“Imagine having a city full of things that no other city had”- Bill Bryson, The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid

Tijuana, Baja California, MX is a border city that captures time and treasure. Even though Tijuana and San Diego are many times considered to be one-in-the-same, Tijuana holds many key locations that embody Mexico and showcase Tijuana as a leading retro-yet-urban city. With time, Tijuana has adapted to fit our every changing modern world while treasuring its original retro style.

For example, you can still find several murals across the city in local and tourist areas. Traditional ice cream shops such as, “Michoacana” are still well distributed across the city where you can enjoy a delicious ice cream cone on a hot summers day. Telephone booths are still visible across the city  and while coins can still be used to operate the phone booths, the city has now moved to rechargeable phone cards while maintaining the original red “TELNOR” logo.

Tijuana is a beautiful city like no other. Explore it. Know it. Love it.
