Carved wooden statue

by oslocairo

Hello!

Is thete a place in Tijuana where I can buy a carved wooden religious statue?

Thanks!

Re: Carved wooden statue

Sorry I don't know of any specific place that you'd find wood carved religious statues, but the Curio shops in Tijuana's tourist areas offer many different handicrafts and you might be able to find something in one of those. If you ask at the Curio shops for the item and they don't have it, it is possible they will tell you of a shop that does.

Another idea is at the Mission. They may have something in their gift shop.

Thanks ImKlugue.

Do you know where the mission is?

Re: Carved wooden statue

by lmkluque

The Mission is actually a ruin now, but at Calafia Hotel, which is just south of Rosarito Beach, there is a historical section dedicated to the Mission. I don't know if they have a gift shop now, but you can find out through them. On their website they have contact information. If they don't have wooden carved statues they may know where you could find some.

Also, in downtown Tijuana, around the Cathedral of Our Lady of Guadalupe, on the corners of Calle Segunda and Avenida Niños Héroes,(a few blocks west of Avenida Revolucion) they sell religious statues and there you might find wooden statues. Especially around the 12th of December when they celebrate, with a street carnival, the apparition of Our Lady of Guadalupe to San Juan Diego on December 12, 1531.

Another thought is that while in Tijuana you might commission a "wood carver" to make a statue for you. I don't think it would be too expensive.

Travel Tips for Tijuana

Getting back across to US

by peckerdunne

Sometimes the queues are unbearably long. A couple of hours is not uncommon by all accounts. If you walked across the border the queue back is longer than cars. Locals do pull up in mini buses and ferry people to the checkpoint for $1. They pick you up out of the walking queue and drop you a the checkpoint and you are now at the top of the queue. Best buck you will spend in Tijuana!!

by SNICK

Use your one-liter limit to take some of the local brew (tequila/mezcal) back! I miss nightclubbing there - People's Disco, Long Bar, etc... (Long Bar is closed now, though, and in place of that, Senor Frog's is the place to be!)

EXPLORE TIJUANA. It is Baja's...

by Richmond

EXPLORE TIJUANA. It is Baja's largest city with much of an unending unplaned sprawl creeping into every nook and cranny of the hilly terrain. The density of Tijuana is much more compact than that of any city north of the border.
Even though the Tijuana - San Diego border holds the unique distinction of being the world's busiest international border crossing, most visitors who cross do not see much more than a passing glance of this facinating city as they stay on the main roads or head further south into Baja. For the visitor willing to take the time to explore this city, Tijuana has much to offer!

Looking for excitement? Is Nightlife your thing? Well jump in but don't forget to be safe.In addition to a wild nightlife TJ offers wagering on greyhound racing and on Jai-Alai, the fastest game in the world! Tijuana also offers two bull rings for bullfighting, which attracts locals and tourists alike on Sundays from May through September. There are two very good golf courses near by, and after the sun goes down, a host of restaurants and bars keep the action alive until well into the evening!

Tijuana's claim to fame is shopping, blocks and blocks of shopping! Most of the shopping is centered around a ten block area on Avenida Revolucion, in the central tourist zone. If you can't find what you're looking for here, it probably can't be found. At least not in Mexico!

Like most American big cities, Tijuana has some crime, congestion, and that big city 'people in a hurry' feeling to it. But if one takes the time to explore below the surface of this ever expanding metropolis, a proud people can be found who are optimistic about working for a better future.
