Tijuana vacation rentals

Escape to the Mexico border

Just across the US border from sun-dappled San Diego, Tijuana is northwest Mexico's most action-packed metropolis. A cosmopolitan population ensures a thrillingly eclectic dining scene. Of course, you can stuff yourself silly on fiery street tacos, but you can also feast on Mexican haute cuisine in award-winning gourmet restaurants, or savor a light lunch of astonishingly fresh sushi. The local art scene is similarly stimulating, with a raft of cutting-edge galleries clustered around the colorful historic downtown. With a wealth of Tijuana vacation rentals to choose from, you can ensure that you feel at home here right away.

Shop and dance 'til you drop in Tijuana

Tijuana is a shopaholic's dream. Skip the souvenir and trinket shops and head straight to Mercado El Popo, a thrillingly bustling traditional market, where the aromas of fresh spices and incense linger in the air, and you'll find gorgeous gifts like hand-crafted soaps and homewares. If designer brand names are more your thing, head to Plaza Agua Caliente, where you can combine a splurge with a self-indulgent trip to a day spa. Be sure to save some energy for Tijuana's legendary nightlife. Kick off with ice-cold margaritas in a chic beachfront bar, before hitting a pulsing club to dance until dawn.

Awe-inspiring art in Tijuana

You'll find an abundance of enthralling attractions virtually on the doorstep of your Tijuana vacation rental. The city boasts a thrilling arts scene, and the CECUT cultural center is its eye-catching epicenter. An extraordinary ball-shaped IMAX theater is the striking centerpiece, but you'll also find a permanent exhibition charting the history of Baja Peninsula and California, and a large theater that plays host to major plays and concerts. For a primer on the equally exciting local visual arts landscape, head to La Caja Galeria, where you can check out work by the hippest new local and international artists.

Sunny summer days in Tijuana

Summer days in Tijuana tend to be dry, sunny, and pleasantly warm rather than searingly hot. Tijuana vacation rentals are in high demand at this time of year, with the city's relatively mild climate offering an appealing alternative to the intense heat that characterizes much of Mexico and California. The best news is that temperatures remain fairly consistent for most of the year. Winter evenings can get chilly, but you can still expect plenty of sunshine during the day. Rainfall increases slightly in the cooler months of November to February, but remains low all year round.

Hit the beach in Tijuana

Tijuana's coastal location makes it easy to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. Playas de Tijuana is an expansive stretch of golden sand, where locals and visitors alike head to surf, fish, or enjoy and after-dinner stroll. If you're lucky, you might catch a glimpse of wild dolphins frolicking in the deep blue ocean. But to really get away from it all, check out the nearby port town of Ensenada, with its ruggedly beautiful coastline. If you're visiting between December and May, you may be able to witness the awe-inspiring sight of majestic gray whales in migration.
