"El Rosario, The Final Point" El Rosario by Bajabob55

El Rosario Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 2 photos

A needed spot

El Rosario is the final point in Baja California Norte that has a good variety of services available to the motoring tourist. There are a couple of modest motels, grocery stores and the last gasoline station going south until you get to Guerrero Negro in Baja Ca. Sur. There are as well, a number of small restaurants and food stands of which I have found Baja's Best Cafe to be the most tourist friendly. It is located in the center of town in a bright yellow building. The area also has the ruins of two old missions and roads leading into the surrounding desert areas. The lacking point is that there seems to be very little available in the way of guide services to the local cave paintings and other out-of-the-way attractions. Located on the Pacific side of the penninsula it has a very moderate climate for those who can't bear the summer heat of southern Baja. The local industries are mainly fishing and agriculture.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Moderate climate, friendly people and low crime rate.
  • Cons:Slightly over zealous local police when dealing with tourism.
  • In a nutshell:The last jumpoff point into the B.C. desert.
