Steps to the beach and adjacent to Playas boardwalk, which makes for a beautiful walk to catch the sunset. There are lots of eateries, coffee houses, and street vendors offering food and crafts. Also located in Playas is a Walmart, as well as a Cineopolis Movie Theater. Playas is a greater option than Rosarito Beach due to its close proximity to the border, boardwalk, walkability, no toll roads, near downtown Tijuana and yet very close to Rosarito Beach, Popotla, wineries, Ensenada, etc. Downtown Tijuana has a lovely cultural arts center with a botanical gardens. A casino is located a few blocks away. Casinos and racing events are also in downtown. Depending upon the tide, the beach is sandy right in front of the complex. If the tide is high, walk about 1/2 block north for a deeper sandy beach with a gentle sloped walkway leading to it. For more privacy, you can walk southerly along the ocean with fewer beach goers for more privacy and better fishing along the shore. The elevator is permanently out-of-order making the unit not accessible for disabled persons or others unable to climb stairs.
Being close to the border makes this ideal for day trips to San Diego, Sea World, San Diego Zoo, Legoland, Disneyland, etc. Save hundreds of dollars per night when comparing it to U.S. beachfront vacation housing costs.
