11 things to do

All Places United States California



Albergue para Migrante

A hostel for migrants from poorer regions south moving northwards towards the U.S., and definitely not a place for those seeking a few hours of privacy with a prostitute. Ask if they will let in a backpacking tourist.


Cascadas 2000

The major hotel in the centre of the Zona Norte, it has rooms that are relatively safe and clean, and many of the women who work in the Zona Norte rent rooms here by the week or by the month.

Hotel Acapulco

Can Sleep (if possible with all the noise from Ave Coahuila), Play cards with the desk clerk ($10 a hand) or chat (or other things) with Carla from Acalpulco all night.

A Tijuana institution since 1963, this place serves only one thing: deep-fried chicken neck tacos. Comes with unlimited tortillas and salsa.
