Lizzie asks…

Beach resort – awesome hotels – in mexico – driving distance from california?

All. Am looking for info about beach resorts or awesome hotels in baja california mexico. Want to take GF. Should be pretty classy – preferably on beach – preferably near town where we can go for excitement at night. Advice appreciated. P

Tijuana answers:

Try Puerto Peñasco is like 300 miles away, in Sonora Ensenada also or if you like to go further try Loreto in Baja but its a quite town not very much to do at night.

Helen asks…

Road trips to Mexico Baja California Norte?

I am thinking of making a road trip, driving from San Diego, to a Mexico beach town in Baja California Norte. I know there are bigger beach towns like Rosarito and Ensenada – are they nice? Is there anywhere in between that is a lesser-known place to stay? I am not on a budget and would prefer to stay somewhere nice as I am planning a romantic weekend with my boyfriend. Has anyone visited and have good recommendations on where to stay?

Tijuana answers:

Los Rocas hotel just before Ensenada ..
Coral hotel and Marina in Ensenada…Make sure u stop at Calfia hotel on the way down for the margaritas and view. They are accessible from the toll road hwy 1. Check the internet on these hotels they have web sites. These places may not be in the area u want to go but if u are looking for a romantic weekend u can’t beat them
