Tijuana is found on the Gold Coast of Baja California, and is the municipal seat and the cultural and commercial center of Tijuana Municipality (Mexican states are divided into municipalities, rather than counties as in the U.S.). Tijuana covers 70% of the territory of the municipality and consists of 80% of its population. A dominant manufacturing center of the North American continent, the city maintains facilities of numerous multinational conglomerate businesses. In the early 21st century, Tijuana grew to become the health-related–gadget manufacturing capital of North America. Tijuana is also a growing cultural center and has been acknowledged as an important new cultural mecca. The city is the most visited border city in the globe sharing a border of about 24 km (15 mi) with its sister city San Diego, and is known for Tijuana escorts. More than fifty million people cross the border among these two cities each and every year. This metropolitan crossing helps make the San Ysidro Port of Entry the fourth busiest land-border crossing in the world. It is estimated that the two border crossing stations among the cities appropriate of San Diego and Tijuana account for 300,000 daily border crossings alone.
Tijuana is the 45th largest city in the Americas and is the westernmost city in Mexico. According to the 2015 census, the Tijuana metropolitan region was the fifth-largest in Mexico, with a population of one,840,710, but rankings fluctuate, the city (locality) itself was 6th largest and the municipality (administrative) 3rd largest nationally. The international metropolitan region was estimated at about 5,158,459 in 2016, generating it the third-largest metropolitan region in the former Californias region, 19th largest metropolitan region in the Americas, and the largest bi-nationwide conurbation that is shared among US and Mexico with elite latinas. Tijuana is turning into much more suburbanized like San Diego.
