CROSSING SOUTH is a travel show which explores Tijuana and Northern Baja. Bilingual travel companion and host, Jorge Meraz, takes the audience on a journey and demystifies the area.

Get to know the people, vernacular, foods, customs and places frequented by the locals. To find these travel treasures, Jorge goes further than the tourist traps. There’s a lot to learn and fun to have right next door by "Crossing South."

Avenida Revolucion, the downtown strip in Tijuana, is the typical experience had by visitors who cross south, but as host Jorge Meraz says, "If Revolution Avenue, striped donkeys and cheap souvenirs is all your know out Tijuana, then you really don't know this city at all." More often than not, the local experience is lost. "But worry not," said Meraz, "we're here to help. Let's explore this city."

The premier episode of CROSSING SOUTH will feature the "art of eating tacos," a ride on a Portuguese show horse, a tasting of Tijuana's only micro-artisan beer, and the experience of the Tijuana Xolos soccer club that recently won its championship run.

CROSSING SOUTH is on Facebook.

I love this show! I never thought I wanted to go explore the other side of the border and now I'm anxious to go see all Baja California Norte has to offer. It's really cool. Thank you!!!!!
