Tijuana & Baja public treks


The themes of our Tijuana and Baja California public treks rotate from weekend to weekend, and most itineraries — with the exception of seasonal tours — happen every six to eight weeks.


T³: Tijuana's best tacos, tortas + tostadas

11 am Sunday Sept 22
$69.57
Tickets

Tacos, tortas, tostadas. The three T’s of Mexican comida callejera warrant skipping breakfast without a second thought. Join Turista Libre for a lap around Tijuana in search of the border city's most authentic, incomparable incarnations of this culinary superstar trio.

Tickets include roundtrip border transportation, courses at each restaurant, dessert at an artisan ice cream parlor with more than 80 flavors and a pint of locally brewed cerveza artesanal at one of Tijuana's many tap rooms.

The group meets on the U.S. side of the Pedwest border crossing at the Virginia Avenue Transit Center at 11 a.m., with an estimated return to the border at 6 p.m.


Lucha libre Mexican wrestling live in Tijuana

7 pm Friday Sept 27
$20.51 – $65.35
Tickets

Masked men in stretchy pants throwing down body slams, somersaults, backflips and trash talk en español could only mean one thing. Así es, ¡lucha libre! Mexican wrestling differs little from its American counterpart, technically speaking. Best two out of three wins. But the camp, action, drama, color, acrobatics and sporadic pyrotechnics make it nothing short of a living, breathing comic book.

Tickets include roundtrip border transportation, entrance to the match, pre-fight tacos and a lucha libre souvenir so sweet you’ll probably pass it on to the grandkids.

The group meets on the U.S. side of the Pedwest border crossing at the Virginia Avenue Transit Center at 7 p.m., with an estimated return to the border at 12:30 a.m.


Tijuana market hop + street eats trek

10 am Sunday Sept 29
$45.30
Tickets

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.

Each market is also home to some of the city's most-mouthwatering street eats, which is why we like to tout our monthly market hop "a food tour in disguise."

We'll do stops at some of Tijuana's most iconic markets, from flea to folk: the city's longest-running swapmeet, the Mercado de Artesanías crafts market, Mercado Miguel Hidalgo, the city's oldest open-air farmers market, and locals'-only boutiques in downtown's Pasaje Rodriguez and Pasaje Gomez.

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

The group meets on the U.S. side of the Pedwest border crossing at the Virginia Avenue Transit Center at 10 a.m., with an estimated return to the border at 5 p.m.


Tijuana street art trek + 'mini mural' workshop with Clos

11 am Saturday Oct 5
$74.84
Tickets

Get upclose and personal with the borderland's sprawling concrete canvas on the next installment of Turista Libre's ongoing series of Tijuana street art treks. For this edition, we'll be touring the colorful collisions of Eastern theology and prehispanic-inspired geometry that are the works of "Clos," aka Carlos Rodriguez.

Tickets include roundtrip border transportation, a lap of recent murals with the artist, lunch and a private workshop at Clos' home studio, where we'll use aersols to craft our very own Clos-inspired "mini murals" to take home.

The group meets on the U.S. side of the Pedwest border crossing at the Virginia Avenue Transit Center at 11 a.m., with an estimated return to the border at 6 p.m.


Tijuana 'hold the meat' vegan eats

10 am Saturday Oct 12
$70.62
Tickets

Be it de chile, lenteja, yuca, garbanzo, betabel, coliflor, huitlacoche or huazontle, nothing compares to the almighty taco. Join Turista Libre for a special vegan edition of our regular treks to the edges of Tijuana in search of the city's most authentic, incomparable incarnations of Mexico's culinary superstar.

Tickets include roundtrip border transportation, courses at three vegan eateries and dessert at an artisan ice cream parlor with more than 80 flavors, half of which are vegan, too.

The group meets on the U.S. side of the Pedwest border crossing at the Virginia Avenue Transit Center at 10 a.m., with an estimated return to the border at 5 p.m.
