San Diego–Tijuana

'''San Diego–Tijuana''' is an international metropolitan (metropolis) conurbation, straddling the border of the adjacent North American coastal cities (List of cities in North America) of San Diego, California, United States and Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. The 2012 population of the region was 4,922,723, making it the largest bi-national conurbation shared between the United States and Mexico and the fourth largest in the world. In its entirety, the region consists of San Diego County (San Diego County, California) in the United States and the municipalities (municipio (Mexico)) of Tijuana (Tijuana Municipality, Baja California), Rosarito Beach (Rosarito Beach Municipality, Baja California), and Tecate (Tecate Municipality, Baja California) in Mexico. It is the third most populous region in the California-Baja California region, smaller only than the metropolitan areas of Greater Los Angeles (Greater Los Angeles Area) and the San Francisco Bay Area.

The largest centers of the urban area maintain global city status Renowned for natural beauty, tourism is a leading industry in the region and its coastal environs have been paramount factors in the growth of action sports (extreme sports)-lifestyle companies. Other key industries include military, biotech, and manufacturing.

San Diego–Tijuana traces its European roots to 1542 when the land was explored by Portuguese explorers on behalf of imperial Spain. In 1601 it was mandated by the Spanish viceroy in Mexico City that safe ports be found, one of which would be San Diego Bay, for returning Spanish trade ships (Galleon) from Manila to Acapulco. During this mission, the explorer Sebastián Vizcaíno was also told to map the California coast in great detail; leading to the further exploration of the modern day site of San Diego–Tijuana.
