UPCOMING TREKS

Hello!


TIX POSADA DEC 2016

GUADALUPE HOLIDAY PARTY | 11 AM SUNDAY DEC. 11 | $55
CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS.

Queen of Mexico. Empress of the Americas. Lupita, my homegirl. Her titles may be many, but her precedence south of the border is second to none. Join us on the eve of the annual feast day of Our Lady of Guadalupe, as the people of Tijuana take to the streets to honor the nation’s patron saint with processions, prayers and parades.

We’ll start with a meal of traditional antojitos mexicanos, followed by a lap of the more impressive of the countless Guadalupe murals scattered around the city and visits to Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe Cathedral in downtown Tijuana and Mercado El Popo, the oldest market in the town.

And, as this day marks the official kickoff of the holiday season in Mexico, we’ll finish with a posada party complete with piñatas, punch, buñelos, rompope, games, regalos and more.

Tickets include roundtrip border transport, lunch and dinner.

The group meets at the San Ysidro trolley station at 11 a.m., with an estimated return to the border at 7 p.m.

TIX WINERIES DEC 2016

VALLE DE GUADALUPE WINERY HOP | 10 AM SATURDAY DEC. 17 | $170
CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS. SOLD OUT.
CLICK HERE FOR FEB. 18 TICKETS.

Eighty miles from the border lies the Valle de Guadalupe wine country, a cluster of some 100 vineyards scattered between the hills between Ensenada and Tecate. Often referred to as the Napa of Mexico, it's increasingly perking the curiosity of oenophiles from near and far.

Given the distance and rural terrain, we'll be forgoing our usual mode of transport for a van with room for 13.

Tickets include roundtrip border transport, tastings at three wineries and dinner at Finca Altozano.

The group meets at the San Ysidro trolley station at 10 a.m., with an estimated return to the border at 9 p.m.

CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS.

All aboard for a rare opportunity to not only tour two of Baja California's most iconic pieces of architecture – Tijuana III Millennium (aka La Mona) and Puerto Nuevo's La Sirena – from head to toe, but to meet the man who built them, too: sculptor-architect Armando Muñoz Garcia.

The group meets at the San Ysidro trolley station at 11 a.m., with an estimated return to the border at 6 p.m.

TIX DIVES JAN 2017

DAMN-FIVE TIJUANA DIVES | 7 PM SATURDAY JAN. 14 | $50
CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS.

Paint the town rojo with a lap of downtown Tijuana’s damnedest-fine dive bars, a collection of what locals know as the border city’s most quintessential cantinas. Watering holes that double as would-be wormholes in the spacetime continuum, these are hands-down some of our most favorite classic spots in town whose names, in the spirit of suspense, we’ll keep secret until the night of.

Tickets include a round at each cantina, plus an all-you-can-eat feast of tacos varios before calling it a night.

The group meets at the San Ysidro trolley station at 7 p.m., with an estimated return to the border at 12 a.m.

TIX PANCA JAN 2017

TIJUANA STREET ART TREK WITH PANCA | 11 AM SATURDAY JAN. 21 | $55
CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS.

Arguably one of Tijuana’s more popular visual exports in recent years, Panca’s (aypanca.com) paintings are an existential take on the border city's vivid surreality. Once reserved for underpasses, alleyways and other urban crevices, her work has since soared to new heights, from the walls of San Diego Art Institute to Wallpaper Magazine.

Tickets include roundtrip border transportation, a lap of recent murals with the artist, lunch at one of Panca's favorite taco spots, a visit to her Playas de Tijuana studio and an after-tour pop-up exhibit before returning to the border.

The group meets at the San Ysidro trolley station at 11 a.m., with an estimated return to the border at 6 p.m.

CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS.

新年快乐! Join us for our annual lunar New Year voyage to Mexicali, Baja California’s capital city and the home of Mexico's highest per-capita population of Chinese immigrants.

Tickets include roundtrip private transport from Tijuana, a guided museum tour and lecture on the history of city's Chinese community at the Asociación China de Mexicali, a walking tour of Mexicali's original subterranean Chinatown, a visit to a Chinese market and Chinese cemetery and Mexicali-style Chinese food for dinner.

Given the added distance, we'll be forgoing our usual bus transportation for a van with room for 13.

The group meets at the San Ysidro trolley station at 7 a.m., with an estimated return to the border at 8 p.m.

Hello!

TIX MARKETS JAN 2017

TIJUANA MARKET HOP | 10 AM SUNDAY JAN. 29 | $30

On Sundays, the hilltop streets of Tijuana are filled by swapmeets so massive – blocks and blocks of vendors selling mountains of the most random secondhand loot. Even if you make your way out of the bargain bin maze without dropping a single peso, you’ll walk away having lived an essential Mexican experience: the mercado.

We'll do stops at three of Tijuana's most iconic tianguis: the city's longest-running flea market, the Mercado de Artesanías and Mercado Miguel Hidalgo, the city's oldest open-air market in Zona Rio.

Tickets include roundtrip border transportation and complimentary pan dulce upon arrival.

The group meets at the San Ysidro trolley station at 10 a.m., with an estimated return to the border at 4 p.m.

Hello!

Join Turista Libre in raising a glass to Baja California's artisan beer scene, with a visit to three of Tijuana's more than 40 craft brewers that are on the rise. Also on the itinerary are a taco stop or two.

The group meets at the San Ysidro trolley station at 1 p.m., with an estimated return to the border at 9 p.m.
