Los Cabos & Baja California
Fed up with shady merchants and hawkers creating a negative image of Tijuana's Avenida Revolucion, a group of business owners called CeturMex worked in concert with the Baja Secretary of Tourism to create the Outstanding Host program.
Businesses that pass a certification process are given a logo to display in their window and are listed online at www.ceturmex.com.mx.
Many of the businesses, such as the embroidery shop Hand Art, have been around for more than 40 years, and each pledges to provide honesty, quality, and service. If you're one of the scores of people planning to visit Tijuana just for the shopping, it's worth a visit to the website to narrow down your hunt.
