Things to do in Baja:
Baja abounds with restaurants, shops, art galleries, beaches, spas and activities. Less than one-half mile north of Las Ventanas is the little village of Puerto Nuevo, the famous “Lobster Village” with dozens of open-air shops and lobster of course! Baja has a host of day and nighttime activities all year round.
Day Spas - While there are many wonderful and relaxing spas along the coast, my favorite is Spa Ventana al Mar located at Bobby’s Baja Resort in Puerto Nuevo.
Shopping – So many wonderful choices! In 10 minutes by the free road, you are on the way to Rosarito, with hundreds of art, silver, clothing, ceramics, sculpture, furniture, stone, iron shops, and more for miles. Starting at Fox Studios (K32.8 on the free road) to the south of Rosarito and continuing north through town, you will find local artists, treasures and craftsmen as well as pieces from all over Mexico. Stores in Rosarito, like Accents de Mexico and Fausto Polanco (about a mile north of the Rosarito Beach Hotel on the east side of the street) bring in crafts, art and furniture from Guadalajara, the artistic capital of Mexico.
Horseback riding - just a short drive east of Las Ventanas is All The Pretty Horses Rides & Rescue. Not only do they do wonderful rides for all levels of riders but they are the only official horse rescue in Baja. A visit up to the ranch is fulfilling. You ride, meet the rescues (horses, dogs, sheep, cats...) and get to know how just being there can change the future of some of these rescued animals. They do events, private rides, and a super fun Wine and Ride.
Drive 30 south minutes to Ensenada and a world of gourmet foods, wine and art are waiting for you. Downtown has a wonderful variety of furniture shops like Muebles la Mision. Cruise ships come into Todo Santos Bay in Ensenada so there are dozens of shops that have silver, tapestries, and ceramics from all over Mexico. Ensenada is also home to organic produce, fresh daily seafood, and fine wines produced in the Villa de Guadalupe which is 15 minutes inland from Ensenada.
There are so many wonderful choices, from taco stands to fine dining.
If you are in Rosarito proper, our favorites are Susanna's. and Sokuna's. Each has something unique to offer. Susanna's has fine dining and wonderful wines. Sukuna's has some of the best Asian fusion you have ever tasted, and the owner is a delight.
Coming down the coast, but before you hit Puerto Nuevo are some funky choices with amazing food.
Charly's Place at K37 has just the right blend of funky food, and fun. Dance at the disco on weekends enjoy a bubbling shrimp mohete and some kick-butt fish tacos.
Next is Ollie's Pizza. One of the most popular restaurants on the coast, Richard the owner, dishes up excellent pizza, salads and desserts that are over the top. He even has a gluten-free crust. And he opened a gelato store next to his restaurant with real Italian machines. The result - OMG!
Try Hacienda 43 for some great short ribs, a Tuesday Mexican buffet and a good hamburger! Lots of other good food too!
And last but not least is Happy Hour Resturante. What do you get when one of the most popular bartenders and chefs on the coast join forces? It's the best dive, funky, delish place around.
