We were travelling by car in 2008, family of four, two kids ages 3 and 6, having drove down down from Victoria British Columbia, because of a kids' roller hockey tournament in San Jose, CA, then afterward we just kept driving south in to Disney Land, then we thought, why not Mexico?
We were warrned not to travel through Tijuana, but did so during broad daylight and saw no trouble anywhere in town.
Having driven down twice previously (once when I was about 10 and then at age 21), Rosarito is about 20 minutes south of Tijuana, and consists of a grocery store, run down hotels, several plaza type business operations having sundry stores, parmachias, t shirt shops accross the street, bars, etc all along a 4 or 5 lighted intersections patrolled by brand new dodge charger police cars driven by 20 yr old policemen and the ever so omninous pickup trucks loaded with with machine gunner Federals, La Palomoa is gated and safe. refuse from the madness.
We approached reception unnanounced and easily obtained a three night rental which was very nice. Recommended.
