Resumen

GOMEZ ESTRADA, José Alfredo  y  VILLA, Josefina Elizabeth. Continuity and changes in tourism activities in Tijuana, 1920-1949. Región y sociedad [online]. 2018, vol.30, n.72, 00005. ISSN 1870-3925.  https://doi.org/10.22198/rys.2018.72.a778.

The systematic study of tourism in Baja California in the first half of the 20th century is still a task to be done. This paper, based on documentary analysis, is a first approach to the subject, although focused on Tijuana. What is the new is the use of the American and Mexican press as the main source, along with historical documents. General characteristics of tourism activities in the locality are established, and continuity and the most important changes taking place in tourism between 1920 and 1949 are described and explained. It was proven that tourists arrived en masse, and betting and gambling attracted crowds. Also, relevant changes in the American tourists profile and the increase in the demand for sexual services in the 1940s are documented.
