Tijuana is known for two main themes . . . shopping and nightlife.
While we will list the "attractions" in or near Tijuana, we should
not loose track of the shopping (there is a separate page for nightlife).
Shopping : Tijuana offers goods from all over Mexico
for sale. However, like any other place, the best deals are found
on the goods made locally. In this case, the best deals in Tijuana
are on leather goods. If you need anything in leather from purses
to pants or motorcycle jackets to back packs . . . the savings alone
may pay for your trip. You will also find some unique gift items,
wall hangings, furniture (and more than I could name here) all for
less than you could buy it in the US.
The Tijuana bull fights are held every other Sunday between May
and October in the El Toreo arena (sometimes held in the arena by
the ocean). Tickets start at $12.00 USD for the cheap seats and go
to over $40.00 USD for a view closer to the action. You can usually
find information about dates and times from the Tijuana
Tourist Office as you enter Tijuana or by calling the arena at:
Blvd. Agua Caliente
between Ave Cuauhtemoc & Ave Diego Rivera
