Tijuana is a huge Baja California tourist trap just across the Mexican border from San Diego, and while it is known for overpriced tacky souvenirs and seedy bars, this vibrant Mexican city offers quality entertainment and accommodations to millions of tourists every year. While the city is on the coast, it's not a beach resort area, and most people visit this destination for its cultural and historical attractions.

- Zona Norte "Red Light District"

Tijuana is warm and pleasant year round, with more rain in the late fall and winter months. Typical highs for May through November are 23-26°C, while the rest of the year enjoys highs around 20°C. Low temperatures range from 6-9°C from November to March and 13-17°C from April through October.
Getting There & Around
You can fly into Tijuana International Airport, which is very close to several US-Mexico border crossings. If you drive, you can use I-5 or I-805 to the border, where you will wait in line for security inspections. Mexicoach tour buses offer cheap fares to the city from California as well.
You can walk to a lot of the attractions in this locale or take a cheap cab. Yellow cab fares are negotiated before the ride, while the red and white cabs use a meter.
