Tijuana: The Great City of Baja California
The city of Tijuana is located on the northern border of the country. Also known as the "corner of Mexico", it invites you to walk its streets and get to know its multifaceted and vibrant culture that has been favored by the proximity of the United States.
What today is one of the country's most progressive cities, was in 1829 a hacienda with only about 200 inhabitants, a school, and a customs house. The meaning of Tijuana in the Cochimí word means "near the water", probably because of its proximity to the sea.
During the 1940s Tijuana was a city very visited by North Americans, who came in search of some amusements prohibited at that time in their country. That image has been forgotten, being nowadays a sophisticated metropolis visited by millions of people for rest, business or to cross to the neighboring country, which makes it the busiest city in the world and the most developed and growing city in the state of Baja California, thanks to its maquiladora industry, its active commerce, and tourism with great potential.
