Campo Rene - Expandable Oceanview Homes
Campo Rene is conveniently located within walking distance of downtown Rosarito, a coastal resort city in the Mexican state of Baja California located approximately 16 miles (26 km) south of the U.S. border in Rosarito Beach Municipality. Often mistakenly called Rosarito Beach because of the well-known Rosarito Beach Hotel, the town of Rosarito is one part of the municipality named Playas de Rosarito ("Beaches of Rosarito").
Its beaches and dance clubs are a popular destination for young people from the United States during the Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends. Rosarito Beach is the seat of the municipality of Rosarito Beach. The city is the second largest in the Tijuana metropolitan area and southern beach city of the San Diego – Tijuana International metropolitan region.
Campo Rene is a gated community with 140 homes and 24/7 live security. It is one of the friendliest communities in Playas del Rosarito, with the average home-owner living there from 10-20 years. Direct access to the best sandy beach in Baja California encourages most home-owners to add upper, ocean view decks to their homes, so they can enjoy the coastal air.
Rosarito has historically been centered on tourism. It began with the Ortiz family's establishment of Rene's Bar, Restaurant, Trailer Park, and Motel in 1925. Rene served his town holding the position Delegado (Mayor) more than any other politician in Rosarito. Rene, a prominent businessman, helped create Rosarito from a ranch to a town which later became a city. When Rene was not able to serve his people from any longer he chose as his successor Hugo Torres Chabert, a friend and one-time owner of Rosarito Beach Hotel.
Renes is a beach break spot about 6 miles south of Rosarito Beach. To find the break, look for Rene's Sports Bar and Restaurant and make your way down the cliff on the dirt path. It is a good surf spot to check out when the area favorites are blown out. Many surfers drive right past it but when it's working the line up can get crowded. There are decent lefts and rights when the conditions are right.
