Lively streets, vibrant colours and traditional Mexican cantinas are calling your name! Escape from San Diego for the afternoon on this tour to Tijuana, the largest city in Baja California.
Tijuana Day Trip Itinerary
Having met your guide at the Santa Fe Train Station, you'll leave San Diego behind for the afternoon. After just half an hour, you'll have reached the United States' border and crossed into Mexico, heading south in the direction of Tijuana.
Welcome to the largest city on the Baja California Peninsula! Arriving in Tijuana, you'll be immersed in the local culture and lively atmosphere as you begin exploring the main street. Along the route, you'll notice that a number of roundabouts are crowned with statues of important historical figures such as Abraham Lincoln.
Your tour will take you to the iconic Tijuana Cultural Centre, which welcomes a million visitors each year and has become one of the city's main tourist attractions, before visiting the emblematic Water Tower, built as a casino as part of the historic Aguas Calientes entertainment centre.
After visiting the old horse racing track, you'll head to Avenida Revolución, Tijuana's tourism hub. Stroll between typical Mexican cantinas, clubs and art galleries, before entering La Placita, a local restaurant where you'll have the opportunity to make your own taco. Mix deliciously spiced meat or vegetables with guacamole, salsa and onion in a tortilla before indulging in the typical delicacy!
Leaving Tijuana behind, you'll cross back over the Mexican border, arriving back at the original meeting point in San Diego for 7 pm.
