Rosarito Beach, Baja California, Rosarito Beach, Ba
I'm planning a trip down to Rosarito over MLK weekend, since most of us have the day off Monday. We did this trip a couple of years ago and had an awesome time! We'll carpool from Costa Mesa and drive down Saturday, late morning. Stay in a large ocean-front suite (2 ppl per room) Sat & Sun nights, and then drive back Monday afternoon. You must send payment to [masked] via Paypal when you RSVP, which covers the cost of the hotel (for both nights) and gas/driving to/from Rosarito. The cost is $170 per person (for a suite), or $135 per person for a regular room. I highly recommend the suite- it's worth the extra money for the extra space and better location.
The hotel has 2 swimming pools (one is an infinity pool overlooking the ocean), 3 jacuzzis, a spa, a restaurant, a sports bar, free WiFi, and some fabulous views of the coastline. Every room has a fireplace (suites only) and a patio or balcony with an ocean-front view.
We'll head down to Puerto Nuevo one night for some shopping and a lobster dinner, and we'll head into downtown Rosarito and/or Tiujana one night (depending on what everyone wants to do) for some nightlife.
Don't forget to pay when you RSVP, and don't forget to bring your passport! Looking forward to a great time :)
Is Rosarito safe? yes. I have been many times over the years and never had a problem. Those who are afraid of the drug cartel violence simply don't know what they are talking about- the violence is only in certain areas. They do not target American tourists, and the violence does not affect the tourist areas. However, if you try to buy drugs from a guy in a dark, sketchy part of Tiujana one night and then refuse to pay him, then you may encounter some violence.
What does the cost include? The cost is per person, based on double occupancy (2 people per room). It includes cost of the hotel and transportation. It does not include food, drinks, etc.
Who will I room with? If you are coming alone, then we will set you up with a same-sex roommate who is also going on the trip.
When do I have to pay? Your reservation is not confirmed until you pay. Merely RSVPing on this page does not confirm your reservation. The prices may go up, if the hotel increases its rates. You are encouraged to submit your payment as soon as possible.
How do I use Paypal? You must go to www.paypal.com to submit your payment. Once you login, just click on "Send Money". Send your payment to [masked] and select "I'm sending money to family or friends." There are no additional fees if you have linked your Paypal account to your bank account. However, Paypal will charge you a $5.25 fee if you use a credit card instead.
What if I have additional questions? Feel free to send me a message at this link: www.meetup.com/message/?recipientId=[masked].
