Okay,

When I come out for the CHARGERS/giants game, I'm wondering if I should checkout Tijuana. I was there once back in 1990, and thought it was alright, but that was during the day. I'm the kind of guy that wants to see it at night.

Just dont go in the same bar that Barret Robbins did, the Tequillia in there is pretty cheap, and makes you do some crazy things.

Otherwise, I am sure you will have a great time.

I've been going down to Baja since I was 5 (27 years). TJ is NOT exactly a destination worth visiting IMHO. However, if you head just a little further south (20 min), Rosarito, though rapidly declining is still ok and better still is a visit to Puerto Nuevo (10 min more) for pacific lobsters (albeit imported nowdays), margaritas, and frosty beers by the ocean!

TJ is the worst part of Mexico. Only good thing there is buying a carton of Marlborro Reds for $15.

Yeah, too bad they taste like crap. TJ Is a cesspool. Find somewhere else to go.

You like Puerto Nuevo?

Not enough Parking, and they charge why to much for that.

I've been going long enough I suppose to work it. Most restaurants will let you park in front of their place for free if you are eating there. Almost always find free parking on the street, and the food is simply great. The whole experience is like winding the clock back about 30 years (roughly when I started going to Las Gaviotas all the time. . .)

my brothers bachelor party was at a beach house that was a quarter mile walk from puerto nuevo it was awesome.

the best tacos i had down in mexico were in baja malibu though, at a little restaurant with a stand outside of it right when you get in. thats definately one of the nicer places as well.

Honestly bro, just be very careful if you do decide to head down there!!! Whatever you do, do not drive down there...espec with a rental car. Spend the money to take a cab. Don't do anything stupid (like pissing in the alley) either. You don't want to give the cops a reason to take your $$ or your butt to jail.

Yo dont want to go there. Its trashy and smog plus lots of traffic.

Go to ROSARITO its kinda close to TJ. if you stay on the main road you go near the beach and there is lots os tourist just walking and looking. go to 'papas and beer'. 9 miles down the road (or more/less, not sure) there are sand dunes where you can ride quads. and if you got a family try going to Fox Studios. I have no clue how much it costs. They have the titanic set there. http://www.liveinbaja.com/about_rosarito.html

Can someone tell me what the Franchise tag is and what it does, please? I tried searching and I cant find nothing.

I say nix the idea of going to TJ. The dynamics of that city have evolved into a quite a dangerous place, for Americans, over the past decade. I discourage visiting relatives all the time. It is filthy and the cops are, as always, very corrupt. If I wanted to face the possibility of being Stupid In Public (i.e. Drunk In Public) I would rather face the long arm of the law on this side of the border, not that side. If you feel you must make a pilgrimage to Mexico then I would take the advice of some of the other posters and bypass TJ for the Rosarito area. Then again, if you live by the "it won't happen to me" attitude - give it a shot. You may very well come away unscathed and have a fun time (depending on what you are actually into) as some of the other posters apparently have. IMHO.

If you decide to go to Tj, take a local (I am a local..well, was). I go there every few weeks or so. It's not THAT bad. Don't make it sound like Beirut! However, you can have a bad time if you think you're going to be "big, bad, ugly american" over there! Just be cool, don't venture into dark alleys, act as if you have some manners & social skills & you'll be cool. Revolution is for the tourists. It can be fun, cheap beer, cheap everything really. Those of us that know the area go to the real clubs. And yes, there are some hot chics there, but you have to know where to go.

Cabs are ok, but don't let them see your cash or they'll try to rip you off by telling you it's more. $5 bucks should be the max...if that! try the Taxi Libre. They have meters in their cabs.

All in all, you're going to another country. Show some respect for it's people, culture & laws! If you do that, you'll have a blast!

Your pal,

One Cool Tijuanense

Speaking of showing respect for culture, people, and laws, I'll be in Japan for 2 weeks starting September 2nd. You should read some of the etiquette standards they have there.
