Welcome To Puerto Nuevo!  

Baja Norte, Mexico’s

Legendary Village of Langosta!


     Tasty “Puerto Nuevo-Style Lobster,” or as the locals say, “langosta” is the reason travelers come from all over the world to visit the famous Mexican village of Puerto Nuevo.  Located just below the USA/Mexico border, south of San Diego, California, Puerto Nuevo has been a popular playground of the west for both USA residents and Mexicans alike.

Whether you arrive for lunch, dinner, or a few extended, carefree days, visitors are sure to find the village and the folks of Puerto Nuevo charming.

Slipping below the San Diego/San Ysidro border crossing, visitors hug the coastline of Tijuana and Rosarito for a mere 30 minutes drive south on a modern toll road.  The drive along the coast is mesmerizing and rivals that of many top destinations of the world!  Once entering the arches of the village, visitors will find 30+ langosta houses, Mexican art, crafts, furniture, glass, pottery, and clothing from the various states of Mexico.

The free road from Rosarito to Puerto Nuevo

is a shoppers paradise!

The streets of Puerto Neuvo look pretty sleepy until about 10 – 11 am daily, when the local fishermen return with their daily harvest ready to serve up lunch and dinner to anyone who pops into town. The Mexican craft vendors, store owners, jewelry peddlers, and artists begin to open their shops, and the hamlet of Puerto Nuevo is in full swing.
