      5 Reason Otay Mesa San Diego is a Great Place to Live in 2021

      Otay Mesa is a place rich in history that offers its residents a suburban feel due to its dense population. The town is located in the southern part of San Diego city and north of the US- Mexico border stretching from the sea to the San Ysidro Mountains.

      The name Otay Mesa comes from a combination of words from two different communities. Otay is derived from the native Kumeyaay Indians, whose meaning is disputed amongst the locals. Some claim it was derived from ‘otai’ meaning brushy while others ‘tou-ti’ for big mountain or ‘etaay,’ which translates to something big. Mesa is borrowed from the Spaniards what they refer to as plateau or tableland.

      Otay Mesa is the preferred Port of Entry border crossing in San Diego as it links warehouses in the city with those in Mexico. Transportation trucks are a common sight as they transverse the trade route. It is also immigration and a detention center for San Diego for cross border migration.

      The initial economic activity was farming, having progressed from hunting and gathering. It was undertaken by natives as well as immigrates, most of whom were from Germany and Italy. The residents lived an active, simple life indulging in as little luxury as possible. 

      Here is our list of reasons:

      Reason 1: Nature Trails

      Otay Mesa is home to one of the largest expanse of land in the southern part of San Diego, the Otay Valley Regional Park. It links south San Diego Bay with Otay Lake providing both residents and tourists numerous fun activities, whatever their preference. Whether you are seeking playgrounds for your children or are wanting to have a gentle stretch for hiking, cycling, or horse riding, you can indulge in all that and more.

      Otay Lake County Park offers another fascinating trail for nature lovers despite its small size. By following the precise turns and bends, one is rewarded with a beautiful view of the Otay Reservoir and its surrounding hills, making it a favorite spot in the South Bay. 

      A short stretch into the exploration, there is the famous ‘T’ junction from where the Otay River Gorge and surrounding San Ysidro Mountains can be savored. You may also hear some popping sound from a distance emanating from a shooting range. The 1-mile trail is a fair challenge for beginners and allows leashed pets, thus a good activity for the whole family.

      Reason 2: Fishing

      For those who enjoy a beautiful fishing expedition, the park offers casting holes along the trails throughout the park. You can enjoy a peaceful day outdoor while you steadily throw in the hook surrounded by nature.

      Fishing can be done in Lower Otay all day Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays throughout the year. There are set limitations on the minimum size and number of catches per species. Some of the species you are possible to catch are the large-mouth bass, catfish- channel, white and blue, bullhead, and the bluegill. 

      The set limitations spearheading preservation attempts of the water bodies even as the Department of Fish & Game restocks the fish November through March. You must, however, obtain a fishing permit from the concession or at the Iron Ranger pay station payment is by cash. Additionally, a California State Fishing License is compulsory for persons below the age of 16 years.

      Reason 3: Bird Watching

      Otay Mesa attracts more than 200 species of bird all year round. The best spot to enjoy these natural beauties is at the ‘shallow end’ of the Otay Lake. The area is more attractive to ducks and shorebirds, while Clarks and Western Grebes can be seen from any spot along the trail.

      Despite the severe damage on the land by the Otay fire of 2003, the American White Pelicans, Horned Larks and Western Meadowlarks are still seen all year round. Perched raptors tend to rest on dead trees; thus, being on the lookout might payout.

      The facility offers kayaks, rowboats, and motorboats for rentals but allows for private boaters to bring canoes, kayaks and float tubes at a small launch ramp usage fee. There are however, terms and conditions to be adhered to in the event you bring your floater. Some of the basics being that they should have waterproof waders, be orange for visibility, possess a whistle, and spare floating device.

      Any float tube using an oar will require the purchase of a private boat use permit. A driver’s license is a must-show as you pay a deposit for a rental. There is also a fine chargeable for the late return of the rentals to regulate usage and ensure quality services to all customers.

      Reason 5: Eat Out

      The South Bay is furnished with a significant number of restaurants and bars to entertain its residents and visitors. With most establishment operated as family businesses for decades, they have managed to maintain and improve on the quality of services rendered seamlessly.

It customizes every meal to match the occasion whether a grab-n-go snack or a celebratory dinner with family and friends.

      Otay Mesa, San Diego

      This article is about the neighborhood in San Diego. For the borough of Tijuana, see Mesa de Otay. For the border crossing, see Otay Mesa Port of Entry.

      Community of San Diego in California

      Otay Mesa (OH-ty MAY-sə) is a community in the southern section of the city of San Diego, just north of the U.S.–Mexico border.

      It is bordered by the Otay River Valley and the city of Chula Vista on the north; Interstate 805 and the neighborhoods of Ocean View Hills and San Ysidro on the west; unincorporated San Diego County on the north and east including East Otay Mesa and the San Ysidro Mountains; and the Otay Centenario borough of Tijuana, Mexico on the south.

      Major thoroughfares include Otay Mesa Road/California State Route 905, Otay Valley Road/Heritage Road, Siempre Viva Road, and California State Route 125. Otay Mesa is the second-least walkable neighborhood of San Diego.[1]


      Otay is derived from the Kumeyaay language. Although its meaning is disputed,[2] possible derivations include "otai", meaning "brushy"; "Tou-ti" meaning "big mountain";[2] or "etaay" meaning "big".[3]Mesa is the Spanish word for plateau, table or tableland.

      Aviation pioneer John J. Montgomery made the first controlled flights in the western hemisphere using a series of gliders from the west rim of Otay Mesa in 1883/1884.[4][5]

      The area which now includes Otay Mesa was annexed from San Diego County along with other portions of South San Diego in 1957.[6] Additional annexation of almost four thousand acres was approved in 1985.[7]

      Since 2010, seven cross-border tunnels have been found linking Warehouses in Otay Mesa with entry points within Mexico.[8]

      Border crossings[edit]

      The Otay Mesa Port of Entry is one of two border crossings within the city of San Diego, the other being the San Ysidro Port of Entry six miles to the west. Trucks are generally instructed to use the border crossing in Otay Mesa instead of the San Ysidro one. Otay Mesa also houses an immigration detention center.[9]

      Two miles east of the Otay Mesa border crossing in the unincorporated area of East Otay Mesa, the new Otay Mesa East Port of Entry is planned to be in service as early as 2023.

      The Cross Border Xpress (CBX) is a terminal serving and a pedestrian bridge crossing to the main terminal of Tijuana International Airport.[10][11] This crossing has a 45,000-square-foot (4,200 m2) facility in Otay Mesa.[12] It was established by Otay-Tijuana Ventures LLC and had a cost of $78 million and opened in 2015.[13] CBX makes Tijuana Airport the world's first geographically binational airport,[14] because unlike the binational airports serving the Swiss cities of Basel (entirely on French territory) and Geneva (entirely on Swiss territory),[15] the CBX terminal is physically located in the United States but serves an airport whose main terminal and runways are in Mexico.

      Pacific Gateway Park is located between Otay Mesa Road and the international border.[citation needed]

      Five major law-enforcement facilities are located in an unincorporated area in the Otay Mesa region:[18]

      SR 11 / Otay Mesa East overview (English)

      I looked at her beautiful legs again, they were slightly parted. I was seized by an irresistible desire to stroke them, I gently and unhurriedly reached out and touched her leg inside me a pleasant wave of excitement. Emotions were stronger than reason and my palm slowly began to stroke her leg, Alena groaned something in her sleep, I stopped.

      Now discussing:

      Yes, Kiryusha, said Daria first. Carry a feeder. - No, Daryusha, Kirill mimicked a fat woman.
