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.

Staying 5 weeks on Rosarito Beach is definitely a glorious holiday. We were lucky enough to stay on the peaceful end of the beach, no sellers, and plenty of beach to walk and relax

Nice beach to go and do surfing or just hang out. If you go just a few miles further, then you get the most amazing beaches!

I feel terrible giving bad reviews. Worse though, I'm angered when visit a place based on b.s. reviews. If time-share owners and expats want to improve this place- tricking people is not the way to do it. The beach was good for one thing and that was jogging/walking. I stayed at Rosarito Beach Hotel (see my review). Left beach of... More

Get brunch at Hotel Restaurant Los Pelicanos with a gorgeous view of Rosarito Beach and then, walk over to the shacks. Walk up to Clubiggys for a drink and enjoy the sun with some crazy-sick-awesome trance-edm ! Best way to spend a day in Rosarito, by far. You could also ride horses on this beach - there are 10-15 horses... More

Don't believe the News. Mexico is now as safe as any other country in the world. Roasrito, just 20 miles south of Tijuana, beach is a very nice, very inexpensive and a very safe getaway from from the hectic life of Southern California. It has almost all the covienences of the USA but almost none of the hassle. All the... More
