Tijuana in a Nutshell: 

Walking in Anthony Bourdain's Footsteps in Tijuana, Mexico

January 26, 2019


General Trip Information

To many, Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations's Baja Episode is the bible of going across the border in Baja. Now much has changed in the many years since that episode first aired, which many of you that have traveled with me have experienced first hand. Despite this, it would be interesting and adventurous to go to the places he went and follow in his footsteps.

Beware: This is not my usual Culturista refined trip. This trip is not for the faint of heart, and those easily embarrassed or insulted should stay at home.

We will be only hitting those places that Bourdain went to in central Tijuana, so no Mision 19 or Playas of Tijuana (those places are for girls anyway), but we will go to the other places he went to in the show and mentioned.


Here is a video of one of our previous trips:
