Baja California


Baja California Comments

Cabo San Lucas is the only place in all of Mexico that I did not enjoy; I think it's because there were too many wealthy, entitled tourists there (the locals were not their usual friendly, festive selves)!
Rosarito is an awesome place to visit. Things have really turned around in a very short time. The sales people are a bit pushy, but what can you expect from a town that relies chiefly on tourists to survive? The food at the restaurants are great. The police are trying hard to keep the drugs off the streets. It is a town like any other town -- it has its share of ups and downs, but all in all it is a great place to visit, and maybe even to live in. I would live there! I love it there.
Rosarito sucks! Everybody is after your money. Waiters don´t even say thank you when tip them. Police will hunt tourists, asking for bribes for no reason -- even the possession of rolling papers can get you in jail. This city is a nightmare -- the only city that is worse is Tijuana, don´t get me started!
If you like to eat out (in good places) there's a section in Tijuana called "zona gastronomica" where all the well known restaurants are situated from Argentinian food (cheripan) to Japanese (negai) to Italian (saberios) and Mexican (la querencia), by the way these restaurants offer great drinks too and they are very "chic."
Yeah, it's a great city in Mexico! Here you can visit a lot of places if you love nightlife and cultural life, it's a city that gives a special touch for all tourists. I would invite all tourists from the world to pass a day in Tijuana.
I've been to Tijuana all by myself and I'm a single female. I went during the day and pretty much stayed to the areas deemed "safe" by the advice of San Diego Tourism and US Navy recommended areas. I had a great time! I was serenaded by a Mariachi band and drank some amazing margarita's. I have traveled all over alone so you can take a tour bus if it feels safer. I hope to eventually retire to Mexico if the drug cartel problem is contained. You can live there for real cheap! ¡Viva México!
