I need to fill up my passport somewhere  ;)

My concern is about safety, Is Tijuana a safe place to spend a few hours roaming around?
My signature is worth more than that.

If you walk in and go to Av. Revolución, the main street, you'll be fine.

Are you planning on driving there? I'm unsure if you'll get it stamped

+1. Last I was there they didn't stamp (or even stop you from just walking in. Now they have a new border facility so that may be different.

2/12 LAX - ZLO
2/19 ZLO - LAX
Staying at Pepe's Hideaway.  Hubby will be working a few days in Colima so hopefully that volcano chills out!!

Also regarding Tijuana, I just went across the border with a friend and her daughter on 1/17 to get a bottle of Rumpope and grab a few tacos.  We haven't been down there for many years.  All I can say is NEVER again!!!! Scary stuff for sure. There was only a handful of Americans. So sad, the drug cartels have totally changed it.  It took us 3 hours to get back into the good ole USA and we were on foot.  The line of people was a mile long, 4 across!!! Every single person has to be questioned by an immigration officer. They only stamped the Mexican immigration form that you have to fill out when entering Mexico not our passport.

No they still don't stamp, and the wait time was nearly 10 minutes.
