ROSARITO BEACH, BAJA CALIFORNIA, MEXICO—Noted singer Cuba Gooding Sr., was presented a key to Rosarito and named a goodwill ambassador for the city by Mayor Hugo Torres at a weekend concert here.
That’s the official, White House turkey! You’ve probably seen a video clip of a President smiling, laying his hand on a humongous white bird and officially “pardoning” it, as the beginning of Thanksgiving.
A year ago to continue my vision for a Beach house/guest home for returning students and their families I enquired at Calafia and met my new found friends Max and Kathy Katz, who represent the selling of many fine condo and homes along the gold coast of Baja.
The opening of an English-language mediation center in this city to hear disputes has been postponed until early 2010.
My aging dad – and many of my much younger friends – couldn’t quite fathom why my husband and I were heading to Rosarito Beach for a long weekend with our 5-year-old daughter in August. Swine flu! Shootouts! Drug wars! Kidnappings! Carjackings! All this, and worse, had become synonymous in their minds with the Mexican border area around Tijuana.
With the collapse of the money markets on both sides of the border, it had become almost impossible –or so it seamed- for Baja developers to finish their projects
Recently, Calafia Paradise Resort hosted a charity event to benefit Responsibility, an organization that’s been educating the children who live at the Tijuana dump for over 20 years. They give hope and a chance for a better future to the poorest of the poor.
