    By a motorcycle

    You can get to Tacna by a motorcycle instead of a car. Almost no rains there and warm or hot days all the year.

    To be honest I met only these two motorcycle on my picture while I drove around Southern Arizona. Why don't they drive motorcycles? Do they need more luxury (RV) or maybe they are afraid of driving a motorcycle (expensive insurances?). What do you think?

    Traffic jams in Tacna :-)

    Don't worry - there are NO traffic jams in Tacna, there are no traffic lights (STOP signs instead), there are no cars driving around. If you are lucky you can find a local pickup truck or some crazy visitors driving around devil knows what for :-).

    Exclusively by a car

    I drove to Tacna from Yuma by I-8 (interstate freeway number 8 - two lanes in each direction). I took an exit 41 to Wellton because my Buick was hungry and needed some fuel. And there was Chevron gas station there. Then I drove around hehe.

    Tacna is located 46 miles (74 km) east of Yuma (I-8) or 147 miles (237 km) southwest of Phoenix (I-8 to US-85) or 193 miles (311 km) west of Tucson (I-8 to I-10).

    As I know there is no other possibility to get to Tacna than by a road - no public transportation there.

    Do NOT sleep while driving!

    by matcrazy1 Written Aug 24, 2003

    Whenever you drive quite monotous and empty I-8 from Tacna towards Tucson do not sleep :-) Better eat, drink, talk by a cell phone (they should work along I-8 as I know), talk with your passengers, listen to the music. OK, any other ideas?
    And watch your exit! Enkarge my picture to see how they are signed.

    Shortage of parking lots!

    Haha, don't worry I have never seen so many empty parking lots like in Tacna - during the whole 38 days' USA trip!
    Look at empty parking lot by Basque Etchea restaurant on my picture.
