I live in rosarito and go to ensenada often. There are a lot of americans living between those cities. There is crime everywhere but I have never personally experienced any problems. I have lived there since 2001. It is beautiful all along the coast and there are tons of things for you to do. It is very affordable and the people are great.

Nancy asks…

Is Imperial Beach 91932 a good place to live?

hi. i currently live in los angeles but looking to move to san diego. Im male mid twenties. I found a place for rent month to month in Imperial beach (zip:91932). I really wanna be near the beach and the apt i found in imperial beach is really close, but I dont know much about the area. Is it a safe place to live. I know its really close to the mexican border so im a little worried about getting robbed or held for ransom. is 91932 area safe? If you live in the area or are familiar with the 91932 Imperial beach area give me some info so i dont regret making this move.

Tijuana answers:

I always like questions like yours because they contain zip codes and make the researching a lot easier. I tap the crime stats frequently to help other Yahooites get the information they need. In your case, with the rent being affordable for you, I’d say move there.

In all fairness I will concede that IB is the lower end of the beach communities in the San Diego Metro area, but it is relatively safe. The link I provided you with below will show a comparison for crimes committed in Imperial Beach, San Diego and the National Average.

One area to be personally mindful of is Auto Theft. Since SD and IB are so close to the Mexican border your car can be in Ensenada before you wake up in the morning. In addition you will learn that crimes run slightly higher in beach areas due to the transient population visiting the seashore. Many of these crimes are fed by stupid beach visitors. They leave their car unlocked; they leave their cameras on the seat; they drink too much and pee in public; they leave their ground floor windows open at night or when they are not at home.

Take common sense measures to protect yourself and your property and you will be fine. Get a kill switch put on your vehicle. Put a deadbolt on your door. Get windows that lock with metal insert pins so they can’t suction-cup-lift the glass out of the sliding window track. In other words, idiot proof your environment with the hopes of the world not building a bigger idiot.

If you’re scraping by and not driving a red Porsche I don’t forsee anyone kidnapping you. Don’t walk among groups of riff-raff at night in dimly lit areas. That’s a surefire way to get robbed anywhere in the world. Heck, you probably know this stuff already so get out there and practice it.

The stats are a little dated because they come from the lagging FBI reports.
