I live in San Diego and want to start exploring Tijuana and getting to know it better since it's so close. I'm planning on going down and purchasing some touristy souvenirs for friends (beaded necklaces, bracelets, luchador masks etc.) and I'm wondering if anyone has good idea of what I should be paying for them. I know that most of the gear is made en mass somewhere in Mexico and gets to all of the the tourist markets because I have seen the same stuff everywhere.
Also, what are your tips for bartering to get a good price on these items? My experience is that some of these guys are GREAT at overselling you.
