Amigos del Artes is located right where the icon arch of Tijuana is. Good place to get there to see some performance and some Mexican souvenir mainly serving American tourists. A couple nice restaurants in the area too.

This litlle area I think is also called Plaza De Mariachis. This little area is near the Tijuana Arch. Lots of different shops and bars. We spent some time at a Transvestite bar. A little raunchy but it was fun. And drinks were cheap.

Lots of things to see and buy. There is a strip near by that is filed with restaurants and bars. Many stores sell things such as jewelry, clothes and trinkets. You can also get a legitimate mariachi serenade while you eat.
