Garbage was everywhere washed up on the sand, vendors were overly aggressive and annoying, opportunistic thieves everywhere, didn't feel very safe here.

A beachside community just south of the US/Mexico border This former Spring Break haven is now the home of a large ex-pat community who enjoy the lower prices, great food, and friendly people rich in Mexican culture and traditions.

The sea food is decadent, we arrived just as the sun was setting - a very lovely end to a perfect day.

Beautiful and peaceful place... We bought some traditional Mexican food and decided to have a little picnic on the beach. It was the end of our long road trip across USA so all of us were feeling pretty tired... But the last lunch together on this beach before our flights back home was like cherry on top. Beautiful view, amazing... More

We love this part of Mexico and visit regularly. Unfortunately our stay at the Las Olas Spa & Resort was horrible and we will never stay there again.

I've never had any problems. As in the U.S., hang with the wrong crowd i.e. drugs. You're playing with fire here. More expatriates are moving here. The new, young, educated Federalies are 85% former Marines and corrupt free, finally.

Rosarito has evolved considerable since its days or nights of wild drunken debauchery by the gringo college students from the US.

We came down for the day of the dead celebration on Halloween weekend. We stayed at the Rosarito Bch Hotel & partied at Papas & Beer! Good times with good friends without the extreme crowds that are often here during the summer and major U.S. Holidays.

Daytime is great. Blue ocean, surfers,kids playing,people exercising. Night time not so safe esp. for women that are alone as I was followed 2 times in one month. But the sunsets are different each and every night then usually on weekends, fireworkd and bonfires, a lot of couples and the MOON lights up the ocean and it looks like Heaven.

There is a just a vibe I feel when I'm there. i just don't feel safe and you have vendors constantly trying to persuade you to visit their establishment. I know this happens in various places of the country, but there are better places to visit in baja.
