A short drive south from Rosarito Beach, this small town is known for lobster and fresh seafood. There are many restaurants and the locals are very dependent on tourism and will try their best to earn your business. There is a "fancier" restaurant located in the southwestern corner of the town-square that overlooks the water (indoor and outdoor seating available). However, there are a number of different options, check inside, check the menu for prices and see if you like the spot before deciding. Shop around from the numerous locals selling goods, anything from ceramics, artwork to custom rings and more! Enjoy your stay and make sure that you don't buy anything illegal... I was once offered some pot, etc. But I haven't felt unsafe here in any of my many trips with family and friends.Recommended for:

Each trip to Rosarito should include a meal at Puerto Nuevo. At most of the restaurants the lobsters come out split and cooked, with the halves stacked on a platter, served family style. The traditional way to cook them is deep frying, but they are available grilled or steamed upon request. At the last lobster meal this writer enjoyed in Puerto Nuevo, nine halves were served for three of us. Beans, rice and tortillas are also served from bowls on the table, with drawn butter and salsa also to be passed around. Plenty is available for refills of the supplemental delight, and the price runs about $ 13.00 per serving unless larger sizes are requested. For parties, enormous specimens are available for a specified price.
