Ooh, I’ve been to Tijuana several times (it’s not far from San Diego, where I have family), and it is such a sad place... I hope to never go back, unless it has something to do with social work.
We were in Puerto Vallarta and Yelapa this trip, which you can google. I also like Cancun, Cozumel, Tulum, and Playa Del Carmen. These are beautiful places in Mexico, though of course there are still pockets of poverty hidden away from tourists.
I have friends who are DACA recipients and they don’t want to go back to Mexico because they consider the USA home, but I have heard that some families are choosing to retreat back to Mexico.
The only difficult part of being in Mexico this time was the guilt of having Trump as our president. We felt the need to tell people that we didn’t vote for him and don’t agree with him, which instantly relieved tension. It was different when Obama was our president. *siiiiigh*
