Where is the cheapest and safest place to live in Tijuana?

bcabrales asked:

This would be for a family of four…me, my daughters 3&5 (American) and my husband (Mexican citizen). I will be crossing the boarder to work in San diego.
Please dont tell me how unsafe it is or ask me why I want to live in TJ. My husband cant come to the US yet. Please just answer the question.

    Have you ever been there? I don’t think there is a safe place in Tijuana. Why don’t you live in San Diego?

    The safest place to live in Tijuana is Playas de Tijuana. There is a construction boom as well, with many new complexes being built.

    If you want cheapest, you could live in the Zona Norte, however, this is not really the safest.

    You should live in Playas de Tijuana. It’s a calm place to live in. It’s a residencial place so you won’t have traffic problems for living here (maybe only at the entrance of Playas for about 5-10 minutes).

    In Playas you have movietheathers, markets, boutiques, nice restaurants. In Playas lives lot of americans. I live in Playas so i can tell it is safe. Of course there might be some “bad people around” but you don’t see them frequently. Here they are also good private schools. Most of them teach english and there are a couple that have “all in english” programs. So it could be a good choice for your daughters.

    You should come and look at it. Rent might be cheap dependendig the size of the house and the location.

    Good luck!

    Zona Rio there are mostly no problems there and heavily patrolled. I strongly recommend you do not take your car and be extremely careful of police officers they are the real thieves. Also Zona Rio is the commercial area of Tijuana there are a lot of high priced stores it is moderately safe there. If you need to live there I recommend you head down to Puerto Nuevo more peaceful as well. Be careful REMEMBER NO CAR! Oh and take the red taxis called taxi libres they’re cheaper and more trustworthy. They’re on your right as soon as you enter the border. NO YELLOW TAXIS they’re crooks too.
