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.
Rosarito is still safe. I've been there a few times this year and have come back happy every time. I love it!
Rosarito is a real cool place to visit as well as stay, and has a great nightlife even in the slow periods. The people are real friendly too.
I have always had a great time in Rosarito. I have not been there in seven years, but I plan to go next month.
Every time I've been there I have a blast. A hint for the tourist -- don't act like one and don't carry anything you don't want them to take from you.
This town is dead. It's owned by the drug lords. In January 2007, the army moved in to restore order.
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 a cool safe city with a crazy inexpensive nightlife. I hooked up with people at the hostel and had a blast! I ended up staying a coupleof months!
