from Tijuana Up & Down City Tour
Tijuana is a very young city, being just 122 years old, but even being young it is already the biggest city on the Baja California Peninsula. We'll begin our tour as we cross into Mexico and enter a world of contrasts. To kick things off we'll travel into the main street known for its historic roundabouts each with a statue of a hero, like Abraham Lincoln, Cuauhtémoc the Aztec King and many more. We’ll pass by the famous Cultural Center which is the main center of regional arts and has over 1 million visitors a year as one of the main tourist attractions in Tijuana.
Next, we will visit the demolished Tijuana Bullring, the Tijuana Water Tower, and the Hipódromo. We’ll end our tour on the Avenida Revolución, which in the past was an important center of economic development and known as the center of prohibited entertainment for people from the US, for some shopping and bargaining. Currently, it is the center of tourist activity in Tijuana with its many cantinas, table dance bars, dance clubs and art galleries.
But before you go to the many little shops, you will experience the Tijuana tradition of making your own taco at the lovely restaurant La Placita. The taco is made with a delicious tortilla filled with meat, chicken or veggies, and all the trimmings such as guacamole, salsa, cilantro, and onion. You'll have the time of your life. Come and fall in love with Mexico!
