Internet access

by Mex_traveller

Hi

I'll be in Tijuana for the next 8-12 months and I'm looking for some advice on the best options/companies to get internet access for my laptop. I'll be based in the Rosarito beach area. All advice appreciated.

Thanks

John

Hey John. TELCEL has a mobile USB type connection that I believe does NOT require a contract. I have not used one but seen it advertized. We must get together. When you get cell Phone send it to me. Cheers.

You probably know but just in case, Rosarito Beach is about 33 kilometers south of Tijuana (25 miles). Have fun.

Travel Tips for Tijuana

The Art of Bargaining

by foxglove23

My favorite thing about Tijuana was the chance to get a good deal. Maybe guys can't relate, but I think a lot of women consider finding quality merchandise at prices that would make your best friend jealous an art form. Avenida Revolucion is like a gameshow race for the best bargains. The truth is that Tijuana prices aren't really that amazing in general. There are some great prices here and there, but most of their products aren't that cheap. The fun is trying to get them to charge you as if you weren't a tourist. Whatever price they start with, offer them just below half. They'll balk and refuse and you'll give an "oh well" look and turn away. Then they say "wait" and offer you something about 25% off what they originally wanted to charge you. You can offer half or just over half, and they'll usually agree on the next price.

AVENIDA REVOLUCION

by trotador

Downtown Tijuana, known as the Zona Centro has all the life night and day particularly along Avenida Revolucion, the main street.

Also in Zona Centro is the cathedral of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

Go to Revolucion Street, which...

by Judd

Go to Revolucion Street, which is the main shopping street in Tijuana. There is all kinds of merchandise on sale here, and the rule of the game is to haggle. The merchants expect it, and I was buying things that I didn't even want just to haggle. It's all fun, start off with an offer of half of what the merchant quotes you. You can always walk away and they will either chase you down or you can go to another store a few feet away.

Mexican Pesos

by machomikemd

the mexican pesos is the local currency of Mexico and a peculiarity here in mexico is that it is the first to USE the $ sign (ok the united states just copied it ok! so that you would be surpised if the mexican peso here is using the $ sign since they were the first ones to use it!). many other latin and former spanish colony countries use the peso as currency but the sign is a P not an $. the Mexican peso is now among the 15 most traded currency units in the world, and is the most traded currency in Latin America. current exchange rate for a US Dollar to Mexican Peso is : 1 US Dollar = 13.50 Mexican Pesos. mexican pesos are available in 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500, 1,000 pesos banknotes denominations and the coins are available in 50¢, $1, $2, $5, $10, and $20 denominations.

SECRET SHOPPING -

by Richmond

SECRET SHOPPING -

Not all of the merchants vying for your money have a storefront on the sidewalk of Avenida Revolucion. There are a lot of mini-malls with a common entrance that lead back to a variety of booths with an amazing diversity of items for sale. The most unusual 'Secret Shopping' area is an underground market covering an entire city block. Marked only by an easy-to-miss sign advertising 'Hotel Lafayette', a cool and relaxed shopping experience unfolds for the adventuresome traveler who journeys down the strong wooden stairs to discover what waits below. Few tourists discover this area, which means the merchants are friendlier and more willing to bargain on price. Longing for a Mexican experience without the normal street-level hype? This is an excellent choice!
