Although many refer to this as first street it is actually Lopez Mateos and is the tourist district (actual downtown or Centro is 5 blocks) away lots of shops, bars and restaurants and all types of food. Most people in this area speak English, but if you speak Spanish so much the better, do go to an ATM and get... 更多
I had my expectations but the street is fully of very low level souvenir stores, in fact the worst I have ever seen. I collect magnets from my trips and I struggled a lot to find one, quite lousy and cost me 5 US as if I were in DC. sad and poor. i would not dare walking there by... 更多

Most people lose out and get ripped of this way. Better go to the stores that have fixed prices and mark their merchandise. This way you... 更多
Fun but ultimately exhausting with sales tactics so aggressive they leave Tijuana and even Morocco in the dust. Prepare for everyone to have a hand out - "hey Amiga/amigo, come in my shop!" Some vendors or pub touters will even step in your path or try to follow you. It's a pity, since some of the shops have interesting merchandise... 更多
