What do I need to know before moving to Rosarito?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Rosarito, they said:

"There are many expats living in Northern Baja. Playas Tijuana, Rosarito and Ensenada areas. Some bought their property, some rent while they are looking for the right place. If people are new to the area, I usually mention that renting for the 1st year is best. This of course is to make sure that living in this area would be a good idea. Most end up with positive views on this and either buy or rent," remarked one expat who made the move to Rosarito.

"Before making the move to Rosarito, expats should familiarize themselves with the local culture, customs, and language. Expats should research local laws and any visa requirements they may need to stay in the country legally. They should also look into the cost of living in Rosarito, which can be surprisingly more affordable than in other parts of Mexico. Lastly, expats should take the time to understand the local medical system and decide if taking out private medical insurance is necessary," explained one expat living in Rosarito, Mexico.
