Traffic Information

Federal Highway 1, one of Mexico's main federal highways, ends in Tijuana. This major route can take you to southern destinations, all the way down to Cabo San Lucas in Baja California Sur. If heading on a road trip to Ensenada you might prefer to take the more scenic Highway 1-D that runs closer to the coast. While driving around the city you will probably only visit a few of its eight areas, or Delegaciones. Generally tourists can stick to Agua Caliente and the action found around the Avenida Revolución, the main thoroughfare of the historic Zona Centro. From here you can drive ten minutes to visit the fantastic Tijuana Cultural Center (CECUT) in the Zona Rio. The Paseo de los Heroes dominates this central business district, and earns its name for the statues of national heroes that are found at each of its circular intersections. The Boulevard de las Bellas Artes and Boulevard Industrial are two of the most important streets of the Otay Centario area, due the factories found in their proximity.

Sixt Tips

Sitting right across the border from San Diego, Tijuana is the largest city in Baja California. The city is a perfect destination for an extended weekend away or as a first stop on an adventure to Baja California Sur. Tijuana offers up an exciting an array of shopping, dining and entertainment options, plus proximity to popular beach towns. Besides the main tourist areas you can use your rental vehicle to take you to more places like the Mercado Hidalgo, a large open market, or the Plaza Rio shopping mall. Being so close to the US border makes Tijuana a rather comfortable experience as many locals speak English and many places have no problem accepting US dollars instead of pesos.
