Long street where you can find lots of places to eat, trinkets, and friendly people. I did not see many tourists there and a great police presence (is it good or bad?). Despite the security concerns and the US government advisory, I felt safe there during daylight hours. I would not recommend the area at night and, above all, not... More

Not the Tijuana i remember, but it has been 25 years. After walking across the border we took a taxi for $5 to Revolution Avenue. I was suprised by the lack of tourist even for the middle of the day during the summer. Looks like most of the souvener shops have been replaced by drug stores. We walked around for... More

This is a fun day trip if you are a San Diego local! The happening street in TJ is Avenida Revolucion which is approx. 5-10 min. walk once you cross the border. Crossing the border into TJ is fast, but be prepared for a wait upon your return as you will have to go through customs, and don't forget your... More

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
