    Puerto Nuevo Facts

  • Popularity of this town started in 1956 when local women started dropping fresh lobsters into pots of boiling oil and serving them to their few customers.

    Gradually, the Puerto Nuevo has grown immensely from one restaurant to over 30 restaurants so far, including bars, shops, art galleries, hotels and tourist services.

    Fiesta de La Langosta, the famous festival celebrating this crustacean, takes place around the second week of every October.

    During the Lobster Festival, which lasts two days, visitors have the opportunity to taste exquisite dishes with lobster, served with Baja California wines in a cheerful and unique atmosphere.

    The Wine and Lobster Route is the name of the road that connects Puerto Nuevo with the wine-producing area of Baja California, in Ensenada.

    Each place's individual icon, lobster and wine, are recognized worldwide. We highly recommend driving this route.

    Driving Distances
    The lobster town is approximately 35 miles south of the border, 12 miles south of Rosarito and 40 miles north of Ensenada.
