There is amazing food in Tijuana. Literally the food capital of Mexico some would argue. I thoroughly enjoy tasting as many dishes as possible and finding the little gems tucked away in the back neighborhoods and corners. The dishes aren’t always my favorite part of the meal though. Sometimes the ambience of the restaurant, the…

It was quite an adjustment to wrap my head around the tipping process in Tijuana. In Colorado I was well trained to pump my own gas, bag my own groceries and to become self sufficient without the help of others. It took me a few years to realize all of the people here that work…

When I first moved down to Baja, the idea of converting dollars to pesos at a specific exchange rate baffled me, continues to baffle me. Possibly there are others like me who like the idea of visiting Tijuana but would like a few more tips before grabbing their wallets and heading this way. I’m pretty…

A new shopping trend is coming through Tijuana and you can find it now on the beach side of town. Boutiques. Bazaars. Gift Shops.

The owners of the…

(…even your buddy’s exceptionally particular girlfriend that tagged along.) You could find anything from grilled cheese to top of the line Ramen, chicken and waffles,…

Tijuana sushi is different than authentic Japanese or American style sushi. This much I know. I didn’t realize this until I tried sushi in Tijuana and had to get through all the Philadelphia cream cheese, in every single bite. California roll with philly, spicy tuna with philly, spider roll with philly, huge pile of rice…

Many, many people drive cars in Tijuana with San Diego plates. It’s not difficult to do as long as your car is registered and plates are up to date. If you get a ticket from a traffic cop in Tijuana you may fall into a loophole. A lucky loophole that allows you to get away…

I love telecommuting and working entirely on the internet, but sometimes I just have to get out of the house. Being in the right location with the perfect ambience helps me focus and get more work done. That being said…these coffee shops are my favorite to work from, in Tijuana:   Baristi Tostador (Zona Rio)…

The first month I was living in Mexico City, we decided to go to the lake and leave at 9:00am the next morning. At 8:55 I was packed and ready to walk out the door. Punctual as trained…let’s go! Ready! The family appeared ready, gathered in summer wear around Abuelita’s modest, hand-laid mosaic stone courtyard. Nobody…
