SAN DIEGO — Tour operators and medical and dental offices in the Mexican border city of Tijuana are reporting a slowdown in business since a caravan of Central American migrants arrived.
Tourists and visitors have been cancelling planned trips to the Mexican state of Baja California since the border crossing shut down briefly a week ago, and according to tour-friendly business owners, many fear getting trapped in Mexico should the crossing close again, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported Sunday.
Antonio Gamboa, who owns a well-known food truck park, said business has slumped 30 percent.
“It’s very disappointing because everything is normal in Tijuana, and it’s a very isolated area where the migrants are,” he said.
