Cuatro Corridos partnered with Turista Libre, a modern tour service providing cultural day trips throughout Northern Baja, to create an enriching excursion for those from points north who wanted to attend the performance and experience the new Tijuana.
The tour included bus transportation in and around Tijuana, dinner and drinks at the celebrated La Corriente Cevicheria Nais, a brief tour of the downtown “pasajes” described by the New York Times as “Tijuana’s true new cultural nexus,” and attendance of the chamber opera performance and post reception.
An improving economy and waning drug violence have created the perfect environment for a cultural boom in San Diego’s sister city. Whether it be architectural, culinary, musical or artistic, Tijuana’s regeneration is truly inspiring.
Tijuana is alive with an organic cultural vibrancy; from individual efforts such as Miguel Buenrostro’s attempts to reactivate Tijuana’s beautiful abandoned spaces, to community based projects like Opera en la Calle or the grassroots rejuvenation of some of the city's deserted tourist shopping corridors.
