This seaside village now attracts a broad section of visitors from all age
groups. Over the years, Puerto Nuevo has grown from one famous lobster restaurant
to over 30!
Although big lobster dinners are no longer available for a buck, you can
still fill up on a great lobster meal for about $14.00. If you are only
moderately hungry, splitting a full meal with a friend is a great way to
go...just order extra flour tortillas! Each meal includes lobster (small,
medium or large - your choice), rice, beans, tortillas, chips and salsa.
Cold beer is available to cool off hungry hombres on those warm Baja
afternoons, and tequila is never far away for those who just finished
playing in the ocean!
Puerto Nuevo has grown up a lot in the last few years, and the village now
includes bars, curious shops, and other stores. Strolling mariachis add
some ambience to the restaurants and street corners.
While famous for it's lobster, most of the coastline north and south of Puerto
Nuevo consists of low bluffs and rocky beaches. Nothing wrong with that,
and sunsets here can be wonderful, but better beaches await the Baja
traveler further north towards Rosarito, or further south towards La Salina
or better yet, Ensenada.
