Tijuana, Mexico

Tijuana (a.k.a. TJ) has always had a reputation of one kind of a sin city. Young American students used to go and party a lot in Tijuana because it's right cross to the border of Mexican side. This is because Mexico has lower age limits for alcohol and it's a lot cheaper than USA. You can basically walk to Tijuana from San Diego, California. Tijuana has always attracted also sex tourists. These days the situation is little bit different. Most of the American tourists are afraid to go to Tijuana anymore because it has become more dangerous. There are some drug wars, muggings and corrupted police officers which makes the situation worse.

Cross this busy US-Mexico international border station and you may think you've crossed into the Wild West. The 21-year-old drinking age is now 18, illegal prostitution is now legalized and zoned in Zona Norte. Remember that Tijuana might be very tricky now days. Anyway if you go with a group with friends or just by yourself it might be a lifetime adventure. One weekend is enough to explore Tijuana. The most important thing is to use common sense and trust no-one - not even the police! If you drink alcohol, remember that the more you get wasted, that increases the risk of getting into trouble.

A marginal zone in Tijuana

Here are some tips you should definitely know before going to Tijuana:

  • Remember to have your passport with you. If you don't like to drive your own car, it's very easy to walk across the border and take a taxi if you are coming from San Diego. You should take a taxi at first to your hotel. Don't carry any valuable shiny jewels or expensive watches with you. Leave your passport in the hotel room's safety box and keep a printed copy of your passport with you all the time. This helps if there will be any problems with the police officers.
  • It's also recommended to leave your credit cards to the hotel's safety box. Just carry a reasonable amount of cash with you. You can pay everything in US Dollars in Tijuana. Don't have too many big dollar bills with you.
  • Remember that some locals don't speak any English.
  • After all these security things are under control, you can start to have some fun!
  • Most of the adult entertainment action happens in Tijuana's Zona Norte which has the famous red-light district called “La Coahuila” in Tijuana.
  • There are unbelievable amazing strip clubs in Tijuana. In some of the strip joints you can take a girl to the back room and have a full service much more cheaper than just few miles away in US side. Some of the Mexican girls are very hot.
  • There are lots of working girls and transsexuals wandering the streets of the red-light zone and you can end up having a full service with them just for 20 US Dollars for a short time.
  • If you take a girl to your hotel room, never ever let her stay the night if you are going to sleep. They will most probably steal all of your valuables while you are sleeping. If this happens, it's very rare that police will do anything about it. Even the hotel owners are not very interested of your problem. It's not nice to go back to the US border without a passport or wallet. Always keep your valuables in the safety box, even if you are inside your hotel room. It takes only few seconds to rob your valuables when you visit the toilet or talking to phone with someone.
  • Many Mexican people think that Tijuana is not a traditional Mexican city. It's just a sketchy border city.
  • Most visitors to Tijuana end up having a fantastic time. Stay sharp if you decide to visit TJ!
