Tijuana travels

I have one of the best, most interesting, most understanding and most entertaining families in the world. That, my friends, is a fact. They recently visited me, and although my mom demanded on staying in a nice Victorian in Coronado rather than staying with me in Tijuana for the entirety of the trip, they did come down for a day.

Here are some tips if you’re planning a family Tijuana day trip:

1. Take them to Playas and drink fresh coconut water from one of the many coco vendors along the beach.

2. Walk along the beach and show them how ironic and ridiculous the fence running into the water is.

3. Drive to Rosarito or Puerto Nuevo for lunch and shopping.

4. Take them to downtown Tijuana so they can get their meds.

5. Take them to a fancy restaurant that serves something other than Mexican food. I recommend Dolce Salato or Saverios. Impress them with Tijuana’s sophistication.

6. Take them to Dandy Del Sur then Estrella for drinks and dancing.

    Ahh you have to include Chiki Jai, on the corner of revolution and 7th, its been there since 1947. Legend has it that Hemingway sat on the corner table next to the window. The restaurant used to be a kitchen for the pelotari playing at the Jai Alai 2 o 3 years later it became a Spanish restaurant that until now serves mostly Tijuana locals.

    That about Ristorante Italianissimo, the only true italian restaurant in Tijuana?

    I have been there several times and I like the combinations of pastas and pizzas they have.
