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.


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!
