Health & safety
If you’re not looking for trouble (and it’s there, no question), you’ll probably be fine. ‘Almost free, ’ ‘Cheaper than Wal-Mart!’ and other invitations are best answered with ‘no necesito’ (I don’t need it).
Don’t drink on the streets or carry drugs without a doctor’s prescription.
Coyotes and polleros (both mean ‘people smugglers’) congregate along the river west of the San Ysidro crossing. After dark, avoid this area and Colonia Libertad, east of the crossing.
Hospital General (684-00-78; Av Padre Kino, Zona Río) Northwest of the junction with Av Rodríguez.
