Every year around 50 million people cross the San Ysidro border crossing that connects Tijuana with the US city of San Diego. In addition to Mexicans and Americans, citizens from all over Latin America and from remote corners of the planet use this international transit point.

Mexico is a country of contrasts in every way, just as it is said that Chiapa de Corzo, in Chiapas is one of the oldest cities in Latin America, on the other hand, there are young places like Rosarito, which became one of the destinations favorites of surfers and those who love the beach.

Rosarito, Baja California is located 30 minutes from Tijuana by road and an hour from Ensenada and San Diego, California, that is why many travelers from the United States adopted this place as their weekend destination to surf and return home with a good tan.

The climate in Rosarito is one of its main attractions since it is warm and sunny throughout the year, its summers are dry, so it is an ideal place to vacation without worrying about rain. In autumn the presence of the Santa Ana Winds is common, which are extremely dry air currents typical of the northern part of Mexico and southern California, United States.

Rosarito is a city where you can practice water sports almost all year round. One of its main economic activities is film and television since here are the Baja Studios film studios where films such as Titanic, Pearl Harbor, Planet of the Apes and television series such as Fear of the Walking Dead have been filmed. .
