dirty, sleazy, the souvenir shops are full of overpriced rubbish and are all exactly the same, the market area looked much nicer but our guide didn't let us shop there. The little cantina where we had lunch was amazing, family run the food was fresh the marguerites awesome and the prices very reasonable. I have no idea why they dye... More

This strip is where most Americans wind up after crossing the border. It's a short walk, not well marked from the border, no visitor info welcome, and a few standing maps that don't tell you where you are. But you can generally follow the Americans and find it. There's not much here but tacky souvenir shops with hawkers, sketchy snack... More

We left early in the morning for a side trip to Tijuana with no misgivings what so ever. Sure I had heard and read about all the trouble that is going on down there but that didn’t deter us. We hoped on the trolley which a few minutes before the border we had to get off and get on buses... More

For tourists accustomed to the old Tijuana (pre-2006), expecting the best of a city to be confined to one street, you will be disappointed. While Revolucion is in the process of restoration and modernization, Tijuana's economy no longer focuses primarily on tourists to sustain itself. Due to the collapse of its tourism sector from 2006-2012, the city has invested in... More

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...
