We enjoyed our day with a slow walk down revolution avenue. We saw many interesting sites including some less desirable ones. As with anything if you look for good you find good and if you don't you won't. The reconstruction is coming along nicely. It is well policed and we didn't feel threatened at all. Lots of good restaurants. Many... More

A friend and I were walking near the northern end of Revolution Avenue (near the arch) when two police approached asking for ID. It was about 1:00am on the wee hours of Saturday morning. After some initial questions such as where we've been and where were going, he said we’d be subject to a drug search. They asked us to... More

Visited when staying in san Diego - visiting Tijuana should come with a 'stress' warning. Not sure what I was expecting but shocked at what we got and saw....! Very poor run down rough and foreign - even though san diego USA was a stones throw away - its a world away. The contrast between the two couldn't be more... More

I am chagrined to report that downtown TJ is not at all like one would recall pre-9/11. Businesses have been sustained for the most part on Avenida Revolucion, but the extensive malls that used to exist behind the storefronts are pretty much gone. The wonderful Cafe La Especial is no longer in business. Unfortunately, the viable businesses are dominated by... More

Don't take the pedestrian bridge! Scary walk now. Take a cab. Most are $3 or $4. Prepare to have many people trying to sell you things unsolicited. Shop owners try to drag you in and kids and old women walk up to you with trinkets and just stare at you. Not sure if they do it more now, or if... More

I'll let you know about the whole day right here. We crossed the border and walked to the Avenida Revolution. It wasn't that far, and there were 3 of us-one is fluent in Spanish, which is very helpful. Had a fun day in this area. The local people shop there as well, which is what we liked. A street vendor...

At one time this must have been worth seeing, but now it is very sad. As we walked across the border the line to leave Mexico looked three hours long. We walked a deserted street (at noon on a holiday Monday, but maybe it is always that way). We made a pretty quick pace passing shops as we didn't feel... More

Tijuana Centro is pretty interesting. I went for the day with a friend. We parked in a lot on the USA side near jack in the box. We walked across the border, couldn't have been easier. They didn't even check our passports and no line. Once across, go to the path on the left that's lined with little vendors. Take... More
