The Best Hotels in Rosarito, Mexico in 2024

Rosarito Beach is a hidden gem of a resort town on the coast of Mexico’s beautiful Baja California Peninsula.

Most travelers are drawn to Rosarito for its beautiful beaches. Rosarito can be a quick and easy getaway since it is a short drive to the US border crossings.

Once upon a time, this was a getaway for the Hollywood elite, but today it’s known as a nightlife and spring break destination for U.S. visitors due to its proximity to the border.

Read this blog to learn all about some of the very best hotels that our TierOne Travel Consultants recommend in Rosarito, Mexico!
