Tijuana is a great experience, especially if you are in San Diego and want to spend a day in a quite different environment. We first had security concerns, but everybody was friendly and polite. We always felt safe and we enjoyed great restaurants and shops and got the chance to have chats with several people. Getting to Tijuana was easy:... More

I hadn't been to Tijuana in 20 years and was eager to revisit. I was impressed! It is clean, the people are friendly and the food is great. The border crossing (into Mexico) is one of the easiest and nicest experience I have had too. YOU should go!

Very nice road, lot of shops, good restaurants, lot of clubs, good night life. At the end there is this square, Plaza Santa Cecilia, by the arch, with the typical great mariachi, many different bands...Beautiful!

There are many shop along revolution that offer a wide range of goods. However most items offered for sale are cheaply made and of low quility. The rule here is you will be quoted a higher price for the item your interested in. If they ask 10.00 most likely you can barter for 4:00 to 6:00. Remember all that is... More

I had a specific reason I had to go to this area, but I wouldn't otherwise recommend it. It is crowded, dirty, and seems somewhat dangerous even during the day.

If you want to learn something about Mexico, and enjoy your visit, this is definitely not the place to come. The best restaurants left for other areas (Colonia Aviacion, the Zona Rio) a long time ago, so did the better stores. What is left is a cheap, not very well maintained version of its former self. If you like studying... More

For eleven years, my wife and family and I enjoyed San Diego . . . beginning in June, 1970! And learning how to bargain in Tijuana on Agenda Revolution is a HUGE reason! And I didn't learn by observing my close friend who was a native of San Diego. When he first walked off from a "deal" . . .... More

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!
