Because of it's size, we would like to go to Mexico via Tecate instead of Tijuana. We want to buy the cheapy souveniers and wanted to see if those vendors are also in Tecate.
Visiting Tecate August 2 and 3. Staying at El Dorado and Rosita Resort respectively. Just wondering whether there's anything I should be aware of - no-go areas, dodgey neighbourhoods, etc. given that this is a border town and probably sees a lot of transient travellers heading north. Actually, any insights (+ or -) would be greatly appreciated. I'm guessing it's going to be pretty warm, but is it a dry heat or a humid heat? Thanks in advance. Susan
As previously suggested, a day trip to Tecate sounds interesting. What are some of the main things "to do or see" and is it easy to leave your car on the California side of the border and just cross over?
