But that, as the saying goes, is just the tip of the iceberg. That’s an especially fitting saying for this resort city.

Rosarito was home to Baja Studios, a several miles south of the city’s downtown, which was built in 1996 by Fox Studios specifically for the filming of James Cameron’s blockbuster movie Titanic.

With its 17-million-gallon saltwater tank, at the time the world’s largest, and its picturesque oceanfront setting, the studio also has been the setting for other seathemed movies including Master & Commander and Robert Redford’s All Is Lost.

Just a few miles south of Baja Studios is Puerto Nuevo, a quaint development of around 30 restaurants and shops that cater to lobster lovers. Not only have millions visited here since the 1950s, it has given its name to one of the most popular preparations

Rosarito Beach also is the coastal gateway to the Guadalupe Valley Wine Country.
