Tijuana Mini Guide from Rhino

Why Should I Travel to Tijuana?
For many people it’s a safe and easy way to experience the Mexico away from the beaches. Initially having a seedy reputation in the times of prohibition, today it’s a calm business and tourism centre with ever expanding housing estates for those that come to the city to work.

Tijuana temple

It doesn’t have beaches but there  are some good ones within a half hour drive but what it does have is plenty of traditional Hispanic experiences including a bullring which hosts regular bullfights and a small colonial centre but it’s main attraction is the shopping, for crafts, jewellery and alcohol are considerably cheaper than in the US.

How Easy is it to get to Tijuana?
Rather strangely, by plane it’s quite a tricky journey as many American and European travellers fly into San Diego and then cross the border to Tijuana. The international flights into Tijuana Airport come from South American countries and increasingly from Asia as the airlines try to encourage a new and expanding source of tourism. If you insist on flying into Tijuana from Europe or the US you’ll have to change at hubs such as Mexico City and continue from there. There are direct flights into Mexico City from Europe and the UK.

Tijuana Airport

What is Tijuana Airport Like?
It’s an old airport with the ‘new’ terminal built over forty years ago. It’s received cosmetic work over the years with a major upgrade a decade ago and has a good range of facilities. There are ten air bridges to enable you to board and disembark in comfort and a good number of customs posts and check in desks so queues aren’t ever a problem. The airport has a number of shops including a large duty free area selling even cheaper alcohol than that available in the city; fashion and gift shops are also represented including Stanza and Illy. Tequila is a favourite buy in its many forms. If you’re hungry whilst at the airport there’s an extensive food court split over two levels with mainly Mexican food plus snacks. You’ll find a pizza outlet and a Starbucks there too. Wi-Fi is available across the terminal and should you need to conduct banking transactions there’s a branch of HSBC plus several exchange offices.
