Planning a trip down to Tijuana, Mexico?
If so, I have some insights to share!
Traveling to the Baja is a trip I now seem to take almost every year. I’ll usually start in Tijuana before working my way down the peninsula, so suffice to say, I have some experience with the ladies here.
Here are my top places to meet Tijuana girls.
Date Tijuana Girls During the Day
Tijuana is a part of the greater San Diego-Tijuana metropolitan area, which spans two countries and is one of the largest urbanized areas in the entire world.
Known as a migration hub and cultural center in Mexico, it is also one of the fastest-growing areas in the country.
When it comes to meeting girls to date in Tijuana, you can find them wherever you can find people.
Honestly, the trick is not knowing where to find girls, but rather how (more on this later).
My advice is this:
Whenever you see a girl you like, talk to her or start a non-verbal interaction with her (such as making eye contact and smiling) within three seconds.
Why three seconds?
Because if you don’t take action within three seconds, chances are high you won’t take any action at all. So having a mindset of just ‘going for it’ (if you know what I mean) is the approach you need if you want to secure a date either tonight or later this week.
After all, if you see a girl you want to get to know, you never will know her unless if you go up and talk to her.
Now, for the best places:
Shopping malls and plazas are some of the best places to meet women during the day, in my experience.
The reason why is simple:
Most girls you see walking around here are taking a break between their work shifts or are otherwise shopping for fun.
If you walk up to them for a quick two- or three-minute chat and try and get their number, it won’t be a big inconvenience to most of them, and they should be open to talking to you.
The best shopping malls and plazas to check out in Tijuana are:
- Plaza Rio Tijuana
- Plaza Loma Bonita
- Plaza Sendero Tijuana
- Otay Mall
Parks and outdoor areas
A good alternative to shopping malls are public parks. Take an hour or so to go for a walk, and if you happen to find a lovely lady strolling down the opposite way, ask her for directions or something to get a conversation going.
Some of my personal favorites include:
- Parque Morelos
- Maleconn de Playas
- Mountain Hawk Park
- Parque de la Amistad
Landmarks and tourist attractions
Tijuana also has a few notable tourist attractions worth checking out.
The Tijuana Cultural Center is a great place to visit. Located in the Zona Rio neighborhood, it’s been a cultural icon of this city since the 1980s.
Another standout is Pasaje Rodriguez, an alley where all of the finest artists in Tijuana showcase their work. It attracts many people (including the local hotties) and is worth visiting for a stroll.
Where to Meet Tijuana Girls at Night
In general, the best nightlife area in Tijuana is the Avenida Revolucion neighborhood. This is also the area where most of the tourists congregate to hang out and party.
I recommend you spend most of your nighttime in Avenida Revolucion for two main reasons:
- It’s generally safer than other areas in the city.
- Chances are very good you’ll meet women from around the world here.
If you’re staying at a hostel and befriend other people, get a small group to go out for a night out on the town.
I recommend getting a group of guys to go together because most of the time, the girls are hanging out in groups. It’s almost always easier to approach a group of girls while in a group yourself rather than solo.
You may also end up merging groups and spending the night together, during which it should become much easier to get to know the one gal in the group you like.
The best bars and clubs to check out include:
- El Alebrije
- Marko isko
- Las Pulgas
- Club Fusion
- Cerveza Funes
One quick note:
Be warned that prostitutes frequent these bars and clubs as well. Some of them are working, and others are there to party, but regardless, be on your guard.
Dating Tijuana Girls Online
Ideally, you can set up a few dates in Tijuana before you even arrive.
The best dating site I recommend for girls who are more serious about actual dating is AmoLatina.com.
It has a large pool of Mexican users, and many girls on here want to meet visiting American, Canadian, or European men.
Another decent choice is Tinder. The girls here usually aren’t as serious as on AmoLatina, but it’s still worth a shot.
The dating pool on Tinder is quite large, after all, and you should at least give it a try to explore your options.
Tijuana Dating Guide
Once you’ve met a girl and the two of you have decided you’d like to spend some quality time together, here are my suggestions on what to do:
Nice places to hang out with your date
Tijuana is a large and bustling city, but the parks provide some degree of relaxation (especially on a sunny day). One of my favorite parks is Parque Morelos.
Additional day date ideas include visiting the Wax Museum or strolling the streets of Avenida Revolucion.
Good restaurants and bars to take your date to
Some of my favorite restaurants and bars in Tijuana include:
- Mision 19
- La Espadana
- La Justina
- Los Arcos
Final Tips for Picking Up a Tijuana Woman
Stay in the touristy areas
The following needs to be mentioned:
Tijuana is one of the most dangerous cities in the entire world. The violence mostly stems from rivaling cartels, but petty crime and muggings are a problem.
The best advice I can give, if you decide to still visit, is to stick to the touristy areas. These areas are more heavily trafficked by the police.
Walk (and talk) with purpose
Always be on your guard in Tijuana. Walk with purpose, meaning:
- walk upright
- look around your surroundings
- never be on your phone
Part of this is to help ensure your safety, but another reason to walk with purpose is to help attract the glances of the ladies around you.
Make the first move
Mexico is a traditional country where men and women take on traditional masculine and feminine roles.
If you see a girl you like, the burden of performance is on you to walk up to her and begin the interaction. Remember the three-second rule I mentioned above.
