San Diego > Tijuana > San Diego
This one day event originates from the Lafayette Hotel in North Park, where we’ll begin a full day in Tijuana. We’ll make four stops throughout the city, including a stop for lunch in the vibrant Telefonica Gastro Park, offering a wide range of food from vegan to traditional meat dishes and food + gift items from the renowned Valle de Guadalupe wine growing region in Baja. Registered participants must carry a valid passport and assume all personal liability associated with international travel. At the end of the tour (approximately 6:30 pm) we will be dropped off at the Lafayette Hotel in San Diego. Out of town guests should plan to stay in San Diego on Sunday night, as border wait times can be unpredictable and we cannot guarantee the arrival time based on northbound border traffic.
We begin our day with a stop at one of Tijuana’s acclaimed galleries, La Caja. Beyond this we’ll head for a photographer’s studio visit, lunch, an exploration of Tijuana’s Parque Teniente Guerrero and a stop at a remarkable artist-run installation space. During each stop there will be opportunities to explore the city on foot, guided by Tijuana residents who will share stories about the city and help us discover the rich history and culture of this border city. With a planned departure by 5:00pm we can expect to return to the Lafayette Hotel around 6:30pm.
