I just came back from a very short getaway to Puerto Nuevo, Mexico. Puerto Nuevo is a little town in Baja California just past Rosarito Beach. My mom and I decided to take a road trip out there and spend a few days relaxing and eating tacos.
We took the scenic route
We stayed at Puerto Nuevo Baja, Hotel & Villas for 4 days.
Our “Garden” view
This was our view. Our room was advertised as a “Garden View” but we ended up having a beautiful view of the ocean and the pool area.
We did spend 4th of July here which was a change for us since we usually do a family thing. there was obviously no big 4th of July celebration but we did get to see a beautiful equestrian show that included charros and folklorico dancers.
The beautiful dancers
The riders representing their flags
The resort was beautiful but we did not have any beach access or AC. The AC was fine because the air was cool and balmy at night so we really didn’t need it. The room had a ceiling fan that did the trick. However, having no beach access did kind of suck. We had to drive to Rosarito Beach to be able to go to the shore. The back of the resort does have a cliff that overlooks the ocean and the waves do crash there pretty hard so its a nice picture spot.
We ended up having a great time though. The sports bar hosted a singer for the weekend who took requests in Spanish and English. Their drink were delicious and relatively cheap.

I came back home very burnt (I burned while sitting in the shade. No joke) but happy to have spent time with my mama.
Now I have to get ready for my Washington D.C./St. Louis trip in 2 weeks!
