Tijuana is the largest city in the state of Baja California, Mexico. Tijuana is also the most northerly city in Latin America. It is known as the corner of Mexico and consequently of Latin America. The city is bordered to the north by San Diego County, California, United States. Tijuana is the Mexican border town with every virtue and vice that this implies. More than 36 million people cross the border to Tijuana Mexico every year, the vast majority of them staying only a few hours. It could be said with some justification that Tijuana is the "World's Most Visited City." There's no shortage of reasonable Tijuana hotels, although as you'd expect, most things are far more expensive than they are further south. Above all Tijuana Mexico is geared towards dealing with hordes of day-trippers, which means hundreds of tacky souvenir stands, cheap doctors, dentists and auto-repair shops, and countless bars and restaurants, pricey by Mexican standards but cheaper than anything you'll find in San Diego. Tijuana, the gateway to Baja California's gold coast is less than 30 minutes from downtown San Diego. On the one hand, in Tijuana you'll find museums, art galleries, and the Cultural Center, where you can enjoy both permanent and temporary art exhibits and other expositions.
