don't like people pressuring me when I shop. This is a pathetic little market with shops that sell the same things and desperate shopkeepers trying to flatter you into buying over priced junk that you don't want or need. I guess just like every other third world country tourist market. I felt... More

We only went down for a couple of hours but that was enough. The people were all friendly enough and we didn't have a bad experience but we couldn't help but feel stressed for our safety. Maybe that's just because it was our first time and can barely speak a word of Spanish. The shop owners can spot a tourist... More
