Baja California Comments

Rosarito is very safe. If you are not looking for trouble, you will not find it. Everyone is really friendly and if you get away from the tourist areas, food and merchandise are inexpensive. They also have a great beach.
I have always had a great time in Rosarito. I have not been there in seven years, but I plan to go next month.
I've been to Tijuana all by myself and I'm a single female. I went during the day and pretty much stayed to the areas deemed "safe" by the advice of San Diego Tourism and US Navy recommended areas. I had a great time! I was serenaded by a Mariachi band and drank some amazing margarita's. I have traveled all over alone so you can take a tour bus if it feels safer. I hope to eventually retire to Mexico if the drug cartel problem is contained. You can live there for real cheap! ¡Viva México!
If you like to eat out (in good places) there's a section in Tijuana called "zona gastronomica" where all the well known restaurants are situated from Argentinian food (cheripan) to Japanese (negai) to Italian (saberios) and Mexican (la querencia), by the way these restaurants offer great drinks too and they are very "chic."
Rosarito sucks! Everybody is after your money. Waiters don´t even say thank you when tip them. Police will hunt tourists, asking for bribes for no reason -- even the possession of rolling papers can get you in jail. This city is a nightmare -- the only city that is worse is Tijuana, don´t get me started!
Rosarito is an awesome place to visit. Things have really turned around in a very short time. The sales people are a bit pushy, but what can you expect from a town that relies chiefly on tourists to survive? The food at the restaurants are great. The police are trying hard to keep the drugs off the streets. It is a town like any other town -- it has its share of ups and downs, but all in all it is a great place to visit, and maybe even to live in. I would live there! I love it there.
