    Tecate isn't really the sort of place you go for site seeing, as there isn't that much to see. Tecate is more of a place to go for a shopping trip. That's what we did, and that's what most visitors do. There are stores and street vendors located almost everywhere in the downtown area near the train station. You can buy a variety of traditional...

Bring your bathing suit, shorts, tank tops and slippers. Also bring alot of sunscreen because the sun can be brutal.

    Algodones Warnings and Dangers

    It is just a matter of life for some locals to sit on the streets and sell what I would view as nasty pornographic type items (too embarrassing to describe) and the people there just seem to laugh about it and the street children (who sell home-made jewelry) just take it all in stride. In my opinion, it would be hard to be raised in that type of...
