Rosarito is a coastal resort city in the Mexican state of Baja California situated approximately 10 miles south of the U.S. border in Rosarito Beach Municipality. Frequently mistakenly called Rosarito Beach because of the well–known Rosarito Beach Hotel, the town of Rosarito is one part of the municipality named Playas de Rosarito (“Seashores of Rosarito”).
Its seashores, latina escorts and dance clubs are a popular destination for younger people from the United States during the Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends. Rosarito Beach is the seat of the municipality of Rosarito Beach. The city is the second biggest in the Tijuana metropolitan area and southern beach city of the San Diego–Tijuana worldwide metropolitan area.
It is the westernmost municipal seat in Mexico, somewhat farther west than neighboring Tijuana, which lies inland to its north-northeast. As of 2010, the city had a population of 65,278.
Rosarito has historically been centered on tourism and Rosarito escorts. It started with the Ortiz family’s establishment of Rene’s (Bar, Restaurant, Trailer Park and Motel) in 1925. Rene served his town holding the place Delegado (Mayor) a lot more than any other politician in Rosarito. Rene, a prominent businessman, helped produce Rosarito from a ranch to a town which later became a city. When Rene was not ready to serve his people any longer he chose as his successor Hugo Torres Chabert, a good friend and proprietor of Hotel Rosarito. In September 1996, James Cameron’s production group moved to the newly developed Fox Baja Studios in Rosarito, in which a full scale RMS Titanic had been constructed for the 1997 movie, in which Fox acquired 40 acres of waterfront south of Rosarito Beach.
