travel // mexico with natasha!

Tuesday, April 3, 2012

hi friends! today we have one of my fellow san diegans / travel lover.  it seems like natasha has been around the world, she's always off to some new exotic vacation location.  i'm so excited to have her here to share one of her favorite spring travel destinations!  be sure to check out her blog too - she has tons of great travel tips!!


Hi everyone! 
My name is Natasha, 
and the name of my blog rings true to my heart – 
I really am in love with San Diego, 
my beautiful home town. 

When Kelsey first asked me to guest post on her blog about my favorite destination for spring, 
I immediately wanted to brag about San Diego. 
my most recent trip has totally inspired me, 
and left me craving more. 
So let’s get to it, 
shall we? 

When I think of Spring Break, 
the first place that always come to mind is… 
Today I’m going to share with you my tips for your next trip to Rosarito. 

Where to stay: 
If you're looking for a relaxing experience, 
drive just a few miles past Rosarito, 
and stay at Las Rocas
This is where we stayed last weekend, 
and I cannot say enough great things about the place! 
We were treated like royalty the whole time, 
the rooms are beautiful (ours had this amazing vaulted ceiling), 
there are two infinity pools overlooking the pacific ocean, 
the food at the onsite restaurant is bomb, 
and did I mention there's a karaoke bar? 
Yeah buddy.

If you're looking to party, 
your best bet is to stay smack dab in the middle of the strip, 
The huzband and I stayed here way back in the day, 
when we were first dating. 
It's a fun spot right on the beach, 
and is walking distance to most bars and restaurants.

Where to eat: 
If you're a seafood lover, 
Puerto Nuevo will be your new heaven. 
Drive just a few minutes past Rosarito, 
and you'll find yourself in the "Lobster Capital of Baja". 
Whenever we're down there, 
we head straight to Villa Ortegas
Stunning views and affordable prices will keep you coming back too! 
For about $20 you can indulge in fresh buttery lobster, 
rice, beans, amaaaazing tortillas and a whole lot more. 
I'm telling you, 
this place is a MUST! 

What to do: 
Well besides the obvious beach-side activities, 
there's plenty to do in Rosarito. 
Wine tasting in Valle de Guadalupe is simply amazing, 
and you can always do the touristy options of horseback riding on the beach, 
or renting jet skis and kayaks.

One thing that we didn't get to do this time around, 
but that I'm really looking forward to during our next venture, 
is the movie tour of Fox Studios, 
located right there, in the middle of Rosarito. 
Oh yeah, 
did you know that Titanic and Pirates of the Caribbean were filmed there? 
So awesome.. can't wait to check it out! 

I hope that I’ve convinced you to visit Rosarito for yourself. 
Stop by my blog when you get a chance – I post Thursday Travel Tips weekly about all kinds of destinations, and would love to hear what you think!
