My family and I used to go every year but in the last 15 years we have gone once. Too much bad stuff going on. News on TV does not help either.

It's safe enough if you stay in the right areas. You have to be street smart down there and knowing a little spanish never hurts.

That being said, it's still a total **** hole and there really is no good reason to go to any border town let alone TJ. If you want to go to mexico, take a cruise or fly down to cabo or someplace else nice.

I read an article recently that most of the cruise ships are now bypassing Mazatlan because of the violence near the ports. They are now staying twice as long in Cabo, because it is still a safe port for tourists.

All the times have driven In Tijuana, have not had any problems. People that get in trouble are usually drunk and peeing on a cop car. Duh!!!! That will get you arrested anywhere.

I can go back and forth just fine if I go alone, but wifey (Jamaican) and son give me away as a "gringo" if I take them..

My girlfriend's mom and aunt walk across to get certain prescriptions super cheap and then walk right back across. They say it is no problem to do that....it just takes an hour and a half standing in line to get back across the border.

Even the Mexicans I know from TJ say it isn't safe to visit. Although, the craigslist postings for villas with private beaches for 600/ month rent are pretty tempting.
