About
Rosarito Beach is a popular surf spot in Baja Mexico that you may recognize from several Hollywood films. Here, you can catch some waves, go diving and snorkeling, or simply relax on the sandy beach with a cold cerveza. You can even explore the beach on horseback or join a fun ATV tour. When it's time to eat, check out the Benito Juarez main street for some delicious and affordable tacos. There's also a hotel that's located right on the beach. Rosarito Beach is a great place to visit year-round, but it can get crowded during the summer months. – Tripadvisor

It's definitely a fun vibe and so many things to do there, however, if you're looking to relax on the sand, look elsewhere. There's horse poop by the shore due to the horseback rides offered there. I wish they would clean it up. I would not feel comfortable letting my kids play there or feel relaxed watching horses crap. Other than that, it's a fun a loud vibe.

Can't wait to go back, the town is super colorful, full of fun bars and yummy places to eat. Everything is walking distance, I felt safe with my girls, it was a great experience! We stayed at the Festival Plaza, great spot!

We stayed at the Rosarito Beach Hotel for two weeks and walked the beach every day. The sand was easy to walk on and we loved the sound of the crashing waves. There were quite a few vendors but were good about accepting no gracias. There were also a couple of restaurants that were fun to stop at and have a margarita or two while sitting at a table with our feet in the sand. At the far end of each end of the beach there was a water channel that flowed into the ocean. This did not smell good and was the only downside to the beach.

Hotel is in very bad shape, rooms are falling apart and need renovations ASAP. they advertise WIFI which they don't have and housekeeping does a terrible job; they DO NOT clean the rooms. You call Front desk for help and they only respond with sorry we are understaffed. Also they charge as if they were a decent 4 to 5 star hotel, but they only barely scratch a 1 star rating. Lastly the food in the restaurant is ok but it appears the chef does not know what salt is.

6 of my friends will be attending the Baja Beach fest near Papas and Beer in August and we’re concerned with the drive from Rosarito back to Las Gaviotas at night. The festival ends at 12:30 am and the drive is approximately 20 minutes. Should we take highway 1D and pass through the tolls? Or drive back using highway 1? Unfortunately we couldn’t find any available rooms near papas and beer and want to avoid staying in Tijuana.

Lots of people, fruit, clamato, coconut, and many other things for sale. Back to normalcy feeling! A place for old and young travelers. Soak in the good vives and mexican culture.

My wife and I have lived in Rosarito Beach for 3 years now. No issues with crime or anything negative. I go in the water all of the time and no problems. You can't go in going north of RB from about Baja Malibu. Raw sewage comes out at Real Del Mar about K 12, and flows north to Playas de Tijuana and then into Imperial Breach and Coronado, but mostly during the winter months when it rains.

We live a mile south of the actual city of RB and I've never had any sickness or anything after going in the water during winter and now spring. Looking forward to warmer water this summer, and I'll be in the water daily! Great, safe place, but we usually don't go out at night, where there's a log of drinking and stuff we don't need.

I loved the long sandy beach ideal for horse back riding and drinking the margaritas you buy from the different bars there.
