Telnor Public Payphones
you can call local or international at the public payphones in the Tijuana area. the public phones are operated by a mexican company called telnor or Teléfonos del Noroeste ("Telephones of the Northwest") which is a big company providing telephone and internet services since 1981 (DSL through Prodigy and E1). It operates in the Mexican states of Baja California and part of the northwest of Sonora, It is part of Grupo Carso Telecom, which is owned by Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim. the call rates are 2 mexican pesos for a local call (for 5 minutes) to a landline and 3 mexican pesos a minute to calls on cellular phones and 5 mexican pesos a minute for calls to the United States (both landline and cellular phone calls) and 7 mecian pesos a minute when calling other international destinations. really handy if you left you celphone at home when going here and the public phones are located everywhere!
Crossing Into Mexico
We park on the U.S. side, costing us
only $5.00 USD to park for the day.
It is alot of fun to walk over the border,
because you get to see the sights on
both sides. Going back to the U.S. is
alot quicker walking through Customs
than driving thru ....
Stay away far far away
I highly urge you all to skip this city
I found it to be the armpit of my entire trip.

Check out the Federales, these guys are all over the place ever since 9/11/01. I felt safer knowing that police protection has been increased on both isdes of the border. They guys may look menacing but they're very friendly, this one was happy to pose for a picture.
