An exciting capital of cool, Tijuana is the heart and soul of Baja California. One of the country's largest cityscapes, Tijuana spans nearly 1,392 square kilometers (537.9 square miles) of Mexican territory. Not your average urban landscape, the city is also a tourist hotspot due to its close proximity to the United States. Also home to a fair share of heritage structures, Tijuana manages to retain its colonial past and old-world charm. From the Avenida Revolución that once sheltered the 'largest bar in the world', to the sandy stretches of Playas de Tijuana, to the distinct rotund architecture of the Tijuana Cultural Center, Tijuana is now recognized as more than just the land of partying.
