What should I pack when moving to Tijuana?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Tijuana to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"I lived in San Francisco, California area for 50 years, moved to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico in 2009, then to Tijuana in 2012. I moved to PV with nothing but collected quite a bit of stuff while living there. We rented a moving truck and carted it all to Tijuana. I can get everything I need by crossing the border to the U.S. Take what is important to you (treasured things). If you can afford to buy new/used furniture when you arrive, leave as much as you can in the U.S. Customs is a pain," commented one expat who made the move to Tijuana, Mexico.

"When moving to Tijuana, it is important to pack the essentials. Be sure to bring clothes suitable for the climate, such as light, breathable fabrics. Make sure to bring an adequate supply of medication, as well as any special dietary needs you may have. Don't forget to bring a Mexican phone SIM card and adapter to plug in electrical appliances, as well as an international driver's license if you plan on driving. Other items to bring include documents to be authenticated, such as birth certificates; any important documents; books, CDs and DVDs; and toiletries. Lastly, bring a good sense of adventure and excitement to explore the vibrant culture and cuisine of Tijuana, Mexico," remarked another expat in Tijuana, Mexico.
