I have not been to Rosarito in over 5 years and we decided to go as a last minute get away for the day. Hours kinda nervous since we had heard all of the commotion in the past of the murders, drug deals, and other crazy events. However needless to say it has changed for the best. We went down... More

Rosarito beach is a great family getaway spot, it's kept clean and patrolled by local (Bomberos) firemen for safety, there is also a security force present for beachgoers. Alcohol is permitted, I'm not sure about campfires except in designated areas. If you don't like crowds of people having a good time then the months of December through May will be... More

I was very disappointed in the area of Rosarito Beach. Leaving our condo at Calafia, we had to go through a security check manned by security armed with assault rifles to get to Rosarito Beach. It certainly made me nervous!!! Plus the area seemed to be very depressed. On the beach, which was lovely, every 2 minutes somebody was trying... More

One of the best parts of Rosarito Beach is THE BEACH! It is wide and long with white sand and is free for all to use. Locals come here to cool off. The water temps are a tad cool by San Diego standards. When it is 70' in San Diego, it is usually 65' in Rosarito. That is because of... More

During the last few visits I have really noticed that the water and the beach have been so much cleaner. The folks that own the horses have been cleaning up after them, which makes all of the difference in the world.

Love to wake up early and walk the beach. I feel very safe when I'm here . Lots of other tourists and locals are out there every morning.

If you have been to world class resorts, this is not one of them. It's a beach and beaches are hard to come by when looking for a decent hotel. Most are on rocky cliffs. But if you are out for shopping, tequila, beer and tacos, have fun. You have found a very cost effective location to have fun.
