I've been there twice now, but the overwhelming amount of small shop owners trying to get you to buy stuff really gets old. I do like to shop around seeing many shops in the market and the one guy I bought some jewelry from was very nice. I also understand the hustle and I didn't have as bad of view... More

We stayed at the "Los Pelicanos" hotel so were right at the beach. Even if you are not on the beach it is worth the short walk to get there from the main drag. It was a bit cool the day we were there but the beaches were almost empty. I recommend.

Brought my twenty something stepdaugher and her friend who were visiting us in San Diego down to Baja for a few days. The girls enjoyed the shopping, fun atmosphere and great food and drinks we had. They were not used to the pushiness of the vendors but I explained they just need to say no politely and move on. It... More

Escape the police state to the north and enjoy freedom again! Friendly, super affordable on any budget and absolutely outstanding food choices from street vendors to fine dining, all at a fraction of the cost in San Diego. Most of all though is the peaceful easy feeling this beach town provides, a lot like California beach towns so many decades... More

We decided to check out the beach in Rosarito and LOVED IT. We started out by taking a 30 minute horseback ride along the beach and it was beautiful. After our ride we sat on the beach and had a beer and took in some sun. It was a beautiful day and AWESOME experience.

I am not sure that riding ATVs and having horses share a beach is ecologically sound. When you add to that tourists and locals dumping their beer bottles, exploded fireworks and other garbage ... the result is less alluring. This could be a darling place and one where oen may be tempted to swim with a wet suit, if the... More

We decided to take a trip down the coast our first visit to Mexico. A friend had mentioned this town so we decided to go. We forgot it was spring break. Before we secured a taxi at the border crossing we received some advice from a local who was heading to the US. He said the trip by cab should... More

There are lots of vendors, palapa roof restaurants, and bars. Great flat beach for a low tide walk, jet ski rentals, horseback riding tours, and two for one margaritas. Beautiful sunset!
