CaliBaja is a mega region formed by the state of Baja California, in Mexico, and the state of California, in the United States. This strategy started in 2008 with the purpose of forming a society that would focus on the promotion of the industrial sector for the economic development of Mexico and the United States.
CaliBaja comprises Baja California, San Diego County and Imperial County in California. It has more than 90 universities and colleges and more than 3.8 million jobs.
The mega region seeks the cooperation between these two borders and their neighboring states. The business opportunities in Mexico are enriched by the elements of a region like CaliBaja.

It is a dynamic border that generates a strategy to boost the economic growth, which at the same time leads to greater opportunities for innovation, research, technology, science, industry and a prosperous place for foreign investment in Mexico.

1. Quality of life
Tijuana is a privileged region, not only in Mexico but also globally. Its landscapes, touristic places, gastronomy, geography, natural phenomena and cultural movement have drawn the attention of the whole world. The city has become an emerging place of unrepeatable cultural and social manifestations.
The touristic increase in recent years in Tijuana —the #1 city for aerospace manufacturing in Mexico and low cost manufacturing— is not simply random. This multicultural border enriches the lifestyle of its inhabitants, which has resulted in a boom of new businesses for the entertainment of everyone.
From taco street stalls to haute cuisine restaurants, food trucks and the famous Caesar’s salad, Tijuana’s cuisine offers a refreshing and daring taste to diners in any city.
Tijuana has more than 3,000 restaurants. In them, the recipes and type of cuisine varies widely. The Baja Med style is a gastronomic concept created in Tijuana.
Tijuana even ranked number eight in the list of 52 places to visit in 2017 published by the New York Times, and it has been two consecutive years the best place to vacation according to the World Travel Awards.
3. Beer and wine
Tijuana’s craft beer has gained ground in the national market, but also in the tourism of the region. The breweries in Tijuana no longer only sell national beverages, but each brand creates its product, making excellent flavored and quality beers.
Likewise, Valle de Guadalupe is an almost mandatory destination for tourists and locals due to the quality of its wines. The vineyards of Baja California produce approximately 90% of the national wine.
4. Art and culture
The city is recognized for the events that are organized frequently in different parts of the city. It has museums, art and theater halls; the Tijuana Cultural Center is one of its main attractions for both locals and foreigners, since it reunites all the artistic disciplines in a single venue.
Music festivals, art, gastronomy, beer and book fairs are celebrated almost every month in Tijuana, with a considerable number of attendees in each. Much of the population’s activities revolve around culture and art.
5. Medical services
Since Tijuana is a city adjacent to the US border, people from all over the world come to the city looking for a medical alternative.
Tijuana stands out for its medical service, as it is accessible and the care is more than adequate. Therefore, in recent years medical tourism has strengthened and even increased, as more foreign people come to request a service.
The weather of the CaliBaja region is friendly. The temperature is between 55 to 80°F throughout the year.
