The Zona Norte includes the red light district, which need not be highlighted considering the site's policy on sex tourism information. However, the red light district and the main tourist district largely overlap. Do we want to locate the red light district so as to warn tourists about how easy it will be to accidentally stumble onto it if they don't know where it is? - Tim
And also, extreme budget tourists will find the cheapest hotels in this zone. These are reasonably safe, based on what I've read, and so mentioning them might be legitmately helpful to many travellers. But we can hardly recommend these places without explaining what they will be in the middle of if they choose to stay there.
I'm not sure Tijuana needs districts, what say? 2 of the 4 say in their intro that they're primarily residential... and I'm guessing not much of interest for the traveler. I think Tijuana could, even when it's guide/star quality, be contained on one page - Cacahuate 03:08, 21 February 2007 (EST)
answer to Disticts?
There are thousands of districts here in Tijuana. About fifty pertain to gringo tourists. It looks like Wikitravel is only concerned with gringo tourists. -Que_me_vale 16:26, 24 February 2010 (WDT) —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 188.8.131.52 (talk • contribs)
Police in Tijuana
There is no problem with the police in Tijuana. When I visited the city for a week in 2003, I walked all over the town -- including the tourist-trap area and the infamous Zona Norte (North Zone) -- the red light district.
The police didn't bother me at all. The only people I had to watch out for were the wasted Gringos who cross the border to look for trouble.
Tijuanenses as a group are very nice people and the town is interesting and colourful especially if you get away from Revolucion Ave. Hop on local buses...best way to get around.
As long as you treat everyone with respect, you will get ahead. Maybe my experience is biased because I'm a native Spanish speaker, don't act or look like a loudmouth Gringo. StephanieNYC 16:35, 12 March 2007 (EDT)
There is a huge problem with police shake downs as people walk to the border crossing. It's common to be frisked and wallet searched, and to discover later that bills have been removed. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 184.108.40.206 (talk • contribs) 1 May 2007
Someone named Dguilllame (or something similar) has been reverting changes made by real Tijuanenses who wish to make this entry accurate. We do not understand Dguillame's issues. The U.S. State Department has not issued a warning about Mexico, only an alert, for which we have identified the appropriate URL. Follow the URL and you will see that Mexico is not under a warning. The alerts are issued with a six-month limit, consequently the new one was confirmed two days ago.
Other edits that we have made, which Dguillame has reverted, have to to with the current state of Tijuana. Dguillame insists on showing businesses that have been closed for five years! WHY?
Heavily biased article
This article is heavily biased and includes a lot of dubious information. Makes the reader imagine the city as a true battlefield, which it isn't. The "tips" given are also general knowledge which can be used when visiting unsafe places in ANY city, so why include them here? Makes it seem like locals are just looking for ways to steal, cheat and take advantage of tourists.
It's enough to compare this article to the one of any US city (like San Diego, or even a more insecure place) to know that there is bias, unneded information and a lot of subjective details. This does not have the likeness of a true Wikipedia article.
Will try to "fix" this mess.Please be responsible when including personal opinions, biased, uninformed or subjective information about any city.--220.127.116.11 16:31, 21 April 2010 (EDT)
