A taxi from the border to the Rosarito Beach Hotel, which is about a block from La Paloma is $20-$25.00 each way. There are buses which are less expensive, but of course, you are tied to their schedule, and they will not take you to the hotel or La Paloma; they will let you off at the gas station just off the toll road and then you walk through the station area and cross the road to La Paloma. In addition, there are "shared taxis," station wagons or vans that operate sort of like buses: they travel a set route between Tijuana and Rosarito and stop to pick up/let people off anywhere along the route. They are less than taxis, more than buses--but they also go much, much more frequently.

For convenience, renting a car is the way to go. It will be about $30.00 a day (less than a taxi to and from Tijuana), and of course, you choose the time you go and come. Driving is perfectly safe: 4 lane, concrete, divided toll road (about $1.25 each way.

Going to La Paloma in January and need to travel back and forth to tijuana for dental work. Flying into San Diego and crossing border on foot. Any tips from anyone who might know the cheapest way to get to the resort? Thanx for your help.

This is a 10 minute promotional video on Baja (San Diego to Ensenada), and it is, I think, very well done. It has some great shots of the scenery, activities, and interviews with some winery owners and Americans living/visiting the area. Thought some considering the area might enjoy looking at it.

Except for Pstreet1's relatively recent post about it being safe to go to Mexico in December, nothing else has been updated. Are the roads and turns the same as in 2004? And what about the "aggressive" driving advice - is that true or untrue?

Thanks, Pstreet1, for showing Americans that it's safe to go to Mexico!

Since they're offering as an inventory special for March, how to get there seems important. Should one fly in to San Diego or Tijuana? Should one rent a car or is there other transport? If one rents a car in Tijuana, what does one need to do that?

Should one exchange for pesos in Mexico? If so, how much cash should we have in hand? (In the States, I rarely carry cash.)

And if one is relatively fluent in Spanish, is that helpful? Are there places that are less touristy?

Thanks in advance for any tips or tricks!
