From your San Diego serviced apartment you can visit the beach and desert. But after you’ve been there, done that: What about Tijuana? Tijuana, as you may remember has not always been one of the most visitor-friendly destinations in Mexico. Specifically there was a huge rise in gang related crimes. Drugs and human trafficking were rampant. Not a great place to take the family for a day. Fortunately for everyone, since a crackdown on gangs in Tijuana crime rates have gone down exponentially and it is now one of the most visited cross border cities in the world! Although it doesn’t have a spotless record Tijuana is now a very safe and hospitable place to to visit for a day. And get some extra sun while you’re at it (San Diego is prone to fog and the low clouds of ‘June gloom’)!
