Playas de Rosarito is recognized as a sun and beach destination; favorite of both Baja California locals and tourists.


Here you will find rest, fun, inspiration and of course memorable gastronomy; like the famous Puerto Nuevo Style Lobster, which is served with red rice, butter, red molcajete sauce, whole beans and flour tortillas. A true delight!


But how was he born? It was in the 1950s, thanks to several fishermen who, to attract tourism, offered fishing trips and just left here. Their wives prepared this delicious dish (now known worldwide) that several tourists began to try thanks to the invitation of the families and became popular.


Over the years they have been attracting tourists, becoming a mandatory stop and becoming an authentic Baja California dish.


Currently, more than 100,000 lobsters a year are served in Puerto Nuevo and there are 30 restaurants that prepare lobster in this style, although each one gives it its own representative touch.


After living the experience in the restaurant of your choice, you can walk through its cobblestone streets and find several local craft shops, sweets and desserts, as well as enjoy the sea view. Come and try “The Best Lobster in the world”!


We recommend: La Casa de la Langosta, Puerto Nuevo I and II and Restaurant Villa Ortega’s
