Rosarito Beach Hotel

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

Lots of clubs and loud music. Tons of shopping and many restaurants. Horseback riding, parasailing and beach cantinas.

If you go to Rosarito you can't miss visiting the craft market, is it very good, you can find all kinds of jewelry, and most of all paints. They are "fake" paints as they are copies of famous paintings but if you want something to add to your home that is not a lithograph you will find it there, they... More

Beaches are definitely not an attraction in winter. But happened to be in Tijuana in 2014 December and thought of going to this beach. The beach just had horse riding and few street vendors selling various food items, bracelets and necklaces. We tried spicy dried mango for 20 pesos and it was yummy. We could bargain with the horsemen as... More

If you want to visit a Mexican type beach and getaway and eat some good seafood, some good beers and all at low prices, then Rosarito beaches are only 20 min away from the Tijuana border. Definitely recommend it plus it is a pretty safe tourist destination.
