The City of Rosarito Beach is a coastal resort style city in Baja California. It is located approximately 20 minutes south of the International/U.S. Border.
Rosarito has long been a popular place for California off-roaders, surfers going down for a few days and people just wanting to get away for a while and spend some time at the beach in Mexico.
Recently there has been a construction boom that is attracting baby boomers to Rosarito. This has changed the personality of the town. It is a place where people are coming to retire and with them they are bringing pieces of what they left behind, which is transforming Rosarito into a city with multicultural charm. In the future Rosarito will be a great city that can be enjoyed by every age group. It will have a mixed population of Mexicans and Gringos living together and bringing to it the best of both worlds.
You can’t compare the value you will receive when you purchase real estate in this area. The cost drops from 30% to 50% compared to prices just 50 miles north of Rosarito. It’s cheaper than Cabo, and much less expensive than California, and because of its proximity to the United States you get the best of both worlds. The weather is the same as San Diego’s, which is one of the most desirable cities to live in on the west coast.
