<p>by &#8211; <a href="/people/angie">Angie</a>, Tour Manager, North America</p> <p>Tijuana, Mexico is just a short jump from <a href="/contikipedia/articles/san-diego">San Diego</a>, <a href="/contikipedia/articles/california">California</a>. It is geared towards tourists, so the street is a sort of circus-like interpretation of Mexico.</p> <p>Contiki takes the group to Tijuana for a Mexican lunch, and then everyone is on their own for a few hours to souvenir shop for items such as decorative- guitars, maracas, ponchos, or sombreros.</p> <p>Tijuana is also known for selling silver and leather, so some group members check out jewelry or boots. And there are always a few who spend their time sampling Mexican beer or tequila.</p>
