I'll admit it. I rewatched the "No Reservations - Baja" episode with my fiancee and the seafood has tempted us into considering a trip down to Tijuana and/or Ensenada. I've driven into Mexico dozens of times (although not since around 2007) but typically I avoid stopping in Tijuana as our destinations are farther south. Can anyone on the board here help me build an itenerary for a 3-day weekend?
The street food in the Zona Norte looked great (Kentucky Fried Buches), but how safe is it?
Has anyone been to a Xolos game, the Tijuana fair, Caliente, or the bull fights?
Is the Guadalupe Valley worth a visit?
Any recommendations for spots farther south? (Probably not beyond Ensenada)
My Spanish is fine (though few will confuse me for a native) and my fiancee is Mexican and fluent so we will not have problems communicating. We've both travelled extensively through Mexico and love it, but I have to admit that the news has deterred me from the border areas for years. I know this is pretty broad, but thank you for any help you can offer.
