You might have seen our San Diego Travel Guide that we posted not too long ago, but we just couldn't resist adding another guide for you all! Below is the new Tijuana travel guide to our favorite places and activities just across the border. Don’t forget your passport on your next visit!
Tijuana may be San Diego’s neighbor to the south, but you’ll feel a world away after just a quick drive. Having reinvented itself as a foodie heaven, TJ (as the locals call it) shows tourists exactly why the New York Times named it the #8 place to visit in 2017.
Below are some of the Webbege team’s favorite places to hang out south of the border.
If you’re planning on making your day-trip last a longer than you first thought, consider making one of these hotels your destination of choice. Spanning across Tijuana, Valle de Guadalupe, and Tecate, there’s a special place for every trip!

Tijuana is often associated with rowdy partying, but don’t let that mislead you! There is so much more than partying to do in this border town. The Tijuana Cultural Center is famous for its enormous IMAX dome where documentaries immerse the viewer completely. There are also rotating exhibits from around the world, so don’t forget to check out tickets ahead of time. If being surrounded by nature sounds like your perfect day, take a drive towards the beach town of Rosarito and spend the day horseback riding. We recommend All The Pretty Horses of Baja- the trail guides speak English, all the proceeds go towards the care and rescue of horses, and the trails are beautiful! But if you’re a sports fan, a soccer game at the Estadio Caliente will be the highlight of your trip! Friday nights are electrified with fans chanting for the professional soccer team, the Xoloitzcuintles (you can call them the Xolos, pronounced “Cholos”, for short!).

Valle de Guadalupe has become the it-place for wine. Mexicans and Americans alike can be found sipping wine in the gorgeous Valle de Guadalupe. Lovers of Valle often call it Mexico’s Napa Valley!
