ROSARITO BEACH TRAVEL- WHAT TO DO
Rosarito Beach Shopping
What is a trip to Mexico without a little bit of shopping? There is an excellent but somewhat hidden artisan Mercado just up the street from Festival Plaza Hotel in Rosarito Beach. Goods include wrought iron goods, blown glass, wood carvings and numerous other traditional Mexican art pieces. The next time you travel to Rosarito Beach, make sure to set aside an afternoon for the unique and plentiful shopping options.
One of the most popular activities in and around Rosarito Beach is surfing. Northern Baja has some excellent breaks including Baja Malibu, Calafia, K38 1/2, Salsipuedes and San Miguel. Check out the detailed report of Baja surfing
in the Rosarito area. Once away from the Rosarito Beach resorts, the beaches and scenery becomes wilder and more scenic- many Baja surf spots are completely empty.
Ride Horses or ATV's in Rosarito
Yes, Rosarito Beach is covered with all terrain vehicles and horses. While this does not necessarily bode well for the scenery it can make for some fun activities. You can usually rent either at the beach in front of Papa's and Beer. Hours of entertainment can be had, either with the thrill of flying across the sand in front of the line of Rosarito resorts, or by trotting along on horseback in this Baja California paradise.
Northern Mexico Wine Country Tour
A unique part of Rosarito travel is the wine tasting opportunity. The valleys of Calafia, Guadalupe and San Antonio de las Minas are the heart of the wine country tour that extends also to the north to the Valley of the Palmas and to the south to the Valleys of St. Tomas and San Vicente Ferre. Baja California is very underrated as a wine-producing region and many Rosarito travelers don't take advantage of the opportunity to visit a Mexican winery.
Baja Bicycle Ride
Travel to Baja California for this award-winning, 50 mile bicycle ride along the Pacific Coast and inland through rural countryside from Rosarito Beach to Ensenada. Leaving the resorts of Rosarito Beach behind you, amazing cliffs and stunning ocean scenery await you on your cycle south. Traveling in Baja California by bicycle is the best way to experience the beauty of the desert scenery up close.
Whale Watching off Rosarito Beach
The gray whale is the most common species seen near the coast of Rosarito, Mexico. Other whales are present but tend to seek deeper waters while the gray whale's swim in shallow waters seeking Baja's many laggons for calving. Many whales travel near Rosarito as they pass by and one can see spouts from the beach. Witness this prehistoric migration up close and personal next time you travel to Rosarito and Baja California.
Baja's Foxploration Fox Studio
Foxploration is an exciting addition to Fox Studios Baja, a one-of-a-kind movie park. Foxploration allows visitors to discover tricks of the film making process within the context of a working movie studio. The blockbuster "Titanic" was filmed at the Fox Studios Baja, which are only a few minutes from Rosarito Beach and definitely worth checking out. Ask the concierge at your Rosarito resort, and they will be able to inform you of the current events and hours of operation at Fox Studios Baja.
