Welcome to Mexico
From San Diego, California, take Interstate Highway 5 or Interstate 805 south.
This will take you to the San Ysidro, California border crossing (at Tijuana).
There will be various freeway exit signs along the way including one reading "Last
U.S. Exit." and the Interstate the freeway takes
you right into Mexico.
Follow your exit ramp straight ahead as it leads into the road running along the border - the huge border barriers will be on your right. This road goes up a hill sweeps to the left and heads down hill - near the bottom you'll take the right hand exit toward Rosarito / Ensenada.
Up another hill and
then you'll drop down to Playas de Tijuana intersection. Since we are going
to Rosarito Beach we'll follow the road as it curves left.
- Do Not Exit. Keep to
As you continue around the curve, the road will straighten out,
and you will come to the first toll booth (This will be your only toll as if
you get to the next toll booth you have gone too far). A toll fee of $2.25
US dollars (varies slightly depending on exchange rate) will take you all the
way to Rosarito Beach
The remaining portion
of the Toll Road is a four lane divided roadway all the
the worst is now behind you! The remaining part of the trip is “a
piece of cake.” Enjoy the view along the ocean. The 17 mile scenic
trip will take about fifteen minutes.
At Rosarito Beach, there are four exits off the toll road. The
first exit will take your right into town. You'll drive along Benito Juárez
Boulevard (main street) for about two miles to the Downtown area. Avoid city
traffic by staying on the toll road and take the fourth exit under an arch
that welcomes you to Rosarito. This exit takes you directly to
downtown (two short blocks).
Once you exit and go two blocks to the main road of Benito Juarez
(as far as you can go).
Turn to your right and go four blocks. The Oceana Casa del Mar will be visible behind the shops and on the beach.
a left at El Nido Restaurant and go down one block and take a right. This is a one way street and will take you to the gate.
If you miss this turn in front of El Nido, you will have to make a U-turn and get back to it.
