When I planned my first trip to Tijuana, I knew I wanted it to be epic. I have a good friend who lives there but didn’t want to impose on his lodging (at the time he was living with an ex) so I decided to book an Airbnb with two bedrooms in the city center so we could enjoy Revolucion Avenue in the day and night.
I let him narrow the list of options down since he lived there and knew the area, and when we settled on three, I decided that one was too far and the other two basic. So I splurged and book the most expensive one.
The place we got was a concrete condo with a very reto vibe. Eclectic furnishings and a record player. It took me a little while to get used to the cement staircase with no railing, but every time I came down the steps to the sound of Nat King Cole I felt like I truly was on vacation.
The apartment is in the Colonia Cacho, a stylish neighborhood that melted my heart from the instant I saw it. I would much prefer to live here than the area around Revolucion.
