Tijuana History
Right here where Tijuana stands today, was once part of the territory of the "Kumiai", natives to this land that lived here according to their weather and food necessities.

Around the year 1829, in this same territory, which at the time was filed with hills, canyons and a river called Tijuana, was given to the military and political California citizen Santiago Arguello Moraga thru the political chief of the Department of California José Maria Echendía. In 1976 the VIII city council designated July 11th 1889 to be the official date Tijuana was founded as a city.

At the beginning of the century, Tijuana was nothing but a small town of only 245 population. The only place you would find any houses, it would be in the downtown area and the main avenue, “Olvera” Street (today known as Revolution Avenue) which was filed with small businesses dedicated to tourism.

In a relative small amount of time, Tijuana has grown so much since then it has become one of the most important and dynamic cities not only in Mexico, but in the entire world as well. According to the last statistics, the population is between 1.5 million and 2.3 million.

Also, being the US-Mexico border, it has made this city an obliged passing destiny for many Latin-Americans who come looking for the "American dream". But it has also formed an economical and cultural link to one of the most important cities in the USA, San Diego CA.

So, we consider that Tijuana is a land of progress, in which everyday hard work, responsibility and honesty from its citizens have contributed to make of this city a unique place in many ways!
