Up to the 80's it was one of the few attractions in Tijuana. The city grew and now has way too many options. "La Revu" is still favored by some, but you need to be willing to get drunk and able to tolerate a lot of noise.

When you are looking for the perfect souvenir to bring back to friends and family, then Avenida Revolucion is the place to go. You will also find great restaurants and night clubs if you are there for the night, some clubs are 24 hours. Take a picture with a donkey with zebra stripes just to prove to your friends that...

I am a world traveler and have been too many places. There are no sidewalks in this area and I would recommend you to know few basics of Spanish. Else, it would be difficult to enjoy this place. The local shopkeepers were very assertive to visit their store and I did get some fabulous collection from there. I am quite... More

I went to Tijuana just for a quick tourist trip to get to know the reality of the other side of the border. It was a quite impact... I became aware of how most of the people live in the world! this is the real life of the other side! For me, it was rewarding to see that avenue, despite... More

This seems to be the place to write about Tijuana in general, so here goes. It is not the poverty or the dirt that turned me off to this place. I've been to Haiti and Tangiers (and parts of Newark, NJ, for that matter). It was the 3 hour line to get back into the United States! Having a US... More

Ok I put my last review in the wrong place. We are world travelers and believe everything is worth seeing once. To avoid all the long lines we went with a tour that dropped us off here for a few hours. Pushing selling is not unusual to us, try Turkey! We were really on the look out for little pieces... More

I never felt unsafe, but Tijuana is not what it used to be 30 years ago. Many of the shops were boarded up and while there were plenty of people, the crowds are paltry compared to what they used to be. I thought it might have been due to the attention given to cartel violence a few years back, but... More

This was a crazy idea to go over to Tijuana for a short time. It is dirty and poor and not fun to see, but the worst part is the multi-hour wait to get back across the border. Do you want to spend a whole day in line? Don't go! Not worth it!
