Tecate is an unincorporated community in the Mountain Empire area of southeastern San Diego County, California, directly adjacent to the Mexican city of Tecate, Baja California. The area is best known for its border crossing between the United States and Mexico, and nearby Tecate Peak.
Even though San Diego has communities more southern than Tecate, the city proper is located at a more northern latitude, making Tecate the southernmost settlement in the state of California.
