Friday & Saturday's you can find a parking place on Benito Juarez, things are not so crazy on those days as they were in the past. Locals happy to greet and serve you.

the beach is....just a beach. nothing special. the water was pretty cold. the beach was pretty dirty. it's very hard to sit on the beach and relax when you're being asked constantly by people to buy something from them. it's also hard to relax when there's nearby horses and you can smell their feces. the beach is a little more...

They have really cleaned this place up. It has a lot of new places I haven't tried yet. Great city to visit for value and shopping, eating adventures.

I ate breakfast there two or three times and it was wonderful. You got large portions and very reasonably priced. The food was very good and the service was excellent.

What's to say, the beach is expansive, white and clean. Vendors everywhere prodding you but it is Mexico...

The best rooms are in the Towers which are newer and quite lovely. The historic hotel sits on the finest beach front in Rosarito and is a real gem.

I live right off the Beach in Carlsbad, California. The beaches here are clean, beautiful, regulated, and then regulated some more, for that sterile American goodness we all love. Just 45 minutes south is Rosarito beach. Quick run down the 5, some craziness in TJ, and a straight shot down the 1D toll road to Rosarito. Chock full of restaurants,... More

Have you ever had a chance to savour seafood straight from the source? This is a rather remarkable experience to have in Popotla, an authentic fisherman village located a few miles South of Rosarito Beach in Baja California. Observe the seamen coasting, offloading their treasures on the beach and offering it to you in their rustic stands. Before leaving the... More
