Rosarito Beach is a Mexican resort town that’s about 30 minutes south of San Diego. Known for its beaches and nightlife, Rosarito’s close proximity to the border makes it a popular destination for US visitors and retirees. Hollywood is fond of the area, too. A number of films, including Titanic and Pearl Harbor, were filmed in Rosarito.
While in Rosarito, set aside some time to sample the local cuisine, check out the Baja Studios movie set, and visit the historic Rosarito Beach Hotel. Opened in 1924, the hotel has hosted movie stars and presidents. Visitors can also surf, sportfish, ride horses or ATVs on the beach, golf at some of Mexico's best courses, and more. Just 20 minutes from downtown, Popotla Fishing Village offers no-frills beachfront dining with sweeping ocean views.
