Playas de Rosarito, which lies approximately 20km southwest of Tijuana, is celebrating its 128th year as a city on May 14, 2013. The city will be holding events for the remainder of the week, highlighted by a festival on Saturday and Sunday.

Playas de Rosarito, which is often referred to solely as Rosarito, has gone through multiple stages as a community since its humble beginnings. The area was first settled by Spanish missionaries in the early 1800’s and later developed into a ranching community during the next 100 years. The city was officially founded in 1885, by rancher Don Joaquín Machado, when a land title was granted by President Porfirio Díaz.
