Chillin and Riding

A travel blog entry by hawkinsw


... about four hours later still excited and chattering. They rode up to the top of a mountain and could see all the way to the ocean. The rescue operation was amazing. The cowboys that rode with them were chill, funny, and unobtrusive. The blue healer dogs chased scents all the way up and back. They were tempted to steal the kittens at the stables. The two women who were helping out that day were a bit ditzy, but that may have been ...

San Diego Sunshine

... Antipasto salad, and combination lasagna and spaghetti plate with an Italian sausage and meatball and rolls. Now, we all split this. The salad serves 3 - 4 people and the combo plate serves at least 3 of us. The meatball is as big as a softball and the Italian sausage is homemade at the restaurant. It was so good and we are stuffed. We picked a good time to head down there. When we left there were at least 30 people ...

Soft Landing

... and Aiden (my grandson) arrived and there was a fabulous reunion and more wine in grand celebration. There is a theme here right?! after a short while we loaded my belongings into Todd's truck and drove to his apartment. We visited for just a very short while and then ended our day with a long night's sleep. Todd's place is right downtown and he worried the street noise would keep me awake. I can assure you it did not.

Re-Starting Our World Adventure

This is a top pick!

... a rice steamer sentimental??).

The very next day, as newly minted retirees without the seniors discounts, we re-started our big world trip. Deb B, Lorraine M and Anne K dropped us at the airport (more tears and hugs) and we were off to San Diego to catch a boat to Hawaii. Why San Diego? Given the four flights it had taken
to get ‘home’ and all of the security and bureaucracy hassle that goes along with that, we wanted to get back to Asia in a much ...

... similar to the one at dreamworld. Only Bek and Callum went on it and after they got off wet, wet, wet but the sun was out so that was on there side.The final ride for the day was the Sky Tower. It is a tower that you go up 300ft and revolve around it, and you get views of San Diego and Sea World. We made our way to the bus station to catch it back to the trolley line. When we arrived i looked at the time table and realised we had only ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews La Fonda Hotel, Restaurant and Spa Rosarito

    Paradise found


    First of all let me make my bias known...i'm not a fan of sterile, anonymous for our family of four (2 adults, 2 teenagers) la fonda was a kind of paradise. It is beautifully situated above a lovely beach with swimming, boogie boarding and surfing. surrounded by banana trees and flowers, the sound of the ocean, delicious food, a family of chickens running around the gorgeous patio restaurant...the rooms are rustic and lovely and yes the balcony and stairs felt abit rickety ( I wouldn't want to be there with a toddler )..but every night I watched the full moon on the ocean and every morning early I walked the beach from side to side.

    Unique cliffside hotel - but overpriced food


    This place really impressed me for its proximitely to the shady "border towns" of Northern Baja as being really nice and charming. The hotel is really unique... no two rooms are alike! Make sure you check out a couple available rooms when you arrive because some are really run down and some are new and gorgeous. All have wonderful private balconies though. I would highly recommend rooms 20 and 21. Stay away from the "second building" as it is really run down.

    The down side is the extremely overpriced food. I mean $20 for an okay meal in Baja?



    My friend from San Diego spoke of this roadside paradise not even an hour south of the border. Coming from New England I had no idea what to expect but it turned out to be the highlight of my vacation out West! We made our way down an ancient staircase to our room which was large, breezy and had an SPECTACULAR view of the Pacific. The patio was private, comfy and wonderful. We spent time on the beach, lounged around the room and after taking a few photos (which have become screen savers on some friends computers), we went up to the restaurant for an incredible dining experience! Being with the most beautiful blonde girl on Baja, I was able to overlook the instant potatoes that the last writer mentioned! Listening to the lovely Spanish guitar, we enjoyed our meal and made friends with one of the local cats who was "working" the dining room floor. Fell asleep, slightly drunk, incredibly satisfied, and woke to the sounds of pounding surf...then enjoyed the pancakes with the coconut syrup and a bloody Mary for breakfast! Can't wait to go back sometime!!! 5 Stars!

    La Cucaracha....


    We came down and looked around for a place for our anniversary vacation and from the outside the rooms all looked quaint and all original. We chose the room closest to the beach on a secluded steep (dangerous paved) path, thinking it would be nice. The decor was strange; the fireplace is located in a pit about 5 feet deep with seating around, built in; this could be dangerous if inebriated...

    Charming getaway


    I always describe La Fonda Hotel as charmingly

    rustic. I enjoy opening the windows to our room

    and listening to the ocean waves. Very peaceful,

    interesting rooms and great food. Love the banana

    pancakes with the coconut maple syrup.

    Great Beach side Hotel


    We just got back from a great weekend at La Fonda and as always had a great time. We went down with 5 couples for my 37th birthday and it was perfect. Had a small problem with the water in the showers but that was the first time that has happened to us in over 20 stays. I would highly reccomend this place if you are looking for a great romantic get away for you and the wife it is very rustic but clean and the restaurant is by far the best on the Baja coast!!!!! We love going back to La Fonda because it is simple and very low key. We always bring a few extra Blankets and pillows to add to our comfort but it is still our favorite place to stay. If you are open minded and do not mind Rustic accomadations then La Fonda is for you.

    We love La Fonda


    La Fonda is an amazing getaway from SoCal. . .great for traveler's who want amazing service and a unique atmosphere. Inexpensive in American terms, although pricey compared to many parts of Mex, the specialness of the experience makes it so worthwhile. It is a great adults only trip due to the great bartenders and strong drinks, and fun to bring the kids as well due to the beach and friendly atmosphere.

    Mui romantico


    Even though we own a home in Bajamar ( 10 mins away) we call LaFonda our home away from home.. Service is excellent, the food is beyond compare. Music is wonderful and I miss it already!!!

    Oh my what a neat place


    neat rooms, very different, dont expect the ritz but these rooms have beach front views. old round clay fire places to warm the room. will bring wood to room and start for you. dinners are awesome and very reasonable. nice deck to eat on as well as bar area fun place all very nice, roosters running around deck during breakfast, which by the way sunday brunch had so much food and free bloody mary's... gotta love that..

    Great beach acess


    la fonda is a nice beach front hotel with reasonable prices and a good food. also nearby resturants are good great quick get away.
