Emerson professor, students, community leaders collaborate to rebuild Rosarito.
Emerson College December 2, 2010 By Nathan Homan.

Rosarito, Mexico was once a bustling tourist destination in the Baja Peninsula, less than 30 miles south of San Diego. But within the last three years, the extreme violence between the Drug Cartels and the Mexican Government combined with negative media attention have driven tourists away, depleting the community's economy. While the frontline of the war on drugs is considered to be Juarez, some 835 miles east of Rosarito, the impact of the horrific war images has driven people away from Rosarito.

A Committed Vision for Rosarito Beach and Baja
July, 2010

Mayor Hugo Torres: A Committed Vision for Rosarito Beach and Baja.
July 31, 2010 By Ron Raposa.

In the 1980s's Hugo Torres led the tough 12-year campaign to make Rosario its own city, independent from Tijuana. When voters made that a reality in 1995, he was appointed the city's first mayor.

When Torres' term ended in 1998, he thought his time in office was over. The long-time owner of the landmark Rosarito Beach Hotel and father of five figured he'd devote more time to business interests and family.

Beach Hotel History
USA Today Travel Tips. June 1, 2010 by Raechel Donahue, Demand Media.

The town of Rosarito sprouted up around the famed Rosarito Beach Hotel, a movie star hangout since it opened its massive carved doors in 1926, through which, as the sign above the entrance boasts, passed "the most beautiful women in the world." Take in the history by wandering around the hotel, viewing the Mexican art and old photographs, and make a stop in the Beachcomber Bar for a Cocoloco (a pina colada inside a fresh coconut) before strolling out on the long pier to get a closer view of the seals basking in the sun on Seal Rock. Spend the rest of the day cruising the scores of shops and kiosks that line the downtown boulevard, or head down the beach for an hour of horseback riding and a dip in the ocean.

Rosarito Talks Back

Americans may be safer than they think as tourists in Baja California.

Darey Castro is a minor celebrity in Mexico‘s banda and grupera music community. Though he‘s had several songs on the charts, his greatest claim to fame is surviving an attempt on his life. In 2004, he was shot four times during an incident that killed four of his band mates. The bloodletting occurred as a result of his affiliation with two warring drug cartels. Today he lives in Los Angeles and says he is forbidden to return to his native country.
