Is it safe for a female to cross the border alone?

thanks for the information.

Tijuana answers:

Yes, it’s safe for women to cross the border alone into Tijuana. We do it all the time.

Being “blk” is not an issue with the cops south of the border the way it is with those north of the border.

If it will make you feel any better, you have a lot of safety nets available.
Hotline in English around the clock, dial 078 from any Mexican phone in Baja.
From a U.S. Cell, dial 1-888-775-2417 seven days a week from 7:00am to 7:00pm.
You also have access to the Procuraduría de Derechos Humanos, www.pdhbc.org/ , and the Sindicatura for the city of Tijuana, www.sindicatura.gob.mx/

Mark asks…

What is the direct phone number to the Hotel Real del Rio Tijuana?

I’m calling from Los Angeles. I can only find travel sites that list the hotel, but not a direct 800 number to the hotel.

Tijuana answers:

I typed in Hotel Real del Rio Tijuana Mexico in Google search and lo and behold:

AVENIDA JOSÉ MARÍA VELAZCO #1409-A
22320 Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico
1 664 634 3100

Please pick a “Best Answer”, even if it is not mine.
That way we can tell if we really do help people.

What is the name of the movie to be shot in Rosarito Beach Baja Mexico in August, Sept. 2011?

During July 2011 casting has been on-going for a movie to be filmed in Rosarito Beach, Baja, Mexico.
It is a film about 1940’s American town. Who are the stars, producer etc

Tijuana answers:

The name is “Little Boy”,
Here is a copy of an article in SignOnSan Diego By Sandra Dibble:

A movie set in northern California during World War II is being shot in Baja California, bringing a $14 million investment that state officials said Monday will breathe new life into the region’s film industry.

Called “Little Boy,” it tells the story of an 8-year-old who dreams about rescuing his father from the war. The scenery moves from a Norman Rockwell-esque town to a prisoner-of-war camp in the Philippines to the devastation of Hiroshima following the atomic bomb.

Eduardo Verastegui, a Mexican actor, is co-producing the film through Los Angeles-based Metanoia Films. The director is Alejandro Monteverde, who is co-author of the script with Pepe Portillo. Actors include Ben Chaplin and Emily Watson.

Most of the action will be shot at Baja Film Studios south of downtown Rosarito Beach, the same location where James Cameron’s 1997 film “Titanic” was filmed.

On Monday, Baja California’s governor, Jose Guadalupe Osuna Millan joined other authorities in touring a set built do look like a town on a bluff that overlooks the ocean.Other locations around the state also will be used as backdrops, including the Guadalupe Valley, the Laguna Salada and the Casa de Cultura in Tijuana.

State authorities announced that the production will generate more than 1,000 jobs, and said that over than 90 percent of the staff will be local hires. Juan Tintos, Baja California’s tourism secretary, said members of Rosarito’s large ex-pat community will be enlisted as extras.

“It’s a good investment, it’s good for the location,” Tintos said.

Filming began in June and is expected to continue through November. The movie is scheduled for release in 2012
