OPTIONAL ROUNDTRIP SHUTTLE TRANSPORTATION BY BUS:
If a shuttle is available on the dates that you are traveling,
you will have the option to add it on to your reservation
at time of booking or any time after as long as it is available.
Shuttle is available only to prepaid customers
and cannot be boarded on a walk up basis under any circumstances!
You must purchase a package to ride.
The shuttle schedule below is available on a prepaid, reserved
basis only in conjunction with a Rosarito Spring Break 2008
package. click here for details
Rosarito is a snap. Unless, of course, you have someone in the
back seat who feels compelled to constantly shout out instructions
on how you should drive. In that case, leave that person behind
in the driveway and you'll have a lot more fun. If you would
rather you can also take one of our Shuttles!
Buy coverage for however many days you will be in Baja - rates
are around $10 per day.

Take the 5 or 805 freeway south to the U.S. - Mexico border
crossing). Both freeways end at the border so take your pick.
Hint: the 5 seems quicker with more things to look at, the 805
is kind of boring but faster if you happen to be on the road
around rush hour. As you cross into Mexico follow the signs
that say Rosarito - Ensenada Toll Road / Cuota or Scenic Toll
Road. Rosarito is just under 20 miles from the border.
scenic toll highway is well maintained and safe for driving.
However, if you are driving at night keep your speed at a safe
rate (speed limits are posted in kilometers) and keep an eye
open for critters in the road. The road is well marked, just
follow the green signs to the first toll booth. The toll is
currently around $2.00 U.S. You won't need exact change (they
have plenty) but you must pay your toll in one currency - they
don't accept mixed monies (like dollars and pesos).
Rosarito has 4 exits from the toll road. Any exit will take
you directly to Boulevard Juarez which runs smack down the middle
of town from beginning to end. For convenience, take the final
exit just before the 2nd toll booth (through the white arch).
The exit ramp / street goes for three blocks and ends
at the main boulevard. Turn right and you are in downtown Rosarito.
You will see Festival Plaza on the third block down, left hand
side. Look for the hotel that appears to have a roller coaster
on the front. Hey, we're pretty hard to miss.
Visitors to the northern part of Baja California do NOT need
passports or tourist cards if staying in Rosarito Beach. If
you plan to stay longer or travel beyond Ensenada, you'll need
to obtain a tourist card.; proof of U.S. citizenship is required.
Auto Insurance: If you plan to take your car into Mexico,
you must purchase Mexican automobile insurance prior to crossing
the border (click
here for the best prices). Most U.S. policies are not valid
in Mexico. In the unfortunate event of an accident, only a Mexican
insurance policy will be recognized as valid.

NOTE: If you happen to miss the 4th exit (we told you to leave
the backseat driver at home) don't panic. You'll know you missed
it if you happen upon the 2nd toll booth. Just before the toll
booth is AM/PM (bow down to the Big Gulp!) whose parking lot
is bordered by the toll road on one side and the free road on
the other. Cut across the parking lot to the free road and make
a right. Just follow the signs less than one mile back into
town; the free road becomes Boulevard Juarez.
