Tijuana (English pronunciation: /tiːəˈwɑːnə/ or /tiːˈwɑːnə/,[2][3] Spanish: [tiˈxwana]) is a city on the Mexican Pacific Coast located in Baja California. The city is the largest city of the Mexican state of Baja California. On a larger scale Tijuana is the 28th largest city in the Americas and is situated on the United States–Mexico border adjacent to its sister city of San Diego, California. Tijuana is the westernmost city in Mexico, though the westernmost population center is located in Isla Guadalupe, and is one of the dominant regional centers in northwestern Mexico. The city is currently one of the fastest growing cities in Mexico.

According to the 2005 census, the Tijuana metropolitan area was the sixth-largest in Mexico, with a population of 1,483,992. 2009 National Population Council (CONAPO) place the Tijuana metropolitan area at 5th largest in the country with 1,784,034 persons. The metropolitan area comprises two municipalities: Tijuana and Playas de Rosarito.

Tijuana also forms part of San Diego-Tijuana, a metropolitan area with the total population estimated to be just over five million in 2009 and approximately 5,105,769 in 2010,[4] making it the second largest metropolitan area in the Californias, 22nd largest metropolitan area in the Americas[5] and the largest bi-national conurbation that is shared between US and Mexico. It is estimated that the two border crossing stations in Tijuana account for 300,000 daily border crossings from Greater San Diego.
