- Wedding: May 2018
So FI and I haven’t booked yet, but our goal is to finalize stuff on Monday.
My parents are kind enough to gift us with a timeshare for the week and FI really wants to use it. My inclination is to just take a cruise lol, but we’re already doing one in February, so FI isn’t sure he wants to do another one in May.
Our first choice was San Diego(lots of things to do and I’ve always meant to visit it someday and frequent cheap direct flights there), but RCI didn’t have any availability until October, so we looked at the East coast and have been thinking Myrtle Beach would be fun.
So here’s the deal, it just occurred to me to look on the other side of the border and there’s availability in Rosarito just South of Tijuana. Idk, especially with the new travel advisories coming out and it being so close to the border, I do wonder about safety, but also about finding stuff to do since it appears to be a smaller town. Fi and I both speak okay Spanish(I understand it much better than speaking it), but I reckon as tourists most people speak English to me when I travel anyway. I know the violence isn’t directed at tourists, but it would suck to get caught in the crossfire. Plus we definitely want to do some hiking on our honeymoon, so that might take us off the beaten path.
Does anyone know of any fun activities to do in Rosarito? Has anyone visited the area recently?
The sister who lives in the San Diego area said she doesn’t know about it since she never goes down into Mexico.
We want to do a beach day, but Bi and I are pretty active and don’t want to laze away our vacation week.Fi and I love hiking and swimming, although neither of us are scuba certified and the scuba mask makes me a little claustrophobic, so I’m not looking to do scuba things. Fi loves anything with animals, like an animal sanctuary, and I love history, like museums.
Tl;Dr: Looking at Rosarito in Baja California for our honeymoon, but am not sure there’s anything to do there except the beach or if it’s safe.
