Puerto Nuevo: the lobster capital of Baja

Just south of Tijuana, on the west coast of Baja California, lies the tiny town of Puerto Nuevo, often described as the "Lobster Capital of Baja" due to the sheer number of crustaceans caught and consumed in its restaurants. Including the greater Rosarito area, it's thought to number over 1 million lobsters a year. It might only have 150 residents, but that hasn't stopped the town from having more than 30 restaurants serving up seafood to hungry passersby. When you've had your fill, head back to your waterfront Puerto Nuevo vacation rental, or hit the sandy beaches and surf.

Things to do

Puerto Nuevo is a charming spot with nearby attractions

Part of the charm of staying in a Puerto Nuevo vacation rental is its size. That said, if you're looking for more than beaches and lobster, you're not far away from the attractions in Rosarito and Tijuana. Movie buffs should swing by Foxploration, the studio which made James Cameron's Titanic. At the attached museum you can discover how this epic film was created. Further north in Tijuana, you can spend a day at the Caliente Race Track, trying your luck on the dogs. If you fancy a spot of retail therapy, you can score a bargain in the city's main shopping area.

Activities

Water sports and seafood feasts at Puerto Nuevo

You'll likely spend most of your days lounging around on the long stretches of Baja California beach when you stay at the Puerto Nuevo vacation rental. To get the blood flowing, you can hop into the cool ocean or hit the water on paddleboards and glide along the coast. In need of a little pampering? Drop into one of the spas for a deep tissue massage. If you're a fan of crustaceans, you've come to the right place. There are more than 30 restaurants serving up lobster near your Puerto Nuevo vacation rental, so you'll be spoiled for choice when you look for your seafood feast.

Weather

Skip the crowds and visit Puerto Nuevo in late spring

Throngs of wintertime crowds hit the beaches of Baja California between December and April, when they escape the cold weather further north. While the town doesn't suffer from the same hordes of families and spring breakers found in Tijuana, you can still save a few bucks by nabbing a Puerto Nuevo vacation rental between May and June. Not only will the sun still be beating down, through endlessly blue skies before the annual rainy season begins its summer downpour, you'll also likely have much of the beaches all to yourself.

Natural features

Get up close to migrating whales at Puerto Nuevo

One of the Mexican peninsula's biggest draws is the possibility it offers for wildlife watching. If you stay in a Puerto Nuevo vacation rental in the winter, you can join one of the daily whale-watching charters to see these gentle giants crash around in the warm waters. Getting face-to-face with some of the largest creatures in the sea is a humbling experience. Back on land, the desert scenery provides a habitat for more than 300 bird species, many of which live and breed in the giant cacti. Look out for hawks, mockingbirds and Mexico's national bird, the crested caracara.
