Next Meetup

Jazz/Blues Festival, VERY Mexican lunch... and free art museums
The annual Tijuana Jazz and Blues Festival. With a big plus... we'll do it on Sunday, thus gaining free admission to all the museums at the Cultural Center (the big ball, Death Star Looking Place). This includes the current photo exhibit (Cuba post-Castro) across from the coffeehouse, the California history museum, and the current painting/graphic exhibit which is very interesting (if not sometimes fairly perverted)--a private collection of art featuring the human body. The CECUT, as they call it, also has a lovely sculpture garden. And Sunday will feature live jazz and blues from 3 until 8:30 PM. It's a free and open set-up, which will allow strolling around, not just sitting listening to jazz and de blooze. We'll have lunch around 1 PM at Remedios, two blocks away (one of those blocks featuring a large shopping center, Plaza Rio with 2 movie theaters on one side and Plaza Fiesta, a little craftbeer ghetto with dozens of cool bars, on the other. Remedios is all you could want in memorable, unique, cinematically traditional Mexican restuarant and bar. After lunch we'll walk down to CECUT, through Plaza Rio, and check it out. It should provide a lot of individual choice on music/art/and just exploring the cultural center. Returning to border from CECUT is extremely safe and easy, there may be those who want to go check out other offerings of the area or downtown (which is a quick, cheap bus ride away). More on this as the day gets closer. A good chance to be familar with Zona Rio (a place packed with stuff to do and places to eat) and how to get there.

What we're about

Interested in Tijuana and Baja Mexico south of San Diego? Unsure about visiting by yourself?

Join us as we - together - take advantage of our proximity to Mexico for a curated experience of the best examples of: the culture, the people, as well as the food, wine, craft beer, and beautiful scenic areas Baja California, Mexico has to offer.

The main focus is on the nearby communities of Tijuana, Tecate, Rosarito, and Ensenada. However, we may - at times - include opportunities for additional points further south (or east) on this wild and incredibly beautiful 800-mile long peninsula. We'll likely find some relevant events and opportunities right here in San Diego as well.

Join the group to receive notifications of our scheduled events!
