I and a friend are going to take a trip around the world next year, starting tha 7th of Mars.
Stockholm- Miami- Tijuana- Honolulu- Sydney- Bangkok

Our problem is that we dont know so mutch about were we should live in Miami if we like to live a little bit cheaper.
And also were the party is during the spring break.

We will probably get to Tijuana by buss from San Diego, but kan you take a buss back just as easy? We need to take a flight from San Diego to Honolulu.
And I were also wondering about the prices in Tijuana.

If we cant make our stop in Tijuana, do you have any suggestions for an other stop in a nearby city in Mexico or USA at that time of the year, were there is a ltitle bit of party, and beaches to relax at?

A cheap hotel in Tijuana can be had for around US$25, a midrange place for $50. Food is cheap if you eat where the locals eat. If you get tired of Tijuana and would like to spend some time at the beach try Ensenada, an hour or so south of Tijuana. All the beach resorts in Mexico have a "party" atmosphere.

Assuming you have a car in San Diego here's what you do for TJ.

Drive to the border and park at one of the lots on the American side. Your fee includes a bus that will take you across the border and drop you off in Tijuana. Most of what you will want to see is an easy walk from that point.

Pick up the return bus in TJ and it will take you to the border but not into the US. From there you have to walk across and it's a short walk to the parking lot. Usually no hassle.

If you don't have a car you can take a bus or the trolley from San Diego to the border, walk or take a shuttle over and then likewise walk across the US side for your return trip.

Some people do drive over the border and if you want to do that you'll need special insurance which you can get at one of the local insurance sites (again right at the border). Your rental agreement may not allow this though.

Check out Rosarita Beach, not far down into MX., good for lowkey parties. Be careful when you are out of USA and behave to avoid trouble. Thanks!

although expensive, miami beach is the place to stay in miami. use the bus in mexico to and from san diego. although you might want to look in to mexican or aeromexico for flights from mexico to honolulu
