The Tijuana Airport is called General Abelardo L. Rodríguez International Airport (TIJ) and is one of the busiest airports in Mexico. You can arrive at the airport by shuttle, bus, or taxi.
Airport Taxis - You can take a to the airport, but you will need to by a ticket for a ride from an approved taxi service from the airport. Mexican law prohibits random taxis picking up passengers at the airport. Though quite a bit more expensive, the system is far more orderly and secure than the alternative.
For the most part, Taxis in Mexico are cheap and efficient, however there are pirate taxis that circulate. While not necessarily dangerous, such taxis are not licensed to operate so if there is a problem, passages will have little recourse. In as much, it's best to get a taxi from a taxi stand whenever possible and look for the tell-tail signs that the taxi is licensed such as large ID numbers printed on the outside or the cab, designated colors, and a special driver ID displayed on the inside.
