I spend 4 day in the beach. Lot of music, drink, food all close to each other. Walk to the pier or enjoy walking the long beach area. Plus rent a horse or 4 well motorcicles

The beach is cleaner than ever before and plenty for everyone to do. If you go futher away from the center of the beach nobody will bother you. Safe and fun. Family had a great time.

This beach was clean, had current music playing, clean restrooms and very timely and courteous service, but people kept bothering us to buy things, have our hair braided, play music for us. Every 5 minutes there were more and more vendors. It was super annoying.

We stayed at La Paloma Resort for a week and walked the beach from the private resort beach property all the way north up to "Papas and Beer" and even further to the "Calimax" supermarket. Whether we walked day or nighttime, there was clean beach fronts and we felt very safe. The only people who "bothered us" were the usual... More

Mexico's heritage sound is Mariachi and their steps are Folkloric. We have attended the Festival Internaional del Mariachi y Ballet Folkloric multiple years. What a fantastic experience. Highlights of the multi-day schedule includes an evening cocktail hour with the stars, a Mariachi and Folkloric competition, and a spectacular evening concert by the ocean featuring world class performers. All held at... More

Just 29 miles north to the San Diego border, I live in a condo on the beach in the center of Rosarito Beach. Live here is nearly stress-free with healthy organic local food raised/grown locally in the hills. It is just as safe as any U.S. city with a population of 189,000. The Policia de Torista are hear to help... More

This was a small town, for decades a stop for travelers between Tijuana and Ensenada. It has grown considerably and now doubles as a Retirement Haven for U.S. & Canadian retirees, and a Party Destination for those who want to be out of the hustle-bustle and population that is Tijuana. The Beaches are ten times cleaner than South Beach in... More

I see no reason to leave california for Rosarito. The beach is smelly, the bars are cheezy, rife with people bugging you to buy the stupidest stuff, I prefer do my shopping in line at the border. I'm looking forward to exploring more of Mexico, Rosarito however is underwelming.

Lots of vendors to buy snacks, fresh fruit, churros, and more. music from beach clubs, plenty of chairs and tables. Horse rides available but they do leave a smell. Yucky restrooms. Lots of families with picnics.
