Just for fun... Rosarito Beach, Northern Baja #1
This post is just for fun.
My wife and I own several weeks of timeshare, and we use them. When I bought my first week, 15 plus years ago, the salesman gave me a book: How to get the most out of your timeshare. Simple title, but simply good information that has helped us leverage our purchase (wholesale) into lots of good times in good places. Places like La Paloma Resort in Northern Baja California, Mexico.
An hour south of the border along the Pacific Coast, La Paloma sits just south of the town of Rosarito Beach. This is where Kate Winslow stayed during the shooting of Titanic, which was filmed at Fox-ploration Studios 10 miles further south. This resort is mostly populated by white color Mexican Nationals. It's gated, guarded, beautifully landscaped, and the full-time staff are really nice. Without the wonder of timeshare, I would not be staying a week at a time is such lovely surroundings.
Rosarito Beach also has lots of wonderful eateries, and after our third or fourth visit we started to feel comfortable grocery shopping, driving up and down the coast, and using the Mexican currency.
We haven't been to Rosarito for a couple of years, but we went almost every April for four of five years. We've taken friends and family along for the trip, and whoever has gone with us has enjoyed themselves. So here, I'll share a bit with you via the magic of photography...
