Can anyone in town help me with a transfer? I can do cash or BofA for $300 PStars. Also, does anyone know where I can get some fresh bananas?

Re: Official Rosarito Thread

Hey guys thanks for all the info!
I'm ready to pack up, move to mexico, leave my job, and start grinding (no more gf either)...I'm looking for a house to move into (nervous about getting my own place ) if there are any options out there. 34 years old, limit omaha/8 is my game but play others occasionally. I like to have fun but take grinding seriously. I was on Bovada here in the states but they ended poker and ignition poker has low volume for omaha/8. I'm looking to move early to mid may. Thanks in advance..

Re: Official Rosarito Thread

Was driving up through Rosarito the other day from the South, and saw that the 2nd tower at Palacio Del Mar (that concrete shell that's been sitting there since '08) is starting to be developed/worked on again. Some kind of steel work on the sides?

I guess we have further confirmation the real estate market is back down here (for now), lol...

Re: Official Rosarito Thread

Still have a room available in a spacious 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath newer home.

The house has ocean and city views, and a large terrace which also has amazing ocean and city views, and is great for relaxing, sunbathing, meditating, bananas, star gazing, bbq's, etc..

Your room has some of the best views in the house, including views of Coronado Island right from your bedroom window.

$425 a month includes utilities and your own bathroom across the hall. The room also comes with its own microwave and mini frig/freezer

It is approximately 30 minutes to the San Diego/Tijuana, Mexico Border,
10 minutes to the beach, downtown Rosarito, and the toll road (freeway).

We are also approximately a 7 hour drive from Vegas, for those who may want to commute to the WSOP

Re: Official Rosarito Thread

So how would it be for a female to move down there solo? I was born and raised in Southern California and have been going down there my whole life for surf and camping trips so I'm very familiar with the area. I also have a good friend with a vacation home in Baja Malibu and could probably stay there but they have too many people always coming and going and I'd like to stay focused and grind down there. Any insight would be appreciated! Thank you

Need to make a PStars deposit; I noticed that the OXXO option is now missing from the web site. I can't fire up the client right now but can anyone confirm if the OXXO deposit option is still available for PStars? I'm referring to the option where you enter the amount and the software gives you a barcode to print out and you then take that to OXXO and pay in cash.

Re: Official Rosarito Thread

Wanted to report a really positive experience in Ensenada from last night: I'm in town for most of WCOOP and when I left Las Vegas (five days ago) I had a tiny tickle in my throat. I didn't want to cancel my trip for that, so I decided to come to Ensenada anyways.

I tried to fight off the impending cold/flu with teas and aspirin (things like that) but it wasn't working and I felt in really bad shape last night. So my girlfriend went with me to one of those pharmacies with an attached doctor's office and they were amazing there. She quickly diagnosed me and came up with a cycle of antibiotics and pain medicine that have helped me tremendously. She recommended the injectable antibiotics because they work faster and that was new to me since everything in the US seems to be tablet antibiotics, never had a shot before. The doctor was efficient and very knowledgeable. It also helped that she was an attractive older lady in spike heels

All-in, with the consult and series of meds, it was 500 pesos which is basically nothing compared to what it would have cost me in the US. My girlfriend said that we went to a "better" pharmacy with name brand meds; if we had gone to a generic pharmacy it would have been much cheaper.

Fast forward to this morning and I'm feeling A LOT better. I just have to rehydrate and finish out the antibiotic shots (the doctor showed my girlfriend how to do it) and I'll be back to 100%

Re: Official Rosarito Thread

i had a really solid experience ~3 yrs ago with a veterinarian down there in ensenada as well, veterinario gusmar iirc. one of my pups had a horrific ear infection and he cleaned it out (albeit not gently- i dont think that would have even been possible), and hooked her up with some antibiotics and doggie dope. it cost next to nothing, compared to back home in the states, and he was very attentive to all of my concerns

Anyone know of a good sports bar in TJ or Rosarito that'd be showing the Ohio State/Oklahoma game tomorrow night? Is college football even a thing here?

Plan B Bar. It's north of Rosarito, south of Tijuana, off the 1D highway (pay road), across from San Antonio Del Mar in Baja Malibu
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Plan-B/173080112744895
https://www.yelp.com/biz/plan-b-rosarito


Chris, the owner, shows all the games/will take requests and he will be betting on tons of games himself. Great spot, decent burgers too

Roommate and I drive the 20 mins up there from Calafia (south of Rosarito) to watch games often as it's our favorite spot

Re: Official Rosarito Thread

I'll ramble since I've wandered out to 6 camping spots in Baja & have read up on some others (farther away). It's getting cold, so Sea of Cortez will be calling again at some point.

El Salto (West edge of Valle de Guadalupe).
Pay at the gate, big campground with a lot of nooks to choose from, great short hike in the a.m. to a waterfall/scenic spot. Only about ~15 minute drive from Cocina de Dona Esthela for breakfast too. For short getaway or to do Valle while camping, this would be an easy spot from Rosarito/TJ.

San Antonio de Necua (Valle de Guadalupe - about 2 miles East of L.A. Cetto).
You literally drive through a (one-track ) sandy river bed, up into a Kumiai town (replete with native lanugage & spanish on the signs). If they're there at the gate, pay the lady and you have the whole campground to yourself. Bunch of farm animals nearby, far enough away for that super-clear sky, felt safe and there is some $$ in that town (for Mexico).

Constitucion 1857 - National Park.
Was about 3 hours from TJ, including ~20 miles on dirt roads upon leaving Ojos Negros (dairy region where they're going to build a new Ensenada Airport). Camped @ the famous Laguna Hanson, only downside was the free-grazing cattle literally came w/in 10 feet of our tent (while we were hiding in the car), should probably set up barriers next time, lol. Nice to get the scent/look of pine trees while still in Baja.

Erendira
~90 minutes South of Ensenada, there's an iconic cluster of rocks that we wanted to camp at, but with only 2 people it seemed smarter to camp in front of the hostel on the hill, lol. Rocks/beach below with a huge group of people/somehwere else on the beach would be legit in that area, but you're unprotected there and Baja forums said be aware in those parts (generally speaking).

San Felipe
Camped under a palapa @ Pete's Camp, had it all to ourselves the week before X-mas. Probably better spots here, but got the job done. It was really cool to see the tide ~1 mile out before sunset, then wake up with the Sea 20 meters from out tent (one of the largest tidal bores in the World from the flow of the Colorado River Delta south of Mexicali).

Bahia de Los Angeles/Campo Archelon
7 hours South of Mexicali, REALLY legit spot with the old volcanic/geologic formations making a sweet cove. Would be great to chill/fish with a kayak for a couple of days. The Valley of the Giants/huge cacti and wildflower blooms (in March after long winter rains) on the drive in were also stunning. Drive for hours through zero-population to get there, reminds you of how vast Baja is.

Had a 22 mile rough-dirt road detour in a Honda, was definitely glad to be packing a full spare in case.

Still on the list

San Pedro de Mortir - Highest point (?) in Baja with an observatory @ 10,000 feet, supposedly you can see both the Sea of Cortez @ Pacific Ocean on a Clear Day. They get a decent amount of snow up there too in the winter.

Canon de Guadalupe - drive through Laguna Salada (dry lakebed below sea level, the San Andreas fault runs through/near there), hot springs and old native rock paintings (like there are up-and-down much of Baja). Think they even have a bus that runs to/from San Diego for big groups.

La Poma/Km 133.5. Made a note in cell phone while driving by, looks like a pretty legit volcanic cove a ways South of Puertocitos (and still 1-day getaway driving distance from TJ/Rosarito).

Mission San Borja
There's a lot of ruins of the Missions that were built in Baja in the 1700s & 1800s (the last one being in Valle de Guadalupe). There's one that's restored near Bahia de Los Angeles that lets you camp. If you have a good 4x4 or rent a driver from Bahia de Los Angeles to get there...

Mission Santa Maria & Oasis/Hot Springs
Speaking of 4X4's, this one you have to go ~15 miles off-road and the last mile is supposed to be tough - the reward is your own personal oasis/hot springs in the middle of nowhere (so a large group is also probably advised, lol).

The people on the Baja Nomad forums generally say the closer you camp to the road, the more dangerous it is. The farther away, the better (if you're gangster-camping - Baja is wide, wide open once you travel South - could do that for months/til your supplies run out if you want).

/fin ramble.

Thanks for the mad details! Taking my girl and dog down there exploring this week so this is great. Valle de Guadalupe seems like a pretty obvious and good area to explore.

Cheers!
