Fascinating Photos Capture Street Scenes of Tijuana in the Late 1980s

Tijuana is the largest city in the state of Baja California located on the northwestern Pacific Coast of Mexico. Tijuana is the municipal seat of the Tijuana Municipality and the hub of the Tijuana metropolitan area. It has a close proximity to the Mexico–United States border, which is part of the San Diego-Tijuana metro area.

Tijuana in the 1980s was a vibrant and dynamic city known for its border culture, nightlife, and tourism. It experienced rapid growth during this time, becoming a popular destination for visitors from both Mexico and the United States.

The city’s proximity to the US border made it a hub for trade, commerce, and entertainment, leading to the development of a unique blend of Mexican and American influences. However, it also faced challenges such as urbanization, population growth, and issues related to drug trafficking and organized crime.

These fascinating photos were taken by Rob56 that show street scenes of Tijuana in 1989.
