    Is it safe?

    I visited TJ around 15 years ago and I am looking to go back. I was just wondering if it is safe to go now a days? Last time I was there I was doing work for some orphanages so we were pretty well protected but this time I will just be going for vacation. Thanks for your replies.

    TJ stands for Tijuana? If so, I haven't heard any alarming news or issue taking place in such city.

    In fact I received a travel pamphlet with the top Mexico traveling choices, among which Tijuana is one of the recommended destinations.

    You can find further information in actual tourism suggestions in the Mexico Tourism Board official page over here, Tijuana | VisitMexico

    There are no serious thing going in Tijuana, ever since the new president was elected the violence seemed to move to the center of the country instead of the north. But still Tijuana isn't one of my top spots... it still is somewhat dangerous just like any other city, but not super dangerous as for example witnissing shootings everyday! Incidents happen, but nothing alarming. I'd advice you to be cautious tho, just like you would in any other place. We are not in Europe after all...

    There is as such no news about violence in TJ but Opportunism in the form of cons or misrepresentations can be found anywhere in the city.Good news is that from 2007-2011, drug violence had erupted and then waned in Tijuana due to intense crackdown by the Mexican government .

    The peak in violence around 2007, at least in my state. I was so nervous to go out back then. We often heard gun shots and heard of people getting killed in the street (people involved in drug traffic, of course). We were kinda afraid back then to even go out, because chance to witness a murder in the street were very high.

    Yes Tijuana is safe for all type of tour and holiday's. Don't you worry about any thing. Tijuana is ready to say welcome to you and all other tourist.
    Did you ever experienced durham to new york bus with family or friends ? I have recently. Whenever you go there one thing which you never avoid "Cultural Center". This is a world class museum in Zona Rio, a part of Tijuana few tourist come to. Inside is a Theater and IMAX theatre and the Museum of the Californias along with many temporary exhibits. You will find many temporary art or flower exhibition at there in all seasons.

    Having so much with the dramatically approach works for us and bringing out the best with an impact that it creates would actually be very supportive and it takes things for another level of understanding bus tour to niagara falls from NJ is quite reasonable in most of the ways to us.
