In February of 2010, Becky (my wife) and I went to Rosarito, Mexico for a relaxing week. We stayed at the Historical Rosarito Beach Hotel.

The Rosarito Beach Hotel was first opened to the public as a hotel in 1924. In 1932, the grand hotel foyer was constructed, (pictured below).

The beauty of the hotel, its Mexican ambiance, excellent food and drinks attracted Hollywood stars and filmmakers making the Rosarito Beach Hotel the place to be for the rich and famous.

The stratigraphic succession cropping out along the coast in the Tijuana-Rosarito Beach area is dominated by the Rosarito Beach Formation (new name), a Miocene succession of interbedded basalt flows, pyroclastic rocks, and clastic sedimentary rocks.

The climate is strongly influenced by the cold California Ocean-Current and Upwellings. As a result, temperatures are mild throughout the year with average temperatures ranging between 14 in February and 21 °C in July. We were there in February.

Half the week, was cool with clear skies. The other half was very windy with rain. We had to wear a jacket.
